goto is that screwdriver in your toolbox with the really weirdly-shaped head. It should only come out of the box when you have the really weirdly-shaped screw. And even the it may be easier to find a way to use a regular screw. In the real world of programming, it's often harder to get a goto through a code review, even when it's used perfectly and you can prove it, than it is to deal with the clunkier alternative. For one thing, someone will try to replace the goto and totally <expletive deleted> things up sooner or later. — user4581301 1 min ago

@Peilonrayz FYI, this (10k+) would work in C++, not in C.
C has no vectors and no real classes (you hack hack something together but it won't be pretty).
It's a really terrible language for voxels in this day and age.
Structs, bitshifting and masking are probably the way to go.

@Peilonrayz If it has only been a couple of questions so far... Just close it if it's not suitable.
 
@Mast I don't see how it wouldn't work. At it's very core it's just n arrays stored in a struct with a function that you always pass that "class struct" to, like self in Python. You then index these arrays with mem-whatever and build the desired struct as the return.
 
@Peilonrayz Whoever reviewed them was with more than 1 and they didn't agree.
Say a VLQ that has 1 saying Deletion and another Looks OK. IIUC.
@Peilonrayz Well, yes, it's absolutely possible to do in C. It's just a pain and it won't be with vectors and classes. That's what I'm saying.
Everything can be done in C.

Where in Python there should be preferably only 1 way to do something, in C there are tens to thousands and half of them are undefined behaviour.

I suggest posting this to codereview.stackexchange.com ; there are several things that could be improved. For example, you use a boolean variable state as the condition for your while loop, but then you never change the value of state, and end up having to break out of the loop with break. You also have a variable called restart which looks like it wants to be the loop condition, but it is not. The continue statement is not doing anything here, as it is at the end of the loop body, and loops always continue by default. — Stef 23 secs ago

I have submitted the code on codereview.stackexchange.com. Yeah, I know there was no need to use state, I could have just used True, I forgot to edit that before submitting the question. The restart variable is used to reach the continue statement, the first break statement is used to break out of the for loop so continue is not a part of the for loop but is a part of the while loop, we could have avoided using is by using if not restart: and then using board[int(input_list[0])][int(input_list[1])] = current_player and then break. — Divyanshu Siwach 19 secs ago

"The Moon is made of green cheese" is a statement referring to a fanciful belief that the Moon is composed of cheese.

It is widespread as a folkloric motif among many of the world's cultures, and the notion has also found its way into children's folklore and modern popular culture.

@pacmaninbw Ugh, it's so complicated. >:( I may not be able to close this one with y'all because I don't understand C and I don't understand why it's MRC.
 
@Peilonrayz First nodeArray is a global array of something, but it isn't clear what that something is. Possibly it is an array of pointers but that isn't clear. In the first version of the function check searchNode is assigned a value from nodeArray and at the end of the function the memory assigned to searchNode is deleted, however, there is nothing that invalidates that node in nodeArray.
This means that invalid memory ca be accessed somewhere else in the program by accessing nodeArray.
Without the declarations of nodeArray and searchNode this code is completely meaningless.
Both variables are global variables that are not declared within the scope of the function.
This code is dangerous, it could very easily break the program anywhere.
@Peilonrayz Look at the @vnp comment as well.
 
7:44 PM
@pacmaninbw I already read that.
 
@DerKommissar Nice to see you around.
 
So in short, nodeArray is an unknown type and searchNode is not deassigned data.

I don't understand why you need to know the type. I may have missed it but I don't see where you said why you need this. Why do you need this?
I don't understand the comment about invalid memory is that because of searchNode not being deleted?
 
The memory is being deleted, but there are still pointers to it in the nodeArray that are not being set to NULL.
 
Ok I think I get that.

8:02 PM
@pacmaninbw I don't know of any metas about it. I'd just leave it we don't really have a close reason for it either.
 
@Peilonrayz It's C, not Python. Types are hugely important.
@pacmaninbw We don't rate code, but we can review it.
Heck, we do pure HTML.
 
@Mast Thank you.
 
@Mast Well I don't know why so I'm not going to VTC. And given you legit say "Types are hugely important" in Python I really don't see it.
 
@Peilonrayz Python does duck-typing. C is really picky, will accept a lot of things it really shouldn't and minor details will screw you over royally.
That's one of the reasons me and pacman expect more details in questions overall. We're used to getting bit by very minor-looking details.
 
@Mast You are given a protocol / interface with the code. Can you give an example of the "minor details will screw you over royally"? I don't see why if you follow the same protocol you'll get snake-bit
 
8:08 PM
@Peilonrayz That's ok, there are a lot of Python questions I don't vote on for the same reason.
 
@Peilonrayz You can't optimize a C interface without knowing what it's interfacing against. Decoupling is not something C is known for, it wasn't invented yet.
 
You've not explained why.
 
@Peilonrayz Among other things the size of a struct really matters for alignment reasons, and you can't know the size of the struct without seeing the declaration. The alignment can corrupt other data in the function or even on the stack.
 
It's hard to explain why if you haven't ran into some really stupid cases of undefined behaviour yourself. There are also a lot of optimization benefits that are only possible if the sizes and types are just right.
In Python, you trust the interpreter and the interpreter is pretty smart.
In C, you can't trust anything, the compiler is stupid, the linker is stupid and they all want to kill you.
Yet they won't mention it while they do.

I killed my OS once because an address was off by a zero.
 
@pacmaninbw Wouldn't you know the size if the OP already did that? Wouldn't you be not working against the given interface (from the code)
 
Just because the interface appears to work, doesn't mean it should even work.
 
@Peilonrayz Not necessarily, that's what we are trying to tell you.
 
There are a lot of posts on SO about people looking for explanations on behaviour where they're basically told "Well, you got away with UB up till now, but your code really wasn't supposed to work without also ding this, this and this."
All environments are all slightly different from each other...
 
8:16 PM
@Mast Ok, that makes much more sense.
 
In C you can cast a pointer to any type you want to, it is very dangerous.
 
Yeah if the interface is actually UB then I can understand why my POV of "it's just an interface" wouldn't work.
 
Yeah, there is no contract programming in C, it was invented later for more OO type languages.
 
What do you mean by "contract programming".
 
What you call an "interface" or an API.
There is a contract implied in that.
 
8:22 PM
Models and Viewers were still a dream when C came around.
 
Keep in mind, C was basically a somewhat platform-agnostic version of assembler languages with support for relatively high-level functions.
Nothing more.
 
So true.
 
It was very good at what it did, at the time, but it's ancient compared to Python.
 
Yes, but Python is written in it generally.

There are still a couple of areas where C is relevant, but in Desktop programming? It's often not even close to the best language for the job.
