    Mistake in Tutorial

    Ok, so there's been a thread on the CBoard, namely :

    instances of globally declared structures unavailable from within main() function

    Which brought a mistake in one of the tutorials to my attention. I checked it out on the site, and there is indeed something wrong. Who am I supposed to contact to correct this ?

    Hammer is the FAQ maintainer at the moment.
    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.

    PM I guess - though I haven't seen him post much recently.
    Failing that, Kermi3 could probably fix it as well.

    I can edit the FAQ, but tutorials are out of my jurisdiction. Any changes need to be sent to Alex.

    Ok, I'll PM both Kermi and Hammer.

    Neither of which are Alex. PM webmaster. Hammer hasn't been around in ages, and I'm not sure he had access to the tutorials anyway. kermi3 probably defers to Alex for changes to the tutorials.
