This is a continuous process, and one of which we're definitely aware. For now, you can get more information and examples from the user notes at the bottom of each page, but we are working on official examples as well. For some things, however, full examples will not be provided, as it would be out of the scope of the individual function's manual entry. In such events, the official documentation is a good reference, but not a substitute for learning on your own and from others. That said, we are *always* looking for people who would be serious about providing long-term assistance to the PHP Project, including the official documentation. If you're interested in learning how to do so, get in touch with me off-list at danbr...@php.net and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction. -- </Daniel P.
