Syntax

UNCOMPRESS(string_to_uncompress)

Description

Uncompresses a string compressed by the COMPRESS() function. If the argument is not a compressed value, the result is NULL. This function requires MariaDB to have been compiled with a compression library such as zlib. Otherwise, the return value is always NULL. The have_compress server system variable indicates whether a compression library is present.
