It is. It also supports multi core, and in the main release too.

fair enough, though it's pretty shitty. Generics is pretty broken in Java, as I'm sure you know. That stuff pretty much compiles to:

ayy("lmao");
ayy(new Integer(1337));


which is probably why Java doesn't care so much if you don't specify the generics types explicitly.

Scientific computing applications. When optimizing non-linear systems, it often happens that the cost reaches a peak (either even at the very beginning, or it could be later during training if conditioning isn't very good). 2^64 is relatively safe (but not always), 2^62 isn't safe for shit.

It really is. For the realm of the vast majority of everyday programming, you don't need to be smart. You just work with tools others have created, patterns others have proven, etc

Unless you're one of the few high level fags creating algorithms, doing actual CS, implementing research papers on the daily etc your work is trivial and you can easily pick up what you need to know without a degree.

It doesn't need a _degree_. It _does_ need a certain level of clarity of thinking and depth of understanding, which is orthogonal to having a degree.

Dumb people doing programming results in a huge mess of a codebase, speed of development slowing to a crawl, and then - either shifting deadlines, (semi-)unusable software, or an altogether failure of a project.

LGPL can't be used on closed platforms, fampai. I wrote *GPL to be inclusive of LGPL too. Previously using LGPL v2.1 on closed platforms was kind of a grey area (even though the Qt devs sort of explicitly stated you shouldn't, in typical legal-nonspeak)

No he didn't, the license is cancer and now he actively goes out of his way to fuck projects up (like what he did with gcc and its AST -- as someone who's used it since the very beginning its sad to see its going to be surpassed by clang but thats solely because of his poisonous ideology)

The GPL trades everything for ideals. Other licenses have sane practical considerations. Modern day GPL software would be way better if it wasn't under the GPL.

Even Linux would have been better off; just look at how well clang is doing.

Mostly false.

You can't use GPL/LGPL v3 on iOS (without jailbreaking) because of Apple's control-freak walled-garden bullshit. Most Android-based platforms aren't as restrictive, and the (L)GPL certainly doesn't have a general prohibition on "embedded" use.

As for Qt: you're free to buy a commercial licence if you want to use it in proprietary products (e.g. anything on Apple's store).

That's the difference between GPL and LGPL. GPL requires that the entire work be GPL. LGPL only requires a) that the library remain LGPL and b) that the user has the ability to actually use a modified library with the program (which basically means that binary-only programs can't link LGPL libraries statically, and you can't use them on "tamper-proof" platforms like iOS).

Plenty of commercial software uses LGPL libraries (e.g. anything which runs on Linux, as glibc is LGPL).

Its years younger as a project and growing at a far faster rate.

The concern of Stallman and his fellow FSF fags is politics and philosophy.

The concern of permissive fags is actually creating useful software. The kind of utility that allows people to push software without having a crack team of lawyers to consult with first, that allows people to create billion dollar business and employ thousands, that allows technology to jump forward in leaps and bounds

But stay huddled in your free software group think and keep donating to the FSF and the SFLC -- surely hunting down the odd chinkphone manufacturer to force them to post up their slightly modified linux kernel online in the name of the GPL is what the software world needs more of

That wouldn't be as great, you'd have to account for pieces moving off the half boards, your check mask would need to be across 2 variables, rotations would twice as many instructions, and a bunch of other crap.

As compact as you can go I think would be 8 64-bit ints, 1 for each piece(pawn, knight, ...) and 2 masks for the white/black pieces.

No, the board is part of the state(of the chess game), the AI works with successors to that state(which states it can be in after each move). The input as you call it would be (part of) the initial state.

No. F# is actually good, but limited by the MSVM. Scala is garbage, but at least it's not java.

I'll respond to you again when you show that you have a rudimentary grasp of the subject.

>chess AIs only work with a chain of possible outputs are also state
No. Given any input only one possible output. No need to store long chains of outputs, you only need to consider the next four five steps and then choose based on a heuristic. Otherwise you end up with the halting problem.
>>
>>52652566
That's not type inference, that's template filling.

>>52652584
a proper chess AI should look through many different permutations

>inferring which type to use is not type inference
>>
>>52652629
It does not infer which type is used.
>>
>>52652584
At no point did I imply you'd have to search the entire game tree.

Also that has nothing to do with the halting problem, what are you even going on about?

> As of JDK 7, you can replace the type arguments with the diamond notation, (<>), to take advantage of automatic type inference.

>The compiler infers the type String for the formal type parameter, T, of the constructor of this generic class (because the actual parameter of this constructor is a String object).

it infers which type is created
>>
>>52653013
No it does not. You always have to specify the entire type. For example, you can't do HashMap<> dicks = new HashMap<>();.
Moreover, even if you could, that still wouldn't be type inference. For type inference, you'd need to infer the HashMap part as well, like in C#, with var dicks = new HashMap<params>();
>>
>>52653086
it's a highly restricted form of type inference that solves the "problem" of
HashMap<Integer, String> killYourself = new HashMap<Integer, String>();

while having none of the drawbacks of var

it infers the Integer, String in the constructor
>>
>>52653133
Why are you still responding to him?
>>
>>52653133
Var has no drawbacks. This isn't type inference any more than multiple interfaces are multiple inheritance.
>>
>>52651139
Try interfacing with libs made in any other fucking language.

Char is (in a sane language) unsigned so you can make full use of ASCII or whatever encoding you like for byte buffers.

The lack of such a F U N D A M E N T A L feature in Java to makes things "simpler" means you are forced to fucking bitshift and cast on a per byte basis, exactly the kind of thing you want to avoid in a high level language.
This isn't just a case of "muh memory" and using smaller types to save space, the JNI doesn't give you a fucking choice in the matter, block data is moved around in byte buffers.
>>
>>52653309
char in C is signed.
>>
>>52653342
By default yes, but you can use unsigned too.

I should have said "can be unsigned" not "is unsigned".
