Q: using arrays and comment on code

ryanThe problem was pretty straightforward and used two simple algorithms from our examples; the one for computing the sum, and the one for counting matches. The array for the problem wasn't provided, but you can easily write a method around it without actually having it, since she gave us the name a...

Q: Javascript dates validators - improvement

franchezI have some code which works fine. First, it checks that dates format are valid and then, checks that first date is lower than second date. I had to use free input text and custom validator because multiple date formats are supported such as quarter number (2014 Q1) etc. But I find my code too l...

Q: How to optimize the code while searching the items in multiple arrays?

user2809564Currently I have 5 sorted arrays and they all are size of 3. And I am trying to search for single element in each of the 5 arrays (or its predecessor, if it doesn't exist). Obviously, I can binary search each array individually, which will result in O(k log n) where k is number of sorted arrays....

 
@Vogel612 which one?
 
5:15 PM
the older one...
 
I'm not fond of that answer....
 
@Vogel612 sorry to be a party-pooper, but editing OP's code (Question) is a no-no on CR - things like indentation and code formatting can be part of a review, so we systematically reject these edit suggestions.
I'd be surprised to see that last one approved ;)
rejected ^^
 
@Mat'sMug he's a 1 rep user. i am prepared to take a bet the code looks like the edited version in the IDE..
 
> ChrisW reviewed this 55 secs ago: Reject
don't reformat the OP's code, which (including the format) is to be reviewed
 
besides most likely even you are to accept that premise of an answer it should probably be a struct.....*cough*
 
5:19 PM
yea... I just realized I automatically moved the comments to the lines before the relevant lines and not left them appended..
but OP also writes something about that he would refactor this if he were to write it 'for real'...
damn I really want to flag this..
but I have no clue as what..
 
Hi IKEA-Coder!
(I should really stop that)
hey @SimonAndréForsberg :)
 
don't make fun of the swedish..
they have such pretty girls up there
 
true
 
and the nature is amazing
was canooing and camping there last late summer..
 
@Vogel612 you are right, without an actual "real" implementation we are designing an application not reviewing an implementation... although it is a hard distinction to draw...
also the flag is a big plus :P

I was being facetious , i thought we were making fun of the swiss :(

Hi, @Mat'sMug
 
@konijn or anyone else, what do you think of this answer? Seems to be a bit of a non-sequitur.
 
@SimonAndréForsberg it just tremendously reminded me of the german anti-alcohol campaign
 
5:26 PM
@Vogel612 I think such a campaign can never be emphasized enough, really.
 
FWIW me too, but the resemblance was so uncanny i just couln't resist
 
@200_success probably not the best answer, but is it wrong?
not really a review either... but @konijn would indeed probably be the best to tell here
 
Good I'm getting to know how to make good (I guess) edit for post
 
@Marc-Andre yeah just saw that - Jamal put his grain of salt though ;)
 
@Mat'sMug Yeah but my grammar in English is not that good, I knew it was wrong but didn't know what was good :S
 
5:33 PM
@Marc-Andre you might want to check out English Language & Usage
gotta love magic links!!
 
Thanks for the link, and will look at it.
 
19 chat users!
And no ex-famous dictators.
 
So, according to Grace Note, it seems we're still not ready. :-/ Well, at least no one (I think) is setting everyone on fire and setting out bear traps.
 
@Simon who are you playing at?
 
@Vogel612: Long story.
 
5:38 PM
@Jamal Well, honestly... I don't think we're in a rush to graduate, are we?
 
No, we're not, but I just want to be assured that we cannot fail to stay online. That'd be far worse.
And it seems we're doing just fine with staying active.
 
@Jamal you're late ;)
exploding bear traps
 
The only way for CR to go offline is for the StackExchange network to crash.
 
@Mat'sMug: And don't bother trying to set me on fire. My diamond makes me flame-retardant. :-)

yeah, but you're special: in the chatroom on day one, avid user on day one, with a [badge:mortarboard] ..on day one. Future? Full of promises :)
 
@Mat'sMug that's just 'cause I got me the assoc.bonus running and found 2 relatively simple zombies to shoot
 
5:45 PM
and that you showed up here.
55 more points for another rep-cap. (me)
 
well I guess the killcam helped quite a lot ;)
 
and that you know the memes on day one.

well the post on that is simple and comprehensive..
 
and that you bothered to browse our meta site..
ya know, if only all new users did that on day 1..
 
