Subject Re: "range query" vs "slice range query"

I cannot Display the Book page you are referring to, but your General understanding is correct.
A Range Refers to several rows, a slice Refers to several columns. A RangeSlice is a combination
of Both. From all rows in a Range get a specific slice of columns.

hi guys,

i'm reading up on the book "Cassandra - Definitive guide"
and i don't seem to understand what it says about "ranges and slices"

my understanding is
a range as in "a mathematical range to define a subset from an ordered set of elements",
in cassandra typically means a range of rows whereas
a slice means a range of columns.

a range query refers to a query to retrieve a range of rows whereas
a slice range queyr refers to a query to retrieve range of columns within a row.

i may be talking about total nonsense but i really am more confused after reading this portion
of the book

many thanx in advance
