if(a=1) { ...} /* launch nuclear weapons */

when I meant

if(a==1) {.. } /* launch nuclear weapons */

It's laughable how many windows filesystem kernel API can't be used at various interrupt levels solely because they require use of code table for operating on filenames in a case insensitive way.

I'm sure MS regret case insensitive file systems.

And we wonder: if E folds to e, does ê map to e, and if so, when?

The fact is, they are different, case is meaningful, so enjoy it and make it mean something.
