I'm looking at putting some e-mail contact addresses on a web site, and wanted to make it difficult for spammers to harvest them. I found some Python code that I can call within my application. http://www.zapyon.de/spam-me-not/ It works exactly as expected. However, I am concerned that the technique used for obsfucating the e-mail address may be a bit weak.

Hi, first, python is one of my fav languages, and i'll definitely keep developing with it. But, there's 1 one thing what I -really- miss: data hiding. I know member vars are private when you prefix them with 2 underscores, but I hate prefixing my vars, I'd rather add a keyword before it. Python advertises himself as a full OOP language, but why does it miss one of the basic principles of OOP? Will it ever be added to python?

So secretly an integer object is created for 123456 and then a and b are both given a reference to it. This is a different mechanism than the other case, where the builtin integer cache causes the literal 100 to refer to the same object each time it is...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

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,...
