Hi Igor,

I think it depends on how much experience you have in general, and with the language your using and the problem domain in particular. If you're new to the language or problem domain I suspect that you'll find it hard to maintain a mental image of the program no matter what language its in; and easy if you are very familiar with the language and the domain.

Food for thought.
Thank you again.
