Q: Simplifying casting in my C/C++ qsort char** comparator function

Alex ReynoldsI have a comparator function I use with qsort to sort an array of char* (i.e., char**), which compiles with current versions of Clang and GCC without giving errors or warnings: static int comparator(const void* a, const void* b) { #ifdef __cplusplus auto a_recast = const_cast<void *>(a); ...

@CaptainObvious @Phrancis isn't the last code block the code they actually want reviewed?
looked like real code the first time I looked at it
 
@Malachi You mean this?
DECLARE @query NVARCHAR(MAX);

SELECT @query = ISNULL(@query+', ','') + [name]
                FROM  sys.columns
                WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID('TableName')
                AND  [name] != 'PK';

SET @query = N'SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE COALESCE('+ @query +') IS NULL';

EXECUTE(@query)
 
yeah.
he doesn't use it for the same table every time
but it's a script that he uses to perform a task
right?
 
I suppose it's real code, there's not much to say about it though, just a string building query
 
could be a stored procedure or a function with parameters passed in for the tablename, probably could do it differently too? idk

@202_accepted YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS, HAVEN'T YOU?
 
@SimonForsberg It's OK, I have run this ploy for several months now simple for this one, minuscule moment.

@SimonForsberg I HAVE WAITED PATIENTLY AND POLITELY FOR ONE PERSON, ONE SIMPLE PERSON, TO SLIP UP AND MISTAKE ME FOR THE GREAT @200_success, AND NOW THAT HIS BADGE IS GONE IT HAS SUCCEEDED!
@SimonForsberg Yeah but I need a new gimmick, and that's a lot of research. :)

@202_accepted I think it's just because he was in this room now. I'm so used to pinging him in The 1st Monitor otherwise.
 
How many versions of SQL does Oracle own?
 
@200_success wait, they integrated NoSQL into MySQL without segregating the datapots?
doesn't that completely nuke the query performance?
 
Dunno. MySQL has already been a hodgepodge of storage engines anyway.
 
MySQL query performance isn't that great to begin with.
@200_success Gah, you beat me to it. ;)

Side note, grab a copy of the framework design guidelines. Or, alternatively, if you don't see a style in the .net framework, don't use it. Hungarian notation and_underscores_in_names aren't used (except in autogenerated event handler names which is so embarrassing), and if other people see you using it they'll think you aren't as skilled in the language. It can hurt you in job interviews and in code reviews. — Will 35 secs ago

Q: Are vectorization requests on-topic?

200_successCurrently, there are 62 questions tagged vectorization, nearly all of which say "The performance sucks; how can I vectorize this code?". Recently, How to efficiently apply correction to a time series with fully vectorized code in Matlab was closed, with this comment: This question is off-top...

 
6:47 PM
@Feeds @200_success I think we should eliminate that tag but that's just me.
 
man this script takes forever....
almost 40 minutes....ugh
at least it is done.
 
@Malachi Wow. That's a script that needs some TLC.
 
@Hosch250 it loads address information tables.
 
Although, who am I to complain. We've got scripts at work that take hours and hours to run.
 
Counties, Zip Codes and Zip4 Ranges
 
6:56 PM
Fortunately, I don't touch them (yet).
@Malachi Meh, still needs TLC.
And when I do touch them, DB indexes and parallelization, here I come.
 
@Hosch250 I have one that was never able to finish within a week (and we get new data each week) so I broke it into two parts: one that downloads the data, and one that does the sync to the database. The sync runs indefinitely. :)
 
@202_accepted Yes, that's more/less what this does.
@202_accepted Hmm. So you have an ever-growing backlog of data to load?
 
@202_accepted either you're dealing with reams of data, or you should look at the performance of that database...
 
Let me know when that tumbles down.
@Vogel612 Probably both.
 
@Vogel612 We deal with a lot of government-provided data, from roughly 20 different departments and organizations.
@Hosch250 No, it replaces the in-process data.
 
6:58 PM
Oh, so each week you dump all previous data and replace it?
 
I don't try to wrap my head around the SQL stuff, 1 I don't know oracle well enough and 2 there are people here that are very good at SQL
 
Well, that sounds like a challenge. I'm itching to get my fingers on it already.
@Malachi I'm rather quickly becoming one of the people at my work that's pretty (I won't say very yet) good at SQL.
 
So if we look at it sequentially, say I have values 1-10, and each value takes a day to process, we start it Sunday after I get my new data set, and I get new data every Sunday at 0130 ET, so I replace 1-10 with the new stuff the next Sunday, and it starts processing element 8 from the new data-set, and loops to element 1 by Wednesday, so it's always rotating.
 
