Congratulations, yay! :)

(what'd you use it for?)

(today, I typed man 3 longjmp, and it felt really good :) )

Nothing even close to that hardcore. Just a mysterious sprintf format string in a Perl script. I Googled around for a little while, then realized, "Hey, wait a second...", grabbed the book, worked it out.

I learned C using K&R in a C.S. class at UIUC. In 1987 (read "first edition"). I still have it somewhere, though the pages have yellowed quite a bit. O~
