About the Author
Richard Heathfield is a software developer for (and owner of) Eton Computer Systems Ltd. Having written code for several insurance companies, a health authority, a bank, and an airline, he is beginning to wonder if he'll ever find a client using C++ Builder. He currently lives near Potterspury, Northamptonshire (in the UK) with his wife, three wonderful children, network of five PCs, and more C compilers than he knows what to do with. He stopped voiding main() shortly beforebecoming a regular contributor to comp.lang.c, a fact for which he is eternally grateful. He hosts and maintains comp.lang.c's Answers To K&R Exercises site. He spends far too much time in Yahoo! Chat, rejoicing in the 'nick' of C_Dreamer, and would like to use this opportunity to say 'hi' to everyone in the Programming room there. His current interests are TCP/IP programming, automated C code generation, C99, and coffee. When he's not programming or chatting about programming or writing about programming (or drinking coffee), he plays keyboards and electric guitar, far too loudly.
