Re: InstantDB: HELP URGENT


Drew

You'd probably have to write a function, text_to_number say, and then 
do something like:

SELECT my_text, text_to_number (my_text) FROM mytable ORDER BY 2

Writing a function is easy. There are lots of examples in the functions 
directory. Just take any one as a template, edit it, compile and add 
the result to your classpath.
