More on WSIL

Simon says: "The main difference is that the spec has both IBM & Microsoft's name on the cover.". Humm... wasn't the original DISCO spec written by MS, IBM and Ariba? </p>

WSIL?

Timothy Appnel on WSIL. OK, so I must be missing something.... How's this different from the old DISCO again? Can anyone explain? Simon? </p>

Modest Sam

Sam Ruby says: "His description of me however is, shall we say, a wee bit over the top. I consider myself more of a teambuilder / cheerleader." I'd like to point out that such a role can be just as important, as well. In fact, in some cases, it is...

More on MC++ FAQ

Sam says: "Judging from how much you helped me during the book, I bet you and I could start one. How about it?". I thought about it, but Charles wrote me and said he had been working on one for the past few days... However, I'm thinking we all probably...

Sam & Reviewing

Sam Gentile: "BTW, Tomas was a Technical Reviewer on my Visual C++.NET book and was a huge resource!!". Thanks, Sam! I gotta say, working with you was a real pleasure, and I'm quite happy about how your work turn out! Keep up the good work! </p>

New Books

My copies of John Cough's "Compiling for the .NET Common Language Runtime" and Martin Fowler's "Refactoring" just arrived... Great!

MC++ and IL Optimizations

Charles Cook on IL optmizations performed by the Managed C++ compiler: "I've not not seen any mention of this elsewhere. Maybe its just a rumour put about by the VC++ team :-)" Not at all, actually. The MC++ compiler does indeed run the generated code thorugh the backend optimizer, doing...
