p1051: "Some of C++ most important features - classes, inheritance, and
dynmic binding - can interfere with the abillity of software developers and
maintainers to understand the code they work with."..."Conventional
tools...woefully inadequate when applied to C++ with its penchent for
overloaded names, independent scopes that are not lexically nested, both
static and dynamic object types"...[tools have to understand] "the
semantics of class hierarchies and dynamically bound functions"...[and
can]..."provide a qualitive improvement in the environment available to C++
p1050: "No alternative to modifying a C++ Compiler to output the appropriate database"
"Pragmatic concerns of day-to-day life"
"Feeling...the time and effort to understand a system drops significantly..."
"Users claim that the abillity to follow a series of function calls

an edit window on the defintion of that function reduces some of the

"C++ programmers have freely chosen to XREF even when the package was
incomplete[had] nontrivial bugs[and]rather lacklustre performance"
