Next time you are in San Jose for dinner ....

I hopefully won't write anything that will invite you to post what you were considering ... but personally I am a bit tired of the ANSI standard nonsense as an argument about just about anything.

If every product had the same syntax and the same behavior the only criterion for choosing product A over product B would be price. And that is not what our industry needs ... we need substantive choices.

The behavior is documented and those who are professionals read the docs. Those that don't use products sold by a third vendor. <g>
