MySql varchar is unnecessarily limited to 255 characters
|Assignee:||Miroslav Fidler||% Done:|
The function MySqlTextType() returns varchar only for lengths <256, but since MySql 5.0.3 (that came out in 2005) it is allowed to store up to 65535 characters.
I believe that most businesses should be using at least 5.1 since 5.0 is not even developed anymore, so it should be safe to update the limit. What do you think?
