A Python script that injects environment variables into the calling cmd.exe shell.

rem This is a hybrid batch and Python script. The batch (right here) invokes
rem the Python script and treats its standard output as a list of environment
rem variables to set in the current environment.
rem The -x argument causes the Python interpreter to ignore the first line.
rem The -S argument disables the implicit 'site' package import (speed go fast).

An attempt to reinvent `std::function' that ended up being about things I don't like about C++.
// Because it was possible to implement std::move and std::forward<T> as library
// functions, so that's what happened. Now this header is everywhere. This is
// 2,800 lines of kitchen sink for me.
#include <utility>
// C++ has half-decent pattern matching, but only on types. If only some of this
// energy could be thrown at language constructs like `switch'.
// Oh, right, and this relies on partial specialization, which only works on
// classes. So you get these pointless classes that contain a single typedef.

I would get behind this if I could just static_assert(size <= Size) in the placement operator new. Close but no cigar.

There's this handy flag on Win32 heap objects called HEAP_GENERATE_EXCEPTIONS, which causes the heap manager to raise a structured exception instead of returning null on a failed allocation. But the C runtime creates its heap behind the scenes and doesn't allow you access to it, and you can't add this flag after creation anyway. Unless you are t…
#include <malloc.h>
#include <windows.h>
static HANDLE FindCrtHeap()
// Pick a block that we know is in the CRT heap.
_HEAPINFO crtEntry = {};
if (_HEAPOK != _heapwalk(&crtEntry))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
