Exegesis 7: Some other tyops
Message ID:
First, thanks Damian for doing this, and good show!

Smylers already pointed out a few errors in the document, but
here are a few others I noticed:

  * In "Why, how now, ho! From whence ariseth this?"

       We have this near the top:

        type FormArgs ::= Str|Array|Pair;

      and this below:

         type FormArgs ::= Str|Num|Array|Pair

      which is it? (The former -- :) -- appears later in the document
    in "Therefore, put you in your best array...")

  * In "What a block art thou..."

      We have a format like this:


    printing something like this:

      ...By the pricking of  ... A horse!...

    That should be

      ...By the pricking of  ...A horse!...

  * In "Therefore, put you in your best array..."

    "form doesn't losing track" should be "form doesn't lose track"

  * In "Or else be impudently negative..."

    "we simple put an" should be "we simply put an"

  * In "Thou shalt have my best gown to make thee a pair..."

    "that the string that contains a valid identifier" should be "that
    the string contains a valid identifier"

  * In "What you will command me will I do..."

      "there's not reason" should be "there's no reason".
