Why do you ask?
 
3:08 AM
Should this method be public?
	public static String[]groups(Matcher m){
		String[]out=new String[m.groupCount()+1];
		for(int i=0;i<out.length;i++){
			out[i]=m.group(i);
		}
		return out;
	}
Because it is for now
 
Yes.
Public coding is always supported.
 
@SuperJedi224 You should change your tabs to spaces

@AlexA. That's what eclipse uses by default
I really don't particularly care either way, myself

@SuperJedi224 What is, tabs?
 
@AlexA. Yeah

Use of tabs as indentation is the leading cause of death in puppies

@TheDoctor I think you're required to terminate if your language is capable of terminating.

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I wonder if a Desmos answer would be valid for the French flag thingy
 
@quartata Oohhh! Good idea!
 
It would have the wrong colours though
 
3:14 AM
I already made it. I just don't if it is valid.

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Just because doesn't mean something Alex believes is wrong. It may be right, but he believes it is right for the wrong reasons. Therefore, the belief is right, but still .
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Default colors are red first then blue I think
 
@Mego ...

A: Does desmos.com count as a programming language?

PhiNotPiYes, Desmos.com counts as a programming language Scoring is the "normal" bytecount without special rules The examples above of Desmos.com's programming language demonstrate that it is a fully-functional programming language capable of solving a wide range of problems (probably all primitive rec...

 
@Mego Luckily, in this case, Alex is wrong and tabs are right, so there's no need for deeper probing.

@Geobits Who said anything about probing? Weirdo.
 
I thought probing was always implied.
 
I'd like to pick up golf programming, what language would you recommend for someone who always programmed in some variation of ECMA-script family language? :)

@quartata colors are backwards
 
@CreativeMagic Quite a few people use ECMA to golf. Not me, because eww, but then I again I golf in Java, so...
 
@Mego that sounds about right :D
 
@Mego Not for me
 
Oh they are. Fixing.

It's not a bad idea to start by golfing in a language you know well, to see if you like the process. If so, you can always learn a more concise language later.
 
@Geobits hmm, I was really hoping people would start saying something like: "Pyth, because of X, Y, Z" :)) But that's just me being selfish

@CreativeMagic Pyth, because of X, Y, Z
 
@Mego Fixed them.
 
@ThomasKwa wut
 
3:19 AM
I had the equations in the wrong order
 
@quartata if that's valid, 3x<-10 would be shorter

@Mego Thank you; I feel so much better
 
Since "The cow says muon" was the first thing I saw when I got here, I've decided that maybe tonight isn't a good time to visit T19B.
 
@Mego I can understand that one just fine.
 
3:29 AM
@Mego My brain is soothed by seeing the correct electron-muon mass ratio

I added two bytes for the colors.

@orlp ? computer

@quartata tbh I don't think those two bytes are needed, since it's default behavior
 
3:31 AM
@Mego crap. I am on a device that cannot run Desmos.. can you fix it and change the link for me?
 
What device cant run desmos?
 
@Mego I agree
 
It is since as Conor pointed out the colors are random

@GamrCorps Your computer's volume?
 
Hello again!
 
of course @Mego ninja'd my ninja so it was really a double-ninja now wasn't it? :P
 
@quartata well the equations are small enough that you could just input them I guess...
 
3:33 AM
If you're on Windows, you'll have a mixer and you can use that to turn down the volume for Chrome.
 
@El'endiaStarman Yes but my other chrome tabs and such would be too quiet then...
 
@Doorknob Yeah but I had the location and he didn't. You just showed it.
 
@Mego really? Huh.

guys I had an idea for a challenge
 
Anonymous
@orlp it's a dupe
 
@Mego err we may have had an edit conflict
 
3:37 AM
basically
your program must take 3 integers, and return a single integer
 
Lemme check
 
Anonymous
@quartata grab the link from the revision history
 
Mego is offensive
 
additionally, your answer must specify a maximum N such that your answer never returns an integer higher than that
 
vote to close as incredibly unclear what you're asking.
 
3:38 AM
then there's an array of numbers, and the controller will update all those numbers at the same time, using your function
 
nevermind i think we are ok
 
your function must then solve this:
The firing squad synchronization problem is a problem in computer science and cellular automata in which the goal is to design a cellular automaton that, starting with a single active cell, eventually reaches a state in which all cells are simultaneously active. It was first proposed by John Myhill in 1957 and published (with a solution) in 1962 by Edward Moore. == Problem statement == The name of the problem comes from an analogy with real-world firing squads: the goal is to design a system of rules according to which an officer can so command an execution detail to fire that its members fire...
 
@Mego thanks

@quartata welcome
 
lowest N wins, with code size as tiebreaker
 
3:39 AM
What are you guys talking about?
 
