Subject: Re: Java/Lisp Language Evolution Correlates From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/06/20 Newsgroups: comp.lang.java.advocacy,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Yiorgos Adamopoulos | Oh but it is! As someone else posted earlier in this thread, Java | programmers are bug free. I get the impression from this comment and your last comment that you are the kind of programmer who can't write even an expression, let alone a line of code, that is bug free, and you don't want any other programmers to be able to claim that they can write hundreds, if not thousands, of expressions/lines without any bugs. The fact that humans are mortal does not mean that it's a good idea to kill people. The fact that we are mortal is in some sense what makes _life_ so much worth living. Likewise, the fact that software is so hard to write that we are bound to get some things wrong does not mean that we should create broken software from the outset or break things that people depend on, but rather find ways to cherish the ways we discover to write bug-free code. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
