Syntax

UNCOMPRESSED_LENGTH(compressed_string)

Description

Returns the length that the compressed string had before being compressed with COMPRESS().

UNCOMPRESSED_LENGTH() returns NULL or an incorrect result if the string is not compressed.

Until MariaDB 10.3.1, returns MYSQL_TYPE_LONGLONG, or bigint(10), in all cases. From MariaDB 10.3.1, returns MYSQL_TYPE_LONG, or int(10), when the result would fit within 32-bits.

Examples

SELECT UNCOMPRESSED_LENGTH(COMPRESS(REPEAT('a',30)));
+-----------------------------------------------+
| UNCOMPRESSED_LENGTH(COMPRESS(REPEAT('a',30))) |
+-----------------------------------------------+
|                                            30 |
