In ACM Software Engineering Notices, vol. 13, no. 1, pp. 17-21 (1988), the author published the paper “Software reuse myths”. This paper comments on these “myths” in the light of recent technology advances: (1) software reuse is a technical problem; (2) special tools are needed for software reuse; (3) reusing code results in huge increases in productivity; (4) artificial intelligence will solve the reuse problem; (5) the Japanese have solved the reuse problem; (6) Ada has solved the reuse problem; (7) designing software from reusable parts is like designing hardware using integrated circuits; (8) reused software is the same as reusable software; and (9) software reuse will just happen
