after days discussion over tango in the NG, i find tango is great!! thx tango team!! and as we can see , even alex & walter would need great effort to make the stdio which depends on C performs better than tango(though that might because of some cache stuff). so doesn't it indicate something? and I do appreciate two team people work on different paths. let's rethink IO totally. In my opinion cache thingie should be set as default and the example of getting standard input needs the flush would be easy to forget. But..... i would rather leave that easy to forget! Reason? Because I can easily find i forget to add .flush when i test my program, and i get defautly all IO cached. let's do it in stdio way, we don't need .flush at all , yet we lose the performance. that's tradeoff. I guess people would prefer the 1st way. i think what tango need to do is better document, and focus on easy use. as the first time i touch tango, the installation is somewhat err, how to say not so free from thinking, u must read the doc CAREFULLY ENOUGH to make ur tango installed properly a better way should be redundancy document? and clearly enlarge font for each step , highlight the crucial point, or command ?
