the realm of C 99% of the time
Dammit ... I always read that as "the realm of C99 % of the time" ... and keep thinking "this makes no sense!!!"
A different (arbitrary) percentage would've been nice. ("89%" probably wouldn't have helped me much, but.)
Hmmm ... and maybe I assume too much. FAIK, "99%" is not an arbitrary figure at all, but an accurately ascertained value (obtained using Python, no doubt).
