>Amazon has listed volume "4A" of Knuth. I won't believe it until I get
my hands on it. Volume Three (Sorting and Searching), was published in
1973. Does this strike anyone else besides me as strange? Knuth had a
huge influence the history of computing--besides his contribution to
computing. I use the past tense because I haven't seen Volume 4 yet.
	Knuth lists 4A on www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~uno/taocp.html :
Combinatorial Algorithms, Part 1, Addison-Wesley, 2011), xvi+883pp.
ISBN 0-201-03804-8.  He also lists topics for 4B, 4C, .... and has
2020 as the target date for volume 5.  
	Strange?  Well, he's been busy: TeX, literate programming,
metafont, combinatorics ....
