    local variables

    i have to fill in a true or false in a question:
    Functions can have local variables. Is this true or false??I think it 's false because functions always have local variables.

    It's true....

    You think it's false that functions can have local variables because they always have local variables? Huh?

    Or expressed as a boolean function......

    Its not not true that (if functions can have local variables) OR (functions always have local variables) then functions have local variables.

    You sure? I heard the drilling industry's getting its hands deeper and deeper into the software industry lately. Something having to do with Gates's father being a miner...

    Code:
    void function (void)
    {
        /* I have no local variables, am I a function? */
    }

    Did you even READ this question?

    "True or false: Functions can have local variables."

    Um...
    Code:
    int main( void )
    {
        int OhMyGodIAmALocalVariable;
    }
    Likewise, you've never seen the classic 'hello world' program?

    Code:
    int main( void )
    {
        return printf( "Hello world!" );
    }
    There are no local variables.

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
