# What year exactly did Dijkstra distribute EWD682?

The Dijkstra's archive says EWD682 was written or distributed between 1976--1979. I wonder if you can tell the exact year. It might not be easy since the archive itself didn't make it.

• Considering it references something from September 1978 in the footnotes you can eliminate 1976 and 1977. – orlp Feb 16 at 23:57
