Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3072) User documentation for Table Functions
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 21:46:13 GMT

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-3072:

    Attachment: derby-3072-01-basic-ab.diff

Thanks for the extensive review, Kim. I have attached a new rev addressing the issues you
raised: derby-3072-01-basic-ab.diff and the corresponding tarball of output files, derby-3072-01-basic-ab.tar.

On the whole, I made most of the changes you suggested, with the following exceptions:

- Usage of "which" vs. "that". Thank you for opening my eyes to the controversy which is swirling
around this issue. See for instance, http://www.worldwidewords.org/articles/which.htm This
reminds me of the controversy which erupted over the use of "like" as a conjunction a couple
decades ago. It was a perfectly acceptable usage in Middle English, then it fell out of favor
a couple hundred years ago, then it crept back into vogue in the last century, and now we
all have to agree to disagree. I'm afraid that I am going to persist in my cussed, hillbilly

- I have kept the topic nesting as is in the Reference Guide. We can move the TABLE constructor
topic around when we introduce new usages for it.

Your advice has made this material much easier to read. Thanks!
