EXAMPLES

TEXT

Example of TEXT:

CREATE TABLE text_example (
  description VARCHAR(20),
  example TEXT CHARACTER SET latin1
) DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1; -- One byte per char makes the examples clearer
INSERT INTO text_example VALUES
  ('Normal foo', 'foo'),
  ('Trailing spaces foo', 'foo      '),
  ('NULLed', NULL),
  ('Empty', ''),
  ('Maximum', RPAD('', 65535, 'x'));
SELECT description, LENGTH(example) AS length
  FROM text_example;
+---------------------+--------+
| description         | length |
+---------------------+--------+
| Normal foo          |      3 |
| Trailing spaces foo |      9 |
| NULLed              |   NULL |
| Empty               |      0 |
| Maximum             |  65535 |
+---------------------+--------+

Data too long

When a value exceeds the size of one of the TEXT data type, the value is silently truncated.

Example of data too long behavior for TEXT:

TRUNCATE text_example;

INSERT INTO text_example VALUES
  ('Overflow', RPAD('', 65536, 'x'));
SELECT description, LENGTH(example) AS length
  FROM text_example;
+-------------+--------+
| description | length |
+-------------+--------+
| Overflow    |  65535 |
+-------------+--------+
