@CaptainObvious Should probably be CV'd by the way guys
 
Thanks for your help Charles. I was in fact missing the closing paren (how embarrassing), however, the compilation error persisted. Having found that my second snippet was the correct method, I dug a little deeper. It turns out that the issue was something that I didn't mention in my question. The two lists contain two different Types. The AccountPayment is a different class than the Payment class. Kind of silly of me. Again, thanks for your code review and pointing me in the right direction. — Stuart Miller just now
 
Why is it that every comment containing 'code review' is either polite or talking about CR.SE?
You'd think someone would use it sarcastically, like "Oh yeah because I needed a code review from you" but I haven't seen that yet
 
@QPaysTaxes Because believe it or not, some people are friendly.

Hey, everybody, this is the first time in about 4 weeks that I've gotten more than 9 hours of sleep! YAY
 
WOOOO
 
We have too many tags in this room...

@SimonAndréForsberg We could nuke a no longer interesting one, but that's not up to me.

YAY I CAN SEE MORE STARS
 
...Wow, I have more agency here than in my country
That's kinda sad
 
Just noticed that the tags are sorted automatically
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Is that a resolution thing? I have spare room under the star wall.
 
1:51 PM
I wanted to be next to each other...
 
@SimonAndréForsberg That would be nice indeed.
 
@Mast yes, and a browser zoom level thing. I tend to prefer bigger text than other people

I have a pretty good feeling that it wouldn't take very long.
 
1:56 PM
@EthanBierlein It won't change if you don't hit F5
 
Lol, I thought that was going to crash my browser or something
 
No, but you know what will?
ALT+F4
 
Which browser though?
 
@EthanBierlein Why?
 
So that I know which browsers are safe.
 
2:01 PM
...From ALT+F4?
 
So I can accidentally hit it without freaking out.
Yes
 
If you have Windows, every browser isn't safe
It's a Windows shortcut, not a browser one.
 
@QPaysTaxes Wrong.
 
Wait really?
 
It's an often used shortcut in many, many things.
Including Windows, browsers, whatever.
 
2:02 PM
...My point is that it's a Windows standard
 
Currently on FF in Ubuntu, F5 is a standard shortcut here as well.
 
Wait are we talking about F5 or ALT+F4?
I'm talking about the latter
 
@QPaysTaxes Use arrows
@QPaysTaxes Like I'm demonstrating.
@QPaysTaxes Helps to determine on what you're responding.
 
There is exactly one other person talking besides me.
It's pretty clear from context.
 
And exactly 2 shortcuts, so no.
 
2:04 PM
We were talking about ALT+F4 at the time
Not F5
Aaaanyway
What I would have been replying to was "Yes."
Not "Yes, I'm worried about ALT+F4".
It wouldn't have made things clearer
 
Alt+F4 works as well ^^

No, the code's working
I just rebooted RubyMine and the IDE works now

2:29 PM
I was reviewing codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/92171/… and black is insisting that this just a simulation. could you take a peak at it and tell me if I am mistaken or he is?
 
Well, I can take a peek at it, but I am not likely to choose sides
 
@hildred ohhh dear...
it looks like you met a pseudo-chameleon
 
Aww
Someone wiped the comments as I wrote mine
 
eh well, ~food
 
I did.
 
2:32 PM
Yeah I guessed as much
 
@QPaysTaxes I did
 
18 secs ago, by QPaysTaxes
Yeah I guessed as much
 
@hildred - I wiped all the comments, it was not constructive (the debate itself)
As an aside, I will actually choose sides a little bit ;-)
 
Anything to tell me if I want to ignore him or improve or just leave would be appreciated. And what is a psudo ch...?
 
@rolfl How so, though? It was a discussion about whether or not the review was constructive
 
2:33 PM
@QPaysTaxes - let's stick with one thing at a time./
 
@rolfl I'm so confused; what else are we talking about?
Oh wait nevermind
Just saw Hildred's comment
 
@hildred - I saw that question come thrugh, and I had to read it twice before I understood it.
Note that the user is emulating a whole operating system, not just a login
Things like PAM and so on would not exist.... in his reinventing-the-wheel scenario
 
(unless he reinvented PAM)
 
@EthanBierlein Is that from the cold? Because I have two nice, long, thick appendages that can warm you up
They're called arms
 
2:35 PM
.... and wanted to create a basic login program in the vein of a basic operating system.
 
Aww thank you @QPaysTaxes
 
On code review, many questions are reinventing-the-wheel style.
 
