A Regular Expression Matcher Code Listing

In the code listing for the matchhere function in the chapter "A Regular Expression Matcher", a line reads: returnmatchhere(regexp+1, text+1); . I believe that the correct line is: return matchhere(regexp+1, text+1);

Note from the Author or Editor:
The reader is correct. There should be a space after the return keyword. This problem exists only in the Safari version, not the printed book.

5th paragraph 2nd to last complete sentence on page

Sentence reads "... has an opcode of Ldc_R8, which will load an 8-bit real (that is, a floating-point number) on the stack. I believe 8-bit should be 8-byte.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The reader is correct. Please change "8-bit" to "8-byte" on p. 121

2nd paragraph

It should be -1549758592 mod 32 as the number of slots is 32 and -1549758592 mod 31 is 11 not 0 (mod 32 is 0).

Note from the Author or Editor:
lease change "mod 31" to "mod 32" as the reader indicated.

"Simon Peyton Jones" is incorrectly alphabetized. His last name is "Peyton Jones" not "Jones". The same mistake also occurs in the index.
