Re: is HASH index being ignored

Hi Felix,

So it appears. After further reading (including and thinking about what a hash is doing, it seems a hash index is just not suitable to the BETWEEN style of query. It can find a direct hit, but it's not good for finding "the next one greater than." Can anyone confirm?

I've also realized that I didn't try a hash index on a MyISAM table to see if it is ignored. At the moment, I expect it would be.
