asciilifeform: ( fwiw the posted prototype has selectable endianism, albeit via an 'ifdefism' . thus far only tested with 'bigendian' kernel + userland tho. )
asciilifeform: it aint 'ifdefism' if you dun have two incompatible items which purport to inhabit the same vtree.
mircea_popescu: so THIS is your idea, "ifdefism by hand only" ?
mircea_popescu: don't tell me your idea is "ifdefism only acceptable if done by hand"

asciilifeform: the infestation is deep enuff that you quite obv could not make above example actually build reliably on any extant unix. the entire notion of 'portability' as pictured by unixtards (i.e. powered by #ifdefism) precludes it.

asciilifeform: in that it prevents the combinatorial clusterfucks that ifdefism causes
asciilifeform: ada deliberately does not offer equiv of #ifdef, because ifdefism is retarded. so you're left with this method, afaik.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: the way i understand 'v branching as civilized replacement for #ifdefism', the branches unavoidably gotta get reground whenever the whole tree is considered stable (i.e. no further changes likely to trunk)
asciilifeform: ( recall #ifdefism thread )
asciilifeform: it's exactly 'ifdefism'
