Re: Subject/Object/Verb ordering in code

@Sizik In this instance coord would be the object whose 'x' we are trying to get. EG:

Code: Select all

coord my_coord = {10,20};
printf("%d",coord_get_x(my_coord));//c-style
cout<<my_coord.get_x();//c++-style


Thus I think it counts as the subject. Perhaps I should have chosen a clearer example.

Subject/Object/Verb ordering in code

There are six possible orderings of subjects, objects, and verbs in sentences. By far the most common orderings are Subject-Object-Verb (Latin/Japanese), and Subject-Verb-Object(Mandarin-English). You can read more about this phenomena here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word_order. What I have notic...

Re: Braces vs indent vs "end ..." syntax preference

Personally, I can't stand tab bracing, because sometimes I want to drop my indenting for a good reason. For example: #include <stdio.h> int showHelp() { printf("\ help [-h] -- Displayes this help message.\n\ -h -- Redundant"); } // showHelp() int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { switch (argc...

Re: 1448: "Question"

I have always loved the last question (I read it about 4 times a year), if you like that kind of moment that makes you think, there is (of course) a subreddit for it. I only found it last night, but its /r/frisson (I'll admit that I stayed up a tad too late contemplating the universe after a brief s...

Engineering Typesetting

I realized that this war isn't here yet. Which do you use to typeset engineering documents (often math heavy, but not as math heavy as we'd all like to believe)? Basically, if you were taking notes for an engineering lecture, how would you do it? I find that TeX is fun to use, but takes me too long....

Re: 1324:"Weather"

I'm with Brandesianisme, I often end up reading the latest comic and then spending hours trolling wikipedia and related links on a learning spree. However, wikipedia tends to be less helpful when it comes to getting a background knowledge on how an entire field (like meteorology) operates. I would l...

Re: Recommend a book

Hello, I am new to the fora, but I love xkcd and have a few books to recommend. I am not sure if they have been posted yet, but oh well. 1. Description of a Struggle, by Franz Kafka I honestly don't know what the hell that was about. It starts off pretty normal, just some kind of gathering with a co...
