AFAIK there is not a definitive source, but...
Take a look at the API documentation for version 0.7
The cli will be making a call to get_indexed_slices()
Cassandra.yaml provides some help about how to define the index using yaml.
The cli also has online help, see
pycasse has some help about it
There have been a number of discussions on the mail group....

I'm playing since a couple of days with the cassandra-cli supplied with the Cassandra 0.7 RC.
It seems that new request are possible : I'm very interested in the get <cf> where <column> = <value>.
Does it mean that request with condition on column other than keys is now possible?
Is it possible to have more information on that feature?
Thank you very much!
