Telling someone “you need to setup an atexit handler that calls xo_finish” will be met with teeth gnashing and complaints (I’ve had to deal with a bunch of people who complain that FreeBSD is not Linux at $work; I don’t have any interest in fighting developers over stuff like this). > Yes, but, a typo in any change is likely to cause a problem. This is not > a problem unique to libxo. Yes, but there’s a big difference between a typo in !libxo with the meta language, and a typo in libxo. Typo in !libxo: typos visible, unless it was something silly like mis-spelling \n (which doesn’t seem to happen much); typo in libxo: xo_emit call is invalid (no output)/segfaults. Fortunately libxo seems to support __printflike :).
