#10864 closed defect (fixed)

Syntax error, or simply wrong version?

Reported by: hopfrog@… Owned by: miezuit
Priority: normal Component: WikiReplacePlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: glob 0.12.3 syntax
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12

Description (last modified by rjollos)

Hi, we installed WikiReplacePlugin 1.1.1 on our 0.12.3 TRAC system and got the following error when trying a replace from the Administration web page:

Trac detected an internal error:

ProgrammingError: syntax error at or near "glob"
LINE 1: ... w2.max_version AND = AND glob E'Wik... ^

Is there a way of getting the plugin to work with 0.12.3?

What were your find/replace/wiki pages terms?

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by hopfrog@…

Find: 'Locate'
Replace with: 'Find'
Page: 'WikiStart'

I entered these without the quotation marks, of course.

I commited a fix attempt for your problem. It might be an sql case sensitivity issue.

Please try again.

I'm not sure what to do with GLOB, or if it will even cause a problem, but t:TracDev/DatabaseApi#GuidelinesforSQLStatements described how LIKE should be handled for cross-db compatibility:

It would look something like this (or perhaps exactly like this if I haven't made a stupid error typing this out) :

sql = 'SELECT w1.version,,w1.text' + sqlbase + 'AND GLOB %%s AND w1.text %s %%s' %

GLOB operator is available only on SQLite and case-sensitive. LIKE operator on SQLite is case-insensitve.

Also, the method generates case-insensitive LIKE clause on all database backends. e.g.

Tested successfully - thank you very much!

comment:11 Changed 17 months ago by hopfrog@…

Hi, as this has now been tested successfully with TRAC 0.12.3 and PostgreSQL, wouldn't it be a good idea to tag this with a new version number...?
Thanks again for the fix!
