Which is correct? "triangle shaped" or "triangular shaped" or "triangularly shaped"
 
"Triangular" or "triangle-shaped".
"Triangular shaped" is redundant.
 
@Dennis Actually, it's incorrect. Can't have two adjectives in a row like that.
"Triangularly shaped" is valid, but verbose and a bit clunky.

I just selected the "diagnostics" option when booting up my laptop.
Now to see what it does.
 
@El'endiaStarman Reminds me of discussions of people putting extra parentheses in Scheme programs (I'm a [scheme] gold badge holder, so I read a lot of [scheme] questions). In Scheme, extra parentheses changes the semantics of the program. Some people refer to them as "redundant", which is not correct, so I poke people when they do that. :-P
(On SO, not PPCG.)
e.g., 42 is a number. (42) tries to invoke 42 as a procedure, which is incorrect since 42 is not a procedure. So these would be incorrect parentheses, not "redundant".
 
12:33 AM
...I think I might be having a bit too much fun with Befunge... :P
 
@El'endiaStarman Stands to reason. Befunge was the winner of the stack overflow code golf, after all.

A: What's the shortest code to cause a stack overflow?

PatrickAll these answers and no Befunge? I'd wager a fair amount it's shortest solution of them all: 1 Not kidding. Try it yourself: http://www.quirkster.com/iano/js/befunge.html EDIT: I guess I need to explain this one. The 1 operand pushes a 1 onto Befunge's internal stack and the lack of anything...

 
But ><> :D
 
@Sp3000 Can it win stack overflow code golf?
 
With the exact same program, yes
It'd lose the time-of-post tiebreak though :P
 
Indeed.
Indeed, I prefer smallest and fastest...gun in the west. :-P (I just realised that I hadn't responded to your comment for over a year, so I had to say something cheeky. :-P) — Chris Jester-Young ♦ Mar 17 '10 at 5:27
To understand my comment, you have to understand that Adam Davis (whom I was replying to) is a big proponent of FGitW.
 
12:46 AM
I think it's more fun personally to be the SCitE. :)
 
@PhiNotPi Well, that's a perfectly valid strategy for PPCG, if your "cheater" answer is actually shorter than the answer it was based on.
 
I'm looking at the stack overflow question thinking how different it would be if posted on PPCG today :P
 
Is there an already-existing programming language that overflows the stack as an empty program?
If not, then Befunge (and ><>, I suppose, and derivatives thereof) would still win.
 
I was thinking more the fact that the top answer would have come a lot quicker, the joke answers would be deleted, and half of the rest would have "You can golf this further by using one-letter variable names and removing whitespace" comments :P
 
1:10 AM
I might have an idea for a geometry (?) -based challenge.
Based on the process of "reflecting a point across another point"
If you have a series of "reflection points" and a starting point, and you reflect over those different points in series, you end up somewhere new.
MS Paint time.
 
@PhiNotPi I actually did this exact thing a couple weeks ago.
Lemme take a screenshot real quick.
 
From what I can tell, a series of 3 reflecting points can be reduced to a single reflecting point.
 
Starting point is A, end point is B, magenta point is what you get when you reflect over the intersected lines in reverse order (i.e. furthest first). White points are the intersection points ordered from A to B, and the yellow points are the intermediate points in this reflection process, numbered in reverse order.
Green points/numbers are intersection points found, where a lower number generally corresponds to being closer to the center. Cyan points are where the blue point would be if it was reflected across the corresponding green point.
 
The 3 black points are three reflecting points, the red dot is the reflecting point that is the reduction of those three black points.
The blue and green points have paths that go through each black dot, but you can see that they are also reflected around the red dot.
 
@PhiNotPi What if you have an even number of reflecting points?
 
1:23 AM
If there are 2 reflecting points, then the final point is a translational shift of the starting point.
 
