|Is there any way to access the match text in MySQL rlike selects?|
Hi. I am doing a select like this in MySQL 5:
select * from foo where bar rlike '(.*),(.*)';
The specific example here is made up. Anyway, I'd like to be able to get to the matched text from bar, like I can with various languages regexp libraries. Is this functionality exposed at all in MySQL? I've looked at the docs and can't see any indication that it is, so this might just be wishful thinking.
