The act of collating or comparing; a comparison of one copy er thing (as of a book, or manuscript) with another of a like kind; comparison, in general.
The act of comparing the copy of any paper with its original to ascertain its conformity.
The logical ordering of character or wide-character strings according to defined precedence rules. These rules identify a collation sequence between the collating elements, and such additional rules that can be used to order strings consisting of multiple collating elements. X/Open.
A process, now often done with computer programs, to compare two versions of the same written text and find all the differences, or variants, between them.
that's related to the operations on a given character set. A collation is in plain words, a comparison. The collation defines how a SORT instruction orders the results, how the UPPER function works and how fields are compared in the WHERE and HAVING clauses of a SELECT statement.
careful examination and comparison to note points of disagreement
a defined way of sorting strings, and it is often language-dependent
a function determining the rules for sorting lines
a method of ordering sequences of characters in a culturally acceptable fashion
a set of rules for comparing characters in a character set
a set of rules for comparing character-string (CHAR/VARCHAR/CL
a set of rules that determines how data is sorted and compared
a set of rules that determine whether two strings are equal, and if not, which of them is to be sorted before the other
The process of sorting and comparing text strings.
Text comparison using language-sensitive rules as opposed to bitwise comparison of numeric character codes.
Comparison of the text of one copy of printed book with that of another copy, to discover and record differences between them.
Ordering of character strings according to rules about sorting characters that are associated with a language in a specific locale. Also called linguistic sort. See also linguistic sort, monolingual linguistic sort, multilingual linguistic sort, accent-insensitive linguistic sort, case-insensitive linguistic sort.
A combination of a character set and a sort order that defines the properties of text in the database. For Adaptive Server Anywhere databases, the default collation is determined by the operating system and language on which the server is running; for example, the default collation on English Windows systems is 1252LATIN1. A collation, also called a collating sequence, is used for comparing and sorting strings.
Ordering of all character strings from an alphabet into a linear sequence. Collation may be used on a linguistic sort order or a binary sort order.
From XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language ( 2007-01-23) A collation is a specification of the manner in which strings and URIs are compared and, by extension, ordered. For a more complete definition of collation, see .
