    Your program gets a could of warnings when compiling:


    help.c:7:5: warning: conflicting types for built-in function ‘strlen’ [enabled by default]
    help.c: In function ‘main’:
    help.c:56:5: warning: format ‘%s’ expects argument of type ‘char *’, but argument 2 has type ‘char (*)[50]’ [-Wformat]

    NOTE - my line numbers may don't quite align with yours.

    However, that second warning is the interesting one.

    In C and C++, arrays are basically pointers to a memory location, so what you are really doing with &s is giving it a pointer to an array, or a pointer to a pointer, which will lead to incorrect behavior.

    Haha, and here I am trying to go LMC++.

    I personally don't see PHP going anywhere any time soon. People have been saying that Ruby, and Python (and Perl) would kill it for web development for years, and yet it is still around. It will remain around for quite some time into the future too.

    Also my opinion, but I don't currently see node as a feasible alternative. It is too young. Once it gets vetted a bit, maybe I will look at it, but it is still very new. Who knows, maybe node will go out of style and people will just drop it (I doubt it, but the future isn't something I see).

    Sad that ubuntu 12.04/ bash doesn't have a way to do lazy regex string replacement. I have a string with escape sequences and am trying to determine the printed length of it so I can move the cursor to the appropriate offset to align it with the right of the terminal. Sadly, everything I have found counts at least some of those escaped sequences....

    I would love to just be able to do:
    variable="\[\033[38;2;123m\]Some string\[\033[0m\]"

    But bash doesn't support it... T_T

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
