|/* This bit of chicanery makes a unary function followed by|
a parenthesis into a function with one argument, highest precedence. */
-- Larry Wall in toke.c from the perl source code
|"... and don't ask me about the extraneous parenthesis. I bet some LISP|
programmer felt alone and decided to make it a bit more homey."
- Linus Torvalds
|Please use an explicit test - I know gcc suggest just an extra set of|
parenthesis, but I'm personally convinced that is just because some gcc
people have been damaged by too much LISP.
- Linus Torvalds discussing gcc requirements on linux-kernel
