Oh, and Chris was right; he approached me afterwards and claimed that
code was Rob Pike, not Dennis Richie.

Here's some dmr code from the 1972 prototype C compiler, in memoriam:

init(s, t)
char s[]; {
	extern lookup, symbuf, namsiz;
	char symbuf[], sp[];
	int np[], i;

	i = namsiz;
	sp = symbuf;
		if ((*sp++ = *s++)=='\0') --s;
	np = lookup();
	*np++ = 1;
	*np = t;
