I have the following code that should select all strings that start with "rog" (like rogers, etc).

								first_name AS name,
								MATCH (first_name) AGAINST('rog*') 

The problme it's that  shows me zero results. In first_name column I have a lot of words with "rogers". 

first_name column have Fulltext assign. 

If I use just "...AGAINST ('rogers')" it return corect data.

It's something wrong with my sentence? 

Thank you

These are the results I get (wordlist contains 351,100 records)


$t1 = microtime(1);
$res = $db->query("SELECT word FROM wordlist WHERE MATCH (word) AGAINST ('sang*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)");
$t2 = microtime(1);
printf('Query 1 :  %0.4f seconds<br>', $t2 - $t1);  

$t1 = microtime(1);
$res = $db->query("SELECT word FROM wordlist WHERE word LIKE 'sang%'");
$t2 = microtime(1);
printf('Query 2 :  %0.4f seconds<br>', $t2 - $t1);  

results (74 words found)

Query 1 : 0.0026 seconds
Query 2 : 0.0005 seconds
