@Mat'sMug you do know that modulo doesn't work on floating point by implication?
 
how come? doesn't 3.5/2.1 have a remainder?

Q: How can I expand this c++11 event system to handle multiple arguments?

Soylent GrahamI've written a simple subscriber event system taking advantage of std::function. It works great! (and I can do some big enhancements later with thread-pooling for expensive callbacks) The next step to improve this is to handle events/callbacks with more than one parameter. Other than forcing s...

 
@Mat no...
A remainder only exists for integer divisions.
 
@Mat'sMug 3.5 % 2.1 == 1.4 I would say.
Wolfram Alpha seems to agree with me.
 
@Vogel612 hmm... wth?
 
3:07 PM
Seems like modulo is even defined for complex numbers: mathworld.wolfram.com/ComplexModulus.html
And as rational numbers is a subset of complex numbers, I see no reason for why it would not be defined for rational numbers as well
 
How do you handle 0 denominators? I'm not familiar with C# and didn't see anywhere that this was handled. — nhgrif 2 hours ago
I'm hitting a funny problem with this.
 
@MadaraUchiha yes, but when?
 
@Mat'sMug In a condition before you even try to do the mod
 
@Mat'sMug Constructor?
 
3:12 PM
a struct always has a default constructor, which makes 0/0 the default(Fraction)
actually default(int)/default(int)
 
Are we talking about C?
DID YOU MAKE ME GIVE C ADVICE?!

A: Why can't I define a default constructor for a struct in .NET?

Jon SkeetEDIT: I've edited the answer below due to Grauenwolf's insight into the CLR. The CLR allows value types to have parameterless constructors, but C# doesn't. I believe this is because it would introduce an expectation that the constructor would be called when it wouldn't. For instance, consider th...

yeah, C#
 
Speaking of constructors in C#. Can anyone explain to me why I would want to use a static constructor? I've been reading, but I don't understand the advice I was given.
 
you don't use a static constructor.
if you have static fields to initialize, might as well initialize them inline
private static int _someInt = 42;
 
3:18 PM
I don't have any static fields. (At least none that I think should be static.)

A: I'm not sure if I still love Fibonacci, but my code is getting better. How much better?

200_successA Dictionary is the wrong data structure to use for memoization here. An ArrayList would be more appropriate. The reason is that the entries are not independent, but rather sequential: it will remember all entries from the 0th to some maximum. There's not much point to hashing when a simple ar...

Not asking for votes or reviews. I just don't understand his advice.
Still a C# n00b...
 
a static constructor would be executed the first time a class is referenced/used
 
Right. So what's the benefit?
 
0
(IMO)
or there's something I missed.
 
Ok. Thanks Mat'sMug. I asked him to clarify, so hopefully he can explain why.
 
probably means this:
private static Dictionary<int, BigInteger> dictionary = new Dictionary<int, BigInteger>();
which is equivalent to initializing it in a static constructor
(he's right about the Dictionary, but as @svick noted ArrayList is way outdated)
ugh.
 
3:26 PM
At the risk of sounding really stupid, what's the difference between that and how I did it?
 
being non-static means each instance has its copy - being static means the type owns it, meaning all instances share the same static data
(hence VB calling it "shared")
hey @rolfl
 
Ohhh. Ok. So if my main program created a new Fibonacci, it wouldn't have to recalculate the values. Ok.
 
not sure what "priming the cache" actually means though
 
Hiya! So I'm about to ask for review for a FizzBuzz implementation in Ruby, anything I should know about?
 
n == 0 and n == 1 are special cases that can't be correctly calculated by the algorithm. So, I have to "prime" the cache like I'd prime an old motor with gas.
 
3:33 PM
From what I've seen it's pretty much paste your code and let others tear it apart ;)

Does a struct in C# mean that the components are stored directly on the heap, rather than a reference to an object?

@Mat'sMug Sounds a long way off eh
 
@Undo Your (new?) avatar through me off. I thought I recognized you.
 
@syb0rg it's fairly new, yeah.
 
@syb0rg Now I did. ;)
I like the idea of the logo. If you don't want to drop the hexagon, I probably would give the circle more space from it. Also the electron is relatively small compared to the stroke of the circle.
 
wtf, I forgot how to implement fibonacci with memoization, feeling a bit stupid now
 
Make it bigger or the stroke thinner.
 
3:59 PM
@kleinfreund Put it in an answer silly. You should get rep for this.
 
