◆ compatible_field_size()

bool Field::compatible_field_size ( uint  field_metadata,

int *  order_var 
) const
virtual

Check to see if field size is compatible with destination.

This method is used in row-based replication to verify that the slave's field size is less than or equal to the master's field size. The encoded field metadata (from the master or source) is decoded and compared to the size of this field (the slave or destination).

The comparison is made so that if the source data (from the master) is less than the target data (on the slave), -1 is returned in *order_var. This implies that a conversion is necessary, but that it is lossy and can result in truncation of the value.

If the source data is strictly greater than the target data, 1 is returned in *order_var. This implies that the source type can is contained in the target type and that a conversion is necessary but is non-lossy.

If no conversion is required to fit the source type in the target type, 0 is returned in *order_var.

Parameters
field_metadataEncoded size in field metadata
order_varPointer to variable where the order between the source field and this field will be returned.
Returns
true if this field's size is compatible with the master's field size, false otherwise.

Reimplemented in Field_bit, Field_string, and Field_new_decimal.

◆ convert_decimal2longlong()

longlong Field::convert_decimal2longlong ( const my_decimal val,

Conversion from decimal to longlong.

◆ pack() [1/2]

Field::pack ( uchar to,
const uchar from,
uint  max_length,
bool  low_byte_first 
)
virtual

Pack the field into a format suitable for storage and transfer.

To implement packing functionality, only the virtual function should be overridden. The other functions are just convenience functions and hence should not be overridden.

The value of low_byte_first is dependent on how the packed data is going to be used: for local use, e.g., temporary store on disk or in memory, use the native format since that is faster. For data that is going to be transfered to other machines (e.g., when writing data to the binary log), data should always be stored in little-endian format.

Note
The default method for packing fields just copy the raw bytes of the record into the destination, but never more than max_length characters.
Parameters
toPointer to memory area where representation of field should be put.
fromPointer to memory area where record representation of field is stored.
max_lengthMaximum length of the field, as given in the column definition. For example, for CHAR(1000), the max_length is 1000. This information is sometimes needed to decide how to pack the data.
low_byte_firsttrue if integers should be stored little-endian, false if native format should be used. Note that for little-endian machines, the value of this flag is a moot point since the native format is little-endian.

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

◆ pack_diff()

virtual bool Field::pack_diff ( uchar **  to,

Write the field for the binary log in diff format.

This should only write the field if the diff format is smaller than the full format. Otherwise it should leave the buffer untouched.

Parameters
[in,out]toPointer to buffer where the field will be written. This will be changed to point to the next byte after the last byte that was written.
value_optionsbitmap that indicates if full or partial JSON format is to be used.
Return values
trueThe field was not written, either because the data type does not support it, or because it was disabled according to value_options, or because there was no diff information available from the optimizer, or because the the diff format was bigger than the full format. The 'to' parameter is unchanged in this case.
falseThe field was written.

◆ store_time() [1/2]

type_conversion_status Field::store_time ( MYSQL_TIME ltime,

virtual

Store MYSQL_TIME value with the given amount of decimal digits into a field.

This is called when storing a date in a string.

Note, the "dec" parameter represents number of digits of the Item that previously created the MYSQL_TIME value. It's needed when we store the value into a CHAR/VARCHAR/TEXT field to display the proper amount of fractional digits. For other field types the "dec" value does not matter and is ignored.

Parameters
ltimeTime, date or datetime value.
dec_argNumber of decimals in ltime.
Return values
falseon success
trueon error
Note
Needs to be changed if/when we want to support different time formats.

◆ store_time() [2/2]

ltimeTime, date or datetime value.
Return values
falseon success
trueon error

◆ store_timestamp()

virtual void Field::store_timestamp ( const timeval *  )
inlinevirtual


Stores a timestamp value in timeval format in a field.

Note
  • store_timestamp(), get_timestamp() and store_time() do not depend on timezone and always work "in UTC".
  • The default implementation of this interface expects that storing the value will not fail. For most Field descendent classes, this is not the case. However, this interface is only used when the function CURRENT_TIMESTAMP is used as a column default expression, and currently we only allow TIMESTAMP and DATETIME columns to be declared with this as the column default. Hence it is enough that the classes implementing columns with these types either override this interface, or that store_time(MYSQL_TIME*, uint8) does not fail.
  • The column types above interpret decimals() to mean the scale of the fractional seconds.
  • We also have the limitation that the scale of a column must be the same as the scale of the CURRENT_TIMESTAMP. I.e. we only allow
[ TIMESTAMP | DATETIME ] (n) [ DEFAULT | ON UPDATE ] CURRENT_TIMESTAMP (n)

Since this interface relies on the caller to truncate the value according to this Field's scale, it will work with all constructs that we currently allow.

bool Field::type_can_have_key_part ( enum_field_types  type)
static

Check whether a field type can be partially indexed by a key.

Parameters
typefield type
Return values

falseType can not have a prefixed key

◆ unpack() [1/2]

Field::unpack ( uchar to,
const uchar from,
uint  param_data,
bool  low_byte_first 
)
virtual

Unpack a field from row data.

This method is used to unpack a field from a master whose size of the field is less than that of the slave.

The param_data parameter is a two-byte integer (stored in the least significant 16 bits of the unsigned integer) usually consisting of two parts: the real type in the most significant byte and a original pack length in the least significant byte.

The exact layout of the param_data field is given by the Table_map_log_event::save_field_metadata().

This is the default method for unpacking a field. It just copies the memory block in byte order (of original pack length bytes or length of field, whichever is smaller).

Parameters
toDestination of the data
fromSource of the data
param_dataReal type and original pack length of the field data
low_byte_firstIf this flag is true, all composite entities (e.g., lengths) should be unpacked in little-endian format; otherwise, the entities are unpacked in native order.
Returns
New pointer into memory based on from + length of the data

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

◆ val_date_temporal()

virtual longlong Field::val_date_temporal ( )

Returns DATE/DATETIME value in packed longlong format.

This method should not be called for non-temporal types. Temporal field types override the default method.

Returns "native" packed longlong representation of a TIME or DATE/DATETIME field depending on field type.

Returns TIME value in packed longlong format.

This method should not be called for non-temporal types. Temporal field types override the default method.

Reimplemented in Field_timef, Field_time, Field_newdate, and Field_temporal_with_date.

◆ is_created_from_null_item

bool Field::is_created_from_null_item

If true, this field was created in create_tmp_field_from_item from a NULL value.

This means that the type of the field is just a guess, and the type may be freely coerced to another type.

bool Field::m_indexed

True if this field belongs to some index (unlike part_of_key, the index might have only a prefix).

◆ m_is_tmp_null

bool Field::m_is_tmp_null
private

This is a flag with the following semantics:

  • it can be changed only when m_is_tmp_nullable is true;
  • it specifies if this field in the first current record (TABLE::record[0]) was set to NULL (temporary NULL).

This flag is used for trigger handling.

◆ m_is_tmp_nullable

bool Field::m_is_tmp_nullable
private

Flag: if the NOT-NULL field can be temporary NULL.

◆ m_null_ptr
