in thread Why this simple code doesn't work?

It's funny that you first totally ignored the, what you call, "re-use" of a keyword, and only when pointed out that the "saving of a keystroke" actually breaks you come with "yeah, but you shouldn't reuse a keyword".

It's ever funnier that you first make a big deal about prototypes, and that you shouldn't use them, and then keep saying that the use of & circumvents them.

And that while none of them contributed a single iota to solving the problem the OP had.

    It pleases me a lot that my funny remarks brought a smile upon your face! :)


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
