"Who are you ? How did you get in my house ?"

xkcd (funny geeky webcomic) cites Don Knuth on array indices.

  1. Funny, I was just talking to my students about indices. My view is that we humans count starting from 1, so if computers deal better with counters starting from zero, then let the compiler take care of the translation. I realize this is not always trivial, but neither is any of the other tasks performed by a modern compiler.
