Yeaaaah! A book that has unittest! :) (I really think that should be standard in CS books, and you might as well ship them in digital form as well.)

Horrible process. Are they going to do the index, or do you have that joy?

"Near death" is more like it. But I hope the result was worth the fuss. I'll do my own index. By choice! Andrei

I read once that Donald Knuth didn't like what his publisher & type-setter were doing for one of his CS books so he decided to do his own type-setting. Also by choice. The result, of course, was TeX. Justin

Much as I love my name being mentioned next to Knuth's, I doubt anything like TeX will come out of my decision :o). Anyhow, the making of TDPL was a very interesting experience. I hope one day to write an article about it. Andrei

Some kind of word/phrase selector tool would be interesting. Comparing the occurrence rate of phrases from your text to some relevant corpus and selecting based on that might make for a starting point... -- ... <IXOYE><

I wonder what that would show. For one thing, I learned that "in vigor" is not nearly as frequent in English as I thought. Andrei

Glad to hear that choice, otherwise I suspect it would be useless. Who did you get as reviewers? Steve
