Re: [f-cpu] calling conventions



Thomas, it wasn't really my intention to hurt you :(. I just found funny to see
what a 'frenglish' may give as result. You really don't need to justify
yourself. And of course, i wouldn't really mean you were not understandable :(.
I suppose people here are not all acquainted with fluent english (as I am not),
and it is not what we expect from people here, so please excuse me if I really
hurt you :(.
