Yeah, C is great and all. I like C, and reading K&R The C Programming Language can be a breath of fresh air sometimes. But it's not the one true way. There is no one true way in engineering. And when you're not really engineering, when you're just playing, then there is absolutely no one true way.

But if you're stricken with OCD, or perhaps you're developing for a system that requires such attention to detail, and you must concern yourself with excess bits and bytes, you're welcome to do that, too.

But if you're stricken with OCD, or perhaps you're developing for an 8-bit platform with an emulator, and you must concern yourself with excess bits and bytes, you're welcome to do that, too.
