11:00 AM
and then I got this one because I also want to calculate the LCP: arxiv.org/pdf/1101.3448.pdf
I got source code too - sites.google.com/site/yuta256/sais
 
@aditsu the dc3 algorithm simply produces the lcp array too. See the end of cs.helsinki.fi/u/tpkarkka/publications/jacm05-revised.pdf
 
but doesn't seem to do the LCP
@Lembik I think SA-IS is faster though
 
yes! But do you care about speed?
if you can't actually implement it :)
dc3 is comprehensible :)
but it isn't the fastest method in practice you are right
 
@Lembik well I'm trying to fix that
 
:)
good luck!
 
11:03 AM
so I guess you're not familiar with it..
 
what's this for
 
suffix arrays
 
Solving any particular problem?
 
well, finding the longest common substring
 
@Lembik Well otherwise you could have an unlimited alphabet, which are quite different cases. So I'd explicitly state which one you're aiming for in the challenge.
 
11:15 AM
"Intuitively, …" [extremely non-intuitive stuff following]
@Lembik btw I was reading that too, it stops making sense about 1/4 of the way through
 
Hᴇʏ ᴀʟʟ
 
@flawr I think for any finite length string, the optimal number runs occur when the string is binary
@aditsu let me know where you get stuck and I can help
hi @feersum I am working on the problem of getting answers for my challenge
 
@Sherlock9 Hey part of all
 
I get stuck at completely different things in each document; anyway, I gotta refuel now, bbl
 
@aditsu ok but if you choose a document I have give you and get stuck please let me know :)
 
11:29 AM
I didn't understand that one
 
@Lembik I'm not looking into DC3, but only SA-IS
 
Yᴏᴜ ᴋɴᴏᴡ ᴡʜᴀᴛ I ᴊᴜsᴛ ʀᴇᴍᴇᴍʙᴇʀᴇᴅ? Dᴇᴀᴛʜ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ Dɪsᴄᴡᴏʀʟᴅ sᴇʀɪᴇs ᴛᴀʟᴋs ɪɴ sᴍᴀʟʟ ᴄᴀᴘs :D
 
@Lembik "I think" is usually not a satisfactory result in math
 
depends @flawr , aren't all conjectures without proofs "I think" results?
 
@Sherlock9 The book? Is it worth reading?
 
11:42 AM
Yᴇᴀʜ, Dɪsᴄᴡᴏʀʟᴅ ɪs ᴀ ᴘʀᴇᴛᴛʏ ғᴜɴ sᴇʀɪᴇs
 
@Lause yes, and that's why they aren't satisfactory
 
zyabin101 did you get your answer about compressing the flag?
 
@Sherlock9 writing that in the notepad will have to go see my librarian !
 
@flawr well some of them are still considered "as good as true" if they have good evidence
 
@Lembik Well how can you be sure that your testcases actually are optimal?
 
11:43 AM
It reminds me that I have to buy some bookshelves
I'm at 500+ Comic/Manga/Books, and it's pilling up in boxes atm..
 
@Lause well "as good as true" really is not satisfactory from a math poitn of view
 
@flawr you still can base other results off it, like in RH case
 
Sure, assuming it is true but all those efforts are in vain if it proves to be false.
 
@Katenkyo I ʀᴇᴄᴏᴍᴍᴇɴᴅ ᴘɪᴄᴋɪɴɢ ᴀ ʙᴏᴏᴋ ᴀғᴛᴇʀ ᴛʜᴇ ғɪʀsᴛ ᴛᴡᴏ ᴏʀ ᴛʜʀᴇᴇ ᴀᴛ ғɪʀsᴛ. Tʜᴇ ғɪʀsᴛ ᴛᴡᴏ ᴀʀᴇ ɴᴏᴛ ᴀ ɢᴏᴏᴅ ɪɴᴛʀᴏᴅᴜᴄᴛɪᴏɴ ᴛᴏ ᴛʜᴇ ʀᴇsᴛ. Iᴛ's ᴀ sᴇʀᴇɪs ᴏғ sᴇʟғ-ᴄᴏɴᴛᴀɪɴᴇᴅ sᴛᴏʀɪᴇs ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇʏ ɢᴇᴛ ʙᴇᴛᴛᴇʀ ʟᴀᴛᴇʀ.
 
