That kind of question will generally not be postgres specific (unless
you are asking about syntax which is compactly described for each
SQL command). It might be better to provide references to web sites
that provide general information about SQL (if there are any good ones),
rather than to spend a lot of resources trying to teach people generic
stuff about SQL and RDBMS.
