C++ style comments by Herring (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Jan 29, 2007 at 04:33:40 AM EST
In no other instance in C or C++ is a lf/cr meaningful in any way (except as whitespace). I think. Insist on use of /* */ (do your worst, auto-format) to annoy the fuck out of people.

Who the hell uses a word-wrapping editor for code anyway? Are they insane?

In a string literal? by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Jan 29, 2007 at 04:52:22 AM EST
Or am I remembering wrong?

Or perhaps being a pedantist?

Problem with /* */ by squigs (2.00 / 0) #4 Mon Jan 29, 2007 at 06:35:51 AM EST
Comments are part of the preprocessorwhich uses lf/cr to terminate most expressions.  I rather wish it wouldn't since this makes macros rather more ugly than I'd like. 

It's one of the few parts of C notation that can't be nested (functions being the only other example I know).  Nested comments would often be useful.

macros by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Jan 29, 2007 at 06:43:53 AM EST
#define is another instance where lf/cr is meaningful.

I wonder if the editor is vi, which visually wraps code. Not that I've ever known anyone make that particular error with it.

Since when does Notepad highlight´? by BadDoggie (2.00 / 0) #6 Mon Jan 29, 2007 at 06:51:20 AM EST
Is that something new in Vista?

No one actually started looking into the application code as the possible source of the error until a couple weeks ago, and the guys who did it are command line freaks. None of that girly-man gooey shit.

woof.

OMG WE'RE FUCKED! -- duxup ?
