Mozilla 1.7.3 shows it fine, too. FF bug or config issue?

FF didn't show it to me earlier, but it seems to work now.

Thanks for the tip, Jeff. It is now working for me as well,
with zero changes to my setup. Odd....

Hey, Jeff Hobbs got the last word. ;-)

Advocates of languages and programming methodologies sometimes compare
the current version of their favorite language to an old version of
their disfavored language, resulting in skewed comparisons. For
example, Conway writes

"Interprete d languages do two things much better than compiled
languages.

Firstly, they provide more sophisticated programming tools and support
for more advanced programming techniques. For example, Perl provides
hashed look-up tables and arbitrary-length arrays as core data types. C
doesn't even have a proper string type. Likewise, Perl's data sorting
facilities are integrated into the language, so the sorting criteria
are directly programmable.

Having all the basic tools of programming (i.e. high-level data types
and common algorithms) built into the language, rather than having to
build them yourself, means that you need to write less code to solve a
given problem."

I think most of the advanced programming techniques he mentions are
part of the C++ Standard Library.

That was a great article. I really enjoyed it. We need more like it.

It would have been nice to put in a blurb for some of the cool stuff
planned for 8.5. That way people could see that things are *happening*
in the Tcl world and Tcl is moving forward language wise.

That doesn't take away from the article though. It was just a thought.

Hi guys, I have an object which represents an "item" in a CMS "component" where an "item" in the most basic form just a field, and a "component" is effectively a table. "item" objects can be created and then added to "component" objects to build up the component definition. My dilemma comes in deciding how to read/write data to the "item"

I would be pleased if someone gives me a general idea; how I am going to do this. I am using visual C++ .NET 2003. I made a simple program using conventional C++ code. This program accepts data from the user, does some calculations and outputs the result back to the user using the console.
