Q: Output visual diagram of picture

George HarrisWrite a program that inputs the dimensions of a painting, the matting width, and the frame width for a framed portrait. The program should output a diagram using the symbol ‘X ’ for the painting, ‘+’ for the matting, and ‘# ’ for the framing. The symbols must be space-separated. INPUT: 3 2 1 2 (...

@NewSandboxedPosts I like butter
@Mego What's that? A bot being put out of it's job! Better put some comedic edits to it so it can get a new job as a comedian?
Oh wait, you already did that

First attempt at golfing, will be improved soon. Explanation coming soon! a is width, b is height, c is matte width, an...

I just feel so golfy inside when I use Python 3.8 :=

cor i just found out about := from that answer
this is the best solution to assignment as an expression, just have a separate operator thats clearly assignment
really happy about that
 
@quartata Surprised it took you so long, that was like a really big thing
So big Guido quit over it, even
 
lol
@Pavel i dont pay a whole lot of attention to peps
 
Something about not ever wanting to stress so much over pushing through obviously useful features
. o O ( Meanwhile, in Perl land, the last useful feature was added 5 years ago and is still experimental, sub signatures )
 
6:20 AM
@Pavel didn't he quit back in 2013
@Pavel perl 5?
 
@ASCII-only 2013 is when he joined Dropbox but no he quit python in 2018
 
@quartata the other operator is assignment too :P
@Pavel O_o
 
@ASCII-only Perl 6 may have a lot more features being added more quickly, but I'd contest them being 'useful' :P
 
6:32 AM
very random, but... for uni i have to collect information but have absolutely no idea who to interview so... link to google form
 
> Did you stay up late yesterday?
My answer to this will become yes if I stay up for 30 more minutes
 
:P (my parents are very strict though, so I sleep at ~11pm every day. wonder if that counts as late)
 
I think it does

You should calculate the relative ...

@mınxomaτ not quite the same thing but still fun to play around with (using GANs): gandissect.res.ibm.com/ganpaint.html

So here is a series of challenges around permutations (reshuffelings) of all positive numbers. This is the second challenge in this series. The first challenge can be found h...

@PhiNotPi Congratulations, you deserve it!

@DJMcMayhem maybe C(++) isn't smart enough, even C usually requires size specifiers

It just hit me what I was missing from that code - the %d conversion. Maybe boost is trying to be too clever for its own good?
