Excellent question. Don't get discouraged--you might be able to rephrase it and possibly re-target it at the code review site or something. Man I hate SO Mods, they are absolutely the worst thing about a good site, it doesn't surprise me at all that new users are discouraged here. — Bill K 51 secs ago
12:47 AM
@BillK Generic Best Practices are off-topic on Code Review Stack Exchange so posting the question there wouldn't be a good idea. Such questions are off-topic because it's common to get comments like "but my code does x, and your y best practice sucks there". If you know a couple of languages; you should be able to see how arbitrary 'best practices' are. — Peilonrayz 20 secs ago

Q: Most efficient way to track a collection of targets in range of a source object

wilderness26In my game there are space ships and each of these space ships tracks which other ships are in range of it. I need to perform certain logic when a target ship comes in range of another ship, and certain logic when the target ship leaves the range of the ship. I am looking for advice on the most p...

This is a good fit for Code Review especially given the open-ended nature of the question and you are encouraging discussion and advice. I would however suggest that any performance gains would be found in the InRange implementation which you have not included here. It would also help to post some metrics around how long this method takes for different common inputs. Don't blindly pre-emptively optimize code, use a metric based targeted approach. — Chris Schaller 48 secs ago

Q: C# PRNG class based on xoshiro256**

MichaelSBackground I'm creating a (probably bad) map-generation utility in C# to generate fractal terrain and similar. Nothing I do probably needs special treatment, but I thought it best to start with a good source of random values. My understanding is that C# only has two built-in sources of random num...

I.e. the code does not generate an error and the verification of the generated signature is successful. That should be in the question! But what is the problem then? The code seems to be OK. If it is about a code review, there is a dedicated site for this: codereview.stackexchange.com. — Topaco just now

This may be more suitable for code review. One thing that should be mentioned - the list comprehension will iterate over the whole list, even if you know there is only one element that satisfy the condition, i.e. no short-circuit. @enke answer is better in that respect — buran 57 secs ago

I do not need code review. It is not about code quality, I need to know if the way I applied the SignData method is correct. It seems correct, but I cannot rely on seems correct when working with cryptography. — jakubiszon 9 secs ago
My point is, this not the right site for a code review. How your code looks is irrelevant here. Apart from allocations there will be negligible performance issues unless this on a hot path in a massively scaled environment. Additionally there a no metrics to answer your question Apart from id like it to be silky smooth. Likely the whole solution and problem should be rethought and could be better, who knows? The short of this being, is if you want a code review talk to your senior developers or see the code review site ) — TheGeneral 33 secs ago

If this code works, it's likely for it to be more appropriate for either Rust forum (users.rust-lang.org) or for Code Review Stack Exchange. If it doesn't, the question should state the problem exactly, otherwise it is simply unclear. — Cerberus 45 secs ago
I'm not a fan of the way you did your curly braces each on their own line, I usually put the starting brace on the same line as the function declaration or expression. But that is a person style choice. Your HTML also looks a bit weird but that could be a formatting issue on StackOverflow itself. That said, this question is off-topic.

@rob when suggesting users post on CR it would be great if there was also a suggestion like "Please read the relevant help center pages like 'What topics can I ask about here?' and 'How do I ask a good question?".

Also your ad hominem statement “if you're programming for linux users you wouldn't be trying to provide info from a windows perspective anyway” is completely false as I, assuming I am aware of respective issue, would definitely point this out in code review and teaching if there is ever any chance that the resulting may be run cross-platform (i.e. just about always). <sarcasm>After all, the person in question may have would up on StackOverflow after searching for “file creation time” and gone “oh the C in ctime is for creation” after quickly skimming over your answer.</sarcasm> — ntninja 42 secs ago
