I bet this blog, while still being kept more-or-less in secret, has already managed to make some people angry. Here's another try.
This is a report from a code analysis from hell (or from N*). Suppose you pass a pointer to a buffer to some routine, which has to fill up the buffer. But, alas, you are not interested in the first 8 header bytes of the data. What do you do?
Here's what KY did: you allocate a buffer
p = new char[manyBytes], and pass p-8 to the routine.
