Tale of design mistake lock in?[edit]

My fuzzy recollection is Feldman wrote something describing how he quickly (weeks?) concluded that using significant tabs had been a mistake. But how at that point, he had too many users, order 10?, to change it. Now, order 10_000+ users later... It's a cautionary tale for any protocol designer. And I'd really love to find a reference. 66.30.119.55 19:42, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

One reference is Eric S. Raymond's The Art of Unix Programming, which appears in print and in freely downloadable form. JöG 20:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)


Note: a pic of Feldman can be found at: [[1]] Also note that he is responsible for one of the greatest travesties in the history of programming languages significant whitespace (TAB on the beggining of a line) Incredibly, this mistake has been repeated in several modern languages, including Python and Ruby —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.82.184.3 (talk) 22:33, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
