MySQL - if field content meets condition, send email?

JT
Hi,

I'm sure this isn't a hard one, can someone help?

I'm adding a new record to a MySQL database every x seconds. I need
to be able to inspect the content of a certain field in this incoming
record and, when a condition is met, send an email.

I suppose I could have some script inspect the latest record every x
seconds and use sendmail, but I'm unfamiliar with scripting daemons on
Linux and was wondering if I can use MySQL itself to both watch for
the condition and call the sendmail script.

What would be the best way to go about it?

Thanks

JT

Hi, I hope this question isn't too far off topic....I'm almost at my wits end trying to figure this out. I have a Mysql database and I wish to automate the backup of the database because I don't wish to rely on the web host doing so. I am using the "dbsender.php" script, which is written for this exact purpose (available at hotscripts.com). If I execute the script via my browser, the database is emailed to me in a 'gzip' format, which...

Hi, I have a list and I want to find the first element that meets a condition. I do not want to use 'filter', because I want to come out of the iteration as soon as the first element is found. I have implemented it this way, may be, there should be a built in hiding somewhere in the standard libraries? def exists(iterable, condition): ''' Return the first element in iterble that meets the condition.

You may be wondering why you would want to put your files “into” the database, rather than just onto the file-system. Well, most of the time, you wouldn’t. In situations where your PHP application needs to store entire files, the preferred method is to save the file onto the server’s file-system, and store the physical location of the file in your database. This is generally considered to be the easiest and fastest way to store files. ...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