@Mat'sMug Association bonus don't count for Mortarboard

well it's kind of awkward, I thought the question was best fit for SO, but maybe it's meant for CR, but it has so many points on SO again and activity that it should better stay there
 
5:54 PM
this would be a candidate for crossover-posting: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/199989/…
 
Nice answer! This would be the kind of answers we give on Code Review, feel free to join us if you enjoyed writing this answer :) — retailcoder 6 secs ago

would it be allowed to repost that question from SO to CR? but then in a more reviewish-style instead of asking-how-to-do-it-style?
 
@skiwi well it's less of a repost then.. you might wanna read this post on that topic: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/65931/…
 
6:30 PM
@Vogel612 - how do I say this and get it to sound right.... CodeReview is a place people sometimes bring their crap code to, that they know is crap, and that they are already embarrassed about.... Looking for ways to say: hey, this is code, I am not proud of it, but I am not sure how to make it better. (not all questions are like this, but some are)
 
ummm. what are you referring to exactly?
 
Sometimes people can be 'sensitive'....., and you have to be a bit careful with things like:
this schema makes me shiver.. — Vogel612 2 hours ago
It's true ....
and, in this case, I think the comment is 'fine'...
but the idea is to help, not pass judgement
For some people, coming to CR is like going to AA ....
X: Hi My name is X, I have crap code.
All: Hey X, yes, your code is crap
X: Well, duh, that's why I am here.
 
Point taken
<-- still has to work on human interaction a lot
 
Let me dig up something to put it in perspective ... will take me a minute or two ;-)
Don't get me wrong, you never crossed a line with that comment....
but spidey senses got tingling, that's all.
 
Does having 10,000+ inactive & long-gone "avid" users (150-200) from the Dark Ages of CR (haven't counted them, really - just assuming) mean we have to compensate with 10,000+ brand new fresh active avid users to make up? How much is the Dark Ages (2011-2012, early 2013) affecting [non-]graduation? We've addressed the unanswered zombies, but we really have no way of addressing zombified users... Yeah, a quick look says we have 30K+ users, but... what's the picture like if we factor out zombie users that hasn't visited in, say, a year's time? — Mat's Mug 8 secs ago
^^ thoughts?
 
6:42 PM
@Mat'sMug Good point. That's my thought.
And also: Are we in a rush to graduate? We're 100% certain that we won't get closed.
 
We're not. But if graduation is being delayed based on biased numbers, it's just ...not fair.
I'm sure our "bottom-heavy" userbase isn't as "bottom-heavy" as the numbers make it look like.
If CR would have entered public beta in October 2013, we'd probably be a graduated site by now.
 
6:56 PM
and I'm out-of-vote!
 
fighter pilots call that: Winchester ;)
 
Thanks @Santa!
@MatsMug We check absentee values on all levels across a number of reputation levels. Though you don't have remotely to deal with 10,000 zombies. In terms of avid users, you have 2337 in the bracket from 150 and higher rep. Of them, only 1001 have been seen in the past month, with 98 of those being in the 1k+ bracket. That's basically 10% for the month. If we look at users who visited some time in the past 6 months, it's more like 7% (115 1k+ users out of 1685 qualifying users). — Grace Note 2 mins ago

^^^ Not sure how to feel about this one
 
looks like a XY problem. Answer is generally Z.
Those are always hard to close with a good reason... yet they're definitely off-topic.
 
Maybe a custom reason ?

@amon was faster
I chose "Primarily opinion-based"
 
And looks like he chose a custom reason : Other: This question appears to be off-topic because it is not asking for a code review.

Hey! :D
 
Het Grace!
We causing some ripples in SE land ;-) (or did you just bring us a supply of bear-traps?)
 
The only ripples you've caused so far are creating smiles.

I dropped by because I figured that people have been poking me a lot so I figure it may be easier in some cases for direct responses here than making this gigantic comment chain.
@konijn We only save one draft on the main and one draft on the meta per user.
 
