for (int outerArrayIndex = 0; outerArrayIndex < random2dIntArray.length; outerArrayIndex++)
I think that iterating variable name is overkill naming
Maybe outerIdx would be just fine and easier to read
 
just i works too
 
But I have another for loop nested, and I don't really want to use i and j

I've started working on yet another obscure sorting algorithm. Fun times.
 
@Morwenn Just how many ways of sorting are there?
 
@Phrancis Probably an infinity.
 
Blech
 
@Morwenn you really ought to write papers. like proofs suck and everything, but seriously.
@Phrancis does a sort of all sorts contain itself?
 
12:12 AM
@Quill I just copied the implementation from a paper describing it and optimized it a bit.
I don't know what I would write a paper about.
 
I'm sure you're versed enough to write one on sorting algos. Even if it's just an optimised version of another algo
like the papers that make it into journals these days are just... wow
 
I might play around with this sorting algo: Fisher–Yates shuffle
 
The optimizations are really specific to the implementation; they have little value from an algorithmic point of view.
> Using Collections to shuffle an array of primitive types is a bit of an overkill...
Proceeds to implement a shuffling agorithm.
Haha, wat. Seriously.
 
Mine's an array of objects (arrays of primitives)
Maybe that won't work
 
I guess a Fisher-Yates is simple enough to implement for anything. I don't see why it wouldn't work with objects.
 
12:21 AM
This is not the Fisher-Yates shuffle. This is called Durstenfeld shuffle. The original fisher-yates shuffle runs in O(n^2) time which is extremely slow. — Pacerier Oct 31 '14 at 12:39
sounds like a dance move
 
Oh, I guess I only knew the Knuth version then.
Another solution is to associate a random index i to every element n and sort the collection of pairs on the index. It will effectively shuffle the collection.
 
I really ought to read TACP

Algorithms sound complicated
 
Some of them are really simple. Other are too clever for their own good.
 
Hmm, maybe I could create a small array of random integers, then just sort them based on the random value
 
A few ones look short and simple but you don't understand them.
@Phrancis Why not use a simple Fisher-Yates? It's O(n) while sorting is almost never O(n), often O(n log n) and sometimes O(n²).

@Duga Is this okay? The OP isn't asking for a new review.
 
@Phrancis Yes. Without the fancy xor swap.
 
Okay, I'll try that
Using a temp holder variable is better then?
 
The xor swap only works for integers and has some quirks.
 
Ahh

Also, most of the time, a temporary integer will cost almost nothing or will be optimized away.
 
@Morwenn The wikipedia page says Fisher-Yates in O(n^2)
 
@Quill Yeah, the original, but every implementation you will find is actually the Knuth version.

Holy mother of Java... this works
 
post for insta-review
 
@Phrancis What?
 
@Phrancis Why are people surprised when it's working?
 
@rolfl Yesterday, I found an old research paper about a heapsort derivative with some strange heap structures and an algorithm description in pseudo-code. I translated it to C++ and it didn't work. Then I changed a few things based on wild guesses and at some point it worked but I couldn't explain why because I didn't understand the algorithm. It's a case where you can be genuinely surprised that it's working.
 
1:04 AM
@rolfl I'm not surprised when "it" is working, I'm mostly surprised when code that I write is working :)
 
That or when you feel that something will improve your algorithm but it's nothing more than a feel and it works.
Anyway, I'm going to sleep. See you another day :)

Night @Morwenn - and, yes, I have experienced those OMG moments..... Like "Holy crap, what did I do to make it actually work?"
 
1:34 AM
If I were him, I would have left the original up - he is hardly recognizable.
 
I think I'm ready to post my Q and be subjected to being pointed out that I have a lot left to learn :)
 
I keep seeing posts where there are just off coding mannerisms where people are doing odd things they don't need to in order to keep the characters per line down. The couple of questions I have answered I touch on it. Now I see lots of the posts in my tag are just the same. I don't want to put the same text in every post about it.
Then I found this meta.codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/5237/… where the accepted answer discusses making a canonical post. Which the poster also did make such a post.
After 6 months does that sentiment still hold here?
Can I make some q&a posts to cover the simple things I would find myself referencing all the time?
 
@Matt Looks like that never was really acted upon... May be best to bring it up on Meta again, I think, if you feel some actions should be taken based on that
At the same time, I also (personally) feel, after giving it some thought, that canonical answers may be good to save reviewers' time, but may not always be applicable/relevant to the reviewee's question
 
@Phrancis That last point might be true. While I am new here I have seen a few times paraphrased versions of "We are here to review all the code" (hopefully not using that out of context). While I doubt presentation is ever the focus it never hurt to mention it.
 
