When you use the new operator to create an array, you may omit the dimension which specifies the number of array elements to create and instead follow the empty square bracket pair ([]) with a list of initial values in curly braces. Such an expression creates an array large enough to hold all of the elementsspecified between the braces, and initialises the array to contain those elements. The elements in braces must all be of the type specified after the new keyword, of course.

Well, I am at work.

It's usually page 23... Aaaaand once again the nearest book is the reason for the meme. So I shan't quote it.

Page 23 of the Principia Discordia. Read and find out. Or you could read Illuminatus.

Zeng Xi said: "In late spring, when spring dresses are ready, with five or six capped men, and six or seven lads, I should like to bathe in the River Yi, enjoy the breeze and the Wu-yu altar, then chant all the way home."
The Master said with a deep sigh "I am for Dian!"
When the three gentlemen left, Zeng Xi stayed behind. Zeng Xi said "What do you think of the three gentlemen's statements?"
The Master said: "Well, every one spoke his mind, that is all."
Zeng Xi said: "Sir, why did you smile at Iou?"

Analects being where it was was pure happenstance, but I was rather happy when it turned out to be the closest book to my computer terminal

Yep.

I'm thinking I should keep my dictionary of quotations close, just for this sort of thing, and also sigs :)

Hmmm. The nearest page 123 is (a) technically confidential and (b) entirely code. The second nearest only has four sentences on page 123. And the *next* nearest is on someone else's desk. Sorry :)
