I just discovered this site yesterday (actually a friend directed me here).
I am seeking a list that explains all the differences between the various "prints" Double/double (all the primitives) extends/implements etc.
It seems there should be a list for all of these things that explains the language and the meaning/purpose of everything.
THe closest example I can provide is our dictionaries. It is a collection of words and their definitions.
Is there anything like that in existence? If I don't understand what a Calabi-Yau is I can pick-up the OED and most likely I will find it's definition.
