Even programming languages can suffer from the unintended inference. I've had to deal with programming environments where

if (a and b) then c
if (b and a) then c

yield identical results, but one takes hours to complete, and the other takes a fraction of a second, in most cases. There are other examples, but this is sufficient. Received on Tue Apr 06 2004 - 13:27:36 CDT
