overloaded whitespace

This is a discussion on overloaded whitespace within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; http://www.research.att.com/%7Ebs/whitespace98.pdf What do you think of it? (circa 1998) I'm a bit suprised, to say the least...

    Interesting... I don't think I'd like the whitespace to be overloaded, though. Greek letters would be nice, but taking my phone off the hook would not be.
    Away.

    I think he's gone looney. Overload whitespace, NO!

    Composition operators, NO!

    LoL...that was a fairly enjoyable read.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
