Maybe you just have to accept that you write clean code nowadays.
I can't see anything wrong there.
Well, except that those string transformers seem remarkably similar.

Man, writing C++ is barbaric.
What are you writing?
Well, because the library that supports my app isn't properly supported, we have to have iOS/Android devs write some code for the C++ library sometimes.
Today (and tomorrow) is that time for me.
Oh. So, do you try to write a it as a unit, or do you swap devs among a single "feature"?
No. When I have an iOS feature that needs something in the library that's not done yet, I go do it.
So, you guys aren't just randomly swapping people just so you don't have to work on C++ as much.
1:05 AM
That sentence doesn't make sense.
What should be happening is that there should be a few dedicated C++ developers so you don't have iOS/Android devs guessing at things.
There is only 1 dedicated library developer.
I was just confirming that you guys weren't just cycling each other through regardless of where someone was in a unit they were implementing.
I'm going to guess that there are only a couple of the iOS devs who would write any C++ code. Most of them wouldn't have the slightest clue.
Do you know how to check two strings from the C++ standard library for equal value?
In Swift: string1 == string2
In Java: string1.equals(string2)
In C++: std::strcmp(string1.data(), string2.data()) == 0
C++ uses == I think. At least, that is what I used back when I wrote VC++.
You've got to be kidding me. This is barbaric.
It looks like you are writing C.
Can't you just #include <string>?
Then, you can use == just fine, I think.
1:19 AM
Q: Differences between C++ string == and compare()?

KlaimI just read some recommendations on using std::string s = get_string(); std::string t = another_string(); if( !s.compare(t) ) { instead of if( s == t ) { I'm almost always using the last one because I'm used to it and it feels natural, more readable. I didn't even know that there was a ...

Or is that not available in hard-core C++?
I guess I've been told wrong.
See, are you sure you aren't writing C?
I don't think C has namespaces.
It doesn't.
1:20 AM
And seriously, you could at least write an operation overload to use that.
I mean the thing is... there's not a C++ expert involved here.
@EthanBierlein Well, I meant a lot of people write C++ like it is C, without using the "C++" features.
The good news is, there are no unit tests for the whole library.
I can detect sarcasm there.
The API layer has few or none unit tests as well. They have load tests, and that's basically it.
But... they're keeping a very keen eye on how many tests the client apps we're developing have...

@Duga half implemented half working (too many recursions) code
Hmm, I think it begs the question though. We allow . Would we allow ?
for reasonable values of memory limit exceeded, yes
"does not work without 1 PB RAM" = what are you doing
@nhgrif Is that a thing?
So, if a user is somehow confident that the algorithm works, but the problem is the user can't call the function without a stack overflow exception, the question would be on-topic?
1:12 PM
@Mast it is!
TLE is usually a programming-challenge thing, I'm not sure whether they even check for memory usage.
is a real tag
@nhgrif That would be bad.
You get limits like "max storage allowed is O(n^2)"
@nhgrif I'm aware, but we're talking memory here.
@Pimgd I've never encountered those, do you happen to have an example with that?
1:15 PM
I do not, but I have taken programming tests with memory limits
My god, this answer has a table of contents.
Specifically, codility
They call it space complexity
Eh, to me, if you are using more than the acceptable amount of time or memory, you're failing on acceptance criteria--your code does not work as accepted (it wouldn't be accepted by QA).
I think for codility it was to stop you from doing silly things
Sounds like a good idea.
1:19 PM
like a prime calculator that has the first 10000 primes hardcoded
which is conveniently all they ask for
Ah, Codility also has a time-limit for how long you're allowed to take per solution.
I should take a closer look at that site this weekend.
yes, which was annoying
ToDo += 1
It's semi-stressful for no real reason
you get 1 hour for two exercises and it's like shit shit shit shit in 1 hour how
@Pimgd The point is you're practising for real interviews. Those usually have a time-limit as well.
1:22 PM
and then 25 minutes in you've got 2 solutions that need cleaning
@Mast for me, it was a test to filter interview candidates
the downside is that that 1 hour is not long enough to properly test your solutions
You can write the solutions and debug them
but the edge cases, you can't write unit tests in that time
so it's hard to get things completely working
Q: Swift replacement for C's for-loop

Hi, how should I manage such answer : https://codereview.stackexchange.com/a/120533/80949 ?
What I did: downvote, comment to explain what is wrong (in my opinion), and flag as 'not an anwser'
I'm wondering if the flag is too much...
Bad answer or not an answer?
Ok, maybe I should have chosen "very low quality"
@Pimgd is that what you mean?
2:12 PM
well, I think that if it's what you describe;
then is apple and orange e.g. not an answer
I formatted it
maybe it looks better now
The idea usually is that an answer like this is either A) deleted by the poster or B) edited by the poster to contain the correct answer
Yes it does (a bit): thanks!

