    does "&" and "and" mean thesame thing in MySql?

    I am asking this because my code is supposed to query mysql database and return rows with the word "and" and not "&" but it does return rows that has either of them present. So, I am wondering if mysql do interchange the word "and" for "&".

    and and && means same thing. & is bitwise operator not a logical and.

    also note that && is not standard sql and not portable as a result. Stick to using AND.
