Readers sound off.
Errata

The opening paragraph in the January 2001 issue (81) of Doc Searls' Linux for Suits article, “The Morlock Market”, is actually a quote from Neal Stephenson and should have been separated from the article text and noted as such.

Listing 2 of John Hall's “A Crash Course in SDL”, issue 81, reads, beginning at line 15:

value= ((red >> fmt->Rloss) << fmt->Rshift) +
           ((green >> fmt->Gloss) << fmt->Gshift) +
           ((blue >> fmt->Bloss) << fmt->Bshift);
return value;
}

But should have read:

value = ((red > fmt->Rloss) << fmt->Rshift) +
           ((green > fmt->Gloss) << fmt->Gshift) +
           ((blue > fmt->Bloss) << fmt->Bshift);
return value;
}
Not to worry, the listing is in correct form on our ftp site.
