Re: SQL_MODE=ORACLE documentation


Hello Federico,

With SQL_MODE='ORACLE' a completely new syntax has been introduced. Basic syntax constructs of MariaDB become unavailable, but not all Oracle syntax seems to be supported. Is there any plan to document the supported syntax? Current documentation looks like an unfinished draft and doesn't save much time for the poor user.

The difference between the native MariaDB (SQL/PSM based) syntax
and the Oracle PL/SQL syntax is described as a summary here:


Yes, the documentation will be improving.

We need to decide if we want two separate SQL/PSM and PL/SQL pages
on every topic.

For example, for the WHILE loop syntax,
do we need an new PL/SQL article similar to
https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/while/ ,
or should we put the PL/SQL WHILE syntax directly
on this page.

What do you think would be more readable?

I'm slightly inclined towards having separate pages
for SQL/PSM and PL/SQL, with links to each other
in the "See Also" section.
