in reply to How to avoid eval()?

Mea culpa boys and girls! The error was mine, and what is more, it's not the first time I complain about ordering problems falsely attributed to Perl. All I can say in my defense is that recursion is difficult to manage for some of us, like me.

Apart from that, I still claim the right to speak of the well ordering of a recursive set because we are not in a theoretical discussion and the well order, unlike sorting, indicates a specific order. If sets are by definition unordered in the most recent set theory (I trust you on this), you remain however absolutely allowed to speak of your own ordered sets, as it was obvious here.

The property of being a recursive set may be trivial and thus it's precisely easier to understand it as I meant, i.e. as a set made by recursion.

As both of these concepts applied, mathematically, as well as natural-linguistically to my purpose - but better in the second sense - I take your reaction as an eagerness to show your own level of study that is not welcome among persons of kind behaviour: no one will look better digging into one's ignorance, but the quality of our cyber-life decreases this way. Why do you think no computer won the Turing test already? Because they speak exactly like you would like me to speak? Have a good day!

Back again simon. Same ol'palava.

Any good monastery needs moralists, and under that aspect we are all one and the same person. May your present be as promising as your past!
