Try getting a good reception on an iWhatever inside a car and then try changing channels on the move.
FIlters on coal fired power stations and industrial chimneys, catalysts and DPFs on vehicles and a ban on coal heating in cities. Why China can't manage these simple tasks is anyones guess. Its not like they don't have the money.
Chuck some water over the Glasshole.
Can't see it being that much work. For method foo in class baa just define the actual function name to be __baa_foo or similar. For a virtual function __baa_v_foo and so on. For overloaded functions __baa_foo1, __baa_foo2 etc. You'd need to know how the names were mapped to which method but its still better than the current mess.
So how would you define a precompiler then?
"I have no idea why you think binary literals are all that much more useful than octal or hex"
Binary literals are extremely useful when you're dealing with bits in specific places in a byte/word/etc. Its a lot clearer to read and a lot easier to write than trying to encode and decode into hex or oct.
"Standardizing it would accomplish very little, and there's no need for the runtime to know the mangled name."
Oh really? Just how do you think dlopen() finds the functions in a
I think your inexperience in the world of low level programming is showing.
Newsflash - when you're writing a kernel you want to know exactly what is being created during compilation, when memory will be allocated and how is going to be laid out during runtime and when it gets free'd up. ie - it HAS to be explicit otherwise your OS is going to end up in a mess. What you don't want is a load of C++ implicit code and memory allocation happening when you need tight control of both.
Now get back to application programming and leave the OS coding to people who know what they're talking about.
Sorry pal, Cfront was a preprocessor in the same vein as Oracles PRO*C. If calling it a compiler makes you feel better about using it then all well and good - but it wasn't. A lot of code went straight through it unchanged, it only processed the specifically C++ parts.
.... you can get your news sources from all over the world. You're no longer limited to watching the same group of TV or radio stations or newspapers. There's NO reason for anyone with access to the internet to be uninformed.
Pal, any radioactivity inside pluto has long since decayed. Its a TINY world with no internal or external heat source. The chances of anything still being liquid inside are pretty much zero.
Yeah , usenet is still around. There arn't many servers that still carry it even for a price, but there is one good free one - aioe.org though how much longer it'll be around is anyones guess. Google seem to be doing their best to stuff up google groups however.
Quite. Its amazing how many people today still think the internet = the web. Mention stuff like ftp, gopher, archie or WAIS and you just get blank looks.
Agreed. Byte was shutdown for unknown reasons buy its publisher - its circulation at the time was still way higher than most tech magazines. It could easily have still made a ton of money and still be going.
... that MS is hemorrhaging all its decent technical staff and now the idiots are taking over the asylum at the technical level just like they've already done at the design and management level? One thing MS was usually pretty good at was testing its service packs/updates/[insert name of the week here] but this just seems like they really didn't bother doing it properly , or , they didn't have the technical know-how to do it.
I don't know many antifreezes that work at -230C , do you?
