Just my curiosity, I've always been intersted in such question: are devs
still writing extensions in C, I mean type in C code? Aren't they using
some translator or IDE which at lest hides the brackets and semicolons?
I personally don't have problems with understanding low-level
concepts of programming, but I find it pretty hard to see
through the mangroves of brackets, asterisks and Co.
