I suspect that functions are evaluated also for record discarded due to
joins. Is that the case?


SELECT * FROM ta JOIN tb USING (id) where = 4;

If ta is a view with some calculated fields are the function on ta
evaluated only for record matching the filters or in some case (
like a full scan on ta ) also for the records discarded due to the join?
