SCNR.

With kind regards - mit freundlichen Gruessen,

You flatter to deceive, my friend. You know I'm as old as the hills - well, as old as The Doors' 'Light My Fire'. No relation, BTW. We were both released 29 years ago last Christmas, in a manner of counting...

And no, I don't have a copy - of either the single or the article. Sorry. I'm sure someone around Canberra/AU1 will have one. And I just noticed your e-mail address change. If you're no longer one of Jerry's friends you know what your new middle name is now, don't you?

Wow, does this count as my 2nd too-early-for-Friday post? That's me done for the week, then.

Laters, innit?

Speaking of which ... there was a magazine article in one of the
IBM-flavoured publications very late 80's or in the 90's entitled
"Assembler guru - small "G" !" or something like that. Had me rolling
doubled up with laughter on the floor.

Has anyone seen / have a soft copy of the article. It mentions some PFY
("author") going up to a crusty MVS SysProg for documentation on an
assembler routine and being told it was "self-documenting"! Sort of thing
Raymond would keep, although I'm not 100% sure he's old enough?

Anyway Phil & Faz:

i=1 ; pt = 'brother' /* */
cs = 'speaking to the converted'
while j=j do
say cs pt
pt = '!' /* */
if i <> 1 then break ; else ; i=0
end

I know what you mean!

Regards,
