    What are you talking about. We were both discussing density, and we were both talking about a terminal (or at least didn't exclude it).

    Perhaps you think a terminal can't return EOF? Yet that's a common occurrence. I didn't say those things you tried to put in my mouth cause I didn't mean those things.

    A program that fails to handle a common occurrence by going into an infinite loop is bad, and a style that makes this kind of error easy and hard to notice is not that great. Simple as that.
