Now, now, rgb - play nicely ;-)

without wanting to exacerbate the holy war, do you actually know anybody that doesn't use 'intrinsic none' (given the choice and/or time in the case of legacies) and a compiler that supports free format? an imposition of the choice of language can cause you to be relieved, or to swear like a fishmonger's wife - whatever the language, imho. the latter's less likely in C, admittedly. many scientists are going over to c++ these days, though (the cern suite's largely in c++ these days, right?)

no need - she started packing up her kennel as soon as she heard about you calling her fat :-)
