One level recursive search

One level recursive search

(OP)
I need to look up the name of the parent node and print the child node's name along with the parent node's name. I'm doing this in SQLite which means I have to work with a very restricted subset. So that I don't breach the NDA that I've signed, I've made up data similar to what I would use.

CODE --> data

id,name,parent,
8,Zadok,7,
7,Aaron,4,
6,Moses,4,
5,Judah,1,
4,Levi,1,
3,Simon,1,
2,Reuben,1,
1,Jacob,0, 
The query is

CODE --> query

select L1.name, L2.name as parent
from lut L1, lut L2
where L1.parent=L2.id 
It is fast for 10 items but I'll be dealing with 100s. I'm just wondering whether there is a neater way or even more efficient way of doing this or is this as good as it gets.

Brilliant. Thanks
