Constant Pointers


Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.

Constant Pointers : Thomas Uebermeirer : thomas@uebermeier.de : 2000-11-06

Unmaintainable Code is a funny page, I watch it regularly since it appeared in slashdot.

One thing I saw: Under Naming #14: Deutch, Fran¸ais, Esperanto in German it is spelled Deutsch, or you can say dutch (which is spoken in the Netherlands).

Another idea (in C): put pointers on constants and change them … :)

const float Pi=3.141;
float *j;
[...]
j=π
*j=4.0;
