Although ++ and -- were convenient for code writers, they did lead to
some "it depends" implementation details WRT function calls. I assume
that ANSI C has straightened that all out, but I still avoid that type
of thing by habit.
Digressing a bit, I recall talking with a fellow from Xerox on Coyote
Hill Rd. (not Xerox PARC) back in the early 80s and being surprised that
he said they coded in B. Was this the same B developed on the PDP-7?
Or was it some other beast?
