Subject Re: Example curl command for multi part index required
Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 22:16:43 GMT
You can't even wild card the last element.

in the usual trick of startkey=["foo"]&endkey=["foo",{}], {} is not a
wildcard, it's an empty object. The trick works because an object, any
object, sorts higher than any number or string.

To call that a wildcard is wildly misleading. badoom tssh.
