It would take less time to write your own with perl than it has taken to amuse everyone here by asking the question. The vast majority of us, knowing Oracle, consider the ANSI joins a waste of perfectly good keystrokes.
WHERE t1.col1 = t2.col2;
Replace the comma with ' INNER JOIN ' (add ten keystrokes) Replace WHERE with ON (subtract three keystrokes) and it looks like this:
FROM t1 INNER JOIN t2
ON t1.col1 = t2.col2;
And that is worth your time and your employer's money?
And one is clearer than the other?
I'd love to hear the explanation.
