IIRC a List<T> is internally an array; a Dictionary<T> is internally a HashSet<T> ..right?
yeah
wait, no
<facepalm/>
hey I had 4 hours of sleep in the past 48 hours
gimme a break
 
@Mat'sMug goto sleep;
 
I can't, Bar doesn't resolve
 
you can hit the Bar later
i think i've gone down a rabbit hole where my servicelocator needs a servicelocator of its own. something is seriously broken with this design
 
but... ....why ?
 
because i don't know any better, probably :(
it would be great if i could pick your brain about this problem, some other time
 
5:10 AM
sure!
 
thanks :)
 
ah, found it
    private readonly Stack<Declaration> _withQualifiers = new Stack<Declaration>();
^^ I have Class1 declaration right here.. and I'm not using it
 
@Mat'sMug i think if you turn on Warnings as Errors, unused fields will cause the build to fail
 
well I Push and I Pop it, so it is used.
 
ah ok

                var parentMemberName = memberProcedureCallContext.Stop.Text;
                var matchingParents = _declarations.Items.Where(d => d.IdentifierName == parentMemberName);

                Declaration parentType = null;
                if (_withQualifiers.Any())
                {
                    parentType = _withQualifiers.Peek();
                }
                else
                {
                    parentType = matches.SingleOrDefault(m => matchingParents.Any(p => m.ComponentName == p.AsTypeName));
wtf
I wasn't Peeking at it though ;)
 
see that's a good place to use a ternary
 
lol.. was going to say (resists urge to turn if-else into ternary)
but yeah
var parentType = _withQualifiers.Any()
    ? _withQualifiers.Peek()
    : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => matchingParents.Any(p => m.ComponentName == p.AsTypeName));
 
is matchingParents used elsewhere?
 
oops, I borked it
@mjolka nope
            var memberProcedureCallContext = context.Parent as VBAParser.ICS_B_MemberProcedureCallContext;
            if (memberProcedureCallContext != null)
            {
                var parentMemberName = memberProcedureCallContext.Stop.Text;
                var matchingParents = _declarations.Items.Where(d => d.IdentifierName == parentMemberName);

                var parentType = _withQualifiers.Any()
                    ? _withQualifiers.Peek()
                    : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => matchingParents.Any(p => m.ComponentName == p.AsTypeName));
well I'm missing d.DeclarationType == DeclarationType.Class there for sure
 
@Mat'sMug this Controls that you mentions seems to be a WinForm thing. do you happen to know the wpf equivalent of it mat?
 
5:26 AM
@Mehrad indeed. You don't need any of that in WPF. Just use databindings to your ViewModel
 
this is a shitty little project and I wanted to do the easiest possible
 
yes, easy in WPF means databindings and viewmodels.
otherwise you get into very complicated shitz
 
:"(

5:29 AM
you're thinking in WinForms
life in WPF gets very complicated very fast if you think in WinForms
 
Friday afternoon + shitty little project = laziness :)
 
@Mat'sMug looks like multiple enumerations of matchingParents -- might want to consider something like this
    var parentMemberName = memberProcedureCallContext.Stop.Text;
    var matchingParents = _declarations.Items
        .Where(d => d.IdentifierName == parentMemberName)
        .Select(p => p.AsTypeName)
        .ToHashSet();

    var parentType = _withQualifiers.Any()
        ? _withQualifiers.Peek()
        : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => matchingParents.Contains(m.ComponentName));
 
I have never Winformed so I wouldn't know
@Mat'sMug thanks
 
(i made up ToHashSet. why isn't that a thing?)
 
@Mehrad whenever you think you need to deal with controls anywhere other than in the view's code-behind (i.e. almost never), you're thinking in WinForms ;)
if you really want to write your logic in the view's code-behind, you can. but that's not something WPF makes easy. you're going to end up with named controls, and very WinFormsy code.

Q: Highly repeditive code when using multiple dispatch to walk tree

OxinaboxBecause (in Julia 0.3 at least) every tuple has its type encoded, a tuple containing either further tuples or leaf node types, is a reasonable way to represent a tree. Then walking the tree can be done with multiple dispatch of methods. However this does seem the result in a lot of replicated co...

 
@mjolka ooh good catch! R# seems to skip those in anonymous methods...
(déjà-vu)
 
all over again
 
ah, the bug is that I'm matching parentMemberName, which is Foo - but since I'm in a With block it's the type of Foo I need to match.
back to if-else ;)
wait, no.. that's what Peek does - gets me Class1
 
@Mat'sMug what do you think of ToHashSet?
 
