Re: Creating the database

Actually, I still prefer what I suggested -- that the code example of Graph of the Gods be used to illustrate the complete example beginning to end.
I already reviewed the page you referred to and find it confusing. The problem is that nowhere is the syntax for anything discussed. There are just a bunch of examples. I then see a _ somewhere, or a .it or a .source or a loop, or both or addE or addEdge, or .... They just appear without any explanation. In SQL I am used to a Reference Manual that shows you the syntax for everything the language supports. It explains every option. Then is shows how to use that syntax with examples. On the top of that you have a User's Guide. I have not been able to find any manual on Gremlin that covers the syntax, options, and then examples in that way. I find it completely mind-boggling. Maybe I am just old fashioned and people learn very differently.
Also, it is ass backwards from my perspective. It starts talking about the query language before even talking about how the data got there in the first place. How were the vertices and edges created.
Anyway, I am getting the hang of it now - enough to get dangerous, or be able to use enough to illustrate to the real coders how to go implement what my intended end result is.
Thanks for all your help!
