If LOOP is hard to read, what is FORMAT? It is because loop is actually _too_ easy to read and does unexpected things for those who do not understand that it is a formal language. In contrast to this, format is pure magic and not understood by the whiners. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you.
