    Nope, that's four.



    I don't think that gives you what you need to reconstruct it...I tried, but couldn't seem to work out the unknowns.

    Here's a fun exercise/puzzle: How to represent a rectangle on a plane with just 3 values?

    There's no standardized way to query things like screen size and such in C, so that kind of layout isn't going to work. I would just print the label before each value (eg: "[Xn3 : 2] [Xn4: 3]", etc.)...

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. Refinement comes naturally with experience, and you can always spend time on such things when you have nothing better to do. In the meantime, just concentrate on...

    It makes no difference because in either case you're essentially manipulating a function pointer. One thing you *do* want to be careful with is static variables being used in functions that run in a...

    There is no such thing as "passing the function itself". A function is just a block of code that exists at some specific location (address) in memory. So in essense when you see a direct function...

    C doesn't define any kind of binary interface, so basically you have to compile the code for each platform. Compilers like GCC can produce output for many different machines (even simultaneously,...

    For some odd reason, this is always the first song that comes to mind when I think about sci-fi/space-travel. :D



    Eh, good sci-fi in film has always been hard to pull off. I guess that's why...

    Nope, I quit school and ran away from home at the age of fifteen, and thenceforth have been the sole provider for myself. I'm self-built, self-taught, and fully capable of making my own way in this...

    You know, centuries ago the sort of luxuries that we take for granted would have been considered a royal upgrade, to say the least. I think it's fair to say that we are currently living in the most...

    I have an uncle who once lost everything in the telecom business. He spent weeks living out of his car, trying to reestablish his income flow. Never asked for a penny, but he nonetheless made it out...

    I never implied that it was. Like any other state, it's got it's share of good and bad.



    I'm sorry, are you stuck in line at a soup kitchen somewhere? Are things really so bad for you that you...

    That's not how capitalism works! You INVEST money into some venture in hopes of yielding a higher return, that is the basis of capitalism. Yes, this necessarily means that someone in the supply and...

    He also lifted the Iron Curtain mate - don't forget that! Besides that, Reagan worked tirelessly to rally non-partisan support and cooperation in legislative matters, making him one of (if not *the*...

    That condition will always be true, so...

    >> if (i % 21) o << "\n";

    You probably want to be checking for a remainder of zero there, don't you think?

    You don't agree with me, fine, but the least you could do is actually formulate an intelligent counterargument, Jackass.

    I'm starting to get the feeling that noone here actually understands the crux of my argument. Well, we've all made our points, let's just move on then...

    Looks like a good book, by the way. :)

    1) "Deleting" a pointer causes it's destructor to be called (if any) and then relinquishes ownership of that chunk of memory back to the system to be used elsewhere. So the pointer itself is still...