Oh, my brain started working again
 
And lots of other people agree on dropping the hexagon.
 
Ah, come on. I don't have an account there yet and @200 answered what I said yesterday as well. ;)
Another thing—for when the hexagon stays: Rotate it another 15°.
 
@kleinfreund Ehh, I'll probably get rid of it.

4:34 PM
should 1/2 and 2/4 have the same hash code / be equal?
(I think I'm overthinking this)
 
What's hash code exactly?
 
Fraction's
 
They should certainly respond true to an isEqual operation
 
and basic equality rules say if Equals returns true, GetHashCode should return the same value
so returning ToDecimal().GetHashCode() is ok
 
hmm...
 
4:38 PM
this Fraction thing is much more fun than I had anticipated
 
Yeah.
Fraction class is what first made OOP click for me.
 
Thing is, I don't want it to be a class, I really want it to be a ValueType
I'm introducing an IsUndefined property to handle the 0 denominator
 
Yeah. I'm rewriting syb0rg's as a class.
I'm just returning NAN anywhere it might need to if denominator is 0.
 
that's not crazy at all
except I'm having it as decimal.. and NaN is a float...
ugh
was decimal the wrong choice?
 
In Objective-C, NAN is a #defined macro.
 
4:45 PM
@nhgrif Though NAN doesn't necessarily == NAN.
At least, not in C.
 
    public float ToFloat()
    {
        return IsUndefined ? float.NaN
                           : (float)_numerator / (float)_denominator;
    }
I can just do ToFloat().Equals(other)
and let C# determine if NaN == NaN
hmm.. a struct can be partial... which means I could implement the operators in a separate code file, and avoid organizing my code with #region :)
there will be a follow-up question, whatever happens to my Fraction review
 
@kleinfreund How can I get the button to display text equivalent to the OS that the machine is running, such as here?

@Mat'sMug Is there a reason to store 2/4 as 2/4?
btw, why would you recommend others to fork your own project? Isn't it better to recommend contribution / pull requests?
 
@skiwi uh, Principle of Least Surprise: if I create a new Fraction(2,4) and then call ToString(), I expect it to print 2/4, not 1/2
no?
 
There is surely some sense in it
I think though that it would be justified to return 1/2
Because they are the same
 
that's right.
hmm
 
And any program relying on your ToString and calculating upon that should die anyway.
 
lol it's just semantics: ToString should return a string representation of the fraction, I'd expect it to be represented unsimplified, as it was created.

@rolfl It may be better if I just leave out the whole main.Main from that question as it's actually irrelevant, but I'd need your call on that as it would invalidate your answer partly
 
partly, but the rest of my answer (updated) makes sense with, or without the main.
 
Most of it still makes sense
May I edit it out of my question?
 
Also, the way you are using the List, is not really memoization, but caching.
@skiwi Sure.
@skiwi - you should remove the tag as well then.
 
(That is why I tried to catch you before you edited yours)
Done and done
What is the difference of memoization vs caching then?
I thought caching was a fixed-size memory that can get full and may discard old entries, while memoization stores everything always.
 
6:49 PM
Well, memoization is typically part of a long running algorithm where the next iteration can depend on previously calculated values.
In your case though, you can call your method multiple times, and it saves the state of previous runs of the system, not just the current run
If the input number is smaller than a previously calculated number, it does nothing.
 
So memoization is a trick used in one run of an algorithm, where caching is between runs
btw. I refactored that check to isInFibonacciList because it feels more logical to me, that whole equation of number <= FIBONACCI_LIST.size() - 1 resp number < FIBONACCI_LIST.size() is a little bit hard to grasp for me currently
 
Should be easy enough, number is an index in your arraylist, right?
it is valid if number < size()
The relationship that number is the index is more obvious if you do:
 
(Deleted my comment on your answer as well)
 
if (number < FIBONACCI_LIST.size()) {
        return FIBONACCI_LIST.get(number);

Q: in Jquery looping resultset and displaying in html <li>

AshwiniI want to loop through resultset using Jquery and display in html. here is my code var message = result.invocationResult.resultSet; for(var index=0; index<message.length;index++){ document.getElementById("demo1").innerHTML = message[0].FirstName; document.getElementById("demo11").in...

@rolfl Is the number < FIBONACCI_LIST.get(number) intended there? (The retrieval of element from list)
 
^^^ was just a copy/paste problem, let me fix.
 
