Now i get it. The confusing point is then, you put s in a series. that
leads to the conclusion a series in a series is different. but you
now a, b, c and d/1 reference the same block and the words contain the
same bits, but the bits are on different memory-locations. they "mean"
the same, but they are not the same.
i was using "same" in the meaning-sense. and then skipping sticks with
the series, but is a bit diffent, so different for the 'same? -
function. while an exact copy is same in the 'same? - sense. so i
thought you want to demo that and forgot the assignment. sorry ;)
Any problem in computer science can be solved with another layer of
indirection. But that usually will create another problem.
