| ya, I hadn't clued in until fighting with it some more that if the fieldis

I didn't even know what the args to extract were, which is how I ended
up in gram.y...
note: extract() is correctly not listed as a function, but it doesn't
have any '\h' help available. Is this a TODO kind-of-thing? If
it is I can try to add it sometime later today. There is not
note2: This documentation is incorrect as of last night's cvs.
an example given in the docs is.
SELECT EXTRACT(CENTURY FROM TIMESTAMP '2001-02-16 20:38:40');
I can go ahead and update func.sgml if noone else is already

Not that I see. archives. points at www2.us.
I ftp'd around every postgresql.org (and hub.org) anonftp server
I could find, and sent an 'index' command to majordomo, and it has
/some/ files listed, but I could not ever retreive those files...
I'm really looking forward to having locally (mutt!!) searchable
Did you ever get the documentation issue worked out? Is there anything
I can do to help with that? I did get man.tar and postgres.tar built
from cvs on my debian box.
