( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Not sure where to put this as it's not obfuscated, but this is my first attempt at writing a program that parses in two different languages. Specifically, this Perl program compiles as C code under Cygwin with:

gcc hel2.c -o hel2 -Wall -ansi

I'm embarrassed by all of the cheap preprocessor instructions in there. It seems like a cop-out.

#include <stdio.h> #ifdef _FSTDIO #define $i i #define sub #define main int i; int main sub main() { #else sub main(); #endif for ($i=0;$i<5;$i++) { printf("Just another Perl hacker,\n"); } return(0); } #ifndef _FSTDIO main(); #endif

Okay, not very good. Shoot me :) Since I did specify -ansi on the command line of the C compiler, I expect that this will work on any C compiler.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
