Speak for yourself. The only C programming I do anymore is for
microprocessors which don't run Python, usually Arduino class
machines. It's not that I lack the skill -- I've written thousands of
lines of assembly language and thousands of lines of C, but ahhh, I
repeat myself. It's that I'm tired of having my code go off in the
weeds, or write into arrays it shouldn't be, or fergawshsakes' not
having a hash as a first-class entity.
