Well crashes don't help either.

Here are the different ways to make an application crash:
- You are free to modify the provided headers to throw an exception on
buffer overflows and the dereferencing of null pointers but I prefer to
keep the provided headers free from exceptions to favor speed.
- Explicit free() or delete are ignored and handled implicitly by the
- The code that was modified by the parser interacts perfectly well with
system headers or external libraries that weren't modified at all.
- There are minor rules you need to follow to make the code compile
correctly, like nested structures aren't supported, etc. but you'll get
the errors at compile-time thus when it runs then it cannot crash.
- You are free to write any kernel module, AI engine, etc. without any
explicit call to free() and the parser will handle it correctly.

The generated code keeps headers that aren't part of your project as
include statements so your compiler / cross-compiler will expand these
