No. You are absolutely wrong on all counts!

First. Look at the post I was responding to. The premise was, that it is much clearer from '=' x 80 that there are 80 '=' than if you used


so your 'correction' is wrong in context.

Secondly, your assumption that that string is a "SECTION_SEPERATOR" is wrong. It cannot be right, because you have no basis upon which to reach that conclusion.

But mostly, trading use constant for that vacuous, puerile, slow, stupid, braindead, idiotic, stupid -- did I say stupid already? -- worthless, pathetic, fscked-up, oxymoronic piece of crap is ... um .. oh dear, I seems to have run out of appropriate adjectives.

Update: Oooh. OOoh! I thought of one: fatuous. ( I didn't use that already did I? )

[Corion]: Meh. SQL window functions would even make pagination easy/trivial (but not performant), as rank() over (partition by user order by timestamp) / 10 as page would give me a page number for each item, with 10 items per page.
[Corion]: Of course, the query performance for "all items on page 10" is likely worse than rank() between 100 and 109 , but if that means I can write 15 lines of SQL instead of needing to think about how to partition things and how to encode the page size...
[Corion]: ... that would be nice. But alas, I'm currently tied to SQLite as minimum implementation, and it doesn't implement window functions :-(
[Corion]: And I'm not aware of any other serverless SQL implementation that even reaches the capability of SQLite, not to mention surpasses it
