Fix documentation output for specially constructed join statistics strings

    • Type: Icon: Bug Bug
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Priority: Icon: Minor - P4 Minor - P4
    • 6.1.0-rc0, WT11.1.0
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Component/s: None
    • None

      Currently in the docs under "Statistics for join cursors" we get:

        : accesses to the main table

      which in addition to being missing "join" before the colon, doesn't document that what actually comes through is "join: table:mytable: accesses to the main table".

      This is because the magic that sets up the substitution of the table/index name into the stat name is a little bit too much magic and the code that generates the descriptions into wiredtiger.in can't cope with it.

      I tried to fix this naively as part of WT-9492, but that didn't work (did not understand everything that was going on at the time) and had to revert the change there.

      I have a new change that rearranges it all slightly so that the docs come out better.
