@sir I'm using neomutt, does that count?

@Wolf480pl Well, I just turn off my computer quite often (Mostly because I use laptop and often move around. In work I sometimes find some forgotten terminators with some ssh or mysql clients running :p)

@HalfTough Like in

n = 10;
while (n --> 0) {
...
}

@HalfTough My favourite c operator is converge operator "-->".

@phryk Have You ever heard about ctags (:help tags)?

@pea Smalltalk (and particularly it's implementation - Dolphin) is extremely _funny_ thing. It's enough to say that you have combined IDE and runtime environment (so that you could loose your changes when program crashes). And you have to find small dolphin in a big one before using that environment (and there is neat wave sound effect during startup)...

@codesections If You're interested give it a try, You can always ask me, I'll do my best to solve any problems.

@codesections Sorry for not responding, Ive been a bit busy recently. I thing gentoo is a very well made system (but I must admit I've never been really advanced user). It's not much more complicated than arch (I thing the biggest difference in installation procedure is lack of a script similar to arch-chroot). It requires a little more maintenance work (to keep you USE flags and unmasked versions clean), and sometimes it may be hard to upgrade something (when different versions don't want to cooperate), but it gives little more flexibility (I don't think that USE flags or custom compilation flags optimize a lot, but they give a nice feel ;p and e.g. allow you to avoid unnecessary dependencies). Compared to arch there aren't many differences: installation time (as you compile everything it can take a quite long time, my last chromium build took ~8 hours (on 4C/8T i7 cpu) - it's the main reason I've decided to try something else), possibility of mix versions and freedom to choose init system.

Are there any slackware users here? I'm curious if someone here is it as a desktop distribution. And, if someone is actually using it, how do You manage packages (only 'official' repo? slackbuilds? custom scripts?). Asking as a long-term gentoo user who wanted to try something else (e.g. with binary packages - slackware was excellent choice xd).

@Michcioperz @robots @redsPL @RafiX ^ code is more portable, etc... (you don't have bunch of for each operating system, which (I'm not 100% sure) probably are compiler specific)).

2018/07/08 2:30:46 PM UTC

@robots @redsPL @RafiX I'm not saying that we shouldn't take care of resources (contrary, I think it's clean and makes code easier to maintain / refactor). What I'm saying that there shouldn't by any difference (when it comes to things like 'closing fds') between manually calling exit and returning from main function. And even C standard (as I've just checked) says so ;p

2018/07/08 1:04:55 PM UTC

@robots @RafiX @redsPL It does add a exit/~ syscall at the end (you can check it by yourself e.g. by running simple program under strace). And IMO it's quite reasonable to expect compiler to end program in a sensible way.

By the way, exit is a syscall which simply terminates a program, resource cleanup is something that OS does after any way of termination (not handled signal signal, exit(0), ...).

2018/07/08 12:54:56 PM UTC

@robots @redsPL @RafiX Doesn't compiler add `exit()` and others things like that after main function (in __libc_start_main or sth).
