[1396847195] J programming language

No.959282 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
J is one of the most widespread programming language with an insane level of difficulty that I personally have ever seen, not including esoteric programming languages (i.e. brainfuck, whitespace).

Are there any languages that /prog/ has found to be widely deployed but insanely difficult to learn? inb4 ASM

I have no regrets, this was the only path.

The task:

Print strings from "a" to "zzzzz" without using any loop or conditional statements. Don't just write all 1000 permutations out by hand. The output should look like this:

[1339576156] An OPEN letter to Lambda A. Calculus

This really is too much, Lambda. Your obsession with C has dangerously eroded your sense of reality. Why don't you adopt a nice and healthy lifestyle like the rest of us?

[1396813424] Trying to get friend back into C++

No.959253 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I have a referral I want to give to a struggling friend, but it requires solid C++ skills and he hasn't coded in C++ in 1.5 years.
He's a big security guy and the company does national security; I think it would be great for him.

How can I help him brush up on his C++?
Our school's core was C++
and he's done some DirectX in C++
So the foundation is there, he just needs a reminder.

[1369714221] Magical Computing

No.884617 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Would it be possible for a wizard to create a universal Turing machine that had an infinite amount of memory?

Also, if we could master magic, do you think that it would be possible to create a separate pocket universe for a computer, that could perform exhaustive searches of an infinite problem space in a way that would seem instant when observed from this universe?
