In your example in section C.1.3 the significant difference between listings C.1.14 and C.1.15 were not obvious and that caused me to entirely miss your point in the subsequent discussion. I had to go over the section several times before I noticed that the difference wasn't in the order of the lines with everything else being the same, but that the robot variable used to inflict damage on fastrobot in round 1 in listing C.1.15 was actually different than it was in the previous listing.

For the first several times through the section I thought the only difference was that you reordered the lines a bit. That made the following discussion very confusing as I thought the conclusion was the same for both the functional and OO cases as opposed to what you were saying.

I think you need to make the delta in these two listings obvious to ensure the point comes across.

Thanks for the note Mark! I'll definitely rework that section for clarity.
