I'm trying to get my python workflow set up. I'm using IPython, and really like its quality-of-life improvements over the default python3 shell, but I do have one question.

Is it possible to remove the output of the %load command? Whenever I load a file, I need to press ENTER again, and then I can start typing commands.

Well, one issue is in this line:
for dn in str(Die.DieNumber):

Printing out what str(Die.DieNumber) is, I found out it's the string representation of the function. It's essentially calling Die.DieSides once per character in the string.

I then printed out the array of die, and got a *ton* of strings.
Make sure that you're using getter and setter methods in your classes correctly.

>> No.70402682

Well maybe describe what's wrong you massive faggot instead of wallowing in self-pity moaning "I don't understa-a-and!"

Here's an exercise: solve the problem in a pseudocode that will magically have instructions for anything you want. This should be trivial provided you understand what's being asked of you in the first place.
Then go about trying to break each instruction down. If you get stuck there, post some details here. If not, keep going. At some point you'll have detailed pseudocode directly translatable to a program, if you have that, that means you're just stuck on the syntax and that's easy.

to put it basically, I need to take a .txt document that looks something like this:
and create a new .txt document with the above text
AND a new piece of text at the end of each line. Basically I want:
3 and 6 being determined by the 3rd piece of text(c is 3rd letter, f is 6th)
I need to be able to do this for as many lines as necessary, I need to do so using an array to store the text, using a split to divide the values based on ";", create and use a function that can calculate the new value based on the third existing one, loop as many times as needed for each line, and export all the data to the new .txt. I understand the pseudocode(mostly), but I'm at a loss for things like How do I divide the text properly, should I have just one array for the three-four characters on each line or should i have another array for each line as well, how do assign each word to a set place in the array, do I reset the array for each line or continue adding onto it, among other issues. Basically really easy stuff that I somehow can't wrap my head around.

should note:

>> No.70402974

I think part of the issue is just looking up ruby standard practice and what's in the library, but you do have some issues with actually understanding the pseudocode.
To get these out of the way:
>how do I divide the text properly
this entirely depends on the ruby standard library (I have never used ruby so I don't know). Look up on stackoverflow or something.
>should I have just one array or also store every line in another array
That depends on how you take input and provide output. Are you able to stream the files in and out? If so, you might be able to line by line. Your algorithm would then be:
string line = read_line_from_file();
string newline = do_processing_to_generate_the_line_with_the_extra_number_added(line);

Where read_line_from_file() and append_line_to_file(string) would be ruby library functions.
If you can't do this, then the other approach is to load the entire file into an array, then loop over the array calling do_processing_to_generate_the_line_with_the_extra_number_added() for every element, and then save the output. Here you could use a second array to store all the new lines, or you could try to modify the array of lines in place. Either way, again, this depends on what ruby offers you; read the official docs, search stackoverflow, etc.

Now, with code architectured like that, all you need to think about is your do_processing_to_generate_the_line_with_the_extra_number_added() function which takes a string and returns a string. The good thing here is that if you make this a pure function (with no side-effects), you won't have to worry about things like "do I reset the array for each line or not".

Try to go from here and see if you get stuck again.

Something something there are two kinds of people, those who intuitively understand programming and algorithms and are happy with it and those who struggle writing a fizzbuzz and seriously can't code.

I remember reading about a detailed study of CS students where freshment with zero programming experienced were asked to answer some questions relating to fundamental programming concepts, like variable assignment, and then were asked the same questions again after a term or two. Those who intuitively picked consistent answers first time around later gave correct answers the second time, those who had no idea what they were doing the first time around and selected at random still had no idea after taking the course on programming.

>> No.70403089

Here I'll assume "gets" reads a line (and keeps track of where it is in the file) and "puts" appends a line (since like I said I don't know a lick of ruby).

First of all, you're skipping the first line: while loops first evaluate their condition, so you do "input_line = my_input_file.gets" twice in a row.

Secondly, is that puts only for debugging? Because if that's an attempt to write the actual output, you should know that you're outputting it before actually doing anything to the line. It should probably come afterwards.

