Thanks, that's what I wanted to know.

And the Samba Compendium seem to be exactly what I need.

> I would prefer if you would purchase the books that you consider of value,
I would prefer that too, if only they were translated to my national
language (Polish) and available in my country. Purchasing them now in
the other country is useless for me today, as I have to finish my work
before I can get it that way. Also, it is 2 to 3 times more expensive,
and I'm only a poor student (working hard to be a rich student ;>).
If my university will pay me for the job I'm doing (in Poland it is
problematic matter), I'll purchase Samba Compendium on paper... If
not... Sorry.

Advocatus Diaboli - someone should do this job.
