Yes, the samples used in the user guide are only code fragments. There 
are no complete example programs in the official distribution.

Maybe the unit tests can be of interest for you? Some of them work on 
data similar to the examples of the user guide (e.g. the database table 
definition example). You can find the unit tests if you download the 
source distribution. They are under src/test. The example configuration 
files processed by the tests are below the conf directory.
