I thought you would fix the segfault, but instead all I got was a lousy
XML file. :/

Well, your XML is useless, it’s unreadable. You could have used some bi‐
nary format and it would have been the same result. A separate parser is
needed for it (every XML standard needs a separate parser!), it’s not
human‐readable and it simply sucks. Conclusion: Never use XML anywhere.
If you produce XML you are part of the organised crime that is causing
global warming through overcomplex standards, inefficient parsing, meta‐
abstraction, lousy »high‐level« programming languages, lazy programming,
incompetent programmer education and religious believe in technology.

Don’t waste your time on such stuff and study something real. Maybe some
social stuff, so you will actually earn much money you can use to im‐
prove suckless? Studiying computer science does not really help humani‐

Now I have something useful to do and fix that bug. Thanks for not help‐
