    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.

    You just don't get it do you.
    what is STFW is answered by STFW.

    Ever wondered why no one asks how to switch on their PC in these forums?
