    Note that Linus’s comment was about code where the VLA would always be the same length for a given architecture, so a fixed size should have been computed at compile time.

      I’m totally going to read this carefully when I get some time. But meanwhile, just at a glance, the responsive layout with the columns is amazing! Readable and no space wasted! Why don’t all websites do this?

        Thanks! I spent a lot of time on the design.

        Some people don’t like scrolling up and down, but I can’t stand the ridiculously large margins on a wide screen monitor, and I like the look of an academic paper mixed with some hand-drawn elements.

        Your slideshow presentation was really interesting given it mixes concatenative and functional. I suggest submitting it next.

          Thanks. I guess I should update the presentation, since it was a year and a half ago, and then fill it in to make a full article.

            That sounds even better!

          I took a short break from PoprC to polish up a C library I’ve derived from that project that I call Startle.

          It has a lot of nice features that make it much easier to start a new C project, while staying lightweight and not requiring any heap allocation.

          I have also made an example project to which I’ve been adding bits of code to demonstrate usage of the library.

          I hope to get some time to fix some more test cases with PoprC so I can get closer to getting the library working again.
