( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
FYI -- my comments about 'theory of operations' and the need to have a heavy and strict order of method calls (see PAM code in C, the Windows API, Java socket API's, whatever) is annoying and could be cleaned up -- but that's not a comment about IO::All, but rather API design in general.

You lost me when you speak of 'an orthogonality argument', what are you proposing should be othogonal to what? Again, the commentary of IO::All is just interlaced into my post as reference, I think the '>' operators are indeed (1) succinct but are not (2) obvious enough. My biggest issue with API design is that API's are not clean and succint enough, and IO::All does a good job in this case. But it's sketchy when it comes to expected behavior, IMHO -- there are obviously tradeoffs to consider between the two.
