  1. In Topic: Is it bad practice to your function variables the same?

    Posted 4 Aug 2015

    Well, calling it "vec" is a bit redundant since we readily see that it's a "vector" - we can see the type just in front of the name. ;) Still "v" is quite short, general name when you need a temporary vector or something. You might argue that "collection" is a redundant name too, since we already know that it's a collection - std::vector is a collection type after all. :P It might be called "numbers"... But, well, collection isn't that bad of a name I guess.
  2. In Topic: Is it bad practice to your function variables the same?

    I sense a possible disturbance in the Force... You do realize that the name of the parameter does not need to correspond in any way to the name of the variable you pass as a parameter, right? Parameters are usually a bit broadly named, while variables can have specific names that tell you more about what they are:

    #include <vector>
    #include <numeric>
    #include <iostream>
    double average(std::vector<int> collection) {
        int sum = std::accumulate(collection.begin(), collection.end(), 0);
        return static_cast<double>(sum) / collection.size();
    int main() {
        std::vector<int> prices = { 570, 808, 503, 892, 920, 428 };
        std::vector<int> ages   = { 57, 88, 53, 89, 90, 39 };
        std::vector<int> diameters = { 7, 8, 5, 8, 9, 4 };
        std::vector<int> numbers_from_file = { 2357, 388, 53, 9989, 9330, 429 };
        std::cout << average(prices) << "\n"
                << average(ages) << "\n"
                << average(diameters) << "\n"
                << average(numbers_from_file) << "\n";
        return 0;

    I name my variables and parameters so their names are useful - in the `average()` function I'm not averaging some specific set of chickens or prices, it calculates the average of whatever collection of integers I give it, thus the name is quite general. However, my variables are representing sets of specific things, and they are named accordingly.
  3. In Topic: Help with basic array program

    Posted 4 Aug 2015

    Edited my post accordingly. Jim is obviously right, I could swear on my head that it was an int array and int variables... and I would loose it, since the post wasn't edited. I'm sorry, that's completely my mistake. I should have compiled the code - as Jim says, compiler with a good set of flags (like -Wall -Wextra and maybe -std=c99 or std=c11 for GCC) will tell you that there's something wrong. I assumed that "Enter a name" was a leftover and you actually wanted "Enter number" there, but if you actually want an array of c-strings, and not a 2D array of ints, then that was a completely false assumption.

    Again, sorry about that. I usually try to avoid blunders like that, but things slip under the radar...
  4. In Topic: Help in fseek and offset.

    Posted 4 Aug 2015

    My point was - what exactly happens? Yes, if the file fails to be opened you do display a message... And then continue as if the file was opened correctly.
    You do indeed check whether the given word is found in a line and display a message if it is... And then you continue without using that information in any way.

    Is that what you want?
  5. In Topic: Help in fseek and offset.

    Posted 3 Aug 2015

    gets(str); Tssk. Never use gets(). Ever. ;)

    Another thing that is readily apparent - can you tell us what happens when you can't open the text.txt file?

    Also, can you explain in your own words what exactly happens here, line by line:
    /*finding match*/
                printf("A match found.\n");
                printf("Match not found");

    No, it's not. I've seen you naked, doing the dance for me. The fact that your mom caught us at that moment changes nothing!
    Traitor! :'(

    Come on, with your skills, you should be able to find a job in IT pretty soon.
    BTW, I completed Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman, and it was awesome ^_^

    Ya know, the book which you recommended is not exactly a novel, but it's good nonetheless. I am enjoying reading it :D

    Seeing how your last recommendation was Song of Fire and Ice, I'll definitely try his works :D Any work in particular?
