One of the few features I was really looking forward to. And I am happy with it.

Null is very often a special case - and now I can clearly express in the code if this special case is something that needs to be delt with, or something that will not happen. Meaning guard code is in added where it is needed, and not filling up the code where doesn't do anything.

Why you would not want the compiler to help identifying inherit traps is something I just don't understand. Maybe because I never had to struggle with assembly on the VIC20 - I was one of those modern kids that did assembly on the C64. Smile | :)
