A MD5 stored procedure for Drizzle… in C

So, just in case that wasn’t evil enough for you… perhaps you have something you want to know the MD5 checksum of. So, you could just do this:

drizzle> select md5('Hello World!');
| md5('Hello World!')              |
| ed076287532e86365e841e92bfc50d8c |
1 row in set (0 sec)

But that is soooo boring.

Since we have the SSL libs already loaded into Drizzle, and using my very evil libtcc plugin… we could just implement it in C. We can even use malloc!

drizzle> SELECT LIBTCC("#include …

Stored Procedures/Functions for Drizzle

Previously, in “Thoughts on Thoughts on Drizzle” I theorized that one of the major reasons why we did not see lots of people jumping at stored procedures in MySQL was that it wasn’t in their native language (for lack of a better term). We’ve seen External Language Stored Procedures for MySQL that let you write stored procedures in some other languages…. but I felt something was missing.

Firstly, I wanted a language I was really familiar with and comfortable writing complex things in.

Secondly, it should be compiled so that it runs as fast as possible.

Thirdly, it shouldn’t just be linking to a pre-compiled library (drizzle function plugins do that …

MySQL: Refactoring a Stored Function

Hi All!

I was just reading PlanetMySQL and noticed Mike Hillyer's recent post on a user-friendly age function for MySQL. Basically, this function accepts two DATETIME values and returns an indication of the time between the two dates in the form of a human-readable string. For example:

| TimeDiffUnits('2001-05-01', '2002-01-01') |
| 8 Months |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Just for fun, I decided to try and refactor it, and I'm …

Using the google graph API with MySQL stored functions

After reading Alex’s blog post on generating graphs using google’s graph API I decided to do something similar for MySQL. I created a stored function that takes a height, width and a graph type from the list of available graph types in the graph API. The function returns a url to a google graph that [...]
