I find this fascinating. (Maybe I'm easily amused.)

All the references I can find point to one tutorial, which could really
be much better (even if you don't include the endless typos, which drove
me nuts, especially where "were" and "we're" are interchanged. But,
again, maybe I'm easily confused.)

Anyway, is there more out there about modified preordered tree
traversal? Is there a 'definitive document' or is that tutorial it?
