Peter,

I don't think I phrased my question very well. Also, I am coming from a Java
background, so I am thinking about result sets, which may not be applicable
to Python.

If I have a Z SQL Method query that returns multiple rows to a brains class,
how do I

(1) reference the returned object that has all the rows
(2) reference a particular row in the returned object
(3) reference a particular piece of data in the returned object.

What is the returned object - list, dictionary, some special object with
associated APIs?

Where is this documented? I can't seem to find it in the Zope 2 book.

Thanks!

Mark
