Oh, piss off.  I'm only quoting what I read in the technical report which
was, in case you didn't know it, put out by AT&T Bell Laboratories.  If you
want to argue with the author of the CSTR (I won't try and spell it because
1) I don't have the papers at hand and 2) your little snide comment makes it
not worth the effort) go right ahead.  He states rather explicitly there
that C++ is also being called C and that what was C is being called "old C".
I only know what I read in the papers.  When the person who currently has
the papers returns from the business trip they're on, I'll be more than glad
to cite the exact statement, CSTR and page number and everything.

Sort of makes you look a little foolish, doesn't it?
