  • I have all the code I checked still hanging around on a box somewhere...all that cutting and pasting gets tedious :)

    • Ohyeah, I didn't think of that. But anyway, your code is from the QC1 stage, and I made a few changes between there and the final version -- and I don't remember exactly what changes. So if I used your code, I'd have been always haunted by the idea that it failed to reflect those changes. Anyway, it was good for me to make one last sweep thru the book before calling it definitively done.

      I wonder if anyone actually looks at these tars that accompany ORA books.

      • I have to admit that I download the tar's. It's just plain easier when you want to steal^wstudy the code.

        I have lifted at least 3 or 4 sections from a variety of programs offered as tarballs from a variety of tomes.

        A tar file of the code is the second best thing, errata is the first, that O'Reilly's website for a book offers. Then again most good authors that have websites for their books seem to have an errata section as well as a section for code from the book.
