Title: Painfully Funny
Post by: Hooman on January 03, 2019, 11:11:46 AM
I just came across this little gem on Stack Overflow:
Why is this program erroneously rejected by three C++ compilers? (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5508110/why-is-this-program-erroneously-rejected-by-three-c-compilers?rq=1)

Checking the revision history, I found it was originally posted on April 1, 2011.

I didn't know that a .png file was an actually legitimate source file for compilation in C++.

Depends on the compiler.

You know, technically there's nothing in the standard against supporting PNG files, and using OCR on them. ;)

That's my point... and I believe the point brought up in the linked thread. :)
