Can anybody help me with this assembly? I'm trying to write a function like memset but instead of copying 1 byte at a time it copies 4. The function appears to have no effect on the array though.

I've tried different conditional jumps on line 13 and it still doesn't do anything.

Nevermind I realized the problem was that I was subtracting from rdi instead of adding to it. Well its fixed thanks for your help!

Also disregard that comment about causing an infinite loop. I didn't need to decrease edx so that won't be a problem (I figured if for some reason they entered 0 it'd decrease to -1 and it'd never be 0).

What are you, 12? I suppose you also think that GCs and JITs are decidedly gnarly.

C+= (pronounced either C-plus-Equality, or See Equality) is a feminist programming language, created to smash the toxic Patriarchy that is inherent in and that permeates all current computer programming languages.

Pretty funny parody of feminists vs programmers. They've had to move the repo from GitHub to BitBucket after GitHub removed the project for not being PC. I wouldn't have heard of it otherwise, though.

I understand the idea behind algorithmic trading. I am trying to understand how 'bot vs bot' trading algorithms manage to isolate agents from aggregate market data to capitalise on their predictions? AM I right in supposing they would only work where the targeted bot can manipulate the market in a statistically visible way correlating with specific real world or market events?

Not 100% - if you can predict that in situation X, they will make trade Y, you can build your own algorithm with the knowledge that X->Y

First, if you know how they act, you know how the market will react.

A very simplified example could be that if you know they're going to bid for google stock, you buy some yourself and sell it when the price increases because of the bid for it. Alternatively, if you can predict that they will sell off a lot of stock at a loss because they predict a price drop, you can short that stock even if you disagree with the price drop would otherwise happen because their sale will draw the market down.

Second: If you know how the market is BEFORE THEY DO, you can know what they will do before they're even aware.

Simple example of making money here: If google trades at X and you know they will make a bid at X+Y+Z, you can buy at X+Y, sell at X+Y+Z and make Z profit. Doesn't matter how tiny Y and Z are, so long as they are non-zero.

Don't forget they have their machines at the exchange.
And if their code causes them to lose a lot of money the exchange will revert the trades. They give exactly zero shits if you lose money.

The Python interpreter isn't whatever Microsoft calls their shitty shell. You can't run programs inside it with that syntax. What you want to do is open a shell ("DOS prompt") where the 2to3 script is (assuming it isn't in your PATH) and then try to run it like you tried to.

Question: There is a potential memory leak in the below code. Where is it? How would you fix it?

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 13/12/03(Tue)03:04 No. 4232

In SomeClass::setPoint(), SomeClass::p is reassigned without attempting to free its memory. Memory is leaked if the user calls that function more than once per instance.

Alright, lowly peon of a tech student here. I know basic computer repair, and I am good at html. I really want to get more mainstream into application programming and development. I need to know, should I go with these programs?


I think this would be a good list to build fundamental knowledge on, and learn. Unless, there is something you think I should learn other than these, or instead of these. Ideas, /pr/?

Haskell, because functional programming is popping up everywhere. Even functional style in other languages, because it obviously makes sense.

Of the languages you'be got there, I think Java would be the best one to learn with.

Pascal represents linguistic concepts that never really gained traction, so it wouldn't really be good to learn because it wouldn't help you learn most other modern langauges. Also, it's rarely used in modern systems.

C is a wonderful language (my personal favorite), and it is more or less the basis of many other modern languages. That said, it's a lot more complex than most modern languages, which makes it (probably) a poor choice for learning. Something that would be trivially easy in other languages can be quite challenging in C.

Some people really like C++, but I hate it. C++ was designed to be C except with support for the Object Oriented programming paradigm. Unfortunately, the way they implemented this ended up making the language (in my mind) more or less a game of having to book keep context. Either way, this shares the same problem with C, namely that it is likely too complicated to be a good language for beginners.

I like Java to learn with because it is both pretty easy and also people actually use it today. Java is easier than C because it deals with the program's memory on the user's behalf, so you don't have to worry about allocating and deallocating memory throughout the program.

Javascript is one of the biggest clusterfucks of a language there is, and only shares a name with Java. It is a bad language to learn with because it is poorly structured and because there are few languages that are similar to it. That said, if you are dead set on programming for the web then it's worth considering that Javascript is one of the most popular languages there.

If I were you, I would start learning with Python. This is because Python is syntactically simple, yet extraordinarily powerful. Someone above said that Python wasn't useful in production, but that simply isn't true (fun fact, anytime someone says a language is completely useless they're wrong; languages are tools, and every tool is the best for some job). As an example, Reddit runs entirely on Python.

Quite a while ago the most popular hosting company, Freedom Hosting (I think), was taken down. With it many onions fell and apparently haven't recovered yet.

True, but since then even sites that weren't hosted with Freedom Hosting have fallen...

I wonder what happened to the webmasters of the old sites... where have they all gone? because they sure as shit aren't here.

Yes, we know how to make time-bomb computer viruses. Its trivial, you just get the current date of the computer using built-in functions. They have them in windows.h if you're using c++, which I assume you are if you're making viruses.

Would you like me to post some example source code for a time-triggered program? (Note, this is not an actual virus, its just time-triggered code. Nothing malicious, so not against the rules)
