They also collate differently, which may in some cases be very important. C uses byte value order, en_US will put á before b etc.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Try taking a scheduled minibus through the countryside. Or, actually don't try it. I've been on a couple and I've never been as scared for my life. They seemed to think the middle lane divider is a marker for where to drive... any oncoming traffic you just flash the lights to make them move out of the way.

That's not enough by far. It's very easy for the program to contain a wine style fake dll, which can call any libc functions it wishes (e.g. system, posix_spawn, etc.). Wine does not try to protect the windows programs from accessing the system.
This is interesting... wanted to mod it but no points, so guess I have to reply.
I also find C fun to code, and good for many tasks, including string handling which some seem to use as argument to not use it. I'm trying to learn C++ now but it's quite complicated. C is a much simpler language, and you usually spend less time thinking about how to solve the problem than actually writing the code. Maybe if I code enough C++ it'll be the same, but that feels like far far of right now.
Not that it's a bad idea to design first and write later. It's just not as fun, like you mentioned.
It's been on slashdot before, probably for other states, can't really remember. Frankly, as a European (Sweden to be exact), I'm still surprised you don't have taxes on internet purchases. Any online US retailer exporting to EU does have to add VAT to those transactions (which are then sent off the to EU state).
Well, I didn't check, but if BusyBox is using GPL 3 then it requires that Sony provides the tools or at least instructions to let you install the software on the device along with the source itself. That's the whole tivoization thing and might be what they're trying to avoid.
Maybe you can do without mouse, but once you start using the visual mode, which vi lacks, you'll never go back.
Well, it might work, if they're fast. But you're assuming the debt is in US dollars, which it probably isn't (at least not all of it).
They also announced that they're shutting down codesearch. That's much bigger news as far as I'm concerned. Sad to see a great tool disappear.
Damn, not sure how I forgot the worst part of all. dtruss requires root to be run, so you usually have to do some convoluted double sudo to run a program the same way as without it.
As long as the leave strace in place. Apple replaced ktrace with dtrace and I've been hating it ever since.
It's not that dtrace is bad, it's just that they have different purposes, and dtruss has several problems ktrace/strace does not:
- It's asynchronous. Meaning it won't output write(1, "foo\n", 4); next to the actual output of foo.
- Sometimes stuff gets out of order, not sure why.
- It'll only output pointer addresses, e.g. bind(3, 0x12345678,
Ok, rant over.
That's not different from moving a VM from one host to another, the router needs to change its ARP table in that case as well. There's no reason the IP couldn't be app bound instead of machine bound, if you're willing to assign one IP per app (IPv6 would help). But we're lacking the tools to migrate an IP from one host to another, including the TCP sessions. That's a software problem though, and could be implemented if there's demand for it.
