Thanks for that. I was sitting in a waiting room this morning considering
the reduced state of 01APR on the InterNet, then read your post in the
clean old style.
I had one great 01APR exchange. Someone posted an alleged note from Bjarne
Stroustrup (on comp.lang.ada, IIRC), and Stroustrop replied,"This is what
_I_ think is funny," and provided a link to his _Generalizing Overloading
for C++2000_. I have put a copy at:
[http://speakeasy.net/~johnmills/johnmills/CxxWhitespace98.pdf]. (It sits
next to a copy of my resume, in case anyone is looking to hire ... &8-)
I sent a 'thank you' to Stroustrop and got a gracious reply - nice fellow,
