It's been a while, Advogato.
Wow, ncm and redi are
man, how do you find time to blog like five times a day or
I'm writing this
little game. In a startling
departure from my usual modus codandi, I decided to
give this newfangled C++ thing a spin. Now I'm happily
writing code that looks like this:
MAX_BOMBS, FALLING_LABEL_TTL> falling_labels;
Different language, but I still feel that I'm
essentially banging at the keyboard at random until I arrive
at something that compiles. Plus ça change...
I'm trying to improve my English. I'd like to understand why
"she told me something" is allowed, but "she explained me
something" makes native English speakers emit a parse error.
Does anyone out there know where I can get a BNF for English?
