Alas, it is closed. But I remember being asked in a job interview, what they pieces of "C language" meant and they were all ways of
doing simple things. Like doing a+b usually using multiple operators and levels of indirection. Never knew whether this was useful or
not. I guess if it was assumed that one would occasionally, or more than occasionally fall upon code written by people in a rush, or
fast and loose coders. Like Meteorology people coding in FORTRAN or C. :)

Have Fun,

P.S. If I had some of that old stuff I'd post it and you'd see what I mean. I guess there'll a Y2K ioccc contest!:)
