cincodenada / logsb
Created Nov 2, 2013
A quick alias in irssi to save the scrollback log to a file. I recently turned on logging (/set autolog ON), and wanted to save what scrollback I'd kept as well. After some reading up, this should add the /logsb command, which stores logs for the current channel in the same place as the default logging, in files tagged .scrollback.log. The alias…

A bit of background on compilers exploiting signed overflow
View gist:e0f055bfb74e3d5f0af20690759de5a7
Why do compilers even bother with exploiting undefinedness signed overflow? And what are those
mysterious cases where it helps?
A lot of people (myself included) are against transforms that aggressively exploit undefined behavior, but
I think it's useful to know what compiler writers are accomplishing by this.
TL;DR: C doesn't work very well if int!=register width, but (for backwards compat) int is 32-bit on all
major 64-bit targets, and this causes quite hairy problems for code generation and optimization in some
fairly common cases. The signed overflow UB exploitation is an attempt to work around this.
