Fair enough. Nor do know if there is any such separation or if there is
even any such mailing lists. After all, CS students learn C as a matter
of rote during their classes. So any extra interest by individuals may
be handled by worldwide mailing lists/forums.

However, my intent is to suggest contacting the CSC ... as opposed to
searching UW as a whole. The CSC is an informal _club_ of enthusiasts
and, in many ways, is the closest analog to KWLUG at UW.

I view the CSC as a good source of the kind of information that Robert
is looking for. I imagine that they can give the best answers, with the
least effort on Robert's part.
