A mysterious and largely unknown gcc builtin function

#include <stdio.h>

   int  x;

   // \\\\\\\\\\\  ///////////// 
   // ||    POWERFUL MAGIC    ||
   // //////////   \\\\\\\\\\\\\
   x = __powerful_magic__( 1848);
   printf( "%d\n", x);

   return( 0);

you got me on this one - nice one ;-) I was thinking more like ioccc code:

main() {printf(&unix["\021%six\012\0"],(unix)["have"]+"fun"-0x60);}

Understood (by principle).

Though your code - i have to say, pedantic as I am - doesn't compile. :)