Hmm, that is perhaps something that should be brought up on MSO, though I can understand why.
Seems you caught us in a quiet moment ;-)
 
@GraceNote sorry for the poking.. @rolfl I was notified the second you posted that query. Got my +1 ;)
 
7:47 PM
@Mat'sMug No worries about the poke.
 
Can you tell I love the mug I won during WB2013? :)
 
Oh, Grace is here.

Yeah, thanks. I didn't feel old enough already!
 
You know me, always happy to help :)
 
If you adjust the query to account for activity in the past 4 months (since the review), then compare us against something like :
CodeReview: http://data.stackexchange.com/codereview/query/171444/distribution-of-avid-users-by-reputation-tier?SeenInMonths=4
WorkPlace: http://data.stackexchange.com/workplace/query/171444/distribution-of-avid-users-by-reputation-tier?SeenInMonths=4
AskUbuntu: http://data.stackexchange.com/askubuntu/query/171444/distribution-of-avid-users-by-reputation-tier?SeenInMonths=4
Shows an interesting picture
 
7:56 PM
indeed
 
"Do note, however, that you'll also take a blow to the number of direct editors. That's probably more valuable." - We'd still have @Jamal, wouldn't we? I don't see how the number of direct editors could change then.
 
We compare well against code-golf as well: data.stackexchange.com/codegolf/query/171444/…
 
So we get like 100 users from the 500's to the 1K's and call it a day right?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I was merely meaning that there's a lot affected by rep changes, and I felt that I wouldn't really be concerned about the number of people closing as much as the number of people being able to edit. It's not to say that the change is going to be what stops anything, but considering there already is voiced concern about the rep level changes, it looks like a point of concern.
@Mat'sMug Well, we want people in the 500-1000 range as well, so to speak.
 
Grace, to a point... I'm sitting pretty, but, in fairness, no-one wants to lose their privilidges.
At the moment, everyone will.
I think the numbers are flawed in the sense that none of our avid-user queries hit the 20K barrier.... let me fix that.
 
8:01 PM
Oh, hey, Grace Note!
 
(monkey goes and serial-upvotes Loki)
 
@GraceNote I totally understand, I was just using the @Jamal = Editor meme :) (sometimes, he does feel like our only one. We need more editors overall. I'm also a bit bad in editing posts sometimes)
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I hadn't known there was a meme about that.
 
haha we even coined "@Jamalized"
 
Hah
 
8:03 PM
@Mat'sMug ... actually, click all the links above, again.... then all thave the 20K threshold added.
 
@Grace the meta post is quite comprehensive.
 
Geez... don't SE employees study site-specific memes during work hours? :)
 
♪dream job♪
 
I imagine, that if I got a job at SE, I would spend my days writing pretty SQL reports.
 
my SQL is waay to flawed and basic for that..

@Vogel612 Doesn't include Jamalized.
 
but hey, learning site-specific memes in less than a day??
I can do that

@Vogel612 “The bird that joined just today”?
 
@GraceNote: On another note: do you all perform any kind of pro-tem review, private or public? As I may be in this position for a while, I'd still like to make sure I'm still in check (such as monitoring my moderation action log). I haven't received any serious complaints yet (obviously I'll still make some mistakes here and there), so I suppose not much will need to be said. This also has to do with what I believe Tim has told you regarding the site's collective diamond moderation.
 
@rolf your traps don't scare me. 'cuz I believe I can flyyyyyyyyy
 
@Jamal - you want me to start complaining so the SE folk pay you some more attention?

Aww, I can't review that right now...
 
@GraceNote: Cool. Please keep me posted on that (general moderation, at least). If any of that is too private, you may post it in our mod room.

@Vogel612 - you posted the edit link, not the query link: data.stackexchange.com/german/query/171444/…
 
just corrected right now ;)

@Marc-Andre shit happens. You have a grace period to re-edit the same suggested edit (unless that has changed recently)
 
@Mat'sMug Everyone was real proud to see this. I think that you guys made a summary-and-analysis-and-what-to-do-moving-forward thread like that is a good sign of how much you guys are dedicated to making this work.

Yep, I'm about to hit 365 consecutive...
 
8:34 PM
When I look back at November, and remember that @Jamal had like 1.2K rep, @Malachi & I had just above 500, and I look at where we are today, I can't help but think the whole site is on the same trend.

