sunnycoder-

Don't actually need the "> 0" since printf returns an integral value.
Cool trivia.

Be a fun interview question: In standard C (or standard C++) write the "Hello, World!" program without using a semicolon.

Or: Your computer's semicolon key is non-operative and you've been asked to demonstrate writing the ubiquitous "Helllo, World!" program in C/C++ for the CEO's young daughter. Do what you can to keep your job; no pressure.
