Problem with CONCAT function (bug?)

I'm needed to insert large BLOBs into a database. With the 1MB packet
limit, sending larger amounts of data would be difficult, so I had a neat
idea. I would do an initial insert of an empty record and get the
auto_insert ID from the response, and then loop through, appending data to
the record.

My table is simple. One unsigned int auto_increment field (DataID), and
one long blob field (BinaryData).

When I loop through the data to send, I run:

UPDATE BinaryTable SET BinaryData=CONC AT(BinaryData, 'My binary data
here') WHERE DataID = 35
The binary data I insert I escape null characters, backslashes, single and
double quotes. The data seems to insert fine.

The problem is that as I increase the amount of data in the field, CONCAT
seems to drop all but the last 416k of the data. Thus if I loop through
adding 400k blocks at a time (Which I do) I am left with at most 800k of
data in the blob field.

Using 4k blocks I end up with 419k of data in the field when all is said
and done.

Please let me know if/when this will be fixed, and if there is a
work around that might be used, r a better way to insert BLOB data is
known.

I've got 3 columns in a mysql database that I am trying to join. I'm using CONCAT(), but it's giving me NULL results. This has worked for me before ... What am I doing wrong? Here's a straight select: mysql> select peopleID, firstName, middleInit, lastname -> from people; +----------+-----------+------------+------------+ | peopleID | firstName | middleInit | lastname |

I hope this is on-topic in c.l.c - it's about the C preprocessor more than the language per se, more generally about the K&R behavior, and most specifically about the Sun cpp which is why I've cross posted there. The test case below is taken from an Imake setup (yes, old, I know). There's a Concat() macro which uses old-style /**/ for token pasting (we are not allowed to assume ANSI so ## isn't allowed). I'm trying to paste AND expand...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies.
