=== About Naf_Select ===
Naf_Select is a Query-Object implementation in Naf library. More about Naf: http://developer.berlios.de/projects/naf/

=== What Naf_Select is? ===
It is a object-oriented wrapper around a SELECT SQL query, allowing for quite comlex selects, with complex filtering capabilities (@see registerFilter() and registerFilterIf() methods), its features include the abilities to apply GROUP BY clause, HAVING clause, LIMIT/OFFSET, execute complex COUNT() queries with a help of count() method, complex SUM() queries with a help of sum() method. Exports results as a PDOStatement. Beneath Naf_Select lies Naf_Table object which helps to build SQL statements.

=== What Naf_Select is NOT? ===
First and most meaningful: Naf_Select is NOT a silver bullet, NOT a replacement for manually writing SQL queries. REMEMBER: only writing SQL by hand gives you the real power in complex cituations!
