  Carriage return and line feed


In programming and document editing, we may frequently encounter carriage return and line feed, i.e the well known CRLF.  Do you know about the history and difference of carriage return and line feed?Before computer came out, there was a type of teleprinter called Teletype Model 33. It can print 10 characters each second. But there is one problem with this, after finishing printing each line, it will take 0.2 second to move to next line, which is time of printing 2 characters. If a new char...

  Cool HTML5 matrix effect


Do you still remember the movie The Matrix? Do you still remember the cool matrix effect in that movie? How is that effect achieved? Shaun Dunne shared a piece of HTML5 code which displays a cool matrix effect. The matrix demo can be found here. Below is the code which he achieves this effect: with var s = window.screen; var width = q.width = s.width; var height = q.height = s.height; var letters = Array(256).join(1).split(''); var draw = function () { q.getContext('2d').fillStyle='rgba(0,0,...

  Using vi key bindings in bash and zsh


Takeaway: If you prefer to use vi or vim for command-line editing, you can configure shells to use vi key bindings instead of emacs-style key bindings. Here’s how. By default, most shells use emacs-style key bindings for command-line editing and modification. For users of vi or vim, however, you can instead configure shells to use vi key bindings instead. This is done by editing ~/.bashrc in the case of bash, or ~/.zshrc in zsh and ad...

  sorting in C++: 3 times faster than C.


If you don't know C++ well, you might be surprised how fast C++ can be sometimes. This is especially true when code involved is small, because then inlining - which is what C++ is very good at - and templating, which makes excessive inlining possible in the first place - has the most effect. The following code compares C and C++ sorting:  #include <iostream>#include <algorithm>#include <vector>#include "stop_watch.inl" // see https://...

  A collection of color schemes for some famous websites in China


Each website has a color scheme which identifies itself. By looking at one color, we can know which website it is for. These color schemes can be identified from their logos, nav-bars, background etc. We collect some color schemes for some famous Chinese websites. Alibaba (#f90)   Baidu (#0000cc)   Huawei (#e30a12)   HTC (#69b40f)   JD (#c91623)   Renren (#105ba3)   Sina (#e4351e)   Sohu (#fdd000)   Taobao (#ff4400)   Tencent (#0397de)   Tmall (#...

  Art of code comment


Note : This post is just for fun. Please be careful about these tricks. Code comment is to provide complementary comment to abstract codes. We will introduce two comment styles while we are debugging our codes. we should avoid these styles in production codes. 1. if else style Only execute eatKfc() //* eatKfc(); /*/ eatMcdonalds(); //*/ Only execute eatMcdonalds() /* eatKfc(); /*/ eatMcdonalds(); //*/ Execute both //* eatKfc(); //*/ eatMcdonalds(...

  Do you have this kind of comments in your source code?


Writing runnable code is the essential skill of a programmer, writing understandable comment is also a skill a programmer should acquire. There is some famous saying that bad comment is worth than no comment. Usually your code will be maintained by other people, if you provide them some difficult to understand or misguided comments, this will be nightmare to them. While at some other time, programmers may put some funny comments in their codes which may make others laugh. Today we...

  How the Go language improves expressiveness without sacrificing runtime performance


This week there was a discussion on the golang-nuts mailing list about an idiomatic way to update a slice of structs. For example, consider this struct representing a set of counters. type E struct { A, B, C, D int } var e = make([]E, 1000) Updating these counters may take the form for i := range e { e[i].A += 1 e[i].B += 2 e[i].C += 3 e[i].D += 4 } Which is good idiomatic Go code. It's pretty fast too BenchmarkManual 500000 ...