Playing around with Geogebra, and it seems that 3 reflecting points reduce to the 4th point which completes the parallelogram
 
If there are 4 points (or any other number, really) the last three of the four can be reduced to a single point.
@Sp3000 yes
 
Hmm. Does math work in here? $\sqrt{x+y}$
Ah, right. I have the ChatJax extension installed.
 
In the case of 2 reflection points, the translational shift is twice the length and in the same direction of the line segment formed by the two points.
If you have 3 reflection points, but go around the loop twice, you end up back where you started.
 
@PhiNotPi That sounds a LOT like group theory is at play here.
Hmm. If $\vec{a}$ is the original points and the reflecting points are $\vec{v_1}, \vec{v_2}, \dots, \vec{v_3}$, then the final point $\vec{b}$ is...
 
1:30 AM
2*v3 - (2*v2 - (2*v1 - a)) ?
 
@Dennis Sounds like you need to add some features to CJam. :)
 
which is the same as 2*(v3-v2+v1) - a
So v3-v2+v1 is the "equivalent point"
Which is the 4th corner of the parallelogram
 
Let's make up some data and test that.
Let's say that a = (2,2), and that v1 = (3,2), v2 = (3,-3), and v3 = (-1,-3). Then v4 should be (-1,2) by your hypothesis.
a0 = (2,2). a1 = (4,2). a2 = (2,-8). a3 = (-4,2). (2,2) reflected over (-1,2) is indeed (-4,2). Cool!
 
Earlier, I also said that reflecting over two points is a translational shift by 2*(v2 - v1)
v2 - v1 = (0,-5) and a2 - a0 = (0,-10)

Q: Beatles Songs and Hexagons

Calvin's HobbiesWrite two triangle (i.e. pyramid) shaped programs. The first one should be an upwards pointing text triangle with a minimum base width of three characters. So it would have a structure like X XXX or X XXX XXXXX or X XXX XXXXX XXXXXXX or larger. Each of the X's is to be replace...

 
@MartinBüttner, gonna try that one in Hexagony? :D
 
Sorry, I'm having fun :P
 
If there are four points, then 2*v4 - (2*v3 - (2*v2 - (2*v1 - a)))) = 2(v4-v3+v2-v1) + a. Hmm.
@Sp3000 That's awesome.
 
What software is that?
 
Geogebra
 
1:46 AM
Geogebra, probably.
 
@Doorknob "hexagon" should be a tag
 
I can drag point D around and see what happens
 
downloading now :)
 
@ThomasKwa Or something between and at least
 
"Boys", "Girl", "Junk", "Rain", "Wait"
 
1:49 AM
@PhiNotPi Oh, that makes sense now. Reflecting through three points is equivalent to reflecting through one, so doing it twice is just reflecting through that one point twice.
 
Okay, so there's some 4-letter titles I can do this in. :P
There's also five 5-letter titles.
 
@Doorknob Only 8+ length songs are allowed
 
oh :(
I should read things more
 
I think that part should be bolded for the TL;DR'ers :P
 
"Birthday", "Catswalk", "Etcetera", "Get Back", "Hey Jude", "I'm Down"
the 8-letter titles
 
1:52 AM
@PhiNotPi If you get it working, here's the ggb
 
The longer song titles wins tiebreaker though ;)
 
My priority is mainly solving this at all in Snowman right now, don't really care about winning :P
 
My first thought is 2D languages because I'm lazy, but knowing what happens in these challenges Dennis is probably going to come up with some nice and simple CJam
 
So "anything except line terminators" means spaces are okay as X or y?
 
yes
I would restrict it to plain printable ascii but then the APLers get snippy
 
1:55 AM
@Sp3000 thanks, I got it working
 
:)
 
Wait... there's a song called "From Me to You" and another one called "From Us to You"? O_o
 
@PhiNotPi You can drag A,B,C,D around. E is defined by A,D. F is defined by B,E. G is defined by C,F and H is defined by D,G (so these ones won't move even if you try to drag them)
 
... there are three songs called "Revolution," "Revolution 1," and "Revolution 9." Should you possibly not allow those (or at least the ones with numbers)? Because they could be abused really easily.
 
