> C is a Spartan language, and so should your naming be. Unlike Modula-2 and Pascal programmers, C programmers do not use cute names like ThisVariableIsATemporaryCounter. A C programmer would call that variable "tmp", which is much easier to write, and not the least more difficult to understand.
one day my computer will stop randomly switching to QWERTY international. one day.
@TùxCräftîñg one day my computer will stop randomly switching to UTC. one day.
I have the same feelings toward the Canadian Multilingual keyboard
Where a question mark becomes É
How does that even workÉ
6:04 PM
In fact it happened just now so I had to write out question mark because I can only type É
@LegionMammal978 one day people will stop hating me. one day.
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 I literally just said that I don't hate you. In fact saying "one day people will stop hating me" probably has the opposite effect you want
@Downgoat, I've got a question in the cheddar room
@LegionMammal978 oh ok lemme join
6:14 PM
For the first time ever, I hired a machine for help!
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 For the first time ever, I physically forced hired a Downgoat to help!
I used donjon to prepare (as in research by taking out small details) a random dungeon. And from there, I started drawing monsters creatures.
A "Tiny Monstrous Centipede" is way too tiny to imagine in an MtG world, so I resized the centipede to normal and i.stack.imgur.com/QGILc.png
Made a scratch of the centipede.
@Downgoat can I manually set the encoding of a file with node js? or create a file that has an encoding?
usually you can just pass an argument e.g. `fs.readFile(blah, 'utf16le')
fs doesn't support cp437 :/
6:30 PM
no but you can use a plugin :D
which one? iconv?
iconv-lite should do it too
so, I read a file regularly, then use iconv-lite?
Is it just me or did github change their font
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ yeah
@Downgoat idts
6:32 PM
Q: If a challenge gives a reference implementation, do we have to ban the language the reference is written in?

dorukayhanI recently stumbled upon this challenge where the OP gives a non-golfed reference implementation in C++. This makes it a no-brainer to solve the challenge with C++ by just golfing the reference. Is it a good idea to ban C++ from that challenge, or the language X from a challenge Y where Y gives ...

6:42 PM
@mbomb007 I can't really tell what you're trying to do, but & doesn't work on replace stages.
New @github font day! https://t.co/oKE7DLPfPJ
@Downgoat hey could you lend me a hand? I'm having encoding problems
@MᴀʀsUʟᴛᴏʀ wat
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ sure
The raw hexbytes of what I want are 0b2b0b7465737480
They get converted correctly, at least, in my text editor
(vertical tab)+(vertical tab)testÇ
so that's:
0x0b 0x2b 0x0b 0x74 0x65 0x73 0x74 0x80 right?
What I actually get is this:
Ç => ├ç, which is wrong. The other two glyphs are right.
ok so you're using node to write the files?
write and read
can you show your code?
I think you should instead write a buffer:
6:50 PM
good idea
fs.writeFile('blah.txt', new Buffer([0x0b, 0x2b, 0x0b, 0x74, 0x65, 0x73, 0x74, 0x80]))
i think that's how you create a buffer
er, maybe it's ...[
> new Buffer([0x0b, 0x2b, 0x0b, 0x74, 0x65, 0x73, 0x74, 0x80])
<Buffer 0b 2b 0b 74 65 73 74 80>
idk >_>
I think it's deprecated this syntax
try Buffer.from([blah, asdf, ffweahf])
6:53 PM
I did new Buffer(...array) and it worked fine
<Buffer 0b 2b 0b 74 65 73 74 80>
thanks a million
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ np
‮‮hey dudes, I'm using the right-to-left override
FJnsodig, dfghadhpjun we a ah4
6:55 PM
I was using the left-to-right override
yours was so intelligent
@Midnightas is this lojban or something?
@Downgoat look at the starboard
6:55 PM
@Downgoat It was the right-to-left override
It makes things go right-to-left
such bork
Copy the character after this: ‮
It should make things go right-to-left
‮haha, it's right to left
I made my first pull request ever on github, it was scary
‮Now Downgoat is rotated in two directions D:
@Midnightas link?
‮the world will be destroyed
6:59 PM
D: ;_;
to the pull request? sure
it'll work
why is it scary
I'm scared of rejection xD
oh my god this new github font is hurting my eyes
mine too
7:01 PM
@Midnightas ;_; we all get rejected here and then ;______;
Did you see this repo?
The only accepted pull request out of 105 is the one that adds ONE NEW LINE
@Midnightas that PR was reverted
Was it? I'm pretty sure it was merged
didn't see that
do you have your own language, ‮downgoat?
the new github font is realy ugly
yeah, it is
7:04 PM
3 mins ago, by Downgoat
oh my god this new github font is hurting my eyes
@Midnightas yeah :D
Which one is it?
I don't really care for the new font
oo', I like the syntax.
Everytime I make a language, the syntax always turns esoteric
what is the name of the new font?
7:06 PM
@Midnightas :D \o/
@TùxCräftîñg it uses system fonts
Pretty sure its the Mac font
> The goal of Cheddar is to be a fast,
you lost me at fast
isn't this based off JS ?
7:07 PM
my programming language name is Cjam... BACKWARDS
i couldnt think of anything else so i think i copied ths stuff of like ruby's homepage or something
idk it might of been rust
Majc = majic
and it sounds like Magic
Hello @DrGreenEggsandIronMan!
@Optimizer I read that as fat >_>
hi @DrGreenEggsandIronMan
7:09 PM
o/ I'm actually not planning on being here very long.
goddammit windows is small again ;_;
Ill be right back in 20 minutes
7:11 PM
the font is san fransisco, the apple system font
I didn't think macOS used SF. TIL
i found the bug :/

