The patented algorithm filled by the russian at USA is for abs without branching.
Compute the integer absolute value (abs) without branching

int v; // we want to find the absolute value of v
unsigned int r; // the result goes here
int const mask = v >> sizeof(int) * CHAR_BIT - 1;

r = (v + mask) ^ mask;

Patented variation:

r = (v ^ mask) - mask;

On March 14, 2004, Keith H. Duggar sent me the patented variation above; it is superior to the one I initially came up with, because a multiply is not used. Unfortunately, this method has been patented in the USA on June 6, 2000 by Vladimir Yu Volkonsky and assigned to Sun Microsystems. On August 13, 2006, Yuriy Kaminskiy told me that the patent is likely invalid because the method was published well before the patent was even filed, such as in How to Optimize for the Pentium Processor by Agner Fog, dated November, 9, 1996. Yuriy also mentioned that this document was translated to Russian in 1997, which Vladimir could have read. Moreover, the Internet Archive also has an old link to it.

Java dog retard back again

I got most of my program to start working (Thank you /dpt/) but I'm having troubles on something

Array of a class called Kennels, each Kennel has a reference to a class called Dog that describes a dog by int height and int weight, Kennels is stored in a class called Info which also references a new Dog class for each new Kennel added

I have something like

for(int i = 0; i < kennels.length; i++){
if(infoDog.equals(kennels[i].getDog()){
System.out.println("Duplicate dog");
}
}


to catch if the user puts in a duplicate Dog

It doesn't catch it though

if I print infoDog and kennels[i].getDog(), it prints the same thing
if I change kennels[i].getDog() to kennels[i].dog it still doesn't work

Any noticeable reason why? If they both print the same values, and the debugger shows them both having the same values, while being two different references, then why isn't it equal?
>>
>>52926756
as it should be
>>
>>52927648
You said infoDog also stores information on the kennel? It may be including that in the equals function whereas you're specifying just the dog from the kennel.

>>
>>52927648
you need to override .equals() in Dog to check the things you want to check against for equality. right now it's probably checking against hash codes and shit.
>>
>>52927692

infoDog is just a new Dog that gets created every time the user wants to add a Dog, it passes height and weight to the Dog reference in each Kennel

I should have mentioned that infoDog is just a Dog too, like
Dog infoDog = new Dog(height, weight)
, which then gets passed to a kennel as long as there is no other dogs with the same description in any other kennel like
kennels[numDog] = new Kennel(infoDog) 


>>52927728

Isn't equals just a way of checking if two strings output the same thing? Dog or Kennel.getDog() is basically just a string of height + weight

So I basically need to define what I'm actually checking to be equal?
>>
I've just started programming, and am using java as my first language. I'm trying to make an example program for learning purposes that will take a day of the week, and check if it's a weekday or weekend; simple stuff.

>>
>>52927785

>Isn't equals just a way of checking if two strings output the same thing?
equals() is a method in every Object to check if it is equal to another Object. i think the default behavior checks to see if they both refer to the same object in memory. or you can override it to use different criteria to check for equality, such as the same fields or whatever.

>So I basically need to define what I'm actually checking to be equal?
yes
>>
>>52927848
Not 100% on what you want to do but you'd only need one if, else.

if (saturday || sunday) {
weekend;
} else {
weekday;
}
>>
>>52927941

>i think the default behavior checks to see if they both refer to the same object in memory

ah fuck this makes so much sense

my previous issue was that i couldn't figure out why the fuck completely different inputs were triggering the if statement, anon informed me that i was actually just dealing with the same reference in memory and anytime a user edited Dog, it was also editing every other Dog in the array (since they're the same object in memory)

thank you

String dayToCheck = System.in.readLine();

Basically this gives you an array (read up on them if you are unfamiliar) like this:
0: "monday"
1: "tuesday"
2: "wednesday"
3: "thursday"
4: "friday"
5: "saturday"
6: "sunday"

Then this:
weekdays.indexOf(dayToCheck)
is a reverse lookup, so you go from for example "thursday" to 4.

