    unsurprisingly, you didn't understand it correctly. it has no similarities with revoke, it's similar to a loop of close calls

    It's pretty hard to believe that guy is a professor too. You sure he's not the janitor?
    So, you are younger? Because middle-aged folks generally don't get so emotional as to go personal so quick. Unless they suffer some personality disorder.

    Make a quick net search, he has used same nick over a decade in various forums. I knew it came up familiar for me. You see he has been involved with C, C#,C++, Ada..

    professors can be very bad at their jobs too.

    tl;dr you're right and kpedersen is yet another fake expert.
    AFAIK kpedersen is teacher in some university, teaching computer science and/or programming. Probably done coding longer than you with your 38-39 years of life (Assuming 82 in your username is showing your year of birth).

    not sure about freebsd, but linux certainly has O_CLOEXEC and you should use it instead of hacks which will break things which pass descriptors intentonally

    Have you ever had to write netlink code? Without an existing library? I have. Because we wanted a library written in native Go code. It was a pretty horrific experience. The connection tracking devs should probably be given a good talking to about writing documentation instead of saying "Use the library." Which is also lacking in documentation.
