Re: George's buffer stuff

I prefer the C version, but that is mostly because
1) i don't really know C++ (first couple attempts were miserable failures)
2) I don't trust g++ enough yet, and face it, that is the default compilier
since UNIX companies started making people buy cc.
3) I already have the C version installed, what a bear that was to add by hand.
P.S. if this message gets through unmolested, sorry for the blank messages,
ccmail and compuserve sucks big time.

Do people prefer a C or C++ version of that code?

C advantage: cleaner interface, easier to understand
  disadvantage: slower, doesn't allow transparent snprintf and immediate
        detection (and prevention) of overruns.

C++, reverse those above.
