Here are four more mini-mysteries for your amusement and edification. In this episode, the program output is not shown. Your goal is to predict the output and, if anything mysterious occurs, then explain what happened (again, in blindingly obvious terms). There's extra credit for giving a design insight as to why things are as they are.

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 could be possible to add Pythonistic syntax to Lisp or Scheme, while keeping all of the...

When I type the following code in the interactive python shell, I get 'UTF-8'; but if I put the code into a Python script and run the script - in the same terminal on my Linux box in which I opened the python shell before -, I get 'ANSI_X3.4-1968'. How does that come? Thanks in advance for your answers! Nuff.

If you are into 3d programming, you may be interested in this book: _Essential Mathematics for Games and Interactive Applications_ http://tinyurl.com/4wrl6 I just bought it on a lark. After looking it over, I have to say it looks to be well written. The reason I'm mentioning it here is because it comes with what looks to be a pretty nice C++ library. The licensing terms for the CD seem quite reasonable. Basically, you can use the...

Since the idea of encoding mathematics using MathML is being very far from popular due to a number of factors -expensive tools, bad accesibility of generated code, unusual verbosity, lack of adequate support, special fonts, namespaces, special plugins, backward incompatiblity of MathML with other internet technologies, duplication of code, and others-, alternative encodings are spreading over the internet. Probably the most popular one...

I just upgraded from Python 2.4.2 to Python 2.5.1 and have found some unexpected behavior that appears to be a bug in the os.stat module. My OS is Windows XP SP2 + all updates. I have several programs that have worked flawlessly on all previous Python versions for years and they are now producing incorrect results in the code that uses os.stat. Searching through the 2.5.1 release notes I found the following:

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,...
