# What Michel implied (i suppose) to tell
- it is bad to rely on implicit conversion, if you can avoid it
- it is worse, if such conversions are nls dependent, as it may introduce problems which are hard to identify
- 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
