Facebook FQL LIKE operator

Possible Duplicates: Does facebook fql contain the sql like operator? FaceBook query using FQL

Is it possible to use the familiar SQL LIKE operator within Facebook's query language?

I have tried running the query in the FQL test console, but it doesn't work. I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if it is simply not possible?

SELECT link_id from link WHERE url LIKE '%FRLJTjNC8So%' AND owner = '421235'

Go here to test: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/rest/fql.query/


SELECT link_id from link WHERE strpos(url,'FRLJTjNC8So') >=0 AND owner = '421235'

There is no SQL LIKE in FQL. My solution uses FQL STRPOS instead. This works because it searches for the substring FRLJTjNC8So within the URL field.