Please no all caps.
 
11:46 AM
@Lause So should we say P =/= NP is true until we find an evidence? ^^
 
@Katenkyo Tʜᴇʀᴇ ᴀʀᴇ ᴄᴏɴᴛɪɴᴜᴀᴛɪᴏɴs ʙᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴏsᴇ ᴀʀᴇ sᴘʀᴇᴀᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ
@flawr Tʜᴇsᴇ ᴀʀᴇ sᴍᴀʟʟ ᴄᴀᴘs, sɪʀ
 
@Katenkyo not true just more likely to be true than the other option
@Katenkyo would you dismiss a result only on the basis it asumed P=/= NP?
 
@Sherlock9 I will document myself before buying them in this case. Thanks for the advice of skipping the first few ones
 
Skip them at first
 
@Sherlock9 He's saying "Stop using small caps." (and I agree). They're hard to read.
 
11:49 AM
I personally think the watch or witches storylines are better introduction than the rincewind ones
 
You can go back to them later. They're alright, but different from everything from about the third book on.
@El'endiaStarman Fair enough :D
 
@Sherlock9 So what
 
@Lause the thing is you can't disprove P =/= NP by saying I found a case where P = NP
 
Just being pedantic. Stopped
 
So no, I wouldn't
 
11:50 AM
@Lause Absolutely. Guards, Guards!, Mort, and Wyrd Sisters are all interesting starting points IMO
 
@El'endiaStarman I find small caps far less annoying than caps, and as easy to read as lowercases. Only my 2 cents though
 
@Katenkyo Actually yes, you can. It's been proved that a P solution to any NP problem means that P solutions for all NP problems exists and can be constructed from the first P solution.
 
@Sherlock9 If I like this serie, I would eventually read them even if you told me to burn them ^^
 
@Katenkyo I never meant that. Only though if you had a result saying - Goldbach Conjecture is true if P=/=NP , it would be an interesting result, even though it depends on P vs NP
 
@Katenkyo Haha, fair enough
 
11:52 AM
@Sherlock9 I also enjoyed Most von Lipwig's storylines very much. And the film version of going postal is very good.
 
@El'endiaStarman Forgot that it was a problem were we had to define P and NP as strictly different or stricrly equal, my bad
 
@Lause I've been reading the Discworld series in sequence anyway (against the advice I posted above haha) but I'm at Small Gods, so I am nowhere near Moist's introduction
 
@Lause The funny thing here, is that I wouldn't publish something like that if I found it because I would feel like it isn't complete, and for me, not complete= garbage
 
@Sherlock9 I do that as well now, but I had some moments in my life when I read them when they came out
 
I don't have a great mind, if I can't explain every little pieces, or at least understand them, I can't say what I discover is something worth attention
 
11:54 AM
@Katenkyo Well I think that dependence of two problems can be an useful information as well
 
@Lause And I would say you're right, but that's how my ill brain works ^^'
 
@Lause One example of this is that Taniyama-Shimura conjecture proves Fermat's Last Theorem, which I find very interesting
 
Oh yeah that is way cool
 
@Sherlock9 Subtle nitpick: proving Taniyama-Shimura* proves Fermat's Last Theorem. The proof that they were equivalent is separate and came earlier.
 
We all get turns to be pedants! :D
 
11:58 AM
I would be thoroughly suprised if a proof of NP =/= P => Goldbach came out though
 
@El'endiaStarman Subtle nitpick: they're not equivalent, Fermat is a corrolary of Taniyama-Shimura afaik
 
The implication 'true -> true' works both ways.
 
@Fatalize Oh, I got that wrong, then.
 
yeah Modularity => Fermat
 
"Andrew Wiles proved the modularity theorem for semistable elliptic curves, which was enough to imply Fermat's last theorem. Later, Christophe Breuil, Brian Conrad, Fred Diamond, and Richard Taylor extended Wiles' techniques to prove the full modularity theorem in 2001"
 
12:02 PM
@feersum I more meant NP=/=P=>Goldbach without proving or disproving either of them
 
@feersum If that were the case, there wouldn't be so many statements like "this theorem is true, but not the converse".
 
