I've told you what I meant.  No one else can know that better than I

I didn't say you shouldn't ask.  I answered your questions.

What I'm saying is that there's a limit to what can be explained in a
message posted to a forum.  The manual has much more.  You'd rob
yourself if you limit your learning to what people say here, even if
we assume, wrongly, that no one of them is ever mistaken.  Not only
will you learn more from the documentation, your questions will become
deeper, more sophisticated, and more interesting to answer.

It's your call.
