I'm almost one of them.
This incident happened a few years ago. Then somebody just sent me these links. I'll let the video and the links speak for themselves.

People I've never met still joke about this at school, but I had no idea this had gotten around the internet. smile-fix.gif

    As soon as I saw that code the part of my brain that writes C cried out in agony as it attempted to rip its own eyes out. "No!!!!!", it was saying, "That is not how we free nodes in a linked list! Oh my god infinite recursion! Oh the humanity!" I mean seriously, what kind of warped mind decides that its a good idea to free null? (of course, he'd have to be stupid enough to pass null in the first place for that code to even be encountered). My god his formating isn't even consistant...

    Ok... deep breath....

    The freeThisShnizzle was mildly amusing I suppose. But thanks to the horror of that code, I may never be able to write C again.

    I couldn't hear many of the student answers, but it seems to me that none of them picked up on all that. Hell, one woman thought it was illegal to call a function from within itself ffs.

    As one who has done it pictures of himself being shot in the face, I hate to break it to you but it is not hard to get onto german weblogs. Congrats on internet fame and fortune though.

    I actually think that freethisShnizzle is a good name for a function (and so did moultano, it seems). You know, when the teacher says that the name of the function is what causes the code to fail? I think he's lying!

    I agree, freeThisShnizzle is a perfectly valid function name and was definatly not why this code failed. I've certainly seen (and coded) functions with worse and less descriptive names then that. I mean, who hasn't written a DoStuff function at least once? And who hasn't written one that takes 5 parameters, all the smae type, named stuff0 - stuff4?

    Maybe Moultano can enlighten us as to why the proffessor thought that the function name was the important problem with the code?

    isn't that a matrix?
    (note lack of coding for 2 years makes me forget what little I knew)

    oh, and I say it is a good name!

    I got put into our cookie file (bash for the cs department) for having the tendancy to use names like god or theDevil for objects, eventualy it came down to an out pout from my code reading:
    god moves north, god is now at (3, 4), god is now ****. (AVickery's cs151 lab)

    note: we were creating things that wandered around an island, and if they didn't rest for long enugh they became upset and wouldn't move.

    The problem with the code is that it was infinitely recursive. That means the computer would be locked into a series of tasks over and over, causing it to freeze. An example of this would be the following 'coding':

    1: Add X + Y
    2: Add A + B
    3: Go back to step 1.


    Essentially, the computer would add X & Y, then A & B, add X & Y again, add A & B again, and again and again untill the power was cut. That was the real problem with the coding mentioned. However, the teacher just couldn't resist the urge to use that mistake to question the name of the function.

    Yeah, yeah, I think everyone except Skulkbait caught that. wink-fix.gif

    I still think freethisShnizzle is a great name for a function.

    the end.
