I'd prefer for the Pocket Reference to have an index. Typically I
don't know which Table of Contents entry a topic is under. Also, tiny
examples would be nice to have. For example, given the syntax:
chdir(path), a beginner typing in chdir('c:\myprojects') would get an
error. I know what I want to say, and I go to Pocket to find out how
to say it. (I know this is encroaching on David Beazely's book.)
