Hi rrr314159 ,
Long time no see.

In my observation, more kids these days take no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing their opinions as brainless social warriors.

@JimG: The fdiv makes it slow. It seems rcpss uses a much faster algorithm.

Capetonian. "Hay D, why don't you work harder"

Durbanite. "And then."

Capetonian. "And then?"

Durbanite. "Yes. And Then."

Capetonian. "Well, and then you will have more."

Durbanite. "And then."

Capetonian. "Stop it with this 'And then' already. You'll have more money, more things you can buy.  You may even be more happy."

Durbanite. "Don't I look happy?"

Capetonian. "Yes you look happy. I said more happy."

Durbanite. "OK C. my turn. How big was your grandfather's house?"

Capetonian. "Well granddad had a double story, nine bedrooms and I think it was on two acres."

Durbanite. "And your father?"

Capetonian. "Dad had a single story, three bedrooms and it was defiantly on a quarter acre. OK I see where this is going."

Durbanite. "Yes C. and you"

Capetonian. "Hell. I don't even have land. I live in a two bedroom flat of about 75 meters squared."

Durbanite. "And who works more?"

Capetonian. "Well granddad hardly worked. Dad did about 40 hours a week. Dam, I do almost 60." 

Durbanite. "You see C. the more you work the more you make and the more you make the more THEY take."

Jo'Burger. "Yeh  man that's why they call it a rat race."

Game Development / Have somebody implemented thick line algorithm?

I'm fighting a little with Murphy's algorithm... but without success  :icon13:.

Perhaps somebody  :icon14:? (whatever thick line algorithm)

Here in the US we've figured out the right way to run an educational system. It starts with faith. Faith in the inexhaustible, infinite potential of every human being, regardless of ethnicity, gender, preference, IQ, attitude, special challenges, or any other discriminatory characteristic. Our brilliant sociologists have proven that such artificial theoretical pie-in-the-sky concepts as 'innate ability' possess no real-world instantiation. So we've decided that - since we like mathematicians - every kid will be a mathematician! Not only that, a great mathematician!

Obstructionist reactionaries harp on the fact that - as it happens - none of our K-12 math teachers know math from a hole in the wall. That's not important. Historical dialectical analysis reveals that some kids learn math on their own. It's as if they're born with the knowledge. They need a book, or teacher, just to find out what the rest of us call the concepts they already understand perfectly. For example, John von Neumann, Newton, and similar pampered scions of the aristocrat and bourgeois exploitative classes. Given that 1) all children have identical abilities, and 2) some children learn math without teachers, we conclude that 3) all children can learn math without teachers. That's as plain as the nose on your face. Why, then, are there a few isolated examples of children (about 99.99%) who have not yet achieved this simple goal? As I said earlier: It starts with faith. Tragically, a few reactionary, prejudiced individuals (about 99.99% of the general population) lack that faith. The children are victimized into losing confidence and pride in themselves. Without that, you can't do math or any academic subject. You're good only for recreational drugs, trash media, and petty violence. So we must work harder to re-educate that handful of reactionary bigots.

Faith - the key to success! The blinder the better! I can't emphasize it enough. Faith in children => child's self-confidence => mastery of mathematics. Illusory 'ability' has nothing to do with it. With enough self-confidence, advanced math is about as hard as picking your nose. As proven by our brilliant sociologists. Note - I don't mean to imply that these Harvard professors are more brilliant than anyone else! Everyone's equally brilliant. That goes without saying.

So my advice to South Africans is: simply have faith! While you're waiting for the crop of 18.5 million great mathematicians to appear, you might give this puzzle some thought: what are you going to do with all those geniuses? Can the world really absorb all that mental horsepower? Don't forget the US will soon be producing about that many every three years! The job market for geniuses might get a bit tight. Another point to ponder: they're not going to feel like doing the basic work required to keep society going. Like farming, policing, sanitation, infrastructure maintenance - all that boring unimportant stuff the decadent bourgeoisie are so obsessed with. Here's a suggestion: you adults take care of those minor tasks, while every kid goes on to win his, or her, Nobel prize. Finally, to end on a practical note: you'd better alert Stockholm to put aside 29.6 trillion to pay for all those prizes.

Runs as a .eek, Right ???   :eusa_naughty:

Hi P1,
What's a .eek?

Ja, ja, natürlich, das ist Rekursion

Recursive jokes, a new programming paradigm... great, we are back on this forum's topic :icon_mrgreen:

Yeah, I wanted to add that it's recursion, but I wasn't sure if it's suitable since I stopped reading the explanation of recursive procedure at one of the first sentences, which was "In short, recursive procedure can call itself."

But in maths, I found recursive functions to be a real pain in the :exclaim: to handle:)

Is a recursion the opposite of a fractal?

However, I don't think you will find any of these algos included in msvcrt.dll.

Hi nidud,

Sorry if I am missing something but msvcrt.dll exports memcpy and a lot of traditional C functions :
