Re: add a proper string type in C

Only char arrays."

which is JUST FINE and MORE FLEXIBLE, especially when you're not LAZY and/or spoiled by Java or BASIC.

mastering strings in C/C++ is *SIMPLE*. I've been doing it for YEARS. DECADES even. More than TWO decades.

I suppose this means we need more COMPETENT programmers in the world...

maybe it should be like CW for HAM operators. Code in C only until you're competent in it.