SQL is awesome for processing data in-DB quickly and only extracting what you need.
@202_accepted In other words, you lose a bunch of data?
That doesn't sound very good at all.
 
We don't actually need it, because the next Sunday dump will have the old data in it.
We don't get incremental updates for this, so we have to reprocess the whole thing.
 
7:01 PM
Oh.
Oh wow.
 
@Hosch250 I know enough SQL. I would say that I am somewhere in the intermediate realm
 
So if 1 doesn't change between two Sundays, I still have to reprocess it.
 
OK, sounds OK.
 
there isn't any change logs?
 
But my fingers are still itching to try fixing it :P
 
7:02 PM
they should be sending you what changed
 
@Malachi Nope. :(
@Malachi The government should be doing a lot of things...lol

@Hosch250 @Malachi ^^^ That's how it works.
The caret is what point it's processing. So in this example, we missed data 7a, 8a, 9a, 4b, 5b, 6b, 0c, 1c, 2c, 3c.
 
Yeah, not a bad idea at all given what you have.
 
Nah, it works well, and it means we can not have to worry about how long it takes, because it's always working through what it can. If it gets done too soon, it'll start over with the same data-set, but that never happens.
 
7:06 PM
so data is only current every so many days, otherwise it could be 7 days old?
 
It takes about 12.5 days to process the whole set, so at most things are 2 weeks old.
Well, 2 weeks 6 days.
The good news is we only have to have data accurate to 30 days.
So I still have ~25% of it to spare.
 
well then your doing a good job given the specifications...lol
 
Most companies in our field don't have this data-set accurate to 60 days...lol
 
oh wow
 
(Ever wonder why things at your bank take so long or are out-of-date?)
 
7:09 PM
This script is taking longer than I was told it would take.....
 
I'd still like to get my fingers on it, LOL.
 
Hah, well if you decide to become an employee (because I can't share more details with folks not on payroll - SOC stuff) you can peek at it. ;)
 
@202_accepted Ha, SOC 2 compliant?
Same here. Almost.
We are working on it.
All sorts of BS about devs not having admin access to their local machine, etc.

Q: should we Vectorize [tag:vectorization] questions with a [Vectorized] tag?

This would let users know that the tag needs to be used for questions where the code has already gone through the vectorization process and are now v...

 
@Feeds I think that would have been better as a potential answer on the original question.
 
@Hosch250 but that question is about closing all the questions that are already tagged with the confusing tag. I didn't feel like it fit as an answer...
 
7:37 PM
Yes, it does fit. It proposes we don't delete it, like 202's and rolfl's answers.
And it also addresses the issue of improving usage of the tag.
 
so should I leave the question and paste it into an answer? because the current way of getting rid of a tag is to post a meta about it and let everyone weigh in, feels like this would be doing it backwards...
 
@Malachi I don't know. Anyone else have thoughts?
 
@202_accepted I was reading that
lol
 
@Malachi Well read it over there --> ;) Figured I should be a responsible RO and move the off-topic stuff since it got a bit long. :P
 
7:49 PM
@202_accepted lol already did, I was almost done, and then * poof *
 
Poof
@Malachi I would probably wait until we decided with the question from @200_success, then yours would be more appropriate. :)
 
@202_accepted 200 already handled it.
lol
 
I was going to be nice about the tag, but jeez it's a complete cluster. Every question tagged with that I looked at (granted, not all 62) was not relevant to how it should actually be used.
 
@Malachi Your question is dupe hammered.

@202_accepted 200 already handled it.

200? Looks like rolfl.
 
nope. 200 got a golden badge and can dup-hammer on meta
 
Oh, NVM. I'm blind.
I just saw rolfl's edit.
 
@Malachi FWIW I think your second question was hammered because, in this case, the scope of the original question dove into that area because I suggested burn the @#$%er to the ground.
 
I went to ask a DB about the script I had running, and the second I got up it finished so he didn't see anything going on with my sessions
lol
 
8:01 PM
@Malachi I usually just run queries against my DB for that.
 
@202_accepted I am using Toad, so when I ran this script it kept me from doing anything in my IDE
I am not impressed with Oracle so far...lol I miss SQLServer
 
@rolfl EVEN THOUGH YOUR ANSWER DID NOT SUGGEST BURNING IT TO THE GROUND I STILL +1'D IT BECAUSE I LIKE THAT MIDDLE GROUND
 
your capslock seems to be stuck
 
No I did that on purpose. :)