eeewwwwwwww bing aaahhhh
7:14 PM
CMC: Find the use-case for this line of code (JavaScript):
            if (tmp.value == tmp.value)
where tmp.value is a getter or is a symbol
Windows is retarded. Right now I'm manually adding USB3 drivers to the windows 7 installer so that I can actually install it. facepalm.
@Downgoat Nope
when tmp.value has == overloaded
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan ._.
7:16 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Nope, it's JavaScript
you can do that in js
wait wat how
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ?
because you are too lazy to write true ?
I remember reading it somewhere
7:17 PM
@TùxCräftîñg Nope
The real answer: *drumroll*
It's testing for NaN
@Downgoat could you add a "make windows suck less" builtin to cheddar?
yes pls
@LegionMammal978 TIL
@LegionMammal978 that was my second guess, no joke
use isNan?
just use Math.isNaN
7:18 PM
Or NaN.isMath
Math.isNaN exists? ._.
what is different between math.isnan and isnan
Hello @aloisdg!
@Downgoat Math.isNaN works better. isNaN is unpredictable.
7:19 PM
so much wat rn
Q: Walk the labyrinth

nicaelOr maybe it's not really a labyrinth, but still. Rules: Input is a two-line string, consisting of asterisks, digits (0-9) and latin letters. That string is a labyrinth to walk through. The lines have the equal length. Output is the number of steps you have to take to exit the string (last step...

The answer: Math.isNaN doesn't exist, only isNaN does
@Downgoat ^
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ^
@LegionMammal978 I think he meant Number.isNaN
@LegionMammal978 sorry, Number.isNaN
7:20 PM
triple ninja is real
wut the question is already deleted ._.
huh they never entered the chatroom
I am thinking about releasing this challenge. What do you think? meta.codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/9552/15214
@aloisdg Idk if nicael is male or female so you should use gender neutral they or (s)he perhaps
7:23 PM
@aloisdg what's the output for like "AA"?
I assume A
?ffo ti nrut I od woH
7:24 PM
will output A
ok I think you should add examples showing cases where the letters are both uppercase/lowercase. Like: HHello
@Optimizer stop adding RTL toggle ._.
ton ma I
I remove the sentence to be gender compliant :)
> The goal is, having taken a string as input, remove the following duplicate of each letter with a following "triggered" case (i.e. uppercase becames lowercase and vice-versa).
maybe slightly rewrite this as:
7:26 PM
I think I may have golfed the PowerShell answer for the Iceland flag challenge ... 410 bytes :(
> The goal of this challenge is: given a string as input, remove duplicate pairs of letters, if the latter item in pair is of opposite case. (i.e. uppercase becames lowercase and vice-versa).
@TimmyD better than Cheddar at impossibleATM bytes
if the second item in pair is of opposite case.
of "an" opposite case?
"opposite case" isn't a "count noun" so I don't think "an" is applicable here
ok (en is not my main language ^^)
7:35 PM
@aloisdg english is mine but I still have very bad grammar :P
english is not mine but for some reason know it better than my native one D:
@quartata what hitsound do you use for tf2, if any?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I use this:
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I use the default one.. if there is one
for fun I want to use the SE ping sound :P
7:38 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ vine.co/v/O37rT1LK5Dj
@MartinEnder Yeah, but I wish there was a way to do a "replace" using overlapping matches, but either iterate over the matches or append instead of replacing.
going in with the SE ping sound >_>
I think someone should create a language called "Your Mom", just so that during an argument over which language is a better one, they can interject that "Your mom is a better language"
7:42 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ trust me go with the goat, you don't know what you're missing out on
i gtg
@Midnightas bai!
@Midnightas baii
the new github font is really ugly
I actually kinda like it
7:46 PM
@mbomb007 would it help to put the actual match in a lookaround?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ well you're on windows so it's probably different from what I'm seeing
cheddar> 1 ? 2 : 3
            throw err;

TypeError: Cannot read property 'toString' of undefined
> TypeError
nailed it
i am on windows and i find it ugly ._.
we need a room for all the pokemon go bs discussion.
@Downgoat oh. just like the cheddar bs one?
7:53 PM
@Optimizer it's just gen 1 :|
@Optimizer ;_; y lama so mean
@Optimizer Where you getting those?
@Optimizer but seriously this should go in like The Bridge rather than TNB
7:56 PM
sorry, i dont have any rivers to cross
2 pics and u get so hyped up while all u post here is about useless uninteresting things from cheddar
@Optimizer ;_;
github.com/tuxcrafting/your-mom more helpful error messages 10/10
:D :D :D best error message
your mom is an error message?
no it's a programming language
7:59 PM
@Optimizer no it's a golfing language not an error message
a WIP golf lang
really WIP
wide internet protocol?
So ... your mom is a work in progress?
