Got rbar blues? You’re not the only one.


He could’ve just said, “Go read Itzik Ben-Gan’s books.” and been done with it… but then he wouldn’t’ve been able to write this neat article. Heh. Good article, Remi.

RBAR: ‘Row By Agonizing Row’ (Simple-Talk)

Out of morbid curiosity, please answer the following survey question. How do most of the developers (and/or dbas) that you know pronounce RBAR?

  1. ree-bahr
  2. ar-bahr
  3. stoo-pïd dee-vəl-ah-purr trixx
  4. Huh? Whutchu talkin’ ’bout, Willis? (Meaning they have no clue.)

Think in sets, people. Please. Or don’t write code and leave it to the professionals!
