Iteration Abstraction in Sather. Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems, Jan 1996.
|Optional, but interesting. Are Sather's iterators more like Algol's call-by-name or CLU's iterators?|

Think Java. Write new applications in Java. Rewrite legacy apps with Java.
Don't upgrade or downgrade. Sidegrade instead to a Java desktop device. Don't get hit with the PC's massively negative ROI.
I don't understand why anybody would be programming in anything other than Java.