@Doorknob Good idea, I'll restrict those
 
1:59 AM
The point-reflecting problem simplified down a whole lot.
 
... huh, I just I realized I never require block comments ([[ ... ]]) to have the end mark, so [[ without a matching ]] simply comments out the rest of the program. This shall be taken advantage of
 
... this hexagon challenge is pretty tricky in Python :/
 
I'm beginning to develop a strategy for Snowman...
 
And I'm thinking about Befunge...
 
2D languages should be pretty good :P
@Calvin'sHobbies Can we read our own source code?
(or is this quine rules?)
 
2:11 AM
hmm
Im thinking no
@Sp3000 No.
 
k.
 
May not matter, but I'd like to see "pure" answers
 
:)
... damn Because is 7 letters
Double checking: Do "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)" count as one song?
 
I was thinking that they probably do.
 
@Sp3000 Mmm, they're different enough to count as distinct songs. (Way farther away than the revolutions)
 
2:20 AM
Oh? That's interesting then, this might actually be doable :)
 
The real bottleneck for me here is the length of the song names...
I think I've got a working pseudo-Snowman solution here, now I just need to wrestle it into triangle/hexagon format in as little code as possible
 
Chat has led me to believe people are flagrantly disregarding this rule: :P
> You must choose your three favorite Beatles songs. (Well, try to.)
 
I have no favorite Beatles song. Does that mean I'm off the hook? :P
 
From Me/Us to You is kinda koopholable I realize but I think I'll allow it
 
^^ ditto
 
2:22 AM
I think that means you lose automatically.
 
D:
If that were the case, I would do to the question what your avatar suggests.
 
Play it? It's clearly a play button, as seen on a sideways player.
 
@Doorknob As long as you tried to think of your favorites. That's all I ask.
 
@Geobits Sidevoting confirmed once again...
 
^ Invert Geobits' avatar and it looks like an N64 controller C button

2:29 AM
I was always a playstation person, so inverse N64 makes sense.
 
If you turn my avatar into a yellow circle, it also looks like an N64 controller button.
 
If you do nothing to Calvin's avatar it looks like he stole it from a comic strip.
 
If you cat my avatar it looks like a PNG file.
 
Most cats are bad at doorknobs.
 
That's a really good thing.

> If you're going to break the rules, be clever ;)
That's supposed to be an unwritten rule :o
 
@Doorknob What's the technical term those metal bars that span the width of a door that you push to open? (You must be the expert..)
 
@Calvin'sHobbies ....push bars?
 
Uhhhhhh... metal-door-bar-openy-thingy. That is definitely a very official term that I did not just make up.
 
2:38 AM
Push bar sounds alright, if laymanish.
 
I think I set a really low initial bar for hexagons :P
 
Ah-ha! I have a Befunge solution!
 
Here's the closest Wikipedia article I could find, referring specifically to those bars when used on emergency doors.
A crash bar (also known as a panic bar, exit device, panic device, or a push bar) is a device for unlocking a door during emergency conditions. The mechanism consists of a spring-loaded metal bar fixed horizontally to the inside of an outward-opening door. When the lever is either pushed or depressed, it activates a mechanism which unlatches the door allowing occupants to leave quickly from the building. == BackgroundEdit == Following the events of the Victoria Hall disaster in Sunderland, England in 1883 in which more than 180 children died because a door had been bolted at the bottom of...
 
@Sp3000 HOLY MOLY.
 
If it floats, it boats.
 
2:40 AM
Oh yea that kind is a panic bar around here.
 
I might have a Snowman solution in 13! (it outputs to STDERR a bunch in the combined version, but that doesn't matter)
 
13 seconds? Minutes? Days? When will we see it?
 
13 factorial?
 
Dammit, these ninjas are everywhere.
 
sigh
 
2:41 AM
 
Befunge in 15. Dang. Probably could be made a bit smaller. Maybe.
 
