not sure what you mean.

for the function get_slice, there is an argument offset. what does that do? whatever value i pass to it, the cassandra server receives it as the argument limit?
this is the python code:
>>> client.get_slice(tablename='Table1', key='1', columnParent='Standard1', start='', finish='', isAscending=True, offset=-1, count=1000)

this is the debug log from cassandra.
DEBUG - weakreadlocal reading SliceFromReadCommand(table='Table1', key='1', columnFamily='Standard1', isAscending='true', limit='-1', count='1000')

you can see that i passed the value -1 to offset and in the cassandra server log, it is received as the argument limit.
offset and limit mean different things right? is this a problem in python client? or am i missing something here?
