The word "silly" hurts me a little bit,

That's good, that's very good. As I recall, I recently mentioned my strong conviction that a successful learning process requires PAIN. So you're definitely on a good way.

Merry Christmas to you, too, Japheth.:

I've converted to Islam recently - because it's always good to be with the winner.  :bgrin:

Yes. Additionally, if you're using symbolic debugging, you can easily watch not just the value of a pointer, but the values of the pointer's target.

It doesn't.

I have a theory on porting, rewrite it in the native format.

Yes, like the shark, crocodile and a number of others, get it right the first time and you don't have to adapt.  :P

japheth,

Personally I feel islam and christianity are both way over rated, atheism is the only real path to salvation. :biggrin:
