    I'm curious....why are you posting this? I read 2600 as well but don't feel the need to post "code crashing" selections from it. BTW, I have plently of code written over the years that will crash almost anything, of course it's not intentional [​IMG] ...

    Steven,
    Fair enough. When I something like this I always feel better with an explanation. When it has to do with an interest in the code I think that's fine, on the other hand if it's with the intention of bringing down muliple systems or something like that I get worried....sorry to be a stick in the mud about it.

    It's been a while since I have done C programming, what is b??? Backspace?

    So it looks like that code writes HUNGUP (6 chars) to stdout and backspaces 7 times. A backwards buffer-overflow, cool!
