I knew Microsoft hates the C standards, but they claimed to like the C++ ones...
Today I discovered their hate extends even to the C parts of the C++ standard.
Take a look at this page: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/tcxf1dw6.aspx
It says "The
tlength prefixes are not supported."
This page is specific to Visual Studio 2015, and even after fifteen fucking years (or if we're generous, five), they don't support size specifiers that were introduced in 1999 and were added to C++ in 2011. Someone ought to remind them that <cstdio> is still part of the C++ standard they claim to want to abide by.