@Lause What? I'm talking about the Fermat stuff.
 
Ah sorry
 
@El'endiaStarman Are you saying true->true is logically incorrect?
 
No, I'm saying that "If A, then B" being true does not mean "If B, then A" is also true.
 
12:03 PM
True implies true, to be clear.
I'm saying that if A = true and B = true, then A implies B and B implies A.
 
If you proved FLT but not modularity , with our current knowledge you wouldn't be able to get modularity from FLT
 
@feersum So, if A is "a square is a rectangle" and B is "3 is a prime"...
 
@El'endiaStarman Yes.
 
Well the issue at hand seems that feersum is talking about values of logical statements (for which implications are actually correct) and El'endia is talking about the logical statements themselves, disjoined from their values for which the implications are nonsense
 
I'm not so sure you can treat true and false in logic like functions in higher-order functions
 
12:18 PM
^^

Proposition: "All Downgoats are goats."
Contrapositive: "If this animal is not a goat, it is definitely not Downgoat."
Converse: "All goats are Downgoats."
Inverse: "If this animal is not Downgoat, it is definitely not a goat."
 
@Sherlock9 0/10 doesn't cover the cases Chatgoat and Upgoat
Would not smile again
 
Katenkyo is sad. Draw him many smiles to cheer him up! :)
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 I'm actually more than sad, I'm as salty as the dead sea because I have to do some Responsive WebDesign
 
12:31 PM
:(
ohai @RenderSettings?
 
Reductio ad absurdum:
1. "If all goats are Downgoats, and no goats are Downgoats, then no animals are goats."
2. "If all non-goats are Downgoats, and no non-goats are Downgoats, then all animals are goats."
For extra fun:
Noncontradiction: "If all animals are goats, and no animals are goats, then Dennis has been outgolfed."

A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

SokPower Grid Resource Costs Introduction In the board game Power Grid, an integral part of the game is the act of buying resources to fuel your power stations. There are four types of resource used in the game (five, if you include renewable energy, but obviously you can't buy resources for that)...

 
@LegionMammal978 Has Dennis ever been outgolfed?
 
@Sherlock9 Just using Dennis having been outgolfed as an example proposition; after all...
 
12:50 PM
Hi.
 
@DestructibleWatermelon Hi.
@BusinessCat Hi.
Want to take more work on MtG creatures?
 
Remember how i was making that language? Well, I'm still making the spec, but I'm not sure how to implement repeatable control flow
well, "where" to implement it
Oh wait, idea in my mind suddenly
 
I LOVE my new Fantasque Sans Mono. \o/
 
really
Fonts are fun
I made a bad font once
I still use it though
 
Who's into Magic: the Gathering and has enough creativity?
(for making creature cards)
 
12:56 PM
I have creativity, but I don't play M:tG
but i think its interesting
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 I'm into MtG Turing machines but not much else
 
@LegionMammal978 The machine is long broken.
 
I think I've done some fair work on this spec
 
@DestructibleWatermelon Where are the FireMelon, AirMelon and EarthMelon?
4
 
@Katenkyo There don't exist such fruits. o_o But good joke.
 
1:05 PM
Well, you see
those are not liquids
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 They exist, they are the divine Elemelons
2
 
there do exist mercurymelons

Q: Narayana-Zidek-Capell numbers

Oliver Daugherty-LongGenerate the nth Narayana-Zidek-Capell number given an input n. Fewest bytes win. *f(1)=1 *f(2n)=2f(2n-1) *f(2n+1)=2f(2n)-f(n) Test Cases: f(1)=1 f(9)=42 f(14)=1308 f(15)=2605 f(23)=664299

 
and also gallium melons
but only in very tropical areas
 
(Sadly, it isn't mine, I think I've read it long time ago somewhere on the internet)
 
1:06 PM
@DestructibleWatermelon How would you go about destroying a WaterMelon?
 
