    P.S. hmm, sorry if something go wrong, that post have actually embedded quotes, but for some reason I didn't see them in the preview
    You can emulate functional data structures with structs, typedefs, unions, and macros - to some extent, but it's a shame the C developers can't see the value in tagged unions. Shouldn't be too hard, but they'd have to pair it with pattern matching and all these would eventually lead to a pile of crap. ML style language provide a lot better starting point for this kind of stuff. OCaml isn't that bad if you like C.
