Well, actually I noticed the bit about the Wiki and that in the future, once
the Whole thing is ready, he will publish a free on-line version as well. I
did ask about the Wiki and whether it would be possible to get a plain text
version of it, as far as I can remember. I think Mark skipped that
particular bit, liekly thinking that people ought to wait for the official
launch, but instructed me in getting an accessible version as I mentioned.
On a side note, I just wread the chapter on Iterators and it is very good. I
found the passage on the different kinds of exhaustion values enlighthing,
thinking with a Java background that a separate method or returning some
kind of null value (undef, that is), if feasible, Would be the only
sensible choice. But the book lists several other tricks. The explanation of
closures is one of the best I've read so far, too.
With kind regards Veli-Pekka Til?( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )
