Sample text

It’s a good idea to do this only when necessary for performance reasons, though, and only with performance-critical source files. Because it is possible to preprocess assert macros away, be careful that any expression you use with assert has no side effects. Specifically, you shouldn’t call functions inside assert expressions, assign variables, or use modifying operators such as ++. 2 Coding Defensively Suppose, for example, that you call a function, do_something, repeatedly in a loop. You should write this instead: for (i = 0; i < 100; ++i) { int status = do_something (); assert (status == 0); } Another thing to bear in mind is that you should not use assert to test for invalid user input.

Some options expect an argument immediately following. Many programs, for example, interpret the option --output foo to specify that output of the program should be placed in a file named foo. After the options, there may follow other command-line arguments, typically input files or input data. The --size option is synonymous with -s, so the same command could have been invoked as ls --size /. The GNU Coding Standards list the names of some commonly used command-line options. 3 Using getopt_long Parsing command-line options is a tedious chore.

By convention, environment variable names are spelled in all capital letters. You’re probably familiar with several common environment variables already. For instance: n n n n contains your username. contains the path to your home directory. PATH contains a colon-separated list of directories through which Linux searches for commands you invoke. DISPLAY contains the name and display number of the X Window server on which windows from graphical X Window programs will appear. USER HOME Your shell, like any other program, has an environment.
