Dear Liam, Who says I am uncertain? I merely ask you to consider the question. Posing it should not be taken to imply that I believe either in "self-commenting code" or that I think the best measure of what makes a good path is its string length (either long or short). As for your dogma that the code should be written with its future readers and maintainers in mind -- I agree with that so much, I might have come up with it myself. :-/ Cheers, Wendell On Mon, Sep 21, 2020 at 1:54 PM Liam R.
