Bigint attributes

Bigint attributes (sql_attr_bitint directive) should be: Bigint attributes (sql_attr_bigint directive)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Confirmed, there is a typo and it should read "sql_attr_bigint" instead of "sql_attr_bitint" indeed. Thank you!

2nd paragraph

Hi, it's a very small one : "It defines that a byte value of 64 (a.k.a 41 in hex, or 0x41 for brevity) its an uppercase A..." Actually it's a byte value of 65, not 64. Regards, Arnaud

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks, it should read 65 indeed.

first listing

In book: sql_query_post_index = DELETE FROM sphinxcounters \ WHERE tablename='documents_delta_tmp' sql_query_post_index = UPDATE sphinxcounters \ SET tablename='documents_delta' \ WHERE tablename='documents_delta_tmp' I think that two 'sql_query_post_index' need to be swapped or first line may be changed to.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The first sql_query_post_index = DELETE FROM ... line should indeed be changed to read: sql_query_post_index = DELETE FROM sphinxcounters \ WHERE tablename='documents_delta' Thanks for pointing this out!
