Like I said. :-) Took me an afternoon.
Mind you, I am the type who, when faced with a new language, tends to
read everything slowly, chew the cud, *then* start writing. I read
the whole of Stroustrup and a couple of other books before writing a
line of C++ -- not an approach I recommend to others, but if I had to
do it again (heaven forfend), I'd do the same.
