* Walks down a FromClause AST node, thereby generating the appropriate SQL.
* @param $fromClause
* @return string The SQL.
public function walkFromClause($fromClause)
$sql = parent::walkFromClause($fromClause);
$index = $this->getQuery()->getHint("useIndexWalker.index");
return preg_replace('/( INNER JOIN| LEFT JOIN|$)/', sprintf(' USE INDEX(%s)\1', $index), $sql, 1);
