The thing about B being typless is

x[y] and y[x] are the sme

also this is legal

auto x[20];
x-=10;

/* Array -10 to +9 */
and later reuse the variable fr loops

for(x=0;x<100;x++)

Finally there is this

suprise()
{
printf=scanf
}
and yes it changed all the calls (on the L66 anyway)

B is a simplified language based on BCPL (based on CPL).
For a long time the question of successor to C was would it
be 'D' or 'P'. We are still waiting to find out

The sort of survivor of B in its original form, tho its now mutated
a lot - is AWK
