The C Standard Does Not Protect You

"...the behavior of C’s governing body is very clear. We will not introduce warnings into your old code, even if that old code could be doing something dangerous. We will not steer you away from mistakes, because that could shake the veneer that what your old code does is, in fact, wrong. We will not make it easier for new programmers to write better C code."

great article btw, thanks

@cancel
At least one programming language free from idiots who need a programming language to nurture them. "New programmers", my ass. For those who "want to write better code", educate yourself first, stupids.

@jeff @cancel “We make our language incompatible every iteration, making your old code incompatible and broken without the safety of telling you the changes first”
COBOL mentality.
