rel_exp - Ternary Relational Operator BETWEEN

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


... operand [NOT] BETWEEN operand1 AND operand2 ...


A comparison expression with the relational operator BETWEEN checks the content of an interval. The relational expression checks whether the content of an operand operand is within a closed interval delimited by the operands operand1 and operand2. The ternary comparison expression is equivalent to the following join between two binary comparison expressions:

... [NOT] ( operand >= operand1 AND operand <= operand2 ) ...

All operands are general expression positions and the usual comparison rules apply.
