    Looks good to me.

    You're using `head' as "the place from which `get' gets characters" and
    you're using `tail' as "the place where `put' puts characters". So the
    FIFO is, logically:


    tail head
    * -> ******************** -> *
    put get


    I've always done it the other way: you put stuff onto the head and take
    stuff off the tail. Now I have a horid feeling that I've always been
    arse-about. hrm.
