@sklivvz I agree with you on that.

@sklivvz "expressive" means "someone reading the code can see the intent easily". Yes it's subjective, but it's more meaningful than you suggest.

comment Why do people use programming books?
I'm not sure when that time was. I took a look at my old CS books recently. The standard has improved vastly. For example, I used 'Functional Programming With Miranda' years ago. I used 'Real World Haskell' recently. The older book is mystifying today, despite basically using the same concepts and paradigms as Haskell.
