Suggest substitution of the phrase iself-evident[/i] with obvious as former means evident without proof or reasoning with the latter meaning easily discovered, seen, or understood; readily perceived by the eye or the intellect. There is reasoning for difference of compiler and interpreter but to paraphrase Pierre de Fermat, there is not enough room here.
