I have not followed the context of this "thread", but...

>> Don't count on right to left, use trigger.

really?

Zoron and Xoaz almost always rely on the R-to-L ordering thing. It has been
_completely_reliable_ for quite some time already (and using it
additionally forces one to keep one's patching style neat and organized).

(Yia-sou Zoron! hope you agree with this high-handed statement!)

Xoaz uses trigger almost exklusively for type conversion:
"t i b l b"
and in cases where some kind of bizarre (dare I say abnormal?!) L-to-R
ordering is needed (e.g. when using 'gate' or trying to do math like (1. -
x) without resorting to using the dreaded ubiquitous 'expr'!)

oh, and also sometimes in some rare instances when max-voodo requires it.

Of course it goes without saying that using trigger is a matter of personal
choice. Everyone has her own personal way of max-patching. Using trigger
all over the place can sometimes help promote the infamous spaghetti-patch
look, which is neither fun to look at, nor to debug.

you say potato, I say potahto
or rather
you say potato, I say "apple of earth"

bzzt,

Subject: Pluggo review

There's a feature-length rave review of Pluggo, by the excellent Ian Waugh
(who I think lurks on this list?), in the not-February issue of MacFormat,
no. 85. Very nice to see this kind of coverage in the mainstream press -
it's the UK Mac mag with the biggest per-issue circulation.

Hi Steve,

Ben's patch was good except overflow. I've made an external for subdividing
a number, because I prefer implementing this kind of algorithm as an
external than making a complex patch with taking care of stack overflow,
more faster than patches and its algorithm is VERY simple (about 10 line in
C).

I've put the file at
http://www5.big.or.jp/~trustno1/takahiko/._tmp/partition.sit

(I'm also CC'ing this email to Max-list)

He didn't have weird hair when I met him. What happened?