*rips off his own arms and hands them to @EthanBierlein*
No problem
 
Your answer is basically "don't reinvent the wheel", which I agree with, and consider it to be an answer, but I can also see how other people will say "dude's reinventing thr wheel, let him learn"
 
Begins voraciously eating @QPaysTaxes arms
 
2:36 PM
...what
No you're supposed to hug yourself
 
I need warmth. Food makes energy. Energy provide warmth. But before eat. Hug.
 
*backs away slowly*
 
ok fine, why would you want to not learn from the mistakes we have made when reinvinting the wheel? what is a pseudo-chameleon?
 
Don't worry @QPaysTaxes, I still love you <3
 
Hang on, let me just kick @QPaysTaxes and @EthanBierlein ....
 
2:38 PM
Even if I ate your arms.
 
XD
Alrighty
Cya, @rolfl
 
Right, serious things befor eidle chatter
a chamaeleon question is one that changes colours after it's been answered
In other words, the nature of the question is different at different times.
This is not particularly a chamaeleon questions
As for not learning from previous security mistakes, I agree, people should learn from them.

Q: Intersection of subset between two lists of dicts?

A TI want to find the intersection of two lists of dicts. Note that equality—i.e.: what is to appear in the intersection—is given by which keys they must have equal. See the obj_equal_on function. def obj_equal_on(obj0, obj1, keys): for key in keys: if obj0.get(key, False) != obj1.get(...

 
So should I delete my answer or rephrase or what?
 
xNo... I would not delete it.
I would say your answer is OK, and other answers are OK too
COnsider this question: "I decided to build my own linked list..."
A review of the impolementation and an answer saying "use a trusted library" are both valid
That is the situation here.
 
2:41 PM
@hildred Your answer actually brings up some good points.
 
@rolfl But, is it considered a code review? It's more a list of opinions, not a review.
 
Talk about inception
 
It is a code review.... Often, in a code review, saying: "why didnt you just use ABC library" is a valid answer.
 
I added VSDiagnostics (NuGet) to VSDiagnostics (Project) and it showed me a warning to use an expression-bodied member in.. the expression-bodied member analyzer.
 
That is what I thought. I appreciate your help,. And since it is breakfast time, I'll check bak another day.
 
2:43 PM
@rolfl Allright, I'll consider them as such from now onward.
 
@hildred OK, and, by the waym, there is a tag ... and, if that tag had been applied to this question, it would have made the situation more clear
 
@Mast What is a code review if not just a list of opinions?

@SimonAndréForsberg I suppose it should review the code, not the decisions made before writing the code.
Just the decisions made during the writing.

@Mast ummm? What exactly do you mean by that?
Maybe it is just me, but I make a lot of decisions while writing the code.
 
2:50 PM
@SimonAndréForsberg The OP obviously decided to DIY.
So why does he get comments about that and not about his implementation?
 
I'm starting to write one thing, because that's what I thought I wanted, but then I realize to do it in another way, so I have to rewrite the code
@Mast I haven't read the question, but I assume it is because his implementation sucked
 
I'm not in the habit of downvoting answers, but I don't the answerer got the idea of why the OP did what he did. Saying "You're doing it wrong, let the pro's handle it" is not constructive IMHO.
@SimonAndréForsberg Every implementation would have sucked. That's kind of the point with style questions (although that tag was missing, it was obvious).
If I write my own Map it would suck as well.
If I write my own int, same thing
But that doesn't make it wrong to try
 
@Mast Exactly what answer are you not agreeing with?
 
I mean, there's no point in either. It's just to get better at the language.
But that doesn't make it wrong to write it.
 
@Mast How would you even write your own int?
 
2:54 PM
Nobody answers a with "Don't write FizzBuzz"
 
1 min ago, by Simon André Forsberg
@Mast Exactly what answer are you not agreeing with?
 
People might joke about it if you program it in , but even then, you'll get decent answers.
@SimonAndréForsberg The given answer. I think it should've answered the question instead of stating opinions about something different than the code written.
But hey, monkey says it's okay, so it's okay
 
@Mast that question has four answers...
 
Oh
Now I understand your confusion
 
so... which of the answers is it?
 
2:57 PM

A: Basic OS login program

hildred You are not using PAM. Pluggable authentication modules allows you to change authentication backends, which allows for different security for different needs. You are using passwords. Pet peeve of mine. Passwords have had security failures longer than they have been named. The problems with them...

The one just discussed
 
I see nothing wrong with that answer.
Pluggable authentication modules sounds like a really good suggestion
And it is good to know that passwords are tricky things to get right
 
It may or may not be sound advice, but it's not a code review IMHO
It's a design choice review at most
 
@Mast - questions are not allowed to ask for a design review
 
But hey, in that case "Don't use C to build your server, use NodeJS instead" is also a valid review (not on this question, but you get the point)
 
Answers are free to give one anyway
 
3:02 PM
If it makes a question off-topic, why doesn't it make an answer NAA?
Wouldn't that follow the same logic?

