InstantDB: Re: ORDER BY bug


Stas

Unfortunately, I think you have to do it pretty much the way I suggested. I
know other databases have the ability to choose collation sequences. Others
allow you to include arbitrary expressions in the ORDER BY clause. In fact,
that latter feature is one of the most requested features for InstantDB and
is pretty high on the list of things I'd like to see included too. However I
don't think it's going to happen in a timeframe that's likely to be useful
to you.

Sorry.
