    I've actually been using that site as a reference for some more basic function pointer stuff but didn't see anything directly related to typecasting. Does the callback/functor material actually...

    Typecasting a void* to a function pointer

    Is there any way to do this?

    In a program I'm writing there is a class called "command", which is intended to be an element in a list of function calls; it is supposed to contain a pointer to a...

    The maximum in any category is 36. The average is set to 21, so anything above that is at least decent if not great. A "good" score would be somewhere in the middle; maybe 29 or higher.

    It's clearly fake. The lack of clouds is extremely suspicious but the day/night pattern is what seals it - notice that Northern Greenland, Iceland, and Norway are all illuminated. The Columbia...

    He won by one electoral vote, I think.

    We are the only country in the world that uses the electoral system. I guess places like France and Canada are governed by "mob rule"?

    According to Mathematica:

    ProductLog[z] satisfies the differential equation dw/dz = w/(z(1+w)).

    It's approximately equal to x - x^2 + 3/2 x^3 - 8/3 x^4.

    There's apparently no way to solve...
