Re: CodingHow the heck can anyone get bored of C++? Like those Java coders, never could understand them. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #27 20121021 00:57:22

Re: CodingFrankly, C++ is too...procedural. I tried Perl, but prefer Ruby instead. And I agree with Stefy, C++ is as if you are instantaneously doing something you have to, rather then enjoying programming. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: Coding
In your educational system or at work you will soon enough run into a functional rather than procedural language. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #30 20121022 07:59:56
Re: CodingI still prefer other languages over C++. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CodingI prefer functional over procedural. But once you learned procedural first, forever will you think that way. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: CodingHave you two ever tried something of the sorts of APL and J?

Re: CodingSo, you have tried Lisp or Prolog?

Re: CodingMathematica uses prolog. Maxima uses lisp. I have used lisp for a while. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: CodingI did not like Lisp. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CodingUm, okay. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CodingDon't remember all that much about the language but I do remember writing a package to do multiprecision arithmetic in it. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: CodingI am very impressed by the shortness of coded that gets written in J. I.e. it takes only 4 characters to sum a matrix +/+/...

Re: CodingBut look at the awesome power of lisp Code:(mapcar #'+ '(1 2 3 4 5) '(10 20 30 40 50) yields (11 22 33 44 55) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
