    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%.

    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
