[The Elements of Programming Style it ain't, but it has a certain
 panache anyway... -psl]

Just wanted to check out that you gnarly dudes are using the latest and 
greatest software technology fer yer rad code to make it easy for the dudes 
who have to read it.  The hip new way to write readable C code involves the use
of a few simple defines.

#define like		{
#define man		;}
#define an		;
#define SayBro		/*
#define CheckItOut	*/

SayBro like, this is some rad shit, so CheckItOut

    a = b
    c = d

SayBro, like who needs help from them compiler choads anyway?
THIS is the way to write CLEAR code.  I mean really!  CheckItOut

like SayBro this is ShellSort straight out of the white book, but in
a readable form.

CheckItOut man

#define YoDude		for(
#define OK		)
#define is		=
#define AND		&&
#define as
#define Do
#define long
#define some
#define make
#define shit
#define FAROUT

shell( v, n )  SayBro sort v[ 0 ]...v[ n - 1 ] into increasing order CheckItOut
int v[], n;

like int gap, i, j, temp;

YoDude gap is n/2 an as long as gap > 0 Do some shit an make gap /=2 OK
   YoDude i is gap an as long as i < n Do some shit an make i++ OK
        YoDude j is i - gap an as long as j >= 0 AND v[ j ] > v[ j + gap ] Do
some shit an make j -= gap OK
                temp is v[ j ]    an
               	v[ j ] is v[ j + gap ]	an
                v[ j + gap ] is temp
