>"portable assembler" meme has never used C
The "portable assembler" meme was created by people who used C for serious things like operating systems, GUIs, and programming languages.
>>
>>52942828
The idea is that you can compile the C code for different architectures. Good luck doing that with x86 assembler
>>
>>52942784
Yes. You learn basics of imperative programming with C. Then assembly language teaches you how it is underneath and you'll have a lot of "ooh" moments when comparing the standard practices and methods for both.
Knowing C will also help you understand what really is happening in the objective-oriented languages (ateast mainstream ones). I think half of their features don't really make sense until you consider the relation of OOP and procedural practices in history of software.
So just study C extensively for now.

Just an empty place to put the code, and a display so i can see what happens every time i run it.

Im fully aware that im a fucking chump , this should be so simple but im drawing a blank at finding a simple fucking compiler.

define expression « lights & sprinklers » for French Moi.

What you want is a web server - server in a different meaning than « this PC is my dad's server » - that is : a program that presents a webpage to clients, the webpage being constituted of html. Using a specially crafted web server, you can create web services with special functionnality, such as responding to commands formulated à la web (example : translate.google.com), and including dynamic data in web pages (example : ipconfig.me).
So yeah, what you want is a web service for controlling lights and sprinkles. Do you know how the computer can access them?

Writing some platform specific parts in C or C++ is way easier than say porting the entire jvm to a new platform.
>Your definition of portable is extremely uncharacteristic of what experienced programmers consider portable.
I'm using the practical definition that programmers actually care about.

If you want a program to run on:
embedded devise with cpus varying from 16-32 bit, with one's or two's complement integers, with or without floating point (and possibly non-iee754), with memory capacity ranges from a few KB up to gigabytes, speeds from megahertz to gigahertz, etc.
If that is your span of devices, C is your only realistic choice if you want anything to run at all.

That makes it the most portable language.

They get their code accepted more often because most of their pull requests consist of trivial non-code stuff like adding code of conducts and changing all the pronouns in comments to gender neutral ones.

It returns his ID, now if I wanted to get a list of his films I'd have to somehow magically know how to construct a URL that employs an ID as it's parameter.

Who the fuck writes a JSONP API and then provides literally 0 documentation. Worthless sack of shit.

Funnily enough, I looked into Rust ... for about 5 minutes. Dropped it as soon as I discovered that they also punted on doing anything meaningful about integer overflow (because implementing exceptions was too much effort and messed up their nice, clean, oversimplified language).

Providing "safe" arithmetic operations as alternatives which are an unmitigated nuisance to use (and which no-one will actually use) while the infix operators are unsafe isn't a solution. Nor are "optional" checks which are only enabled in "debug" builds.

If the overhead of checking individual operations is too much, then do static analysis so that you can omit the checks when they can't occur. But that would require doing actual work.

Incorrect. Any non-zero value is considered true, but operators which return a boolean can only return 0 or 1. E.g. §3.3.8:
Each of the operators < (less than), > (greater than), <= (less
than or equal to), and >= (greater than or equal to) shall yield 1 if
the specified relation is true and 0 if it is false./38/ The result
has type int.

It is. I suspect that he chose C89 specifically because the drafts are harder to find (and none of them are hosted by an ISO member body, unlike C99).

For C99, see e.g. §6.5.9
       [#3]  The  == (equal to) and != (not equal to) operators are
analogous to the relational operators except for their lower
precedence.79) Each of the operators yields 1 if the
specified relation is true and 0 if it is false. The result
has type int. For any pair of operands, exactly one of the
relations is true.

> C is portable as long as you follow the standard and don't invoke implementation defined or undefined behaviour.
You can't avoid some amount of implementation-defined behaviour for any practical program.

E.g. whether you can allocate 1K of memory is implementation defined (there are conforming implementations for architectures with less than that). Whether you can read or write files is implementation-dependent (there are conforming implementations for platforms which don't have a filesystem).

If you need more than 1K of memory, your program isn't going to run on something with less than that. If you need files, your program won't run on a system which doesn't have them. And changing language won't help.

People writing actual software tend to at least settle for being portable to anything which satisfies certain constraints which are either inevitable given the problem (e.g. you aren't going to do 4096-bit RSA on a microcontroller with 256 bytes of RAM because you can't even store the key).

Most of them will settle for a lot less. E.g. any architecture whose "int" isn't at least 32 bits is going to be quite starved for software nowadays.

