Re: What is a regression?
I still think that is too strong a position. A good fraction
of compiler time is spent bugging out user code.. one could
even say the job of a compiler is not generating machine code,
but telling programmers they're idiots :)
Every compiler version I've tried has been telling me this for years.
When can we expect some *positive* feedback from compilers?
"Congratulations, your code is less of a spaghetti-mess than it was last
revision, keep up the good work." I smell a request for enhancement...
