Right from the time the first edition of K&R was released, the advantages of using symbolic constants, as opposed to "magic numbers", has been emphasized ---- and for good reason. I don't dispute that at all. However, it gets on my nerves when people carry this practice too far. Consider these examples (from the code written by a distinguished colleague): #define DASH '-' #define SLASH '/' #define SINGLE_BYTE 1

Hello! I would like to introduce a keyboard shortcut for refreshing the user interface in many programs. In english locales it's often F5 which is used, but how about other locales and/or preferences. Should I simply bind the refresh feature to F5 or is there a symbolic Shortcut for refreshment? Comment: I think there must be symbolic key, because my IBM ThinkPad A31p has a refresh button which refreshes in Internet Explorer, but it...

i have a python program which attempts to call 'cls' but fails: sh: line 1: cls: command not found i tried creating an alias from cls to clear in .profile, .cshrc, and /etc/profile, but none of these options seem to work. my conclusion is that a python program that is executing does not use the shell (because it does not recognize shell aliases). is this correct?

Hi, I've done this before so I don't see what I could doing wrong here. I'm running mysql 5x on freebsd. I'm using the default data directory of "/var/db/mysql" In there I have several dozen mysql datasbases that are functioning perfectly. I am trying to add a database which will be stored on a different drive, therefore the entry in "/var/db/mysql" should be a symbolic link

I am trying to create a link to a file, which I can then use in an HTML page. The system is Linux on a hosted web service, running python 2.3. Other than that I have no knowledge of the system. The link is created OK, but when I try to use it as filename for the IMG TAG, it does not get displayed. The page source of the created page is pointing to the link as temp/test1.jpg

Hi, I've developed a MFC program under VS 6.0. My debugger *was* working fine and I've used it often for my project. Then, one day, the errors below appear and they prevent me from using the debugger. I know that I get these warnings because the OS symbols arn't installed (a few of them loaded fine). As far as I can remember, I didn't touch anything that should mess with the debugger so I don't know how to fix it and I need to be able to...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
