From BUG#23072: [7 Oct 2006 14:39] Mark Johnson Description: This is a problem with the MySql manual. Sections 13.2.1 and 13.2.10 both refer to section 13.2.7 as specifying the "where_condition". However, section 13.2.7 contains only the following reference to "where_condition": "where_condition is an expression that evaluates to true for each row to be selected." This does not specify the syntax of where_condition. In effect, it is assumed that the user already knows the syntax of where_condition. How to repeat: Check above manual sections. Suggested fix: Please add some BNF to specify the where_condition.
