Subject: Re: C++ briar patch (Was: Object IDs are bad) From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/05/29 Newsgroups: comp.lang.scheme,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.misc,comp.lang.functional,comp.lang.c++ Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Peter da Silva | You're getting into the implementation level again.
