    I tend to pronounce things as they are spelled
    So yeah, "sin" and "cout"!

    i say "sin" but i say cout with a hard c, like "kout", i just thought "sout" sounded stupid. I've been trying to make myself say "c in" "c out" but they just aren't as fun!

    actually i don't think i've ever actually spoken either, but that's how i think them.

    I hardly pronounce them, but when I do it's like "see-in" and "see-out". The "see" is pronounced in Swedish, not English.

    In #include, the # is silent.

    Good thing too, it's hard to get the nuances right when saying #.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I say pound include/define/ifdef/undef/etc. just easier...

    and c-out/c-in...

    actually, i don't say any of them unless i'm helping somebody... that's why I started saying 'pound' include... because I used to help people in elementary programming classes...

    it's c-in and c-out, and print-ef.

    Oh, and hwnd is pronounced just like it looks
    Away.