You can get rockmelons, from really hot places
 
@DestructibleWatermelon So, you wish to do creature cards for MtG, no?
 
@DestructibleWatermelon EarthMelon and AirMelon can be liquid in certain temperature and pressure. And FireMelon being composed of plasma, it is technically a liquid too :D
 
Air ceases to be air when liquid
 
@DestructibleWatermelon Would it be possible to create a HeliumMelon?
 
1:07 PM
and earth, refers to soil
Helium is a superfluid or something
 
(Wow, I have 3 posts on the starboard!)
 
it acts too weird
 
@DestructibleWatermelon When cooled down to a liquid, that is
 
So... any DryIceMelons?
 
1:09 PM
oh wait, not all liquid helium is superfluid
dryicemelons would not exist (because it wouldn't be ice)
but perhaps CO2 melons
in reeeaaallly high pressure
there would be no one to enjoy it
 
Even more insane:
Watermelonmelons?
 
wait
you would need a blender
also, how high is the pressure for liquid co2
 
A dryicemelon would be a really cold airmelon, wouldn't it?
 
Speaking of elements: who wants to play Alchemy together in the Sandbox?
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 ?
 
1:12 PM
@LegionMammal978 littlealchemy.com
 
Oh, sure
 
@BusinessCat Ping me if you want to work on creature cards for MtG.
 
whoa
15 seconds in and i've already made an atomic bomb
wtf
also that is a great out of context post right there
 
There, just reset it
 
@flawr Hi.. you asked how can I be sure the test cases are optimal
 
1:16 PM

@flawr I exhaustively tested all strings with 3 symbols. You are right I don't have proof that 4 wouldn't be better. This just means that an answerer may possibly find a clever solution
@feersum is there anything I can do to make it clearer?
 
little alchemy hint: don't combine anything with something that's underlined
 
@Lembik I dunno. I didn't try super hard to understand it.
 
@feersum OK. I am a bit worried that smart people aren't understanding my challenge so if there is anything I can do to clarify it please let me know
@feersum or just ask anything that is taking more than a minute to understand please
 
Which question is this, Lembik?
 
1:28 PM
please ask if anything is unclear!
 
Ohh. Yeah, I get the general idea, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to implement it
Doesn't help that I should be finishing my report for the end of term
Good luck, Lembik
 
@Sherlock9 thanks!
@Sherlock9 you may find I double the bounty in a few days :)
 
Duly noted
 
1:45 PM
hmm, I wonder if I should contact one of the guys who invented SA-IS, he's from HK :p

    SortedSet<string>[] ssSsE_0 = {
        ssSsE__0[0][1], ssSsE__0[0][2], ssSsE__0[0][3], ssSsE__0[0][4], ssSsE__0[0][5], ssSsE__0[0][6], ssSsE__0[0][7],
        ssSsE__0[1][1], ssSsE__0[1][2], ssSsE__0[1][3], ssSsE__0[1][4], ssSsE__0[1][5], ssSsE__0[1][6], ssSsE__0[1][7], ssSsE__0[1][8], ssSsE__0[1][9],
        ssSsE__0[2][1], ssSsE__0[2][2], ssSsE__0[2][3], ssSsE__0[2][4], ssSsE__0[2][5], ssSsE__0[2][6],
        ssSsE__0[3][1], ssSsE__0[3][2], ssSsE__0[3][3], ssSsE__0[3][4] };
 
@LegionMammal978 In production, it would be the same thing, but with SortedSetOfStringWithAnNameHorriblyLongAndWithoutMeaning__0 instead of ssSse__0
 
@Katenkyo But yeah, I kind of use Hungarian notation with no actual variable names
So ssSsE_i would be a SortedSet<string>[] and ssSsE__i would be a SortedSet<string>[][]
 
@LegionMammal978 Yes, but why name it ssSsE in the first place? If you don't want to use a variable with a meaning, then just go for even shorter -> ss
 
@Katenkyo The entire thing is systematic
    class C1
    {
        public int i0, i1;
        public string s0, s1, s2;
    }

    class C2
    {
        public int i0;
        public string s0, s1;
    }

    {
        bool b0 = true;
        DataContractJsonSerializer dcjs0 = new DataContractJsonSerializer(typeof(S0));

@Lembik The scoring is really confusing
 
35°C WTFFFFFFFF
hi
 
@LegionMammal978 When even abreviated name start being too long, I usually go for one or two letters -> d0 :D
 
@TùxCräftîñg And the effing humidity.
 
