In a recent joint operation, Microsoft and Borland have announced their
knowledge of a virus designed to target source code.

The virus, known as acpp.die works across many platforms including Windows,
Linux, OS/2 and Unix and has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of
hours of work lost.

Described by a representative of Borland as 'A virus that is extremely
destructive in that it deletes all binary { and }'s from all dot c / dot
cpp files on the computer' but stated 'we are taking action to work together
to stop this virus from spreading and disrupting your coding'.

In a later statement, the anti-virus project manager at Microsoft made the
following statement:

'We are working extremely hard to combat this virus, but the full force of
this virus is still completely out of scope'... :)

In a surprise move that stunned the industry and left Borland
slack jawed. M$ announced it will sidestep the virus with a scopeless

"It's really just the logical extension of the .NET framework" said Mike
chief architect at the software giants computer language research division.
research has shown that lining up brackets is what gives people the most
so we remeoved them from the language entirely"

Gone also is the position dependence of code. Every line in a Visual C+-
(pronounced Visual C give or take a little) can be positioned anywhere in
the code without affecting the programs operation.

"People always remember code they should have put somewhere well after
they have moved to another section of the program. Now they can just
type in the appropriate source as they remember it and we'll move it to
we think it should go"

Programmers will not be the only ones to enjoy the benefits of Visual C+-.
Users as well will find it easier to use programs created with the new set
of tools slated to ship early in the new year.

"Users complain about having to learn new tools with each application. Using
our tools guarantees that your app looks exactly the same as any other
app, so users will quickly learn how to invoke the spell checking function"

When asked about applications in which a spell checking function makes no
sense, the spokesperson declined to answer and called a quick end to the
press conference.

[View Quote] I invoked my internal AppWizard.. answered some simple questions.. and
out it came.

Of course it's all BS just like an AppWizard framework. If you look closely
it's not real.
