Admitting Defeat On K&R in “Learn C The Hard Way”(r/programming)

I read an interview a long time ago where one of the K&R guys said something to the effect of “Yeah, we got some of the operator precedence rules wrong. We noticed it after awhile but we didn’t change it because by that time there were hundreds of kilobytes of code written in C and it didn’t seem fair to change it.”

I don’t remember where I read that; it might have been in this book. Incidentally the fish on the cover is a coelacanth, pronounced “C-le-kanth” and it remained undiscovered until the 20th century, making it a “Deep C secret”. I love the double pun and the book was quite good.
