Subject: Re: C++ briar patch (Was: Object IDs are bad) From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1997/05/08 Newsgroups: comp.lang.scheme,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.misc,comp.lang.functional,comp.lang.c++ Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * David Monniaux | In a nutshell: ML won't be used commercially because there's no | commercial compiler for it, and surely people won't start making a | commercial compiler for it if nobody uses it in the commercial world. | :-) * Andrew Koenig | Absolutely correct, unfortunately. The Harlequin Group made MLWorks available for beta testing last fall. the beta license expired 1997-01-01, after which I received a questionnaire and some notes on how to get the commercial product. I elected not to buy it. well over 100 people got a copy of this product (and some of the mailings, hence I know the numbers). take a look at <URL:http://www.harlequin.com/full/products/sp/mlworks.html> you can even download an evaluation version. yes, this products exists is available on a large number of platforms. I hope you're better informed in other cases where you use "absolutely correct" about something, Andrew. #\Erik -- if we work harder, will obsolescence be farther ahead or closer?
