Santa Brings MS Patents for Editing, Compiling Code
Contributed by Mike on Tuesday, December 28th, 2004 @ 11:37AM
from the good-work,-patent-examiners dept.

theodp writes "Courtesy of the USPTO, Microsoft found two new patents
under the tree this holiday season. The first covers 'Editing a
software program in a common language runtime environment,' while the
second lays claims to 'Compiling multiple source language files that
share a common library,' which must come as a real shocker to members
of the DEC OpenVMS Common Language Environment, IBM Language
Environment (LE), and IBM Integrated Language Environment (ILE) teams.
Gotta teach those patent examiners to use Wikipedia instead of
Microsoft Encarta for their prior art searches!"
