Should exclaim "late-stage capitalism", maybe?

Is this true that everything that's possible with is also possible with -FO (+)? — Much more verbose but also much less awkward.

@amiloradovsky same for me. For software documentation I tend to read enough linearly until I get an idea of the basic concepts. Then I start with a minimal base and play around from there.

I generally try to build some incarnation of the end goal I want to achieve, and then look up the relevant parts in the documentation that I need for each given part of the problem.

@saper I'll happily provide the LaTeX sources along with the PDF. If they want .doc, they aren't people I'm willing to work with, no matter how serious or professional they may otherwise be.

I understand why they may want .docs, but it also tells me that we are fundamentally, and incompatibly different, and as such, shouldn't waste each others time.

(Been there, done that, tried to work with one such agent - don't want to ever again.)

@minoru @newt OK. Thank you for your time and enthusiasm.
Automatic & parallel GC is known to be a difficult topic, I hope the rails of linear logic may bring some simplicity and/or certainty into it. If only I could understand it better.

just when i thought update notes couldn't get any worse...

The main obstacle for having a in a high-level language is an efficient : no — no problem…

But 's (linear) type-system, and how they managed to get much of the benefits of GC without actually having one, is still a mystery for me.
The sounds easy and obvious, but something is missing: can't be that simple…

P.S. ++11 also kind-of supports it, AFAIK, but that is not the best illustration anyways.
