After a long time spent fiddling with sockets again, I get to
:; name-client `cat /tmp/NameService ` list . CORBA system exception.
Did I expect that? Should I have done?
. . .
CLORB server-side code is not only putting its sockets into non-blocking mode in order to poll them, but it's busy-waiting between polls. As soon as I get it to work at all that'll be the first thing to go out of the window
. . .
In reference to the quoted example in the OOP Considered Harmful thread, I also have to say
* (floor 11 7) 1 4
Not every language is limited to returning one value only from a function
