The Incredible Importance of NULL Testing

If you do not check for NULL pointers, you can get away with it right up until the point when the code presents you with one, at which time your code will merrily GPF. I am currently at about line 1400 in someone's 2800 line file, adding in the NULL pointer checks which aren't there at the moment.

Before I finish this, I am going to Sweet Baby Ray's for dinner.

Because I deserve it.
