The underlying stuff is all bits. I am glad I don't have to deal with them directly.

Bob, anything to say about prologs data-dependence? (Maybe I made it to Bobs killfile - dunno). I have read some of Date's books.
Kidding aside - it's a strange statement about a system with code-data equivalence.

It doesn't make sense.

Changing, yes. Yet they need to be clear.

Yes. So I'll repeat:
It is important to find a good way of stating requirements. Up to now I don't think you have found it. Received on Sat Apr 29 2006 - 23:29:33 CEST
