Subject: Re: macros vs HOFs (was: O'Caml) From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 12 Sep 2002 18:39:23 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Greg Menke | Try to do some accounting software in C. * Bruce Hoult | IEEE double precision floating point is perfectly fine for that purpose Wrong answer. I cannot /believe/ that people still think floating point is usable for accounting purposes. Nothing really beats binary coded decimal for this kind of tasks. Realizing that should be part of your education as a programmer. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
