Hello,

I found an incorrect example in the user documentation about the SELECT
statement.
In the part:
Compatibility 
Extensions 

The example:
SELECT distributors.* WHERE name = 'Westwood';
 did | name
-----+----------
 108 | Westward

So if I SELECT 'Westwood' I get 'Westward' ??
I guess it should be:
SELECT distributors.* WHERE name = 'Westward';

And if you search on the web, you find this problem more times:
