| (ii) Are you sure you want to call WRITE and not PRINC?

  I always use `write´ these days, instead of the `print´ family.  It makes
  it easier to remember exactly which printer variables are used and
  affected.  More often than not, being unaware of printer variables causes
  bugs that are extremely hard to find, and those who blithely assume that
  they have "reasonable" values have no room for reasonable disagreement
  over what is reasonable.  (Or I use `format´.)

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