>>52928042

As a fellow beginner java student here's what I would have gotten

import java.util.Scanner; // Scanners are useful 

public class Assignment_1_Anon{
public static void main (String args[]) {
Scanner userScan = new Scanner(System.in) // Declares a new scanner for your users to use
System.out.println("What day is it today?: ");
String day = userScan.nextLine();
if(day = "Saturday" || day = "Sunday"){ // the operator " || " is an OR operator. If day is saturday OR day is sunday, then do this, etc
System.out.println(day + " is a weekend");
} else {
System.out.println(day + " is a weekday.");
}
}
}


"If else" is exactly that, if the conditions in the if statement were not meant, it will do whatever is inside of 'else' instead. I don't know if there's a better way to get inputs than scanners though. I'm sure there are millions of better ways to do this though.

Has anyone ever created a lossy text compression? Because I just thought of it
1) Strip page of punctuation and all non alphabetic characters
2) Get count of all characters and order them by occurrence
3) Assign most common characters prime numbers starting with 2, 3, 5... going all the way up to 101
4) Go through each word and multiply the prime numbers as much as you can without hitting the int limit.
5) Null for new word and double null for new sentence

So at the end of it, you can't tell the order of the letters. But you can use prime factorization to find out the letters. But if you want, you can get a lookup table with every single correctly spelled word being used. And then compare the word to those.

For example, it could be something like
Feeling
f=53
e=2
e=2
l=31
i=11
n=13
g=59

53*2*2*31 = 6572
11*13*59 =8437

Then it can be stored into 2 16 bit integers, the equivalent of 4 chars, saving 3 bytes. Then you can decode it using prime factorization and the map you used to encode it

6572 = 2*2*31*53
8437= 11*13*59

Decoded: eelfing

And if you want to fix everything, you can just get a lookup table of all words You can just look to see which word has the letters eelf in the first four letters, and ing for the next three.

Prime factorization of a maximum of 65535? With knowledge beforehand that it'll only be 26 specific primes? All you have to do is loop through 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,61,67,73,83, and 101

Hello Java, my old friend...

.equals() will default to ==, so it will just check to see if the objects are identical i.e. the same instance in memory.

Strings have .equals overridden to compare the actual string outputs, with == actually checking for identical references.

You could literally look up the java implementation of String.equals() and use that for your Dog class.

Not really
6572 will always be before 8437. So the letters calculated for 6572 is before 8437. Meaning you have two sections

The reason I mentioned the Java implementation of .equals() is because of a nice shortcut it uses.
It first checks for
if (this == passedObject) 
which compares the object you are calling the method on with the object passed as a param.
That way, if the references do match, you don't even need to check the contents, since they must be identical anyway.

Also it's a good idea to put a null check in your method, may save you a lot of pain later on.
>>
>>52928625

The snippet I posted isn't the full thing, it only checks if there's a Dog in the Kennel if Dog isn't null in the first place, so there shouldn't be any null values to check in the first place afaik

Well I'm using 16 bits for the numbers. So just 2 bytes for a space and 4 bytes for new sentence. I might just make space and new sentence primes by themselves to save space.
What I might do is use substrings as primes as themselves. For example if "fee" is used often in a list of words, i won't use 53*2*2, instead I'll push characters like z up and make fee something like 73

Practically never.

I do it when it improves readability, which is usually when it's something simple like returning either true or false. Sometimes I just return a ternary statement (return 1 == 1 ? true : false;) but lots of people don't like that for readability's sake.

i can't give you a project that you'll enjoy for sure but a good way to find a project is to see what you wish you had when working on code to help you simplify your life
think simple build systems or code generation tools, maybe just a git plugin to help you do some simple task, or whatever will help you out

for languages, try learning something you haven't used anything like before so that you can expand your knowledge of programming to not only different languages but also different types of programming. maybe learn something lower level (C, Rust, C++, D).

I'm working on the number to text converter at 89 here >>52927429
and I had a small question. Which of these two forms of sorting teen and uniquely named numbers is considered more correct?

if num < 20:
if num < 13:
# unique numbers from 1 - 12
else:
# numbers ending in teen
else:
# other numbers

# OR

if num < 13:
# unique numbers from 1 - 12

elif num < 20:
# numbers ending in teen

else:
# other numbers

The first seems to avoid an unnecessary check if num > 20, but the second seems more readable and might reduce overall complexity in larger checks.
>>
>>52929355

I do 90% of my programming in C, C++, and Ruby, and just sort of dabble in everything else. I can do Java, C#, Python, whatever, but I'll be rusty at any of them, because I don't use them for much.