@Jamal - can you look in to the precognitive answer questions: [Precognitive Answers](http://data.stackexchange.com/codereview/query/171088/precognitive-answers)
(This came up when I was looking in to AskUbuntu, and they have [seriously precognitive answers](http://data.stackexchange.com/askubuntu/query/171088/precognitive-answers) )

A: Refactor foreach statement to LINQ

Mat's MugLINQ isn't a silver bullet. It stands for Language-INtegrated-Query, which allows querying objects. Querying objects isn't something that's supposed to have side-effects. However this is precisely what you loop's body is doing. Therefore, refactoring it to use LINQ, if at all possible, would ma...

 
@Mat'sMug Good answer, I would just add a documentation link to Task

He spent a week on it trying to get it to work... finally I get a phone call: All he could get was low-quality signal 480i, until he found the network cable was flakey.... he was ready to ship the system back to source when he tried it 'one-last-time' and it was glorious HD on a different cable.

@SimonAndréForsberg - you did see his comment, right?
I like the efficiency of this class and the fact it doesn't require me to change any of the other code in the project. I did however add public Vector2D getFront(Vector2D vec) { return new Vector2D(this.forwards_x(vec.getX()), this.forwards_y(vec.getY()));}... as I liked 200_success's naming convention, the simplicity and it didn't have any noticable drop in performance. — Sam Martin 9 hours ago

I am actually not sure I will answer that question at all. He posted it on a bad time, when I was asleep!
 
♪ (whistles)
 
And when I woke up it had 5 answers already

your eland has them more oriented like the face.
and that antelope has 'em more like a cow.
 
 
they might be a little small, or is it just me?
 
They stand as tall as me.
wingspan 6'7"

@skiwi gotta love the physics engines.
 
This is a software chat room. We don't care about no steenken physics.
 
physics are awesome to program
and to test
same for AI
 
and to watch fail
 
the fails are awesome
 
9:19 PM
Hmm. A view, but nowhere to be found is the SQL to create the view. Not very helpful.
 
@Donald what are you referring to?
 
@Vogel612 Work. New feature for the archive.
 
ssh it means you need to create that view
 
Bye all!
 
@Jamal about your closing concerns as a mod: you could always do like you do now and post them in here (chat) so we can close them, no?
@Marc-Andre see ya!
 
9:25 PM
@skiwi It already exists. But the source directories don't contain any .sql files where it is created.
 
@Mat'sMug: yes, I can keep doing that. I also feel that, after graduation, we shouldn't rely on chat for having questions closed.
 
ah, always great, can't you show create view then @Donald.McLean
 
@Jamal no, but all it takes is 1 close vote for it to show up in the review queues, no?
 
@skiwi It's a problem for another day.
 
Yes, or one flag.
 
9:27 PM
well i gotta go, gn people
 
then it's not "relying" on chat, rather "making it quickly visible to users that can act upon it".. IMO
@skiwi bye!
 
I'm off to the grocery store and home myself. Take care, all!

Q: Find an element from multiple sorted lists efficiently?

user2809564I have k sorted arrays, each of size n. Currently I have hard coded 5 sorted arrays each of size 3 but in general that is configurable. I would like to search for single element in each of the k arrays (or its predecessor, if it doesn't exist). Obviously I can binary search each array individu...

 
Eh, maybe I'm just being paranoid, hence my request to Grace Note regarding my moderation.
 
@Donald.McLean later!
@Jamal you are ;)
 
9:29 PM
I hope so. :-) Better to do that than to keep doing things I shouldn't.
 
@Donald.McLean Bye!
 
And we have some invalidation going on here. I'll need to leave soon, so someone else can take care of it.

@Mat'sMug Bye!
 
@GraceNote thanks for showing up on CR today, we really appreciate your feedback - you're more than welcome here anytime you like (that does include out-of-office time as applicable - you're addicted to SE as well aren't you? ;)

Q: Print distance between two points by invoking distance on one point and sending in the other

Q: Tokenizing string using strtok

ntoskrnlIn this assignment, I'm supposed to split a string using strtok. (The assignment consists of the comment and the function definition; I fill in the function body.) It works as far as I've tested. But it seems a little ugly to me. Perhaps it's my Java background, but somehow this just doesn't fee...
