Funny, I distinctly remember one of my college professors going over
this. It was even a test question. In fact, I think we even had to
write a little essay on *why* a[i] is the same as i[a]. When you think
of C as what it is, glorified assembly language, it really does make
sense that a[i] should be the same as i[a], even if no sane person would
use the two interchangably.
