I am pretty sure that fflushing input streams does not do anything.

From the man page:

code:
Flushing  an  input  stream  discards any buffered input and
adjusts the file pointer such that the next input  operation
accesses  the  byte  after  the  last one read.

The OS X 10.5 manpage for fflush makes no mention of input streams; it only says the function will fail if the stream is "not open for writing".

I found it on this site http://www.hmug.org/man/3/fflush.php but I guess that's only for ISO C90?

Whenever you're using a Room in a parameter or return value, do Room * so it affects the real one, not the copy.

Looks like at least some browsers (Safari at least) treat & p i ) ; as & p i ;, which should render as the pi symbol.

I see the PI symbol, and I'm on Firefox 2. Looks like & p i itself makes the PI symbol (it ignores the character following it, i.e. doesn't wait for a semi-colon.)

You have absolutely no understanding of what you're talking about.

Doesn't adding another bit simply double the range (assuming you're only using non-negative numbers anyways.)

e.g. a signed byte is 0-127 (again, assuming you aren't using the negatives), but an unsigned byte can be 0-255. If you're adding another bit doesn't that, by definition, double your range?

Here's an algorithm that scales better with respect to integer size. I don't think it's a good idea to use a macro.

Why not? It can be verified that it works properly just like the function you posted can.

At that point someone from our company has travel to another company to do integration testing. Which just means we compile and run our code in the other company's environment and get both of our systems up and running and see that they actually work together as the spec says they should. Obviously there's usually problems at this point as it's the first time either company has interacted with each others' components.

How is this a problem from using "non-default" libraries? Instead of including a Header and CPP files in your project you include a Header and LIB files...

Why does it say that there's no such function when there clearly is, and I've even defined the function further up in the same file?

Ignoring possible overloads, then it should compile to identical code.

I've worked with people who prefer the '== false' on negative conditions, but omit the '== true' for positive conditions, on the grounds that it's harder to misread compared to the possibility of not spotting a small '!' tacked on to the front.

I'm in this boat. Unless it's obvious that you're going to be checking that something is false, I use == false.

How can something like that be possible?

A lot of the time you don't need a Bachelor's in CS to pursue a Master's in CS, for example a lot of schools will let you hop right into a Master's in CS program with a Physics or Math degree. Though you might need to take classes to satisfy prerequisites for the classes in the graduate school, you'll probably avoid taking any introductory programming classes, and often the Graduate CS classes are weighted more toward theory than programming, so you might not do much (if any) programming in Graduate school.

Okay, forget about the previous code I posted, let's say I dynamically allocate memory to an array of vector <int>'s like so:
code:
int fooNum = 5;
vector<int> *foo = new int[fooNum];
Now I want to free up the memory I just allocated. What do I need to type on the next line that would free up that memory?

That won't work, either. You can't take a pointer to vector<int> and assign it a pointer to space for fooNum ints.

Specifically, if you try to, you'd get this:

code:
error: cannot convert 'int*' to 'std::vector<int, std::allocator<int> >*' in initialization

If you'd just stop smoking pot all of the time I think you'd see all of the problems in your posts. Not to mention that half of the time you don't even properly capitalize, which shows how little you really care about your own posts.

I used TinyXML in a recent project and it's very simple to use. One thing to note, however, is that in the latest version on their website, it will not parse spaces in attributes of tags (it returns everything UP TO the first space).

What do you mean spaces in attributes of tags? This isn't valid XML: <House The Name="White House" />. Unless you mean spaces in the attribute values, then that's a pretty big bug that would be missed by the TinyXML team.

I have a function:

code:
void doSomething(int x){..}
Currently this code is being called, x is always a literal from an enum.

Is there any way, at compile time, to enforce then x can only be certain values, without breaking interface? Macros are fine.

If I am willing to break the interface, can templates and/or Macros solve this problem easily?

You can use Boost Static Asserts or roll your own Static Asserts (it's not hard using template trickery.)

Here's the Boost ones, I'm sure you can find an implementation of your own if you look around.

EDIT: Oh also static asserts won't work because the value of x is known only at runtime.

Oh I figured since it was a compile time check he wanted he was hardcoding calls to the function and wanted to make sure he was only using the subset of the allowed ones, or something. Obviously I wouldn't have suggested static asserts if I knew the values were run-time.

I'm playing around with TMP in GCC 4.3.2's half-implementation of C++0x, and I was wondering if there was a way to somehow do the following:

code:

template <char x, char... c>
struct mystruct {
...
};

int main () {

   mystruct<"asdf">::go();

}

It obviously won't let me do it just like that, and I thought I'd get lucky by using user-defined literals to transform the "asdf" string during compile-time, but GCC 4.3 doesn't support user-defined literals...

does anyone know a good way of changing HSB color to RGB without using floating point math?

Have you tried doing the math with 0-255 values as opposed to 0-1 values? Failing that, you could always use a Rational type to do all the math then at the end convert that to an int in 0-255 (or whatever your scale is) without using any floating point math.
