The curious case of the switch statement / fuzzy notepad edit / delete

The history of "switch" in Algol/BCPL languages. Ignores pattern-matching in functional languages, so the inclusion of Rust here is a bit incongruous.

C with bounds checking. Very C++-ish; I was hoping they'd done something smarter.

Argh! They end up with a fairly weird, but definitely standards-compliant, machine model -- this would be a good compliance-testing tool.

include-what-you-use - A tool for use with clang to analyze #includes in C and C++ source files edit / delete

This is a tool I've wanted for a while (owing to C/C++'s lack of a 1970s-standard module system): check that C/C++ files have the correct set of #includes.

rswier/c4 edit / delete

A little self-hosting C subset interpreter. Very neat! Compare this with Diomidis Spinellis' little self-hosting C bytecode compiler in the IOCCC a while back...
