Any programming language which lets you do that without half a dozen includes, namespace declarations and misery is not worth its salt.

My god, what a fantastic description.

I don't understand it at all.

I hope when he says BASIC he means 10 GOTO 20.

Every time you use a GOTO Bill Gates kills a standard.

A simple yet vague SYNTAX ERROR IN LINE 10 would have sufficed.

My local Woolworths has already re-opened as a B&M, a cheapo food and homewares chain (you know the kind of place, Snickers bars printed in Arabic for 10p and jars of Dolmio that expired a month ago for 20p).

Amazing that they got it all up and running less than 3 weeks after Woolies closed down, when you think of all the paperwork and red tape that must have been involved.

But it's a really half-arsed refit. They've kept most of the Woolies fixtures and fittings and made only minor alterations to the aisle layout. The till desk is completely unchanged (they've even kept the Woolies tills!) and is completely unsuitable for what is basically now a food supermarket - people are having to lug large heavy baskets of food onto the counter, and due to the very limited space, the assistant has to bag everything up on the floor and pass the bags back over the counter. They should have spent a few quid on installing a proper supermarket-style checkout area with conveyor belts.

Lots of the old Woolies branding remains, e.g. signs on doors in the Woolies colours and typeface, and the fittings in turquoise laminate with beech trim. Very much like the incomplete job that Morrisons did when it first rebranded some of the Safeway stores.
