  • Reading S16, I was struck by the lack of abstraction over the underlying Unix API for chown and chmod. Nothing wrong with having the existing functions lying about in a module that people can "use ...

  • Are duplicate values in any/all/none junctions expected to "collapse" such that each value becomes unique? For example, should any(1,2,2,1,2,3,2) internally reduce to the equivalent of any(1, 2, 3)? ...

  • HaloO, reading the "Collapsing Junction states" thread I wondered how eqv and === handle junctions. I would expect all(1,2) === all(1,2) to evaluate to True and not expand to 1 === 1 && 1 === 2 && 2 ...
