    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I have been using csh. Don't really have a preference except that I've gotten used to csh. The redirect error output thing is a good reason to switch. Probably wont. whatever.