@orlp interesting. Too long to read the Wikipedia article but it seems like a good challenge. Have you tried sandboxing it yet?
 
basically, this challenge seems incredibly hard to write down
while being precise, and not clear as mud
 
I just realized my desmos answer is the shortest currently.
 
@quartata Lol really?
 
yay
 
3:41 AM
@quartata huh? What is this?
 
@quartata You're welcome for the programming language :P

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Correct.
 
@phase Hello what now

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ like a Eqs += {equation} type deal?
 
@AlexA. hi friend
 
:25494612 Desmos → connection, band;
Connection → (Greek) → σύνδεση
Σύνδεση → (lexilogos.com/keyboard/greek_modern_conversion.htm) → Síndesi
Síndesi → Sindesi

Sindesi is a language that compiles to Desmos-interprettable lines.

Syntax
If an unknown letter is met, is defined as the next expression, terminated by a semicolon (;) or an EOF or a newline.

Example: a34;ba^3
Output:
a = 34
b = a ^ 3

Everything is single-letter names, followed by an optional

An unknown function is defined with a capital letter as its first letter, with its arguments positioned afterwards, separated b
^ current WIP docs
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ For what?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Wasn't expecting that, but looks really cool! Might have to try that out....
 
@phase For a Desmos golfing lagnuage.
I call it Sindesi :P
This is my notebook:
 
3:47 AM
Why dont you leave the name as Σύνδεση?
 
Is there a guide anywhere for writing programming/golfing languages?
 
What is going on?!
 
@Eridan Google and your creativity.
 
@GamrCorps It's hard too type, though I might.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Good point.
 
3:47 AM
@Eridan Just take an input and go crazy
 
@Eridan Learn a depth algorithm and stick to it!
 
What is this desmos stuff and what challenge are you guys talking about?
 
@GamrCorps I made this, and I regret putting the fancy I in there.
 
I need to figure out how to make a 2D language so I can make my dream of Brunswick Stew into a reality.

@Eridan Stack-based language, each byte means something. Go.

@phase hi

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I would too. lol.
 
@phase Thanks, I'll look into that
 
@Eridan Start of with JavaScript :P It's easier.
 
3:50 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Learning a real programming language? I wouldn't dare doing that.
 
@Eridan And I am making a language called Mothership, you are welcome to browse the source code (Java). (Although it is very poorly, if at all, commented... yet).
 
:P
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I'd argue Python is better because it offers a better standard library.
 
@Eridan I mean making one.
 
s/JavaScript/Python or Ruby/
 
3:51 AM
@AlexA. why does this have 3 stars?
 
@GamrCorps I thought it was a language based off Mother (Earthbound) and got excited...
 
@phase I know, but I like JS because it give me literally instant feedback
 
@TanMath I don't know
 
@phase of course it is!
 
@phase lol

s/[a-z]*/JavaScipt/g
 
@phase it was named after a friend if you were wondering.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ So will every other language because most modern programming languages go relatively fast, giving you that sweet revenue.
@GamrCorps Does he play Mother?
 
@phase Unfortunately, no.
 
@phase True. I am mainly familiar with JS syntax and honestly think Python is a bit weird. Especiialy with "char".join(arr)
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ oh yeah that's weird af
 
3:52 AM
I like the syntax of Java.
 
@GamrCorps then tell him to go play mother
 
@phase And you can't join on an empty char?
 
You can
 
@phase I will
 
3:53 AM
Or naw
 
@Eridan I'd research IBM's X10 language. It has the syntax of Java but it is compiled, meaning it goes faster.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I've got no clue, I rarely code Python.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I code it, but not well enough to know every aspect of the language like I do Java or D
 
@phase Oh I see.
 
Thanks. Making the commands looks easy enough, but figuring out how to implement 2D-ness seems like more of a challenge unless that's based on counting the number of characters in each line and doing... stuff.
 
3:54 AM
Same here, but s/Java or D/JavaScript
 
@Eridan github.com/phase/refract is a language I made a while ago in Java that has exactly what you need!
@Eridan It's mostly just taking in a file and putting each line into a char array, then that into a char[][]
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ But yeah, ever language looks weird if you're not used to it. In your example, I need to look up JS join every time to get it the right way around :P
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ "".join(arr) is fine
 
@Sp3000 XD
@AlexA. Oh I remember.
 
@Sp3000 There's a jQuery plugin for that
 
3:57 AM
@phase Nice. Is it ok if I copy the basic ideas/layout of that for mine? I'm somewhat of... a noob :/
 
@phase ಠ_ಠ
 
@Eridan totes my goat
 
wut
 
@AlexA. I was trying to work with a numeric array and concluded that "".join(arr) was invalid :P
I'm used to JS auto-type cast
 
@AlexA. deal with it u_u
 
3:58 AM
That auto cast o_O
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Oh it doesn't work for lists with numeric values?
 
@AlexA. I don't think so.
 
Need to convert to str first
