Example text

The code we use sort of reads like a grammar, but becomes much more messy with added complexity. Due to this, taking this approach isn't always an easy task. A whole set of helper functions that build on simple constructs to make frequent tasks easy are all documented on the mpc repository. This is a good approach for complicated languages, as it allows for finegrained control, but won't be required for our needs. Natural Grammars lets us write grammars in a more natural form too. Rather than using C functions that look less like a grammar, we can specify the whole thing in one long string.

This makes them appear far more monstrous than they are. Luckily for us, we have a couple ideal use-cases, both of which are extremely typical in C, and will likely end up being how you use pointers 90% of the time. The reason we need pointers in C is because of how function calling works. When you call a function in C the arguments are always passed by value. This means a copy of them is passed to the function you call. This is true for int , long , char , and user-defined struct types such as lval .

Plumbing • Harder than you think To be able to progress and get code to work under these conditions is a great skill in programming, and if you've made it this far it shows you have it. In programming we call this plumbing. Roughly speaking this is following instructions to try to tie together a bunch of libraries or components, without fully understanding how they work internally. It requires faith and intuition. Faith is required to believe that if the stars align, and every incantation is correctly performed for this magical machine, the right thing will really happen.
