Yes, one can do that with a trigger, but it is a real pain. MySQL now allows
	(new.a,new.b,new.c,new.d) <> (old.a,old.b,old.c,old.d)
but one needs to beware of NULL. Maybe it is better to split off the timestampy part to another table, and join them when needed.

I understand how a timestamp column automatically changes when there is a
change in a data row. Is it possible to limit the update to changes in
particular columns? I have a table where I care about changes in any of
four different columns, but I don¹t care about changes in other
columns or
added columns.

Is there a command that says ³update the time stamp if and only if there
is a change in columns a, b,c, or d"
