Here, here! As a user/developer, I have to say that life is MUCH
simpler when one doesn't have to pore through both a FAQ and a manual,
hoping that one doesn't miss something. I think it's MUCH more efficient
to have one repository for all relevant technical information.
Rather than a FAQ, as a supplement, a book of real-life coding
examples, apps and tips and tricks would be very useful. Something
like the Perl Cookbook, or the Perl 5 How-To. Such a book could also
include database design tips from the MySQL perspective. I think I
heard that a book came out about MiniSQL and MySQL, (which I haven't
seen) but I was under the impression that it was more of an introductory
book. Something like the Perl cookbook would be great. Lot's of rock
solid nuggets for one's workbench.
