Yes that i know, expanding '*' is done in analyzer part. I am try to do
is, move the expanding process to "before" raw_parser that produce by
gram.y is processed by analyzer. Like this :
sql query -> gram.y -> raw_parse_tree -> (expand the '*') -> analyze
In this way analyzer part only receiving the expanded '*' parse tree
they wont expand the '*' again. I am aksing this because i didnt know
how to (analyzer) scan database so it can return list of attribut from
table. I have read the source code, and try manualy to replicate the
process (from what i got is the RTE function) with no result.
