    O_o

    That's simply not true; my own beard was two feet long only about a year back and I wasn't made a senior member. I have spectacles too!

    By the way, what exactly is a senior member?

    C programmers never retire! They just obfuscate more often.

    Senior members should:
    • Have participated in at least 1000 religous debates on the General Discussions board
    • Have participated in at least 1000 political debates on the General Discussions board
    • Angered or offended at least 500 people without even knowing it by simply answering questions
    • Memorized all of the assignments that are used in various college courses IE: Averaging grades, theatre seating, creating a phonebook, drawing asterisk triangles, etc.
    • Know at least 20 different solutions to said assignments b/c various professors do not allow the use of language constructs that are designed to solve said problems
    • Know or been exposed to at least 250 people who have been banned
    • Encountered at least 1000 advertisements that are against the forum guidelines ranging from cell-phones to pharmaceutical pills
    • Be able to read extremely obfuscated and poorly formatted C, C++, Haskell, Lua, Java, various assembly languages, VB, C#, and mixtures of these languages in the same code snippets
    • Be able to read code that has not had code tags placed around it and be ready to answer any and all questions related to it
    • Be able to read minds and feel the intentions of a post even if they are not clearly explained
    • Be able to solve all programming problems whatever they may be
    • Understand all the language differences between any other language and C/C++ so they can clearly debate these extremely important points in General Discussions threads
    • Be able to read and comprehend threads in which the original poster does not know how to form a coherent sentence or does not know where the period or shift key is on the keyboard.


    The list goes on and on....

    You left out the most important requirement, VirtualAce: "proficient at walking on water"
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.

    Nb: Anyone who has fulfilled the first two criteria without answering any questions in a Programming board may waive the remaining criteria.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