1:52 AM
@Matt One way I look at it is, if reviewing code came down to applying specific rules, we would have programmed a computer to do that long ago
(and we have, where applicable)
 
I will bring it up in Meta. Wasnt sure if it would be a good idea since of not but seems like the best course of action.
 
^^ I agree
 
@Phrancis True. There should be a happy medium between strict and sloppy. The main reason I am even thinking about this is I keep seeing people using line continuation characters when there is no need to. Makes editing code a pain.
 
I had a similar thought about PHP-MySQL questions not using PDO, but, I talked myself out of trying to make a canonical post
Not quite the same thing, though. Your concerns may be completely valid in your context

Technically this is not a 2D array, it's a jagged array (or array-of-arrays). — EBrown 1 min ago
 
@Phrancis Not particularly. It's actually a very important distinction.
 
2:34 AM

A jagged array is an array of additional arrays, any of which can be any size. A 2D (or multidimensional) array has the same number of elements in each direction.
 
Please put that in an answer then!

Well I played CoD II -> MW -> World at War -> MW2 -> Black Ops -> MW3 -> Advanced Warfare -> Black Ops III.
 
@Paul, thanks for the advice. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. If I need advice from coding style, or small changes, code review is good place.

A: Extract Excel data using Interop.Excel from C#

Mat's Mug The workbook I'm using to test my code has one worksheet which uses the Excel columns A through CO and uses rows 1 through 11361, so I don't expect it to be too blazing fast [...] Cell CO11361, in R1C1 notation, is R11361C93. You're reading the value of 1,056,573 cells, through COM interop.....

 
It's a cop game, and as long as you keep that in mind while you play it, it's great; but, if you play it expecting it to be like past Battlefield games, you'll be disappointed
 
@Matt I play BF4 on PC.
@Phrancis I played the beta (one of them) for Hardline and didn't like it at all. (But to each his own.)
Anyway, Black Ops III is installed, back in a bit.
 
@quill Stories are good and all but those games are pure multiplayer experience for me.
 
Yeah, there's not a whole lot of grey area with Hardline

But, the gameplay is great, as long as you agree to not judge it on past Battlefield titles' merits
It also has a really good storyline, with actual personable characters instead of "generic soldier X"
OK, I'm done here on games
 
hey @Phrancis how come you have generate return an int[][] when it gets called like a void

Also, I didn't quite realize that a 2D array is supposed to have same number of elements in the second dimension (wouldn't that make it a matrix?)

Q: How do we feel about canonical post for repeat review concepts?

MattI had started to write a question where I felt I was just going to repeat myself in reviews. Well I've been in the city since I was two and I certainly wouldn't say that I was stuck in a rut... stuck in a rut ... stuck in a rut... stuck in a rut... There are things that I have been seeing ...

 
I had another poll-ish question... Do you guys feel like you learn more about the respective languages you review?
 
Yeah, definitely. Sometimes we are commented by other people saying we can improve our reviews even! Reviewing the reviews, lol! But yeah, reviewing definitely helps the skill of the reviewer too
 
There is still so much too learn. Reviewing can certainly take more effort than an SO post. At some point I suppose it is a matter of picking an choosing which question to review.

and also, which points you want to point out
using namespace std; would be the "canonical example" of something people point out all the time

3:54 AM
I know, but AFAIK the thing automatically scales. It was that size too when the ads were 220x250
 
photos automagically scale thanks to html, but they should be created at the dimensions required
a 4000x4000 photo will scale to 250x250, if you set the html attributes to be that
In theory, it shouldn't be too hard to rewrite

tbh I cant think of a question right now

I will think of one
 
you can always answer one :)
 
I am afraid I'm not experienced enough
Don't want to get downvoted for bs answer ^^
 
You've been put on hold here. So, if you do get approval, you might post it on pastebin [or equiv]. Then, send me a comment here, I'll be glad to have a look (e.g. download, build, disassemble, run). I have special custom tools to do performance analysis. This is what I do for a living [R/T, embed, kernel/driver, etc.] where performance is critical. Chances are pretty good I can eyeball it. Also, if you can post the code, consider reasking question on codereview.stackexchange.comCraig Estey 45 secs ago
 
@Duga Hilarious, that anyone would expect to get a useful answer out of that question.

I made a change yesterday after my boss suggested and now I've had to revert it because it is incorrect but I have no paper trail showing that he told me to change it :( RIP

@Käsebrot You don't have to review everything about a question. Pick something you know something about (say, variable naming, or readability/whitespace/indenting), then go look through the tag and you'll probably find something you can improve.

Personally I only attribute if I rip solutions entirely
 
@DanPantry don't you use a versioning system?
 
aaand it's at -150
 
@chillworld We do.... versioning system doesn't stop devs being silly and doing the same thing in a slightly different way in two different places
