No, it just depends on the query optimizer. Some databases have query optimizers that know how to use an index when told "LIKE 'blah%'". Some database have query optimizers that know how to use an index when told the equivalent thing using SUBSTR(). Some databases have optimizers that know how to do both. Some neither.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
