Well, I've done it before:
"What kind of brain-damaged drone designed this piece of (excrement)?"
"This compiler needs a rewrite. Preferably by someone who isn't a (*beep*)ing
"Now for something pointless and unnecessary" (just before a "write the same
thing to a port ten times" loop)
"The (*beep*)head who designed this API should be hung, drawn and quartered"

As you can probably guess, I haven't had much luck with compilers, especially
the MICROS~1 compiler.

Now to find a way to design a GPIB protocol stack without the IEEE488.1
standards document or a known-working GPIB controller or peripheral. Or
cables. Fun!
