Let's keep this going!!! Here are the instructions...
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"If there were no problems, such as finding zero rows that met the criteria, then the SQL engine makes a copy of each marked row in working storage." Joe Celko's "SQL For Smarties: Advanced SQL Programming."

Hell, it could have been worse. The next closest book was C. J. Dates book on relational database theory.

Hence, the transition table rho for P contains the transition rules ([1,0,0], epsilon, [2,0,0], epsilon) and ([1,0,0], epsilon, [2,1,0], epsilon). "An Introduction to the Theory of Computation" by Eitan Gurari.

Mind you, I deliberately picked that book off the shelf and left it on my desk for the next time this item came around...
