C Hacker in Paradise

To the tune of “Cheeseburger in Paradise” by Jimmy Buffett

Tried to amend my low-level habits
started learning Ada last fall
Writing tasks with conditional rendez-vous calls
Raising lots’a exceptions and handling them all
But at night I had these wonderful dreams
some kind of sensuous treat
Not of subtypes or generics or packages
but of function pointers and binary trees

 

( I was a…)
C hacker in paradise
putting my flags in an integer slice
Using K&R to be more precise
I’m just a C hacker in paradise

 

Heard about some of our managers
they want to do everything with a tool
Classes you browse by clicking with the mouse
Well it reminds me of some stuff I saw in primary school!
But I am not so easy to break;
When I’m at work I keep fighting back
Not with methods, drag-and-drop or a Hypercard stack
But with that miracle language in which I hack!

 

C hacker in paradise
writing code that’s already optimized
putting my flags in an integer slice
I’m just a C hacker in paradise

 

I write all my functions with recursion
using implicit pointer conversion
Back with a longjmp and then a goto
Oh, good God almighty which way should I go

 

to be a
C hacker in paradise
Making all operations bitwise
Writing right onto the raw device
Yes, I’m a
C hacker in paradise
I’ll be a
C hacker in paradise
I’m just a
C hacker in paradise

I write all …

C hacker in paradise ….
