Yea, I got to thinking about that and remember it was around '85 or '86 when we had what was called "Windows" installed on a PC in our compatibility lab.

The update "Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 4" can't be installed."
Running 10.5.7 on a Intel MacBookPro I get the above message when trying to install the Java update 4 ver 1.0 which I received via Software Update a few minutes ago. I quit all other apps including browsers. There is no explanation. It just has a red exclamation point and says "Cannot be Installed", then "An Error Occurred during Installation". It would be nice if there was a clue. How do I find out what the problem is?

Furthermore, this reflects my understanding of the situation in the USA only. If you need legal advice, hire a lawyer.) Yes, and no. Radio stations pay a royalty to the composers and (lyric) authors (or, more correctly, to the publishing company to which they sold the rights) indirectly through license contracts with ASCAP and BMI (and sometimes a 3rd agency, SECAC, which represents a miniscule portion of the authors and composers). ASCAP and BMI license their entire libraries (and not just to radio stations, but also to stores that play music, bars, restaurants, and night clubs) for a single negotiated fee, take samples of music usage, and distribute their collections (less collection fees and profits) to the rights holders in proportion to the works' standings in the sample results. On the other hand, the actual performers (or the holders of their royalty rights) receive nothing from the radio stations. They are held to be fully compensated by the exposure they receive and the increased record and live performance ticket sales resulting therefrom. (Except, of course perf...

Re: "out" and "in out"
"no reliable initial value" means, you cannot rely on the value, but it may have a value. This depends on the parameter passing mechanism, which is _not_ related to the parameter mode (contrary to what many people think). So the parameter mode is there (nearly) solely for the information of the reader. The parameter passing mechanism for all kinds of parameters is defined in the RM. There are parameters passed by copy (in and out), by reference; for some it is explicitly left undefined. In your case, the passing mechanism is by reference, so you get what you get. But don't rely...

Problem in "X (1).Re := X (1).Re + 1"
This is a thought experiment. First, in RM 4.1.6: * when the generalized_indexing is used within a primary where a name denoting a constant is permitted. This means declare package V is new Vectors (Complex); X : V.Vector; begin X (1).Re := X (1).Re + 1; end; is interpreted as declare package V is new Vectors (Complex); X : V.Vector; begin Reference (X, 1).Element.all.Re := Constant_Reference (X, 1).Element.all.Re + 1; end; Is this OK? If this is the truth, and if Vectors is implemented by reference-counting. (I don't know copy-on-write is permitted in Ada.Contain...

(mapcar 'quote '("1" "2" "3" "4"))