But otherwise you're on the right track. Inside your while loop you now need to split the input_line, take the last element of the array, find the corresponding number, append it to the array, and then join up the array back into a string before outputting that new string. You should be able to google for each of these steps to get ideas on how to proceed.

you're still missing the point about how i don't know what im doing; your post doesn't help me much. ive already pointed out how i don't know how to make the results of the roll readable, so telling me that repr isnt necessary doesn't help me, as ive already gathered that from pointing out how the results are printed in the 0x0 value thing instead of a readable format. (which again, i thought repr did but i still don't know and have tried for way too long to figure this out) ive tried multiple ways of doing this and with the ocean of information out there, finding the right island is actually very hard to do.

how would you write this out then? ive already made shitty iterations of this project but im trying to do things in a more concise and clean manner instead of spaghetts. is there any source of information that cleanly explains what im trying to do without using retarded examples that actually confuse the reader instead of helping?

You have kind of a fundamental lack of understanding about how code works.
Not that I'm calling you stupid.

input_line = my_input_file.gets is a statement that takes the value of a file and puts it in a variable.

while is a statement that evaluates a statement and executes a block of code repeatedly as long as it evaluates to true
And "true" basically means "not 0, and not null". So as long as the characters being found in the file are not EOL, the loop will keep running.

It's just fundamental building blocks of a programming language.
I think Python or some very high level language has gotten you used to thinking about code as something that has to be typed exactly one way. Pragmatic programming like C is much more about the atomics.

- You can use the "user.home" system property to get the path to the user's home instead of doing those OS-dependent checks
- Use the Path class to join Path instead of using String concatenation

- You should use the try-with-resource syntax to open your resources, it also takes care of closing them if an exception arises

This is wrong. Look at the difference between a set and a list, especially in a language like python. If you want to see if something is present in one of them, the syntax is literally exactly the same item in data, but doing this for a can be substantially slower depending on how big you are expecting it to be.

.global x64_linux_syscall

movq %rsi,%rdi
movq %rdx,%rsi
movq %rcx,%rdx
movq %r8,%r10
movq %r9,%r8
movq 8(%rsp),%r9

This code doesn't actually care whether the registers are set or not. Depending on the first arg, some registers won't be used at all. In other words, you can pass as many args as you want as long as its at least 1 and at most 7.

// all valid calls
func(1, 2);
func(1, 2, 3);
func(1, 2, 3, 4);
func(1, 2, 3, 4, 5);

func(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7);
// invalid
func(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8);

How do I declare this in C?

// doesn't type check?
// is calling the same function with different arguments multiple times undefined behavior?
// does compiler assume a prototype after the first time you call the function?
// or does it always generate code for the amount of args you passed?

It's taking advantage of short circuiting operators and the fact everything is an expression (stuff that returns values).

x ||= y
x || x = y
if x then x else x = y end

All equivalent. Be aware that this is incompatible with variables where either false or nil are valid values.

What do you mean? The assembly code can affect the calling function somehow? Pls be patient, I'm not an assembly expert, I just thought it'd be cool to make my own libc

As I understand it the kernel will look at the syscall number and call the implementation with the right arguments, the other ones won't be used at all. I used to set them all to 0 but that served no real purpose.

>Yes, you'd do that using varargs in C.

Yeah. That assembly code is from the musl source code. I just realized it uses varargs


hidden long __syscall_ret(unsigned long), __syscall(syscall_arg_t, ...),

Missed this the first time I read it. Looked up the abi docs and it seems the varargs calling convention uses the same registers as a regular function call. The x86 abi puts varargs on the stack, and indeed the x86 code seems to pull them off the stack:


.global __syscall
.hidden __syscall
.type __syscall,@function
lea 24(%esp),%eax
push %esi
push %edi
push %eax
mov 16(%esp),%eax
mov 20(%esp),%edx
mov 24(%esp),%ecx
mov 28(%esp),%edi
mov 32(%esp),%esi
call __vsyscall6
pop %edi
pop %edi
pop %esi

I have no idea what this vsyscall business is for. Can't the __syscall function simply put all the args in the registers then interrupt into the kernel?

>> No.70408233

>What do you mean? The assembly code can affect the calling function somehow?
Registers are magical special nonsense. If you arbitrarily pop 7 values off, then you get 7 arbitrary values. The function has no idea what they are or if they're the right ones.

