Built-in functions

A built-in function is an expression in which an SQL keyword or special operator executes some operation.

Built-in functions use keywords or special built-in operators. Built-ins are SQLIdentifiers and are case-insensitive. Note that escaped functions like TIMESTAMPADD and TIMESTAMPDIFF are only accessible using the JDBC escape function syntax, and can be found in JDBC escape syntax.
