No, hardcoded would be if you removed this line of code:
case 'a': addr = strtol(optarg, 0, 16); break;
What he's got is called a *default value*.
If you can't tell which is which, it might be a good idea to not bring it
up any further. If you're going to try to insult somebody by accusing them
of something (like "hardcoding"), you could either do the world a favor and
make sure you understand the meaning of the accusation, or be *creative*:

Senator George Smathers about half-way down).
(Hints for the unclued: Try getting your code to run with a different value
than '1700' without either recompiling or using a hex editor. Then get his code
to run with a different value using '-a'. Then read this:
and let us know when you've figured it out....)