Now it makes more sense :)
World cup starts now though

Q: 100 gunmen in circle kill next person

Koray TugayThe question is here. 100 people are standing in a circle with gun in their hands. 1 kills 2, 3 kills 4, 5 kills 6 and so on till we are left with only one person. Who will be the last person alive. Write code to implement this efficiently. Here is my Java implementation: public static voi...

Q: Debug log wrapper

Hopefully I'll be done with my question soon. Luckily the OP of the original question didn't make the game too complicated (just messy).

I have a rough idea for an application I want to make, but I'm struggling with how to actually implement it, any clue if a description of my problem and an outline of my intentions would be a fit on programmers.SE?
 
@CaptainObvious Don't post interesting questions during a world cup final!

A: Where to define constants (Bundle Keys) used between 2 Activities?

Simon André ForsbergOne thing that I find is that it is not necessary to wrap your keys inside their own inner class. Putting them inside SecondActivity directly is enough. public class SecondActivity extends Activity { public static class Key { public static final String USER_NAME = "USER_NAME"; ...

Fraction1: 2/1 (decimal: 2)
Fraction2: 2/4 (decimal: 0.5)
2/1 + 2/4 = 5/2 (decimal: 2.5)
2/1 - 2/4 = 3/2 (decimal: 1.5)
2/1 * 2/4 = 1/1 (decimal: 1)
2/1 / 2/4 = 4/1 (decimal: 4)
Fraction3: $\frac{2}{1}$ (2/1)
Fraction4: $\frac{2}{4}$ (2/4)

@Mat'sMug Nice
 
@skiwi thanks! I was missing == and != operators, and Parse+TryParse methods, and so many other things!
it's getting pretty nice now
 
You are tempting me to make one as well
but Java really needs value types for that to work well
well, to perform well
 
7:56 PM
hehe
 
I'm hoping a specific Valhalla build comes up in time, preferably within a year, I'd use it to play around, Valhalla is supposed to include value types and generics with value types (which also includes primitives thus)

Console.WriteLine(Fraction.Empty == "0/1"); prints true :)
I think I'll post a selfie
 
8:36 PM
should I enable things like Console.WriteLine(new Fraction(13,52) + "1/4") (would output 1/2)? How much operator overload is too much operator overload?
"if an operator can throw a FormatException, it's not a good operator" - would that make a good rule of thumb?
 
8:57 PM
@syb0rg Cancel my taking a stab at it - someone else already got all the things that I was going to say (particularly the superflousness of the get/setters in the implementation)
 
9:14 PM
fraction++ works, too :)
@SimonAndréForsberg now I feel like I've implemented my Fraction type à la Simon André Forsberg!
 
Uh question: Why haven't you folks graduated yet?

@Undo very good question
we need more voters and returning customers
 
wow, 30 Q/day. Not bad.
 
22.3K visits/day, too! =)
 
Yes, mostly voting and user-retention. We do have enough 2K/3K/10K/20K, at least compared to other sites.
 
9:22 PM
is this a good idea?
    public Fraction(float value)
        : this(Fraction.Parse(value.ToString()))

Q: Circular Wrapping Text, minor adjustments

John ConnerI am actually pretty damn proud of this code, it's my first complex algorithm I have made. Basically it sets a shapes default size and radius based on how many characters are in a string that is passed to it, the user gets the option to manually set the Font, otherwise it is automatically set for...

 
9:45 PM
Well that was a good game :)
 
Indeed, @Simon
 
@Mat'sMug In Java, all operator overload is too much (except for + for strings) because it's just not possible :)
@kleinfreund SPOILER ALERT: (removed) (see edit for the spoiler)
 
Congratulations to the teams. It was a great game.
 
It felt a bit rough at times, but oh well...
@Mat'sMug Can it solve a Samurai Sudoku!? :)
 
Yes, it was very rough. I don't like that part about it at all. :/
 
9:50 PM
@Mat'sMug just kidding, I would love to --see it--- review it
@kleinfreund Me neither
@Mat'sMug Doesn't feel like a good idea to me.
 
But man, what a game.

A: Dog owner simulator

Simon André ForsbergBesides the comments you've already received, I'm adding some more: Many of your variables can be marked as private final. All of them can be marked private and those who get initialized directly and never change should also be marked final. These include: Game g = new Game(); Scanner s = new...
