Lots of people are very fond of C because you can write 'unreadable'
code and do some fancy/hackerish things like printing program's source
They do not know that this can be done in Pascal (and any other language) too.
Do FPC needs a hacker style programming contest in order to show that
one can write ugly code in Pascal ???
Anybody interested in fpc-hackers mailing list where people can
discuss non standard ways of doing things?
