One thing I’ve unfortunately neglected for a little while now on my blog was the RSS feed - mostly because I didn’t have a clue how to make Hugo do it as I’d like. There was a couple of issues: Only the summaries of my posts were fed via RSS - not the full contents. I do not do any sort of content tracking on my site because I don’t want to foist vaporware like Google Analytics on my readers, so it really doesn’t matter to me whether people read my content from the RSS feed or from the main site - that they read it is enough!
Jumping into cold water is always a shocking experience. Being able to calm yourself, acclimatise to the temperature of the water - before you attempt to swim is how you survive. A ton of people worldwide have just plunged into the icy water of working from home, and since I’ve been doing this for six years I have some advice from the good and the bad of what I learned over the time.
One thing that has always worried me with writing C samples in documentation for my single-header libraries is that you can’t be 100% sure that they will compile successfully. You can always extract them and run them, but you might change them and forget to re-test. Having this be automatic is so powerful. Rust has this feature built in to the ecosystem so that all code samples are testing automagically.
I’ve been working on my various C/C++ single header libraries some over the Christmas break, and while I already did an update on my work, I decided to leave json.h for its own post. C89 Support One requested thing over the years has been C89 support, and I was reluctant to do this mostly out of sheer laziness. I’d have to convert a bunch of comments over and remove my use of long long.
I’ve been working on my various C/C++ single header libraries some over the Christmas break, and I thought I’d just jot down the improvements I’ve made in a post. process.h -> subprocess.h I’ve had a long standing complaint that the name process.h conflicted with a Windows system header. I’ve decided (after a good three years of indecision mind you) to just rename the header and the entry points to subprocess.h instead.
