Yes, I agree. It was the
   char t[1]="T"
I was questioning, since "T" is inherently 2 bytes long.

It might be standard C, or it may only be allowed on some compilers. I 
don't have a copy of K&R to check.

Whichever, using it should probably follow the two rules of 

1. Don't do it.
2. (For experts only) Don't do it now.

...since having a C string that doesn't have a \0 terminator is likely 
to cause confusion somewhere down the line.
