Error compromises my book

I'm reviewing the manuscript for Radio UserLand Kick Start. The error in this sentence is one of my favorite gaffes in six years of writing computer books:

The first step in becoming a Radio UserLand developer is to explore Radio.root, the object database that compromises most of the program's core functionality.

The word I was looking for: comprises. I'm almost sad the typo won't see print.

Comments

An excellent developer's summary!