I think there's gotta be a reason why it's not implemented ;)

ah
oh wow.. I have 4 matches for Foo: 3 procedures and 1 variable. Only one of them is in the _currentScope. I guess I've found my bug :)
return parentType == null ? null : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => m.ParentScope == parentType.ParentScope);
return parentType == null ? null : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => m.ParentScope == _currentScope);
...wait.. then why do I need the parentType for?
ugh
 
@Mat'sMug I agree. as I am familiar with wpf i have started this project in it but I should've done it in Winforms. It's okay. I am almost done. it was a single day job :)
 
6:11 AM
the @Mug here at this hour? seems unusual
 
he's having parent issues
 
lol, I can see that
 
oooooh the stupid bug
scoping issues actually
return parentType == null ? null : matches.SingleOrDefault(m => m.ParentScope == parentType.Scope);
parentType.Scope, not parentType.ParentScope
that works beautifully!
ta-da!
refactor/rename works!

@SimonAndréForsberg but where's the LOL in that?
 
@Mast generally, the month-challenges aren't exactly month-challenges. They're challenges for as long as there's interest in it. The weekly challenges died out because the interest in them faded away. New challenges happened too quickly. After a while, we started with monthly challenges: Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe was one and a simple Trading Card Game was another. Then the interest also died for a while, until we did Simon Says.
What I'm trying to say is: I don't think it needs to be one challenge per month. "One challenge every now and then" is good though.

I think the answers here cover it pretty well, but I'd take time to remind you of two things. 1) Code Reviews take time. More time than answers on other programming related SEs. Particularly for Qs that contain a lot of code. You only posted the main site question yesterday. Please be patient. 2) We generally have more askers than answerers here, and we particularly lack Python reviewers. This adds to the "time to answer" factor. That said, I really encourage you to browse other questions and see if you yourself don't have an answer to contribute. — RubberDuck 27 secs ago
 
@JackPearse, he can mark whatever he wants as accepted, but we definitely should help him do so because despite his unilateral power to choose the accepted answer, he is necessarily less informed than all of the answerers. He is an Objective-C beginner, so if no one warns him against answers that will cause him to form bad habits, how can he know any better? He doesn't have the necessary knowledge to make the best decision despite being the only one who gets to make the decision on accepted answer. The power of SO is in peer review. — nhgrif 25 secs ago

Far enough to allow you to actually download an entire OS, that is.

I don't like VMs, but sure, why not.

I have Ubuntu on an old laptop.
@JeroenVannevel why are you interested in working on Linux all of a sudden?

There are multiple components of it already contained within VS 2015 RC / Windows so my system is tainted
 
11:52 AM
Great idea.
 
@nhgrif done
 
Well, @JeroenVannevel, it was worse than NotePad++ on OSX unless you apparently go install a bunch of extras... Which you just have to do on your own... It doesn't offer to install them for you
And there is no UI for changing any of your settings--you have to modify JSON by hand.
 
If I understood what I read in various places, you have to install DNX (.NET Execution Environment) and you can create solutions using yeoman
Which sounds like typical Linux behaviour to me
a few commands and you're ready
I would be more impressed if this damn VM would boot instead of pestering me with errors
 
Maybe--it's not typical OSX behavior to require me to install several extras to get you text editor to work.

Who knows, @JeroenVannevel, maybe you will install Unix and then you will start using some other programming tools for Unix and then you'll start using Unix for the rest of your life, and then you will say "I haven't installed a Windows version in.. 10 years?"
 
Maybe he'll actually realize the concept of correct tools for correct jobs.
 
I do realize that. Just because I haven't found a need to use Linux yet doesn't mean I'm undivided against it
 
I don't just mean Linux as a tool. I mean languages outside of .NET

@nhgrif Which is why it's a good idea, IMHO
@nhgrif It's all about finding out something complex is actually fairly simple
 
@nhgrif which is why I think writing a web-server is a bit too much. Writing a chat server is a lot easier. Writing a UTTT server is intermediate.
Implementing servers and network communication is a very important programming skill. You will sooner or later be faced with concurrency issues, compatibility issues (old clients connecting to a new server after a protocol change) and a whole bunch of other things.
maybe I should post my own submission to the meta post? Or should I convince @Mast to edit his?

meeeta
 
It's kind of vague with the intention to keep it open.
 
but a TTTGS is not a Web Server.
 
That didn't come out right
@SimonAndréForsberg It is if it communicates over HTTP
If you make every move with PUT or UPDATE, why wouldn't it be a web server?
 
but that is quite a big restriction. There are a lot of other ways to communicate than with the HTTP protocol.
 
True
 
12:30 PM
the HTTP protocol specifies a lot of other things that are not needed by a UTTT server, or a chat server.
 
That's why I didn't specify HTTP (although I did mention GET etc.).
You don't need to meet any spec.
Just make sure you can handle the requests.
 
