I can't imagine how to store an entity. When I hear of it having been done, I just pretend I heard tuple instead, even though I admit I can't imagine how to actually store a tuple. All I know how to do with a machine is mimic assignment. I think Codd was prepared to exclude pronouns, too.
Tuples might not seem any better, but at least we can imagine how they are applied by operators. Received on Thu Nov 29 2007 - 20:48:50 CET