@TùxCräftîñg It's hella hot here too (Nice, France)
 
3:10 PM
@Katenkyo (Nice, Portugal)
too ealry? =P
 
@Katenkyo It's not so hot here at home (Engels, Russia)
 
normal, you are in Russia ;_;

3:20 PM
@Lembik I now have a running program, but only for the alphabet {0,1}
 
find ./ -type f -name *.js only return js files in the current directory and dont search recursively
 
@TùxCräftîñg -R?
 
@TùxCräftîñg Ew, gross. It was 36 c here yesterday.
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 unknow predicate: -R
 
(I did have to Google Fahrenheit to Celsius)
 
3:25 PM
._.
 
@flawr Ah.. what is confusing about it? It just a way to allow non-optimal answers to get points
@flawr awesome!
@flawr what can you get up to?
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan There are a few nice points you could memorize for the everyday usage: -18°C=0°F, then 0°C = Freezing point of Water = 32°F, 20°C = Room temperature = 68°F, 38°C = body temperature = 100°F, 100°C = boiling water = 212°F
@Lembik Pretty much as high as you want, as long as you wait long enough
It is just an exhausive search
 
the body temperature is 37°C AFAIK
 
@flawr Obligatory xkcd link
 
@TùxCräftîñg you're probably right, I just had in mind that 100°F was originaly chosen to match about the body temperature
 
3:33 PM
ok
 
@TimmyD "223kg: your mom (also incl makeup)"
 
files=$(find ./ -type f)
for file in $files; do
    echo $(echo $file | grep *.js)
done
 
@Lembik It's about O(n^2 * 2^(n-1))
 
dont work .____________________.
 
@flawr ah so probably to about 25?
 
3:36 PM
just needed to change grep *.js to egrep \.js$
 
depending one what language you have coded it in of course
 
@flawr I knew a couple of those. Like 0 == 32 and 100 == 212. Body temperature is 98.6 though.
 
@Lembik Matlab, n=10 already takes about 10 seconds
 
@flawr ah ok. This may be a situation where python is actually faster
 
n=12 about 20sec, n=13 about 40 sec
 
3:39 PM
so 25 seems a little optimisitc
 
@Lembik matlab is just an interpreted scripting language, so it is quite slow
 
right.. like python I suppose
 
@TùxCräftîñg Do find . -name '*.js' -print
 
@flawr doesn't it have a JIT these days?
I mean a JIT compiler
 
@quartata thx :D
 
3:41 PM
gci .|?{$_.Name-like"*.js*"}
 
very suboptimal
 
In that case
ls -R *|grep \.js$
 
@Lembik it does, but it still is quite slow

especially if you cannot vectorize your code
@Lembik So what happens if someone posts e.g. code that returns some strings for n=2...10. Then someone else posts acode that returns strings for n=2..15, but the ones for n=2...10 are slightly worse.
Who wins?
 
no-console is on by default in eslint ;_;
 
Dang, this is a great answer to that Iceland-flag challenge.
Wow, and I just watched the numbers tick up to a Mortarboard for that user.
 
Is the room free enough so I can post some request safely?
 
4:05 PM
@flawr the n=2..10 person
 
So it isn't. Foils my plan.
 
@Lembik Oh ok
@Lembik patterns are cool
 
@Lembik still no answers I see
I attempted to write something today, failed miserably. On the bright side I now know RegEx backrefs and (?:non-)?capturing groups much better now
 
i love DuckDuckGo

i love Google
 
i just have to type ascii table to get the ascii table, directly in the search engine
my connection is slow. really
 
@TùxCräftîñg Bing does that, too.
 
casual, not memorizing the ascii table /s

anyway, the best search engine is DuckDuckGo.
and the best editor emacs.

