But I'm not, I'm trying to | glue something together out of READ and bits of string. But this must necessarily fail. You cannot possibly make this work. | I realise that this is not the right way to do what I'm trying to do, but I | wanted to see if I could do it without either implementing a token reader | from the spec, or finding the system's one. I really thought this was obvious from the outset: It cannot be done. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
