Index number mapping
Posted by: Jonathan Ellithorpe

Reading the documentation here:

I see that the 'records_in_range' method (and others) take an uint to refer to the index to use for the method, but I don't understand when/where this mapping from integers to indices is defined.

For instance, when a table is created with a primary key and an index on the primary key, what is the resulting number of that index?

I also don't see anywhere in the documentation about how indices actually get created. Perhaps this is where the storage engine allocates ids for the created indices?

Could someone please point me in the right direction here?