When you said web server, I assumed you meant HTTP Web Server.
Are you saying that you agree that we make it more open, so that it can be a chat server, a Ultimate TTT server, or a HTTP web server?
@Mast From the Wikipedia article about "Web Server" it says:
> A web server is an information technology that processes requests via HTTP, the basic network protocol used to distribute information on the World Wide Web. The term can refer either to the entire computer system, an appliance, or specifically to the software that accepts and supervises the HTTP requests.

I'd make it more general, but I'm lacking requirements for that case @SimonAndréForsberg

@JeroenVannevel ubuntu ubuntu ubuntu ubuntu
What would you like to call this PC? "ubuntu"
 
let's do this
 
just stick it in any question the computer asks =D
 
@Mast the only requirement is: It's a server that should be able to communicate with some client(s). Make the server whatever you want (you will probably have to make the clients also, or use a general purpose command such as telnet to communicate with the server)
 
can't say it isn't accurate!

Fixed one of my errors after 3 hours because I wasn't running my Command Prompt (Windows, fuck Windows) as administrator
 
Code understanding will never work...
 
A calculator has some pretty defined functions. It should at least handle + - * and /
 
And... I am very familiar with client side interaction with servers...
 
A general server, well, recommendations are fuzzy, many things can be considered a server
 
I have written FTP, HTTP, SQL, and SCADA clients

@Mast I think telnet is more flexible than curl, but sure, curl as well. There is a difference between short-lived connections and long-lived connections. A web server normally accepts a connection, handles requests, sends response, closes the connection. Chat servers accepts connections and has the ability to send data to clients at any time after the client connects, until it disconnects.
A server is a running instance of an application (software) capable of accepting requests from the client and giving responses accordingly. Servers can run on any computer including dedicated computers, which individually are also often referred to as "the server". Servers operate within a client-server architecture. Servers are computer programs running to serve the requests of other programs, the clients. Thus, the server performs some tasks on behalf of clients. It facilitates the clients to share data, information or any hardware and software resources. The clients typically connect to the...

Q: My own malloc() function in C

ivan_petrushenkoIs this acceptable? typedef struct heap_block { struct heap_block* next; size_t size; bool isfree; int x; // for alligment }header; void* malloc(size_t sz) { if(sz == 0 || sz > Heap_Capacity || sz > (Heap_Capacity - (size_t)active_size)) { ++fail_count; ...

 
@SimonAndréForsberg I know what a server is. Now I need requirements for the challenge.
 
Isn't a server a requirement enough?
The good thing about "make a server" is that people might realize that they can make something that they can have use for. Whether it is a server for their game, or a webserver, or a chat server, or anything else.
 
Media server for my home network...
 
I think the only requirement is: Should be able to handle more than one client at a time. Whether or not the clients should be able to talk to one another is up to you.
 
12:45 PM
True, but I don't want to open the door to code that's technically a server but not doing anything
 
...and an iOS app that will download media from that server and put it in my iTunes library..
Don't tack requirements on there...
 
Code Review already has the requirement of "real code". I don't think you have to worry about servers not doing anything.
 
@nhgrif Keep talking and I'll make cross-platform a must-have functionality :P
@SimonAndréForsberg That's true. Do you feel like writing an answer or should I rewrite mine?
 
Sure, example projects are on-topic. If it's just a server responding with "Hello World! The time is 2015-05-01 14:48:00" then so be it.
@Mast Do you feel like rewriting yours or should I write an answer?

12:47 PM
I could write an answer if you'd like
 
@SimonAndréForsberg That's probably for the best. Good luck :)\
 
Wait, why would the OS of the client even matter?
 
@Mast okay, I will
 
The server resides somewhere and processes requests from clients on a well-defined protocol...
 
@nhgrif It shouldn't matter. Why would it? What client?
 
12:49 PM
Client OS doesn't matter...
@Mast commented about multiplatform
 
@nhgrif Couldn't resist.
You'd probably build an iServer with an iClient.
 
Wouldn't a server that you could run from an iPad be cool though?
And you just connect to it via Bluetooth?

@nhgrif I'm currently running 3 servers and a client on two laptops. If I had my N900 still in use, I'd run a server on it just for kicks. So, why wouldn't you be able to run a server on an iPad?
@SimonAndréForsberg Looks good.
 
12:57 PM
@Mast you can... But you can't just install anything on an iPad...
An iPad isn't a laptop
 
@nhgrif As long as the iPad is open for incoming connections, that should be possible. (I just wonder how many incoming connections iPads allow...)
 
@nhgrif Who said anything about installing?
My N900 runs Python 2 native
And that's a telephone from 2009
Now take that, iPhone 6
