comment Are there are any platforms where pointers to different types have different sizes?
I believe the original statement is true, but only for value pointers, and not function pointers!

comment Markdown handles inline bold text (within a word) incorrectly
@DavidGiven: Yeah, I'm aware of that now, but it's certainly not universally accepted that acronyms don't refer to initialisms. Traditionally, the term acronym was used by most to refer to both strict acronyms (as many would call them now) and initialisms... it's a point of contention among modern linguists, I've learnt.

comment Which country traces its roots back to the oldest civilization?
@Anixx: True, I probably should have included them, although it must be said they didn't leave very much of a written record as far as I know. They can be dated from round about the dawn of the Mycenaean Greek culture (though not as early as the Minoans of course).

comment Sell me on const correctness
Your points are very good ones. In short, no, the problems have always outweighed the small benefits, in my experience.

comment Sell me on const correctness
This is completely wrong in my experience. Nested point types creates the biggest headache for this sort of thing, where you can have multiple const-quantifiers in a single type.
