The Evolution of a Programmer

這是一篇我在四、五年前看過的文章,大意是說在不同的階段,對同一個問題所用的解決方法會有所不同。
其實是很棒的文章;不只是最後那段幽默。
文中能用不同的方式來解同一個問題這點,我覺得就很發人省思了。

另外;我們可以從最未得到一個很明顯的結論。
越高階層的人,通常越少動腦思考…

The Evolution of a Programmer



High School/Jr.High
10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD"
20 END

First year in College
program Hello(input, output)
begin
writeln('Hello World')
end.

Senior year in College
(defun hello
(print
(cons 'Hello (list 'World))))

New professional
#include
void main(void)
{
char *message[] = {"Hello ", "World"};
int i;

for(i = 0; i < 2; ++i)
printf("%s", message[i]);
printf("\n");
}

Seasoned professional

class string
{
private:
int size;
char *ptr;

string() : size(0), ptr(new char[1]) { ptr[0] = 0; }

string(const string &s) : size(s.size)
{
ptr = new char[size + 1];
strcpy(ptr, s.ptr);
}

~string()
{
delete [] ptr;
}

friend ostream &operator <<(ostream &, const string &);
string &operator=(const char *);
};

ostream &operator<<(ostream &stream, const string &s)
{
return(stream << s.ptr);
}

string &string::operator=(const char *chrs)
{
if (this != &chrs)
{
delete [] ptr;
size = strlen(chrs);
ptr = new char[size + 1];
strcpy(ptr, chrs);
}
return(*this);
}

int main()
{

str = "Hello World";
cout << str << endl;

ECSA 考試之後

今天通過了ECSA 考試,順利拿到證書。 但是70% 及格的考試,我是70.67 過關。 特定幾個領域的問題全部都不會,沒概念也答不出來。 還有一題,從題目到所有選項、都有看不懂的單字,到最後只能猜。因為從題目到四個選項,我都不知道在講什麼東西。 所以過了又如何,離開...
