For Kathy or Bert, about your book

Hi Kathy and Bert,
I got your book yesterday and while I've only gone through the first chapter so far I've noticed a couple typo's in some of your examples.
They are pretty minor, but so far in chapter 1 this is what I found:
Page 13, example on octal line reads:
int five = 06; // Equal to decimal 6
This should probably be:
int six = 06; // Equal to decimal 6
The other one I found was page 29. Under "Arrays of Object References". The paragraph talks about Dog is a subclass as animal as follows, but then the stuff that follows is about Cars (Subaru, Honda, Ferrari extend Car).
I was just wondering if you'd like me to keep track of these as I find them while reading your book?

Lance -
We appreciate the so-called 'errata'. Probably best to just send us emails when you find them - unless they bring up a question for the forum. As we become aware of 'errata' pages and new printings, etc. we will let you all know.


Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

I agree. Here's the link:
