FreeBSD "For the past several years we've been working towards migrating from GCC to Clang/LLVM as our default compiler. We intend to ship FreeBSD 10.0 with Clang as the default compiler on i386 and amd64 platforms. To this end, we will make WITH_CLANG_IS_CC the default on i386 and amd64 platforms on November 4th."

RE[5]: C++

Member since:

If I may remind you, I plainly stated that there is no risk of buffer overflows if you follow correct practices. At no point in time did I encourage unsafe practices. I spelled out for you exactly what must be done. And even with that in mind, it is not only simpler to do it my way but it also produces easier to read and understand code.

You've obviously found poor references for irony. There's simply no expectation that a C project would not be compiled with a compiler written in C++. Thus there cannot be any irony when it happens (and it happens all the time, further removing it from the realm of irony.)

Similarly, my participation is not ironic because there's no basis to expect that I wouldn't participate in correcting a misuse of an overly misused word.
