Peter,

Agree.  A lot of authors write about Ada knowing nothing about
it.  The "Hacker's Dictionary" is especially stupid in its remarks
about Ada.  Of course, the "Hacker's Dictionary" is not especially
enlightening aboutd anything else either, but people in Silicon
Valley will buy anything with the word "hacker" in the title.

Hedonic Holidays,

Richard
