Had to verify. And yes. Kernighan and Ritchie really did this. TIL :)
@jwildeboer Ah darn, Kernighan didn't do it in "The Go Programming Language". I guess I'll pencil it in.
A classic book, I have it somewhere I'm pretty sure. I had two copies, but I think my ex stole one.
@jwildeboer just now learning about recursion using python and I got to say Im a bit lost on how to use it in any given situation.
I mightve actually "got" this joke. Maybe.
Bit late but now I was finally able to check my old copy, and yes, I have the same edition as you have. :)
@jwildeboer Thanks for the tip. I had to check but it was lost on the French translation (Second edition). I'm glad I got the English version of the book as well.
@jwildeboer Sadly, the Dutch translator or their editor were a bit humorless. The joke was not in the translation. 😞
