If you don't mind, send any refs you get to me too.
I know of one reference, but it didn't say much.
It was a printed chat with Brian Kerninghan. He intimated
that C++ may never be a product.  Another, similar conecpt to C++
is Objective-C, made by a company called Productivity
Products Inc. in Connecticut. They incorporate Smalltalk
like hierarchical message bindings into C.

By the way, Smalltalk is now available on a Tektronix box.
The Tek 4404 complete system (hardware, bit mapped screen, Smalltalk-80,
and a UNIX look-a-like O.S.) is $16,000.

			yours truly,

P.S. Anyone else out there in Netland have any impressions of the 4404?
