    This is only false if you decide to either a) write your own compiler, or b) use a "non-standard", so to speak, compiler that use some other kind of entry point. In essence, they're both the same...

    Just because the word "acrobatic" is spelled a specific way according to most dictionaries it doesn't mean I can't spell it however I please, now does it? Although if I choose to spell it in any other way than according to the standard, people might not understand what I mean.
    Same thing applies here.

    I'm actually quiet amused at the fact this thread is on its 16th post.
    I guess the OP got more than he bargained for. Nice to now though we finished just as we started
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
