1) What is your name? Jonathan or Bruce?
2) Could you locate an equivalent page on inductive logic, post it, and see
if your attempt to humble see_plus_plus works quite as well?
3) How many compilers can fit on the head of a pin?
4) Is there really a University of Woolloomooloo? Oh darn, that is four
P.S. Actually, I really like Python (and C too!) but the sad fact is that
Mr. plus has a point regarding the critical importance of execution speed
for the vast majority of applications and that C is still the most effective
language for writing fast and portable code.
