Evaluation order[edit]

The last paragraph 'Evaluation order and Lazy evaluation' is almost completely wrong! Its author should read comp.lang.c FAQ list section 3, especially answer to question 3.5. Constructions like a != NULL && func(a++) do NOT invoke undefined behaviour. The writer is confusing C's short circuit evaluation to lazy evaluation which is a completely different thing. --193.143.83.252 17:36, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Agree completely. That section was completely incorrect. I tried to fix it. Kevin Saff 14:16, 7 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Your version is much better than the original! I just added one sequence point to the list. 193.143.83.252

Standard library != C Syntax[edit]

The standard library (for which none of the header file names have been provided I might add) has nothing to do with the syntax of C. C can be used with other libraries or none at all; its syntax is independent of them. The translation of command-line arguments is the job of the linker and again has nothing to do with C syntax.

And then I find myself guilty of the same offense, so take what I said with a grain of salt.—Kbolino 05:41, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)

Function pointer example - why include parameters for command line parsing with no command line parsing needed?[edit]

This seems like a small pet peeve, but why include the arguments for command line argument parsing (int argc, char* args[]) in the main function of an example, like the function pointer example, where the said example doesn't use them? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Travelsonic (talkcontribs) 20:18, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