You can't do this with int, check if sum exceeds INT_MAX and if i does then do (a/2) + (b/2) if not do normal (a+b)/2

guidelines for writing portable C that covers 99.99% of the implementations you'll run on:

char = 8 bit
short = 16 bit
int = 32 bit
long = 32/64 bit
long long = 64 bit
2's complement representation
done

following the same reasoning: 32 bits is enough for int, being the same as what most other compilers have for int

if int is 64 bits, what standard type would you use for 8, 16 and 32 bits? there's only char and short left and you need to cover 3 sizes

thank god; at least they used their brains instead of cargo culting on "machine word size"
"hey guys, it's really handy to access data in 8, 16, 32 bit quantities even though the native register is 64-bit wide; should we be reasonable and not take away the option for accessing them or say fuck it and don't let them touch 16-bit or 32-bit stuff in the name of purity?"

JS question:

How would I arrange an array like this in alphabetical order - based on the strings stored in index 1 of each subarray:
var newInv = [
[2, "Hair Pin"],
[3, "Half-Eaten Apple"],
[67, "Bowling Ball"],
[7, "Toothpaste"]
];
// changed to be alphabetically ordered
var newInv = [
[67, "Bowling Ball"],
[2, "Hair Pin"],
[3, "Half-Eaten Apple"],
[7, "Toothpaste"]
];

intN_t has additional restrictions over the standard types

no, i mean registers in the cpu

if i've got 8 ints:
a b c d
and
0 1 2 3

and i want
a & 0
b & 1
c & 2
d & 3

i can just do

(a | b | c | d) & (0 | 1 | 2 | 3)
(by | I don't mean or, I mean the bytes side by side)

>>52945987
exactly, char is your 8bit int.

why do you need 8bit int if you have one?

back to css, pajeet, this is over your head; that's why webcuck don't have a say in cpu design; you just lack knowledge and reason

I thought you wanted those restrictions.
Standard integer types aren't guaranteed to be of any particular size.

enlighten us
>>
>>52946056
how fucking stupid are you? char IS the 8 bit int were talking about
>>
>>52946055
And that would mean using 64 bit ints if you want the & '4-wide' in a single instruction.
>>
>>52946055
I'm fucking impressed by your skills at optimizing code.
>>
>>52946126
besides the fixed size, it must also have no padding bits and a 2's complement representation regardless of the native representation of the machine
>>
>>52946134
its always 8bit min, always.
>>
>>52946138
... the individual parts would be 16 bits
>>
>>52946116
Exact bit width?
Otherwise you could just use 64 bit ints for everything by masking out bits you don't want.
>>
>>52946110

Yeah. Repeated half my life twice. The first instance was supposed to be that I was close to 10 years here.

>>52946165
2'S COMPLEMENT REPRESENTATION YOU DENSE MOTHERFUCKER
>>
>>52946144
this is pretty standard
>>
>>52946163
... packed in a 64 bit int, otherwise you wouldn't get the single AND.
>>
>>52945872
Bytes aren't guaranteed to be 8 bits.
>>
>>52946178
What does that have to do with anything?
>>
>>52946168
"I'll have spent half my life here"
"So you've been here since 2010?"
This implies that half your life is 6 years, making you 12.
>>
>>52946179
>>52946179
It depends of what you're doing. But having int 64bits doesn't prevent that.
>>
>>52946162
it's at least 8 bits, m8
>>
>>52946207
yeah, who cares about representation, amirite? certainly not css cucks!
>>
>>52946182
>>52946210

yes, obviously you also use a 64 bit int
you want 16 bit ints for type and value safety
>>
>>52946178
>>52946160
So, basically, it guarantees exact type width.
>>
>>52946212
because char is an array.
1 segment of that array is always 8bits long.
>>
>>52946193
Are you Jesus C. Christ?
>>
>>52946245
Nope, it's guaranteed to be at least 8 bits.
Bytes aren't guaranteed to be 8 bits, just at least 8 bits, for some reason.
>>
>>52946242
So, basically, you're too dumb to be part of this conversation.
>>
>>52946234
There's these magical operators &, |, ~, ^ which can synthesize any integer representation you want anywhere *in* the integer you want.
But you must be older than 5 to understand how they work.
>>
>>52946236
>you want 16 bit ints for type and value safety
What fucking safety?
You would only use 64 bit ints otherwise you wouldn't get any speed benefit.
>>
>>52946208

I'm 24. I've been here since late 2006, so almost 10 years. In a few more years, I will have spent half my life here.
>>
>>52946277
>I don't know what different value representation requirements for 2 integer types imply, but I'll just shitpost some stuff about these magical operators I've found out yesterday that can make shit up, never mind I can't actually access the value and still have it make sense, but meh, such is the life of webcucks
kill yourself already
/thread
>>
>>52946297

The type should represent the range of values
As an example, if you're representing your 16 bit ints as 64 bit ints before putting them together, you might end up with a bit set outside of the 16 bit range, or similar
