From my point of view, it is something I would expect of anybody beyond a
junior technical writer. We can't expect programmers to provide *all* of
their source material to us in English. But let's face it --
understanding how to read C code isn't all that difficult a task. A
couple of nights with a good book on C will give you pretty much what you
need to know. And you DON'T have to be able to program in C - just tell
what the programmer was trying to do.
