Re: Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce

Happy Bloomsday.

Who would have figured this guy to be a Joycean?

Re: Random quotes

Thanks, sounds cool. I'm quite good with C++, but I don't want to go rusty.
Here's a hello whirlpool example of a wrapper for native C++. Easy. So you could offer your products as .NET assemblies!

Re: Random quotes

Imagine maintaining code like this in the same scope. Does it even run??
x = pi #yes, the famous pi 
f,i = modf(x)
print(f,i) # 0.14159, 3.0
