<sigh> .. way back in the late 70's or maybe early 80's when I was actually doing some work on compilers, we had a saying: "produce correct code even if it's not optimal or exit and tell the user why". Producing non-working code for no apparent reason and without warning is counter-productive. It wastes everyone's time :-( imb _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