>>52929352

Java and Bash. Take either Linux Deploy, Lil' Debi, or any other Android chroot application, and make them stop being broken as fuck on Lollipop and above. Termux is suffering.
>>
>>52929580
The second is more readable, and actually better, however you need to change one thing. Your checks should go in the order of num > 20, num > 13, else. The reason is that you want to optimize for the statistically most likely option, and num > 20 covers 80% of your numbers. So for 80% of your calls to this function you'll only need the first if check.

In any case, optimizing for performance at this level is really not that important. Write for readability ONLY. Run the program. If it's too slow for your liking then start looking at optimizations.

Dunno If this thread is best or sqt is better for this question but I figured you guys would know better.

I have a Java array of Point (basically an array of objects). I want to store this array in an SQL database, which I can do using a blob. My problem is getting this array back out. There seems to be no way of converting the blob back into an object array, only a byte array (which also cannot be converted into an object array).

I reckon I'm trying to do something that can't be done, it's just that this is the best method because I need to be able to retrieve the array specific to a username (which a database seems best for as files would get messy).

>C++ is just C with classes!
The fact that proper C++ is not written at all like C is why I recommend C first. You learn what programming is like without the abstractions, and then you learn what abstractions are available, and what they're doing under the hood. As opposed to learning C++ first, and learning how to program it like C first because you need to learn how raw pointers are before you learn what a smart pointer is and why the fuck it works. If your first experience with C++ is with all of the C parts, you might think that's how it's supposed to be programmed. But if you learn C first and then C++ second as a completely different language, you already know the C parts and can approach C++ completely differently.

Oh hey, this is a linear programming problem... too bad I forgot everything I knew about linear programming. But it's not that difficult to tackle algebraically. If you buy 4 chickens and 1 pig, you get an average of $1 per animal. Repeatedly buy that, you get 80 chickens, 20 pigs.

If you're not retarded you'll pick up how things work from reading enough samples. Just figure out something you want to do, like write to the console, take input, fibonacci numbers, or whatever, and go at it with what you know, and google the rest. You can read when you actually already have a vague grasp of things.

In Windows' Dev-C++ this code works

int *point, i;

but at Debian's gcc it fails

This is not valid C++ code, as far as I'm aware.

int mat[10] = {1,8,3,7,5,3,7,23,68,10};

I want to generally just dick around with graphics shit and hopefully write my own raycasting

what's the best approach to doing this? On the face of it I kind of just want to do everything onto a bitmap buffer and send that to opengl to draw, rather than doing it properly with hardware acceleration and shit. I don't really care about speed, I just want to learn something and have fun

Also would it be easier to do this in D or C?
anyone know good tutorial on getting either set up for drawing bitmaps with opengl?

I'd like to write an app for my company to give to clients for ticket submission.

Currently, they have to visit a website and submit there, or email a particular email address. For some clients, it would be more convenient to submit a ticket via mobile.
>>
>>52934665
That shouldn't be hard to do.
>>
>>52934708
I'm hoping it'll be trivial.

The way it's setup currently is to send a formatted email to the ticketing system.

I'd probably make the app to utilize the ticketing system's APIs, rather than the email injection.

Luckily, I'm doing all of this in C#/Xamarin, and I've worked with the APIs before in other C# applications.

I just need to figure out how the GUI stuff works.

I was about to post almost the exact same thing as>>52929672

Nested ifs implies something is now branching which is completely unrelated to the initial if statement, which in this case it not true at all.
And again about optimisations, imagine if you were calling this for all values between 1 and 1000, in 98 percent of cases you default to the final else, so really it should be the first thing checked.

But then you'll need different logic for numbers pass 99 anyway. That question is stupidly vague, as soon as someone tries to solve it you'll get someone commenting "hurr you dindu the millions".

I think I was just in a thought process of working out exceptional cases and catching them first. It might be true for something like num % 10 == 0 where it's a set that's not really useful for anything else, but where you can branch off just the normal cases first then it makes complete sense.

Also that was only the part for working out the tens. I processed them 3 digits at a time through another hundreds function that made use of tens and single digit functions, appended that to the string as well as thousands or millions etc, and then divided by 1000 until there was nothing left. Worked pretty well except for the formatting requiring a lot more if statements so the output looked pretty.
