[Note also that this is really the first non-trivial C program that
I ever wrote. Because of this, much of the code appears very
amateurish. For example, I tried very hard to avoid C constructs
that some authors strongly discourage, e.g., goto, continue,
break. Of course this made some of the code convoluted, e.g.,
contrast
int test = 1;
while (test)
{
function ();
if (-1 == some_function ())
test = 0;
if (test)
some_other_function ();
}
with:
while (1)
{
function ();
if (-1 == some_function ()) break;
some_other_function ();
}
I have since concluded that many text-book authors never actually
wrote anything non-trivial. Whenever I work on MOST, I try to make
some changes in an effort to clean it up. ]
