If no one minds too much I would like to get something off my chest and state my least favorite programming text i.e. Stroustrup's C++ Reference. Supposedly it was written in English but I couldn't tell. I wish I still had the copy to quote a particular paragraph I have in mind which I found particularly indecipherable but in general my complaints are he speaks at length about a particular topic but does not inform the reader what that topic is until late in the paragraph and does so in a vague abstract manner which leaves my head spinning as I am dumbfounded by both the vague manner and as yet undisclosed vague topic. It's only computer programming not the mysteries of the cosmos as revealed by advanced science and mathematics. It shouldn't be that hard to learn to print "Hello World" onto the screen. Thanks for tolerating my diatribe Best Wishes Cheerios
