@alexbuzzbee ... doesn't work either, different machines may use different byte order or integer sizes
Sorry for ruining your toots :D
@bugaevc That is part of why it is imbecilic. It only works reliably for IPC.
(This toot had serious issues with a typo correction due to mobile client’s lack of good delete-and-redraft.)
@alexbuzzbee nor even for IPC, 'cause 32-bit and 64-bit processes can coexist. You need to also ban all not-fixed length int types, then it'll work.
@bugaevc If you can't tell, I'm intentionally coming up with bad solutions to these problems.
@alexbuzzbee aaahh, got it now :D