Nice, Snowman in 13 works :D (albeit spits out 4 errors in the process)
 
I guess I do have that going for me. No errors.
Does Befunge even have errors? I don't think it does.
 
Overflows probably
 
/me plans to suppress errors by default in the next Snowman version, requiring an explicit flag to output them. :P
Posted Snowman solution in base width of 13. I can't believe Snowman is actually winning for once \o/
 
2:48 AM
... for now :P
 
@Doorknob Can you link to the snowman documentation?
 
For now. I could probably get a shorter Befunge solution.
 
whoops, I even put [Snowman 1.0.2]() like I always do but forgot to put the actual link
 
I really need to implement something that makes it easier to lay these out.
 
@Sp3000 That's why I said "winning." :P
 
2:50 AM
Oh right, present tense :P
If you put it that way, I could probably be "winning" a challenge in, er, Malbolge if I tried
I'd just have to post it fast enough :D
 
... valid point. :P

3:03 AM
The only reason the Snowman response looks good is the ginormous Python solution right next to it.
 
:D
 
Haha
 
Alright, done writing the explanations. Going to sleep now, that was fun :D
 
Maybe next time we should all post a massive solution as the first one, then follow it up with a tiny one so that it looks extra awesome
 
lolz
Finally posted mine.
 
3:16 AM
+1 because your "hexagon" doesn't look like a hexagon at all.
 
lolz
The fact that the only no-op is a space kinda made it difficult to line it up properly.
 
You can pad the useless parts with other chars so it's easier to see where the program moves
 
3:31 AM
I'm really curious what people think of this kind of challenge: meta.codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/7002/9498 . I don't really want to post it if it's not something people would like
 
Sounds like a job for an object-oriented golfing language
I was going to make one of those once, but never did
 
Definitely thought it said "Moose Machine"
 
On a different note, is there a way to hide some of the content of an answer? I think I've seen that on questions, but I don't know how it's done.
 
Spoiler-hide or collapse-hide?
 
You can collapse/hide snippets
>! for spoilers
 
3:53 AM
@Geobits Collapse-hide. Like, I kinda want to leave a previous Befunge answer viewable once I come up with a better one, though I suppose the revision history will have it.
 
Yea, the only collapse-hide is snippets. I haven't tried abusing them that way yet, but I assume it would work ;)
 
If you put it in a snippet you could collapse hide it but that would be confusing because the snippet wouldn't be executable but would still have a big "RUN" button on it.
 
Solution: Make Befunge runnable in snippets :P
 
Didn't someone do that in one of Calvin's challenges?
 
It's in the snippet interpreter challenge already
 
3:56 AM
Oh, okay. Cool.
 
93 is, at least
 
I always forget about that challenge. The one challenge that's legitimately useful for something here :D
(Ok, maybe not the only one, but still)
 
It's definitely the challenge I open the most - that BF debugger is pretty useful
 
4:23 AM
Ouch... I just spent the last 45 minutes figuring out how to compile gtest via g++ such that I can actually use it without waiting 15 or more seconds for compile. Precompiled headers and an object file later, it now takes 6 seconds.
 
4:36 AM
Darnit @Sp3000, you're not making things easy for me here!
 
Sp makes life difficult for everyone by being awesome at everything. :P
 
Hello :)

What's up?
 
SHOOT. GolfScript with 9?!? Ugh.
 
4:44 AM
@Shebang ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ What's up with you, broseph?
 
Very busy with university-related stuff
 
Yeah? What classes are you taking?
I think you've told me before but I can't recall.
 
Only 3 this term: Elementary Algorithm Design and Data Abstraction, Algebra for Honours Mathematics and Calculus 1 for Honours Mathematics.
But we moved in ~2 weeks before the start of classes, along with a lot of friends. So, we did as many university students do when they have no responsibilities.. :P
 
Ooh, the first class sounds like fun. (Well, they all do. I loved calculus.)
I assume there were plenty of shenanigans in those 2 weeks.
 
