Description Roman Mostyka 2008-06-09 15:44:43 UTC
1. Connect to DB and open Query Editor.
2. Write following code:
delimiter //
create procedure test()
select * from PERSON;
delimiter ;
3. Execute statement.

Result: Following message appears in Output window:
"Error code 1064, SQL state 42000: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL
server version for the right syntax to use near '//
delimiter' at line 4
Line 2, column 1

Execution finished after 0 s, 1 error(s) occurred."

If delimiter is changed from '//' to for example '\\' everything works fine. So not all strings can be delimiter.
Why this issue is P2. Because string "delimiter //" I found in MySQL stored procedures tutorial.
Comment 1 David Vancouvering 2008-06-09 18:04:19 UTC
Sorry, the workaround is simple - don't use this delimiter, there are many other choices. I don't believe this is a P2.
Comment 2 Andrei Badea 2008-08-04 14:43:48 UTC
Not exactly trivial to fix: the code which checks for the delimiter doesn't get to process all characters. For example
'/' is processed separately, because it also has other meanings (beginning of a block comment).
