A few other cute tech report titles
After seeing a few references to the paper I mentioned yesterday
(Functional Programming with Bananas, Lenses, Envelopes, and Barbed Wire),
I saw a few more silly titles on tech reports in the bibliography of
Scrap your boilerplate: a practical design pattern for generic programming.
And I had seen a reference to the Feng Shui paper, somewhere else.
Some of the papers are serious, some do not appear to be quite as serious.
Here's the list so far:
- Dealing with Large Bananas
(a response, I suspect, to the Meijer/Fokkinga/Paterson paper)
Putting "Putting type annotations to work" to work
(a not-yet-published response to an earlier paper "Putting type annotations to work")
- A fold for all seasons
I suppose there are a bunch of others.
Reminds me of the silly game that some of the speakers at one of
the C++ standards meetings were playing a few years ago:
try to make a somewhat
reasonable cover for introducing a specific word (like, say, "Aardvark"
or "Artichoke") into a technical C++ design discussion.
