Are you familiar with the new features in C++2000?

Continuous or discrete?
Well, as you probably know:
"There are two main types of errors that may affect discrete Fourier transforms: aliasing and leakage."
So if we are concerned at all about false translations of power falling in some frequency range outside the range, or smearing of power across the frequency spectrum, then better go with continuous FFT.
Girl power is bad enough without these kinds of problems!
Another consideration is that "In general, the discrete Fourier transform of a real sequence of numbers will be a sequence of complex numbers of the same length."
We have seen around here that complex numbers can cause plenty of trouble on their own! :D
