Genezzo::Havok::SQLCompare - SQL comparison functions
WHERE value IN (list)
Returns TRUE if the value is present in the list, else FALSE. NOT IN is slightly different: returns NULL if any list item is NULL, return FALSE if the value matches any list item, else returns TRUE.
WHERE value LIKE (pattern) WHERE value LIKE (pattern, escape_char)
Returns TRUE if the value matches the pattern. In the pattern, a '%' (percent sign) matches zero or more characters, and an '_' (underscore) matches exactly one character. These characters can be matched as literals if they are preceded by the optional escape character.
IN has list support, but no IN subquery support.
LIKE has a "functional" syntax, instead of the standard 'LIKE pattern [ESCAPE escape_char]'.
