I of course meant strongly-typed, you cannot pass a pointer to an int 
where a pointer
to a float is required ... modern C compilers require you to explicitly 
cast. Where
it fell down was all that automatic type promotion, and providing unsafe 

There is now a typesafe 'C', but I can't remember what it is called - 
presumably it uses some kind of linear-alias typing to make pointers safe.
