That's a ridiculous amount of work for such a simple project. Good job, you should end up getting get some free cycles.

string inventory[] = ["sword", "shield", "healing potion"];
writeln("You have:\n", inventory[]);

Odd, I always wrote it like this instead:

string[] inventory = ["sword", "shield", "healing potion"];
writeln("You have:\n", inventory);

Know if it's any different?

lmao, nice! You might want to mention that D is slower than C / C++, and that it's a garbage collected language, like Java.

Can we make a new Programming Language
posted to Ask

It is very possible, as we wouldn't have anything but binary right now. I'm pretty sure this message was sent using JavaScript, and it was made by someone (or more, most likely), wasn't it? Of course, it was! But the real question is "WHY"? Why should we make a whole new language when there are thousands? Why is yours better than what's available? Are you trying to make a better version of C++? It's still being updated, and there's D anyway. Are you trying to make a stricter version of JavaScript? There's TypeScript already. Are you trying to make a language specifically for graphing? Too late, already done, I think that'd be R. What's it run context? Will it be executed in a browser, on a computer? Is it fast, optimized, efficient? Will it work on a Mac, Linux, or a Windows system... or all of them?

Lastly, and most importantly... making a new language is EXTREMELY hard, okay that's not necessarily true, but making a good + useful language is anything but easy.

Why can't repl.it's c++ compiler find pdqsort from Boost?
posted to Ask by DeltaPavonis

Repl's stuff is quite outdated, I tried to use some Boost stuff that they didn't have before too. Yeah ik, kinda sad. It's not all kept up to date. They're still using Clang-7 after all.

@Coder100 On top of that, this is a pretty good April 1st joke.

But looking at the code, are you sure you didn't want to use a function callback for the replace value?

Should I make a report card generator?
posted to Ask by HahaYes

@DynamicSquid Clang supports it, I tried it once, I didn't actually stick with it. Hopefully C++20 modules will make it redundant anyways.

@MrHackman Why Fortran?

Okay, okay... you need to stop, if not, then slow down, like A LOT. You don't just learn HTML for 3 days, not know JavaScript, not know CSS and suddenly expect to copy the most widely used and most popular search engine on Earth as of 2020 with success. It just doesn't happen. You need to thoroughly learn HTML first. There are HTML tutorials everywhere across the web, maybe FreeCodeCamp, or w3schools?

Also, Google is more than a single webpage that has a button that shows you everything, it has plenty of server-side and client-side code. Like unimaginable amounts of links and complex systems and web crawlers and so much more.

For future reference, don't write "PLEASE UPVOTE!!" in your post, also, writing that it's by 'your name here' is usually redundant, unless you're giving credit to the original author/developer.

@CodeSalvageON lol, you put the ".5", nice. You potentially prevented everyone who has seen this from catching COVID-19. For that we, The Good Folks at StudentFires, thank you.

Yellow Stone Zombies: An Apocalypse Game (300 Cycles Special)

Recommendation: use to "lower case" to allow us to not care about caps.

I need help for my 500 cycle special
posted to Ask by DynamicSquid

Lmao, you won't do this, my recommendation: "Octopus".
If you don't want that: "Octopus Squid".

Also, the opposite of "dynamic" is "static," you know where I'm going with this.

Also, your mine field game was a grid, so "Grid Squid".

You CAN'T beat this game. You just can't.

Btw: for portability, don't use system("clear"), use std::wcout or wprintf on L"\e[H\e[2J", that's the shortest ANSI sequence for clearing the terminal.

What is Replit's goal?

Here's an ancient post that might be of help in answering your question: https://repl.it/talk/ask/Do-you-actually-plan-to-take-over-the-world/10.

The code for a website

Just a heads-up: the <xmp/> tag has been deprecated since HTML 3.2, we're currently in HTML 5. I can remake this website in XHTML and have it be semantically equivalent.

@CodingCactus I meant that you ought to look into how to make a server, as it can be done in Python (Without going through hell and back, like C++).

File Nuker C++
posted to Share by TehEpicCoder

Those “numbers” you didn’t know how to tamper with, I tampered with: https://repl.it/@StudentFires/FileNuker, It’s far more readable now.

The code made literally no sense, after heavily debugging your code I realized that most of it was useless. the for loop should’ve just contained the file >> file_text, the rest of it happened when the loop ended.

Btw, this ate up a full Gigabyte of my Repl storage, luckily I’m on the Hacker plan.
By targeting non-existent files, it required memory.

I crashed when using const auto nuke_text = std::string(2e9, ' ');, but it should effectively delete any file, that or system("rm "+userInput)

I thought I knew how to destroy other people's reps, but I failed. If this worked this'd be pretty cool.

Tampering w/ the numbers, can't these be changed?

Doesn't the data consumed in the multiple calls across the stacks usually outweigh the size of the table?
