*= and =* and SQL

Google either of these and you get bugger all results, not very helpful when trying to figure out what the hell they are.

Well, I eventually found reference on msdn.microsoft.com:

*= is left outer join

=* is right outer join

It’s easier when people stick to using “LEFT OUTER JOIN” or “RIGHT OUTER JOIN” instead of *= and =*, lazy typers!
