Can anybody enlighten me and get me back to the right way?
I feel some satanic forces making me believe that it is silly and stupid
to have a copyright and a license (other than public domain) on files
that contain trivial source code. for example, I would laugh at the
/* foo blah blah
* copyright the LAUGHAFBLE group
* license stuff: you should, you may, you must, ....
* blah blah ..
* yet again
* once more
assign(int x, int y)
x = y;
but I have hope for an exorcise.
Isn't it far better to have a "trace" comment such as:
/* written for NetBSD on Feb 31 1984 */
[at least, this saves a lot of tree when you a2ps|lpr]
