No, I can't begrudge these folks. They're wonderful human beings, truly.

pronounced "Mr. ay backlash plus backslash plus Devac", of course.

    I wish you well and the amount of bullshit you can endure only proves your passion.

<3, Devac. Thanks man, and the same to you. :)

Just rolls off the tongue, like any product of a hydrolysis reaction or a name of an Icelandic volcano.

Lol, it disappeared in the quotation, too. Perfect.

Not even the stuff written after two spaces of indentation is displayed verbatim.

  There are no escape characters in C.

Which is unfortunate. It's actually supposed to be C++.

In this one instance I say it's a feature, not a bug ;)

Oh, now you're just being reasonable about a language that allows you to commit some proper code-atrocities:

  #include <stdio.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

  int main(void)


char * str = (char*)malloc(1);

free((void*)(str[10] = '\0'));

str[1] = 'a';

printf("%s", str);


return 0;


This compiles and doesn't cause segfault. Believe me, I get what you are saying.

EDIT: Changed the allocated amount of space, not that it mattered to the compiler…
