I recently interviewed for a position that included software development, and about the third person who interviewed me, a "younger guy" (20's??), grabbed a notepade and scribbled the following:
'char * url[10];'
And then asked me if I knew what it meant! Did he really think I was interviewing for a position that required programming ability in C/C++ and not be able to recognize a declaration for an array of char pointers? Go figure...
