I am hoping someone can elaborate on this wiki post:


Q: How to extract from two layers and to make a selection at the same time? 

A: You have to create a third map layer (or add the spread attributes
to one layer) and upload the attributes from layer 1 and 2 to layer 3
(v.to.db option=query qcol=), then use v.extract on layer 3

A short example would be helpful. 

Also, from the help file for v.to.db what are layers and qlayers?