A: Locating matching files with input folder and file prefix

rolflThe problem is almost certainly this line here: t=$(echo $fn | perl -pe 's|.*?(\d+\.\d+)|\1|'); If you are invoking the Perl interpreter for each line, you will struggle. A close second is that, for each file, you invoke 2 subshells, and two other program (sed and echo). My recommendation is...

> My recommendation is for you to actually rewrite the whole thing in Perl...

A: Getting a set of subscribers from a subscriberMap

rolflUse your tools properly ;-) You are missing a bunch of functionality that is available on your class that would help you a lot. First up, you have the following: private final Map<Class<? extends Event>, Set<Subscriber<? extends Event>>> subscriberMap = new ConcurrentHashMap<>(); Now, that'...

^^^ Use the tools you have already, don't reinvent them
I answer like that often
Hell, even my comments answer..... is: don't use comments even if you get marked down for that
 
@rolfl At least you're mentioning the original code there. You actually reviewed.
 
Meh, as per the help center: Do I want feedback about any or all facets of the code?
 
@rolfl There you explicitly solved parts of the given code. It's a better 1:1 implementation.
 
the design is one facet of the code.
recommending to reimplement the code in a different language "just because" is probably a bad answer, and will get voted down...
 
3:10 PM
Just suggesting stuff which basically states 'Throw it away, do it all over with this' is different
 
but, if, for example, the question is about performance, and the user has written it in ... say.... LOLCODE, then implementing it in C would be better, and a valid answer.
A lot fdepends on question context.
also, a lot depends on whether the answer is a good one, or not, and whether it deserves to be flagged, upvoted, or downvoted.
 
I offer my dissent. LOLCODE is obviously vastly superior to C.
Because, reasons.
 
@rolfl That's a kind of extreme case
 
@Mast intentionally
if the language is good enough to get the job done, and has a valid reason for being chosen, then answering with "use a different language" is a poor answer
2
 
What if the OP is restricted to the used language, should that be explicitly noted to prevent such answers?
 
3:12 PM
Nope... language tags are generally well contained here.
C++/C recommendations often cross.... people write C++ code that's basically C,a nd the answers oftne say: just use C
 
If I ask how I could shorten a C++ FizzBuzz and somebody answers with a CodeGolf language, it would be a poor answer IMHO
 
Generally, answers in a different language are flagged low quality
 
Even though it does shorten the code considerably by picking a language designed to write short code
 
but, you're not being sensible here.. you are pushing for extreme cases
 
@rolfl Well, you kind of opened the door on that one
 
3:14 PM
in the case given, the user chose to implement a login system.
some people reviewed the code as it is, other people said: use a trusted library
both answers are valid
 
What if the purpose of writing that code (I think it is) is to learn how login systems work? Using a module won't teach him as much.
 
some have more value than others, and you can tell that by the voting pattern, and the accept marks
@Mast then the user should have tagged the question with .
also, Do I want feedback about any or all facets of the code? is a default option for all answers
 
"Any help on improving my code by getting rid of useless code or replacing it with better code would be greatly appreciated." There's no asking for improved safety or 'is it considered best practice'
 
even if it is tagged with reinventing the wheel
> Do I want feedback about any or all facets of the code?
I have to go
 
Yes, it should have been tagged as re-inventing. I think it also should've been tagged as beginner though, seeing how he build up his code.
@rolfl Np, thanks for enlightening us
 
3:30 PM
I'd say that looks pretty good, however your question would be a better fit for Code Review, since your code is already working :) — Cu3PO42 6 secs ago
 
3:48 PM
Shhhh....
 
@EthanBierlein Too quiet for your taste?
 
Yeah, but that's okay.
 
@Mast I consider the "use a library" suggestion as "getting rid of useless code or replacing it with better code"
@rolfl As I have said on meta, that tag is rarely used when it can be...
 
4:07 PM
I agree...
Even when it is used, you can still answer that it's a bad idea

@SirPython Edits may not invalidate answers. If there were no answers yet, it's usually allowed.
If an answer appears shortly after the edit takes place and assumes the question was in its old state and now the answer is invalidated, it should be rolled back.
 
I guess it's okay; it was editted 20 minutes ago, and it got an answer 10 minutes ago.
 
As long as the answer isn't invalidated, it's ok.
 
Yup, it's good; nothing was invalidated.
