Thought this was interesting..

The latest "C++ Report" (, July-August 97
has an article on "Moving to Standard C++".

Dealing with Language Complexity, the (draft) Standard C++ has
        74 keywords, while the Ada95 ISO standard has 69
        and Ada doesn't include "true/false" as keywords.

So C++, which doesn't have anything for Concurrency or Real-Time has
5 more keywords. Interesting to see if they ever add more for those
missing features, or if they ever add those features!

The article goes on to say that everyone will have to re-compile
everything, and CHANGE LOTS OF CODE to fit the new standard .. when
it comes out...
