However, the generator operators make it possible to create pipeline operations, as is common in lazy functional programming languages. You can't, of course, argue that any specific operator is necessary. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@xxxxxxxx If a soldier is asked why he kills people who have done him no harm, or a terrorist why he kills innocent people with his bombs, they can always reply that war has been declared, and there are no innocent people in an enemy country in wartime. The answer is psychotic, but it is the answer that humanity has given to every act of aggression in history. --Northrop Frye
