New to LQ

Posted 03-01-2019 at 12:59 PM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

This may be my favorite feature on this website! When I first started with Linux all I wanted was a place to write about it that was publicly accessible and free. My intention isn't to get mass followers or anything like that, but instead, have a place to keep all of my thoughts and goals and activities related to Linux and my journey in learning.

I have never been this excited about learning anything in my life. I don't say that because I think I am unique in that fact, but as...

The beauty of Perl

Posted 07-27-2018 at 06:13 PM by anestis89

It's been some time from my first post. I have almost finished "Learning Perl",
2nd edition from Randal Schwartz and Tom Christiansen, and I have to say I was
amazed by this language. Now, this edition is rather old (1999) because I borrowed
it from my local library, today it's in the 7th edition, but the language didn't
change very much. It is still Perl 5.

One only need look at LinuxQuestions.org to notice the great amount of script (and code) questions and varieties of comments to realize that we all have varying opinions about bash programming.

Many questions are very complicated, as are the resulting answers and script recommendations. I've noticed that two fundamental points are invariably overlooked by the questioners, and many of the comments:

C++ had lambda functions!

Posted 01-31-2013 at 01:21 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

I'm doing a CS class which forces me to use C++. I was not very excited about this. However, I have recently be greatly encouraged by the discovery that C++ does, in fact, have lambda functions (or, more properly, anonymous functions) at least in the C++11 standard:

Basically, the big deal here is that I can construct new functions /inside/ of other functions, and even capture variables from the context. This,...

Too cool: Haskell Source Analysis

Posted 09-21-2012 at 08:46 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)
Updated 09-21-2012 at 08:54 PM by hydraMax

I tried out Haskell's SourceGraph program on the project I'm currently working on. It produces tons of cool dependency / analysis graphs. I saved a summary graph in SVG format at the following location:

https://frigidcode.com/ftprepo/edge/...aph-0.1.15.svg

Warning: It is only 374K in size, but it is over 22,000 pixels wide at the default size!

The project in its present form uses an event-based model with an oop-like component structure....
