20140809 - Strict Aliasing
Strict aliasing from a different perspective.
for the most part at home I've moved on from C to my own language
which is similar to an assembler
running from a language similar to Color Forth.
So my bias is more towards performance and minimalism.
When working in C, outside of work, I adopted labeling all pointers as either "restrict" or "volatile" (using the defines below to keep syntax tight). If needed reuse of a value read from a volatile pointer, it is read into a local variable. When working this way, strict aliasing makes no difference.
#define R_ restrict
#define V_ volatile
