That's absolutely correct:
Most of my q&d C code is C(++), basically plain C with a few of the more
useful syntax cleanups from C++, i.e. like the ability to declare
variables upon first use, and single-line comments etc.
For a production program I would definitely clean it up. :-)

So do I, as I said I'll write it if I have to.
