Installing Ubuntu 16.04's friends into an iBook G4 with a USB pendrive

An IS_DEFINED() C macro to check whether another macro is defined
Every C programmer knows to use #defines and #ifdefs to disable compilation for a piece of code. But not everyone knows that there are better ways; the problem with this strategy is that the code becomes invisible to the compiler (and "smart" indexers), whi...
