Share the jokes please ! An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned right before the phone rang. The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady....

How do you compare Python to Lisp? What specific advantages do you think that one has over the other? Note I'm not a Python person and I have no axes to grind here. This is just a question for my general education. Mark

I 'm following various posting in "comp.lang.ada, comp.lang.c++ , comp.realtime, comp.software-eng" groups regarding selection of a programming language of C, C++ or Ada for safety critical real-time applications. The majority of expert/people recommend Ada for safety critical real-time applications. I've many years of experience in C/C++...

Hey Recently, I researched using C++ for game programming and here is what I found: C++ game developers spend a lot of their time debugging corrupted memory. Few, if any, compilers offer completely safe modes. Unsurprisingly, there is a very high failure rate among projects using C++ for modern game development.

I think everyone who used Python will agree that its syntax is the best thing going for it. It is very readable and easy for everyone to learn. But, Python does not a have very good macro capabilities, unfortunately. I'd like to know if it may be possible to add a powerful macro system to Python, while keeping its amazing syntax, and if it...

no this is no trollposting and please don't get it wrong but iam very curious why people still use C instead of other languages especially C++. i heard people say C++ is slower than C but i can't believe that. in pieces of the application where speed really matters you can still use "normal" functions or even static methods which is...

in March, i posted a essay “What is Expressiveness in a Computer Language”, archived at: http://xahlee.org/perl-python/what_is_expresiveness.html I was informed then that there is a academic paper written on this subject. On the Expressive Power of Programming Languages, by Matthias Felleisen, 1990....

Microsoft Hatred, FAQ Xah Lee, 20020518 Question: U.S. Judges are not morons, and quite a few others are not morons. They find MS guilty, so it must be true. Answer: so did the German population thought Jews are morons by heritage, to the point that Jews should be exterminated from earth. Apparently, the entire German population cannot...

Java programmers seem to always be whining about how confusing and overly complex C++ appears to them. I would like to introduce an explanation for this. Is it possible that Java programmers simply aren't smart enough to understand C++? This is not merely a whimsical hypothesis. Given my experience with Java programmers --- the code they...

The war of the OSes was won a long time ago. Unix has always been, and will continue to be, the Server OS in the form of Linux. Microsoft struggled mightily to win that battle -- creating a poor man's DBMS, a broken email server and various other /application/ servers to try and crack the Internet and IS markets. In the case where they...

I am trying to compile as much code in 64 bit mode as possible to test the 64 bit version of lcc-win. The problem appears now that size_t is now 64 bits. Fine. It has to be since there are objects that are more than 4GB long. The problem is, when you have in thousands of places

PEP 1 specifies that PEP authors need to collect feedback from the community. As the author of PEP 3131, I'd like to encourage comments to the PEP included below, either here (comp.lang.python), or to python-3000@python.org In summary, this PEP proposes to allow non-ASCII letters as identifiers in Python. If the PEP is accepted, the...

Hey guys, I'm new here, just a simple question. I'm learning to Program in C, and I was recommended a book called, "Mastering C Pointers", just asking if any of you have read it, and if it's worth the $25USD. I'm just looking for a book on Pointers, because from what I've read it's one of the toughest topics to understand. thanks in...

Jargons of Info Tech industry (A Love of Jargons) Xah Lee, 2002 Feb People in the computing field like to spur the use of spurious jargons. The less educated they are, the more they like extraneous jargons, such as in the Unix & Perl community. Unlike mathematicians, where in mathematics there are no fewer jargons but each and every...
