in thread "Cannot use index" with DBD::SQLite

When you give the COLLATE NOCASE DESC option in the index it means convert all the text to lower case and store them in descending order for case insensitive search. So, to make use of that index, you have to give the same collation again in your query, and the following should work.

SELECT profile_id FROM profile INDEXED BY idx_name WHERE name == ? COL +LATE NOCASE

If you recreated the index without this collation, then it means you cannot do case insensitive search, or have to convert things to upper or lower case every time like below.

SELECT profile_id FROM profile INDEXED BY idx_name WHERE lower(name) = += lower(?)

Although you have found a workaround, this may be useful for someone else, facing a similar problem.

[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