You loved calculus? I still love calculus. When I come across a calc problem, I struggle not dropping whatever I'm doing to work on it.
 
4:53 AM
I mean I loved taking the courses.
I still love calc.
 
Yay
I think it's interesting how the TAs for my classes come to me when they are confused...
 
Haha
 
Lolz. That's a nice position to be in...
 
Srsly.
 
Ah, I see Dennis' answer, right on time
 
4:58 AM
It's not for all my classes, and they don't come to me for their classes, but for when they are confused over something a student is confused about

Q: Person of Interest

Zach GatesBackground Person of Interest is a crime drama on CBS, and my favorite TV show, as of late. The show is about a man named Harold, a billionaire programmer, and his partner Reese, a special forces veteran and ex-CIA operative. This programmer created a sentient AI called "The Machine" that predi...

 
The TAs we had for math classes were all excellent. At least based on my theory, only people who are pretty smart in the first place study math. And the best of them get research positions, where they are also TAs. CS classes were a different matter entirely. It was a very popular degree, and attracted a mixed bunch. And most of the best graduates went for industry jobs, and passed on research/teaching.
 
Yeah for my math classes, the TAs have all been grad students
For my CS classes, the TAs are people who took the class either the semester before, or two semesters before.
I'm actually still a little bugged that they didn't hire me as a TA for the intro programming class.... The interviewer said I didn't tutor well. The problem was teaching about modulo and I kind of rely on feedback from the person I'm teaching... there was absolutely no feedback...
 
Oh, I see. I believe our TAs were all at least PhD students, and partly research assistants that already had a PhD. Still, in CS, not all of them were very convincing.
 
5:15 AM
My favorite thing my CS TAs have done is mark me down 10 points out of 100 on a test because they didn't know you could use the ternary operator with L-values.
They gave me 10 out of 20 points for that problem because I "had the right idea"
So I clearly understood C++ better than the TAs...
 
It could be worse. I got a relatively bad grade in one of my final exams because one of the professors did not understand how the modulo operator worked. Fortunately there was a second professor there, and he confirmed that I was right. It cost a lot of time, and my grade was still bad. They let me repeat the exam, but it ended up hurting my final grade.
 
Boo
The 10% would have affected my final grade, so I pestered my professor about it
It took the entire remaining half of the semester before he finally changed my grade
Meanwhile, I went to ideone.com and gave him examples to show that what I did was valid c++. In all version of c++ that ideone.com had. I also gave him a C example and showed that it did not work.
Probably the thing that bugged me the most about the class was that we were required to use certain header files that the TAs made. The header files all had using namespace std. That bit me a few times. Urgh.
 
It does seem kind of uncommon to use the ternary operator for l-values. I think I just stumbled over something mentioning it recently. I either never knew it before, or forgot about it. I believe it's legal in C++, but not in C?
 
That's right
But you can do the same in C if you use pointers and dereference the pointer when you assign.
 
At least they should look it up of there's any doubt. It's not hard to find if you're specifically looking for it.
 
5:26 AM
Yes
I don't think the TAs even knew the words "l-value" or "r-value"
I guess I was a little too pleased that I was able to write the answer in two lines of code rather than the 10-15 they gave us to do it.

I predict an insanely popular Hexagony answer for the Beatles challenge.
 
6:14 AM
I golfed this CodingBat problem, has22, before I knew about code golfing.
I think the best I and my friends got was like 37 characters.
 
'2, 2'in`l`?
unless it has 2-digit numbers
 
That just returns false for all tests.
Wait, I wrote that wrong.
has22=lambda n:'2, 2'in`n`
 
has22=lambda l:'2, 2'in`l` is oll correct for me
 
Ah, there we go.
It is, however, technically wrong. They just didn't think to include something like [12, 2].
 
6:38 AM
@Dennis Yes, that's what I was thinking of immediately, that Martin would have to write a solution for the hexagon challenge in his crazy hexagon language. But the triangular sub-parts might be somewhat problematic, since all his programs need to be hexagonal?
 
