Improved detection and handling of NULL values on the RHS of a IN operator. check-in: 468e7300 user: drh tags: trunk
18:00
Remove an unnecessary OP_Null in the IN-operator logic. Attempt to clarify comments explaining the IN-operator code, though it is not clear that the comments are correct even yet - more work to be done. check-in: c11e55fa user: drh tags: trunk
