Example #1 PDO::sqliteCreateCollation() example

<?php
$db 
= new PDO('sqlite::memory:');
$db->exec("CREATE TABLE test (col1 string)");
$db->exec("INSERT INTO test VALUES ('a1')");
$db->exec("INSERT INTO test VALUES ('a10')");
$db->exec("INSERT INTO test VALUES ('a2')");

$db->sqliteCreateCollation('NATURAL_CMP''strnatcmp');
foreach (
$db->query("SELECT col1 FROM test ORDER BY col1") as $row) {
  echo 
$row['col1'] . "\n";
}
echo 
"\n";
foreach (
$db->query("SELECT col1 FROM test ORDER BY col1 COLLATE NATURAL_CMP") as $row) {
  echo 
$row['col1'] . "\n";
}
?>

The above example will output:

a1
a10
a2

a1
a2
a10

Note:

This method is not available with the SQLite2 driver. Use the old style sqlite API for that instead.
