You may notice that some examples end in $$ rather than ;: this is because most stored program code is shown as it would appear in the MySQL Query Browser. When you create a stored procedure in most environments (including the MySQL query browser ) you need to change the DELIMITER setting to avoid errors when MySQL sees a ; in the stored procedure and interprets that as the end of the CREATE PROCEDURE statement. By default the MySQL Query Browser uses $$ as that delimiter, which is why some examples end in $$ - because they were created in the query browser.
