Aha, you've left yourself open to pedants here: ...
Is that 2nd edition as in with updates? Or as in "Reprinted with
corrections May, 1989"?
If the first, what's the difference? Is it worth getting it if you've
already got 1.ed?
Also, are you going to get them "More Programming Pearls, Confessions of
a Coder" as well?
