Whatever. It's polymorphic. Hand someone a single snippet of C, say
a+b, and it is impossible for them to infer any meaning from it
without reading the rest of the program, the libraries, blah, blah,

I clearly missed something here since I fail to see what the problem
is. I'll review the thread tonight and comment more fully then.
Clearly this topic deserves mention in either the tao blog or the
wishlist blog. One confused, irritated, or otherwise out-of-tune
person deserves a mention in either as assistance to others that
follow. Of course, I don't consider true bugs as belonging in either,
but rather a topic for bugzilla.

Whoops! I meant the wishlist blog. See the posting on this point
from earlier today. The subject begins with [ANN]. I look forward to
On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
