# What Michel implied (i suppose) to tell

  1. it is bad to rely on implicit conversion, if you can avoid it
  2. it is worse, if such conversions are nls dependent, as it may introduce problems which are hard to identify
  3. it is worse to promote such bad practice, as somebody, not aware of it, may take it for good practice.

Now that makes sense. I did not look long at all at the referenced blog that had the material. I assumed ( apparently incorrectly ) that the writer would have at least given some background about what their environment was that their examples worked in. Received on Sun Mar 06 2011 - 12:12:02 CST
