C++ likes URLs

Posted on:June 22 2009

One of the most useless thing I learned today: You can write URLs directly into C++ source, like
void foobar(){   http://www.irrlicht3d.org
int k = baz();}
The http: is recognized as a label and the // + following characters is simply a comment.
Senseless but cool :)

Yay! Code obfuscation: "goto http"

That's so funny... I can see programmers looking at that code and wondering what the hell it does. Without knowing why it was there (stupid parlor trick) I'd be too nervous to change it.... I'd be worried about breaking it!

Yes, it works... looks funny too...

int main( void )
{
int i = 1;

http://www.domain.tld

if ( i++ < 5 )
goto http;//www.domain.tld
else
goto ftp;//ftp.domain.tld

ftp://ftp.domain.tld

return 0;
}
