How is a Programmer Like a Pathologist?

Blogging platforms like Blogger are totally inadequate, because they don't support embedding interactive code in posts. So this is just an indirection for the real post at: https://blog.bracha.org/exemplarDemo/exemplar2021.html?snapshot=BankAccountExemplarDemo.vfuel#

I don't think the format works well, and I found it hard to follow. Lots of this going on:

* "try to the/a "
* "okay" (scrolls up) "wait, do what again?" (scrolls back down)
* "try to the/a "
* "oh, right, okay" (scrolls up) "now what?" (scrolls back down)

Then it seems like the text is out of sync with the demo. For example, "If you click on it [balanc] you'll see a a comment: (* :exemplar: BankAccount balance: 100 *)". Except I don't see that at all.

Boy, that got mangled. How about:

* "try to [...]"
* "okay" (scrolls up) "wait, do what again?" (scrolls back down)
* "try to [...]"
* "oh, right, okay" (scrolls up) "now what?" (scrolls back down)

Sorry, the scrolling behavior can be problematic at times - depending on the size of the window etc. Of course, that is not the point at all.

Not sure about not seeing the comment.
