Yes. Standards are prescriptive. You understand them, you adhere to them, /then/ have your own opinions. | What is the current status of Common-Lisp standardization? Published. | The most recent references to X3J13 date back to 1996, and most are | ten years old... Is it not wonderful? Nobody has randomly messed with the language to fit some misunderstandings or added cruft to fit some marketing scheme. Imagine a programming language that is /not/ a weapon in someone else's marketing war, but is stable and has proven useful to actual /programmers/ over a whole decade! Is it not amazing? -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
