function (poly AND iso)morphism and variable inheritance.

Take another example in qb4.5: Code:```CALL sub1(blah%) sub1 blah% [code] [/quote] I think you are streching the definition of isomorphism a bit too far. You need to be able to show some form of one to one correspondence between the two. Simply have two ways of acheiving the same thing isn't isomorphism, otherwise all languages have isomorphism: [code] a = b; a = b + 0; a = b + 1 - 1;``` Are all mathmatically equivalent, but I dont think it is correct to say each of these is isomorphic. esus saves....

They compile to the same code, thus they are isomorphic. In your example, I imagine a good compiler would compile to the same code too. Peace cannot be obtained without war. Why? If there is already peace, it is unnecessary for war. If there is no peace, there is already war." Visit www.neobasic.net to see rubbish in all its finest.
