Description:
Can't find the st_distance description anywhere here: 
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/functions-for-testing-spatial-relations-between-geo...

How to repeat:
mysql> select st_distance(point(1,1), point(1,1));
+-------------------------------------+
| st_distance(point(1,1), point(1,1)) |
+-------------------------------------+
|                                   0 |
+-------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

(function exists).

However can't find documentation for this function.

Suggested fix:
Write documentation for st_distance function.
