Sometimes, it's brilliant like Morris Dovey's unsigned division routine.
But more often it's something that should should earn automatic, possibly life-time Tea Party membership and I can't think of anything like an appropriate, helpful, reply. I could say more but just thinking about it... no, uh-uh, it's just too much and not in a good way at all.
It's the effing syntax!
You know, languages that are readable!
while( *outstr++ = *instr++);

Code: [Select]while( *outstr++ = *instr++);
mov (R3)+ (R4)+bne LABEL

babble is a translator from a pseudo-assembly language into a subset of C suitable for execution on Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine. Or rather, the #defines in babble are that translator. The rest of babble is a babble program.
Code: [Select]while( *outstr++ = *instr++);I'm sorry but if this is an example of hard to read let alone unreadable then you've got a lot of learning to go yet.Of course if you have the library included then memset() might look easier to read but not actually be better.You don't have to be fantastic at C to code in C but when you come to an expression that confuses you, treat is as an opportunity to learn. Worst case, it's buggy in fewer lines than usual.
