    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