Hexagony completely ignores whitespace and arranges the characters in a hexagonal pattern.
 
^^ that
 
Oh, that's right.
He normally shows them as hexagons, but I saw that when I looked at the language description earlier.
 
@Dennis btw in case you missed it: link. GolfScript should have been the more obvious choice though, in hindsight :P
 
Yeah, I missed that. CJam would have been painful though. No no-ops and no "super comments".
 
6:42 AM
Your score of 9 will be hard to beat by anything. With 7, you only have 32 bytes total, which will be tough for 3 songs of at least 8 characters, and some quotes and control characters.
 
I'm already convinced that I cannot do a Befunge solution with 11.
 
I think Befunge 11 should be doable in a similar method to mine (directing upwards from the start)
... oh wait no, nevermind. One Two of the mirrors is are actually used on both sides
 
@RetoKoradi I tried 7 in GS, but I hit a wall. Maybe by carefully selecting the songs. I actually went with ones I liked...
 
The only ones I found with obvious parts in common were too short. I think there was "Boys" and "Bad Boys" on the list, but they are both less than 8. I captured a bunch of titles with exactly 8, and they don't have much in common. The ones I know with 8 characters are "Hey Jude" (my favorite), "Michelle", and "Get Back".
 
I like Hey Jude too, but that would have wasted a character. Yesterday is my clear favorite.
 
6:53 AM
That's an obvious classic. It was in our middle school song book.

@trichoplax >can't figure out how to start writing >sees that top entry is 5 bytes
 
I once wrote a question that I thought would attract long complex answers, and it was solved optimally in under an hour, in 13 bytes, ruling out the possibility of any further answers.
It wasn't even a golf question...
 
O-O
I've been on here for over a year and a half and I've yet to write a question
 
There seem to be some people who specialise in either asking or answering. Personally I feel more inclined to asking
 
I like answering because you can objectively tell whether it's correct or not
with questions I'm really unsure all the time hehe
 
The answers that come in give a fairly objective measure of how good a question is. The question I just mentioned seemed like a good one until I posted it, then the answer made clear that it was not...
That's the only time I've posted a question without sandboxing it first. Lesson learnt... :)

I went on tumblr
the only sport I like is ice hockey
...oh god I'm a canadian trapped in a south african's body
 
12:27 PM
is there even an ice rink in south africa?
 
@Fatalize there are 3 or 4 that I know of - I'm actually a sort of decent skater, but not hockey
not girly enough for me hhhhh
okay, from reading the wikipedia article, I hate lisp
 
Hockey is pretty girly hides from canadians
 
@Fatalize lmao, well...when I played it there were lots of beeg guys and I didn't fit in so
now I play code golf
 
there are also a lot of big guys in Code Golf
mostly because they sit in front of their computers all day though :p
 
they are gentle giants

ew, do you really have to curry everything in scheme?
wrfdoadivs
 
@Fatalize full disclosure: i'm canadian, though i don't particularly like hockey
that being said, i don't understand what is girly about hockey
literally the whole sport is "people with blades strapped to their feet hit shit with big sticks and then punch each other"

@undergroundmonorail honhon that was easy
 
???????????
 
of course it's no girly
but saying it is enough to attract canadians it seems :p
 
12:48 PM
just like when you say Rugby is tougher than american football
dem 'muricans come screaming
 
if i stand outside and scream "hockey is girly" will cute boys flock to fight me
 
i wasn't like personally offended, just confused
 
@cjfaure it depends if you're a girl or not, not sure most canadian guys would fight a girl even for such an offense
 
@Fatalize eeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhh, i'm a trans gal tbh
 
also if you live in SA i'm pretty sure screaming "Hockey is girly" outside will only get you "... the fuck?" reactions
 
12:52 PM
yeah :D
or "YEAH! RUGBY FTW!!! HE'S GONNA PRESS A THREE"