However, the first 4 lines are totally irrelevant to the problem (it's seems to be some PHP code to get the filesize)
And the python codes makes the same mistake: sorting by filesize instead of last modification time.
speaking about monkeys, I just had banana cake

should be flagged, that's for sure

The closest you'd get is destructuring in the function parameters
thing is function args are lost (when minifying) and that behaviour would never work with things like .apply or .call
Isn't there a way you structure parameters into an object before passing them into a function? Something with ...?
could you give me a quick example of the expected input and output (without the structuring)?
There isn't any context. This was just a continuation of a discussion Quill and I were having.

@Pimgd You could talk about it in the Nth
@Mat'sMug Not helpful ^^
Voting irregularities, that's not something that happens often on Code Review, right?
I don't think so.

@CaptainObvious That guy must have an ego the size of the Empire State building.
I'm going to deflate it by telling him that his function is broken.
He has more iffy questions like that.
I guess it isn't broken.
Anyone have time for a stupid n00b android question?

Q: Script optimisation to make an image fit a div properly with ratio respect and overflow on Load/Resize

SéaneI've tried my best (i'm new to JS) to write a script that make an image fit to its parent div with respect of the ratio and overflowing when needed. For exemple, if the height of the image is smaller than the window's height, I set the height equal to the window's height and the width overflow t...

@JohnP We don't have many Android developers here I think.

Q: A small simulation framework

RononDexSo I continued working on my small simulation framework, that can be used to simulate all kinds of stuff in science, or can be used to create a game engine. https://github.com/RononDex/Simulation In the "Simulation Testing" folder you can find an example on how to use the engine. I am especiall...

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it belongs – assuming that the code works as intended – over on Code Review. — David Thomas 18 secs ago
@NathanHughes would you mind doing a quick code review? It's just 10 small classes out of which half are similar. — user3275095 52 secs ago
See the help center over at Code Review; if your code works as intended that's where you should post your code for a "quick code review" ;-) — Mat's Mug 1 min ago
I just posted the same on Code Review. I guess this question should be closed here. — Soham Dasgupta 10 secs ago

Q: Javascript minimalist hyperscript implementation

Soham DasguptaI've tried to roll out my own hyperscript implementation. I would be interested in any suggestions to improve it or point me to any other better implementation which is still maintained. I checked the hyperscript project, but it doesn't seem to have any recent updates. My humble effort at this -...

@CaptainObvious Can you run that in the hyperloop?
Those little phrases that foretell a world of problems…
@CommitStrip oooh yeah

Q: Connect Four in Python

AKorI've made a working version of Connect Four in Python. I'm pretty new to Python so it's decently primitive. Please take a look and let me know what you think! import random board = [["." for x in range(7)] for x in range(6)] symbol = "" winCondition = "" fullCols = [] def boardLogic(pick, user...

I did indeed write a local version of the required classes and stub out the methods just so the compiler would locate them. That's my purpose for now. In future I will ensure the XName constants are defined when the xsd is created and watch for misuses in code reviews. — axeman 29 secs ago
Q: Team Fortress 2 item price lookup using Trade.tf developer API and Steam WebAPI

TexenoxI've made a nice little Python program using the requests module using the Trade.tf Developer API and the Steam WebAPI allowing the user to look up the price of Team Fortress 2 items through Trade.tf's spreadsheet. For those of you that may not know, Team Fortress 2 is a free-to-play team-based ...

Q: How to convince company to not "go overboard" with email signature?

KlaymenDKThe "signature culture" at my company is dangerously close to ridiculous, and this question made me ask about it here.

Q: Beginner PHP calculator

rskelI've spent the last few evenings learning PHP, CSS and HTML through Codecademy and now on Team Treehouse. My goal is to progress with PHP over the next year or two and perhaps obtain Zend cert. Anyway, I've worked on a simple calculator to test what I've learned. I'd like to see, (given the same...

@StackExchange Any Safari users here? Seems localized to that browser.

@MattS No, the OP says: For autocomplete functionality, is my syntax accurate? so he is asking us to test/debug his code. CodeReview is for improving code that is known to work. — Caridorc 1 min ago

I don't need to have dinner today.
I've had my fair share of spaghetti just from coding.
@DanPantry In case you miss any salt, playing a game should fix that as well!
@skiwi oh i'm salty alright.
so salty i played yasuo.
and lost lane
so salty that if you put me in a river, i'd float.
salt + hash

I have to correct my float comment to sink, as more salt makes you denser than water, which is why you always float on the dead sea.
I guess you could say I made a floating point error.
8:56 PM
@DanPantry it's "hash", not "hasch" ....
@Mat'sMug there's a joke in there but I'm not sure what it is
pls explain :(
i googled "Hasch" and all I found was the swedish wikipedia for cannabis
makes you float too
