Right. But on the other hand, that's not surprising - when did you last see even a course, never mind a program, in academia that was _supposed_ to teach programming (as opposed to computer science or software engineering or any of the various other things usually taught instead of it)? I have a fuzzy memory that says that such courses exist now. But only a few of them and only very recently. /~\ The ASCII der Mouse \ / Ribbon Campaign X Against HTML [EMAIL PROTECTED] / \ Email! 7D C8 61 52 5D E7 2D 39 4E F1 31 3E E8 B3 27 4B
