Re: Off Topic: Evolution of a Programmer

ex programmer
Ok, I'll byte. In C/C++, 2b is neither an identifier nor a constant. But then
if (0x2b & !0x2b) { 
doesn't read as smoothly.
The & is a bitwise operator, whereas ! is a logical NOT. Did you mean
if (0x2b & ~0x2b) { 
if (0x2b && !0x2b) { 
Either way it comes out false.

Why stop there? Doesn't XML enable far deeper levels of convolution? 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE doc SYSTEM "doc.dtd">
   <para>Hello World</para>

<!ELEMENT doc (para)+>

<xsl:output method="text"/>
<xsl:template match="para">
