comment What does “Place Warranty” mean?
@gnat This question isn't meaningless without the external link. I would hope the viewer would be able to read "Can" vs "Cannot" vs "Must". I understand why links are sketchy.

For those voting "Unclear what I'm asking", perhaps looking at the website I am referring to would help. The downvotes are unnecessary.

The most I've heard it used is in regards to generated pieces of code or binaries.

comment Why aren't `void *`'s implicitly cast in C++?
C is essentially one step above machine code. I can pardon C for things like this.

comment Should I use parentheses in logical statements even where not necessary?
Interestingly enough, the proof is in the pudding; your example's first (unparenthesized) example was a headache; the second was much clearer.

Managed code doesn't necessarily entail the use of a garbage collector.

comment Why are self-hosting compilers considered a rite of passage for new languages?
I feel like a (native) language is a language when it can compile itself and a linux kernel could be ported to it (since it encompasses most/all of the tasks necessary for most modern-day OS's to function).

@arnaud And the fact that a Javascript compiler would require a Javascript environment, which can't be written in Javascript because Javascript requires a Javascript environment, <repeat paradoxically>, because a Javascript environment isn't provided by the operating system (and if was, it wouldn't be written in Javascript).

comment What do you wish language designers paid attention to?

One type of loop would make flow of code obscure. For instance, how would a do..while loop look if there was one type of loop that had the evaluation at the top? It wouldn't look like a do..while loop at all.
