Floating Ambiguity



  • Just a short snippet that made me chuckle as I was rummaging through MS Platform SDK's 'float.h' to steal some defines:-

     

    #define EM_AMBIGUIOUS           _EM_AMBIGUOUS  /* for backwards
    compatibility old spelling */
    #define EM_AMBIGUOUS           
    _EM_AMBIGUOUS

  • I think it's also hilarious that the word with alternate spellings is "ambiguous." On the other hand, we wouldn't tolerate any old spelling of "strict" for example...
