side effects: what happens because the function was called, but not
necessarily directly evident to the calling function.

i.e.: printf ("foo\n"); not only writes foo to stdout, it may also
increment a pointer in a buffer in libc, but the calling routine does
not know about that buffer..

epilog: the opposite of prolog. Something that happens after the fact.
