There are a few places that our code is very fragile. The one that
causes the most debugging problems is that printOn often doesn't test
to see that pointers are nonNULL. ... I have
a routine that calls printOn when given an SPTR, but printOn tends to blow up.
Instead of having each printOn method check, how about having this
calling routine check?
sorry bozo :-) you're not thinking.
It's not the pointer to foo that is NULL its's pointers inside foo.
