The Joy of C

I don’t like C. I know why it’s good and why it’s important to know. I took the class in college. I’m just saying it’s not fun.

Here’s my college C textbook. Note the sad face in the middle. And I think that’s the word “skipping” scrawled in the appropriate place in Sharpie.

Like anyone new to programming at that level, pointers drove me nuts for a semester. I get them now, but I also haven’t had to use a pointer to a pointer since college. This makes me happy.
