WANTED: a WHAT-IF function. (No, not a reasoner but a dreamer) I never noticed this. I mean you just take care of every case. As a programmer you just keep adding CASE or if-Then-else. But once it’s done, it’s done. you HAVE to have taken care of every reasonable contingency otherwise you have a crappy program. But I never thought Of the exclusiveness Of this way.
