Re: Plans for the weekend!

I'll be going fishing with my dog.
We'll cook the fish next to the campfire and sleep underneath the stars.
I'll most likely kill meantime whittling a wooden indian (native american) or reading a few books.

Re: Emacs vs Vim Map

So this isn't a holy war itself, but does anyone know if anyone's ever put together a map of where each editor is used? It wouldn't surprise me at all to find pretty strong regional correlations. For instance, at my undergrad, emacs was the preferred editor since the sophomore-level C/assembly clas...

Most people are quite capable of pareidolia.

That's why it's unimpressive if it's a *super*power.


I'm questioning the *super* part, as normal people are perfectly capable of it.

You are correct, thanks.

Re: Coding: Hacks and Snippets

A polymorphic type is a type that can assume different types in different contexts. For example, a value that's an instance of the type [a] (List of a, where a is a type variable) can assume the types [Int], [String], [[a]] or any other type, depending on what the context required. The value itself...

Re: Unimpressive superpowers

hardly any of these are superpowers imho. they're mostly just tasks that if taken to be a superpower would obviously be unimpressive.
i was hoping to find actual superpowers that were still considered mundane.
the toe one is hardly lame though.

Haskell. Leksah (et al.?) renders it that way. It's like APL, except it's reasonably readable. Emacs and yi can do it too (don't know about vim). Those are actual unicode letters in the file, not just rendered in the buffer. Unicode is fully supported in Haskell, and with -XUnicodeSyntax ghc will u...

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

It's just an agreed upon way to distinguish the two. We won't put a space between a function name and its parameters and we will put a space between a syntactic keyword and whatever comes next, like a conditional.

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

It's annoying when people don't distinguish between control structures and function calls.

This:

Code: Select all

if(foo > bar && (baz - qux) < 0)


Should be this:

Code: Select all

if (foo > bar && (baz - qux) < 0)


That much is obvious.
