testing a program I ran into a glitch working with the ~* statement.
The problem is, that whenever I want to query something from the
database with ~* containing brackets () or a question mark psql throws
So far I have tried to escape the sequence but then I ran into another
problem. Psql didn't fetch the result I wanted it to fetch (the one with
the brackets or question mark),
but one that was similiar to the one I wanted it to fetch.
Here's an example:
I want to fetch 'my (search) string' from the table
select bar from table where bar ~*' my (search) string';
This didn't work out so I tried:
select bar from table where bar~*'my \(search\) string';
But this only returned:
'my search string'
and not the wanted result 'my (search) string'.
The problem is, that I have to escape ... the string otherwise my
program throws an exception.
The language is python.
Thanx in advance
