i'm beginning to think that these snippets might be a duplication of what is already in the faq --twkm 19:05, 27 Dec 2004 (PST) That can't hurt, as long as they point at the FAQ entiries, also. However, this page is vast - it really wants splitting up into bite-sized chunks. --Kate 00:05, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I say we stuff commonly asked (in #c) code/frequently explained idioms etc. here.. --noselasd 03:30, 3 Jan 2005 (PST)
why have a bad typedef?
well, because the snippet is mostly about what you should not do. --twkm 19:43, 2 Jan 2005 (PST)

as of 0245 some of the edits seem odd. here are my thoughts.
- sorry about misspelling your name.
- the text explains why the examples presented don't work, i'm not too sure why a comment is also needed.
- what do you find non-working about int c = tolower(getchar());?
- i'm not sure what text is being referenced for the description as to why struct item was renamed to struct item_.
- the reserved namespace is str followed by a lower-case letter, thus str_tolower does not invade.
- identifiers beginning with STR are not reserved, why rename it?
- indentation in mediawiki doesn't work too well for code, i.e., the previous code did not 'overflow' for me and perhaps others. the replacement may flow onto multiple lines for some.
