A realization since programming in rust related to C: why on earth is -Wmaybe-uninitialized a warning? That shit should be a compile error you cannot turn off, because your code is probably broken


Honestly every single time I've ever thought I was smarter then -Wmaybe-uninitialized, it turned out I was definitely not.

I love that after writing this tweet I actually found a real instance (verified by other people's eyes) of gcc thinking something is being used before being initialized that was actually a false positive. Go figure