Basically if one preceding call sets registers that the next doesn't, but reads from, you get whacky results. Registers are global values in asm, effectively, you don't ever want to read from them unless you know you've set something.

> The x86 abi puts varargs on the stack, and indeed the x86 code seems to pull them off the stack:
Yes but that's likely determined at compile time. I'm not going to deep-dive to answer this for you but the answer is probably:
The format string is parsed, and the number of args is parsed, and that is used to generate the correct number of push/pops onto the stack for variables.
It's definitely not fixed to "max possible amount"

>> No.70408261

The best thing to do is learn the standard library. Whatever you're doing with lists, hashes, strings, numbers, files... There's certainly a shitload of methods there to make it easy to do. Somehow this japanese language yields english like code.

Knowing the standard library is the difference between these lines of code:

[1, 2, 3][rand(3)]
[1, 2, 3].shuffle.first
[1, 2, 3].sample

Learn how to use blocks. Every ruby method is automatically capable of taking a block of code as argument. This is very neatly integrated into the language and is actually a more powerful abstraction compared to JS functions.

array.select &:even?

Don't explicitly return unless you have to (early in the function or something of the sort). In ruby, the returned value is the last expression evaluated.

def f(x)
return x ** 2

def g(x)
x ** 2

Integrate your classes into the language's conventions. Implement a to_s method to convert to string. Implement a inspect method to return a debugging representation of your object. Then you can just write puts(object) instead of defining a display method to puts(@x, @y, @z). This is just better code.

>> No.70408286

for(;;) instead of while(1)

>> No.70408311

In this case there's no format string. What determines how many registers get used is the syscall number. The compiler can't assume anything about that, right? I assumed it'd generate code to pass in the number of parameters the programmer wrote. If you pass 3 parameters, you get code that pushes 3 args on the stack or something like that.

Is there really a problem if all the asm does is copy the nonsense around and then let the kernel deal with it? If the programmer gives nonsense to the kernel, sure, the kernel will probably return invalid parameter error or do some insane thing. I can't think of a better way to do this tho

I'm making better, type safe functions for general usage but those functions still have to go through this one. At the end of the day they cast everything to long

That sentence is nonsense. The kernel has absolutely nothing to do with what is executed at the machine level. The kernel manages who does what when and who has access to what memory, but once it hits the asm level it can't do shit.

Basically what I suggest is this: Write a varargs function, and make a Hello World that calls it with n arguments. For each n, save the asm output from gcc, and then compare the difference and see what it does.

This is pretty embarrassing. I'm an EE at a smallish school. Our intro to programming class is in C++ without OOP, our discrete mathematics course is in lisp (EEs only have to take one course, CS have to take a few), and our data structures and OOP course is in Python (for EEs, CS majors have it split into two courses and learn it all in C++). And then obviously EEs do a fuckton of C and assembly in various courses and CS majors go deeper into more programming languages and basically ignore C and assembly outside of a reverse engineering course.

something like clang format wont catch what the first comment posted since it's valid. In that case it might be more obvious to catch later when you see it's not at the same indent level, but the formatter doesn't know the intent of the code so it cant fix it. If it were a subtler example you would most likely end up missing it entirely.

Function parameters are not evaluated in a defined order in C

>> No.70410058

And this is problematic because? b-- decrements b by one after accessing b. So you pull b, see that is 5 and greater than 4, and then store it as 4, pass true (which in this case evaluates to one) as an argument to printf, and in the next operation would have b as one less. Your first example is problematic because C won't evaluate both at the same time, and in what order it does so is undefined. So in this case the compiler spat out code that
int main(void) {

int a = 4;
//sets a to 4
int b = 5;
//sets b to 5
//and evaluates the following line as such:
printf("%d %d", b-- > a, b-- > a); // this prints "0 1".
//the second comparison is evaluated, spits out true (1 in this case), and decrements b by one
//b is now four
//the first comparison is evaluated as 4 > 4, which is false, or 0, and then decrements b by one again
//b is now three
//printf is called with the arguments of ("%d %d",0,1)

This is undefined behavior. C is an inherently procedural language, and simultaneous operations don't really exist.
