Hi,

I have a table containing only a bool filed.  I would like to know how many
records there is an on many ar true.

Is there something I could do to get both answer in only one query...   like
:

select count(*), sum(bool_col) from tablename

but there is no sum(bool) function that would add 1 if it's true and 0 if
it's false... ;(

Any idea?
