I noticed over and over, here and in the manual,
this tendency to write everything as one big
function and then call it - now I see the
answer - optimization of local variables.
Can someone tell me exactly what this means
(what precisely is the difference in the way the
memory is allocated between calling it as a main()
function or just executing the statements?)
By the way, thanks for all the responses guys.
This way of learning a language is a lot better
than my FORTRAN 101 course way back in '81.
Course a sun workstation beats the hell out of cardpunch.
