baadf00d!


Came across this while debugging a program today in Eclipse:

0xbaadf00d

0xBAADF00D : Used by Microsoft‘s LocalAlloc(LMEM_FIXED) to mark uninitialised allocated heap memory

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_number_(programming)#Magic_debug_values)

…I very obviously forgot to initialize one of my variables. ;-)
