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.

exports.handler = function(event, context) {
var proc = spawn('./test', [ JSON.stringify(event) ], { stdio: 'inherit' });
proc.on('close', function(code){
if(code !== 0) {
return context.done(new Error("Process exited with non-zero status code"));

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…
