Add the <fancy_format> markup which works like <table_of_contents> but omits the actual table of contents. Begin writing documentation for the carray() function. Fix typos and adjust wording in the CLI document. check-in: e89a552dc3 user: drh tags: trunk

    only the inner-most loop naturally generates rows in the correct order.
<li>Enhancements to Lemon parser generator, so that it generates a
    faster parser.
<li>The [PRAGMA compile_options] command now attempts to show the version number
    of the compiler that generated the library.


<li>Added the "win32-none" VFS, analogous to the "unix-none" VFS, that works like
    the default "win32" VFS except that it ignores all file locks.

<li>The query planner uses a full scan of a [partial index] instead of a 
    full scan of the main table, in cases where that makes sense.
<li>Allow [table-valued functions] to appear on the right-hand side of an [IN operator].

<h3>The IN and NOT IN operators</h3>
<p>^The IN and NOT IN operators take a single scalar operand on the
left and a vector operand on the right
formed by an explicit list of zero or more scalars or by a 
single subquery.
^When the right operand of an IN or NOT IN operator is a subquery, the
subquery must have a single result column.



^When the right operand is an empty set, the result of IN is false and the
result of NOT IN is true, regardless of the left operand and even if the
left operand is NULL.
^(The result of an IN or NOT IN operator is determined by the following
matrix:

<center>
<table border=1>
<tr>
<th>Left operand <br>is NULL
<th>Right operand <br>contains NULL

^When the right operand of an IN or NOT IN operator is a subquery, the
subquery must have a single result column.
^The "subquery" on the right-hand side of an IN operator can be a
table name or [table-valued function] name in which case the
subquery is understood to be "(SELECT * FROM <i>name</i>)".
^When the right operand is an empty set, the result of IN is false and the
result of NOT IN is true, regardless of the left operand and even if the
left operand is NULL.
