@GlenH7 Understood.

@GlenH7 Your VTC is confusing. Wouldn't the answer simply be that there is no term. I don't see how that is any more opinion-based than any other questions under the [terminology] tag where terms happen to have generally-accepted definitions.

comment Is there a benefit to unit testing code whose sole purpose is to generate non-human-readable code in another language?
Indeed it looks that way.

comment Does C# give you “less rope to hang yourself” than C++?
@Oded Great! That's probably a good way to make the best of this.

comment Does C# give you “less rope to hang yourself” than C++?
@Oded Being a n00b I almost deleted my question because of your comments. It was only happenstance that I did not -- I was interrupted, then took Sunday off. By Monday there were over 500 views, 7 answers, lots of up votes and 2 favorites. I humbly submit that immediately commenting new questions with a hypertechnical meta reason that it shouldn't have been asked actually damages the community more than it helps. If the question had been sitting for days or even hours it might have been more appropriate, but the above comments happened within minutes of the original post.

comment Why were short, int, and long invented in C?
In embedded systems I've seen a fairly common convention to typedef long, short, and int to the form int16_t and defining constants like MAX_INT16 so that you have a hope of targeting multiple processors from the same code base. Once you do that, you can ignore the ambiguity of short, int and long.

@Oded Are you referring to the character-limited headline question? Or my 3+ more precise questions in the body of my post?
