Thanks for the compliment, but the explanation was written in a rather
informal way. However, it could be used as a basis for understanding how it
works, to then write an explanation for it. Also, I used an example of
multiple bases in the explanation, while the formal explanation should
probably be more general.
I've looked at the CVS version, and I see that it's like Rani says - the
explanation still holds, just changing reference to pointer.
I also included the above link in the explanation. However, as the link to
Daveeds posting from that one uses the link http://tinyurl.com/502f, this
might not be that lasting, so it could be good to include the original link
that this one points to, as well.
