RIP DMR

with 3 comments

The first thing I came to know (from Ashish) when I woke up this morning was that Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie had passed away. Not an untimely death, I suppose, but still, a very sad day. He will be missed.

C: passing a char ** to a const char **

leave a comment »

This is meant as some sort of note to myself, but someone might find it useful.

In short, the ISO C standard does not allow assigning a char ** to const char **. Here is why.

Many thanks to Olivier Gay for the link.
