SCO trotted out "examples" of copied code and immediately found itself with egg on its face.
- I wrote them [ctype.h] (and looking at the original ones, I'm a bit ashamed: the "toupper()" and "tolower()" macros are so horribly ugly that I wouldn't admit to writing them if it wasn't because somebody else claimed to have done so ;) ... So there is definitely a lot of proof that my ctype.h is original work.
I'd like to be a fly on the wall in Darl McBride's office right now. If there is any reality at all to SCO's source code claims, Darl should have smoke coming out of his ears, and be jumping up and down screaming for the head of the idiot who released these "examples".
It just seems beyond reason that SCO could once again be this careless. Didn't they learn anything from the first debacle of purloined code that wasn't? Are they truly this incompetent? Or is it all a scam as some of the more virulent SCO haters insist?
This just leaves me shaking my head in wonder.
Got something to add? Send me email.
