I would like to read about the "pointer rift" and "uniform reference" issues
that seem to separate C from Pascal.  Will somebody please point me to an
interesting reference or two?

By the way, strings are static and therefore must be writable.  In
particular, C as defined in K&R cannot easily be put into ROM because
initialized data (which includes strings) must be able to be written.
