"I've been writing C for quite some time, but I never followed good conventions I'm afraid, and I never payed much attention to the optimization tricks of the higher C programmers. Sure, I use const when I can, I use the pointer methods for manual string copying, I even use register for all the good that does with modern compilers, but now, I'm trying to write a C-string handling library for personal use, but I need speed, and I really don't want to use inline ASM. So, I am wondering, what would other Soylenters do to write efficient, pure, standards-compliant C?"

Hire someone. Then, last time I wrote in c was back in college. Hell, back then we wrote c on punch cards, fed it into the univac machine where it spit out assembler cards that we then fed to the multivac to solve life's questions. Good times. Kid's got it easy these days.

Univac couldn't handle C code.