@TùxCräftîñg you are my antichrist
google and vim
 
google ;_; seriously
 
I like google, I'm a google fanboy
also my job is kind of to use Google AdWords to advertise so
yknow
 
fs.exists is deprecated WTF ;_;
 
Just open it and catch the exception?
 
@TùxCräftîñg use this
function exists(path) {

    fs.accessSync(path, fs.F_OK);
  } catch(err) {
    return false;
  }
  return true;
}

Q: Can Mario go to the end of this map

TùxCräftîñgCreate a program that determines, given an input of the path, whether Mario can reach the end, denoted by E, from the start, denoted by S. A path will look something like this: S = E ===== In a path, the various symbols and what they represent are: =: wall/floor/ceiling. Mario cannot walk t...

no answers ;_;
 
@TùxCräftîñg I will totally attempt that tomorrow morning when less drunk
for now, cya
 
I have a question on whether I should post this challenge on code golf or somewhere else.
So here goes: Design a hash function in javascript such that the following ratio is maximized:
(time taken to do hash if implemented in c) / (time taken to do the hash in the aforementioned javascript function)
Is this code-golf'-ish?
 
We do have a which kinda fits what you're describing
 
Ah.... almost
fastest-relative-code (javascript to c) is pretty much the idea.

Still .... would you like a challenge like that?
I'm just scared that it might get down-voted instantly by people who might think it doesn't belong
 
Well sandbox it and see what people think. I can't really tell what it would be like without a more fleshed out challenge spec
 
Ok cool

@RuHasha its a bit weird though.
so people have to kind of levarage on bad things in C which are good in JS ?
 
I guess... The idea behind it comes from people saying dynamic languages are slow. So naturally the question is "what sort of things are less slow"
yup
 
so they write all answers in 2 languages? C and JS ?
 
Yes that would be the plan.
But what would make it tricky is that someone could optimize another persons C implementation, changing their score.
 
hmm.. try it out in the sandbox to see the initial response/suggestions
 
@MartinEnder Is there a way in Retina to do a Replace with overlapping matches for each one? Or append a result for each overlapping match?

@TùxCräftîñg Want answers, get 125 rep for a bounty.
 
(An effective amount of 125 rep, which is two components: 75 rep is the "put bounties" privilege, plus 50 for the minimal bounty.)

Q: C++ programming

3liDesign a program that will input numeric data type double into an array. Do this function by designing a function called inputData . Then the program should sort the data and display the whole content of the array. Sort the array by using bubble sort (you can Google that/ or use the qsort func...

@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 All your projects seem to be of the form "do it for me please"
 
What? I don't see any project being in any such form.
There must be downstars, right here, right now!
 
downstars ._.
 
@Fatalize I really don't see any of my projects being in such form.
You just think that every my project is annoying, just like me, and should exit chat forever, sooner or later, just like me.
Everyone thinks I'm a spammer in this room.
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 I just think people would be way more interested in your projects if you present something that is more than just "here's an idea"
which in itself is not bad at all, giving ideas is always good
but you always repeat "Who's interested to do this" for quite some time, wtihout working on it by yourself first

@Fatalize I don't have enough creativity for this project.
@Fatalize I did prepare a base card list for my MtG set, just that I didn't release it.
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 That's what you believe but if you try you can do those projects by yourself, even if incomplete
When I decided to rewrite all of Brachylog in Prolog, I didn't ask "who's interested in doing that?", even though I wasn't confident at all I would be able to do it
But I started and it worked
And now a few people got interested
I'm not hating on you (nor do I think anyone here is), but you need to believe in yourself a bit more
If you come up with all those project ideas, you probably have enough creativity to do them
 
> The language was first conceived by a group around Alain Colmerauer in Marseille, France
Prolog is french :O
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 and ultimately getting things done by yourself feels great, even if no one cares about what you've done
and you will not feel bad because people are not interested in what you want to do
@TùxCräftîñg Yep
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 TL;DR believe in yourself
