    I didn't watch the match but saw updates. I want to congratulate Gael first of all for a great tournament but Federer is the man. Saving two match points at age 33 is simply fantastic. Djokovic-Federer final here we come!

    I am proud of Roger, Novak, Zuckerberg, Khodorkovsky, and anyone Asian who has done anything at all (even if it means including the Japanese). Non-billionaire =<4.0 unasian tennis hacks/journeymen with sub-4.0 GPA in fine arts at low-ranked unis need not apply.8)

    I don't understand the bolded and red syntax. Are you intending it to be "less than or equal"? If that's the case, it is "<="

    You obviously don't program in C++. The correct syntax for "less than or equal" in any conditional statement in C++ is "<=". I will make a list ofl the conditional statements below:

    equal: "=="
    not equal: "!="
    greater than: ">"
    less than: "<"
    greater than or equal to: ">="
    less than or equal to: "<="
    assignment: "="
    increment: "++"
    decrement: "--"
    addition appending: "+="
    multiplication appending: "*="
    addition: +
    subtraction: -
    multiplication: *
    division: /
    modulus (remainder): %

    Yes yes, I meant "less than or equal" and everyone knew what I meant, I am sure. The "<=" looks like an arrow and this is not a C++ summer class here. Effective communication means situational adaptivity, sorry.

    I'm not familiar with bash, snake, and ruby. Javascript operators should be virtually identical to C++. HTML is more similar to LaTex and technically isn't a programming language. Python should also have similar syntax. The main difference that I noticed when I messed around with Python was that it was obviously much less strict in terms of defining variable types. Spacing, however, is much more strict in terms of how the format of the code has to look, but any good C++ programmer practices that coding style anyway. Syntax is also different for certain keywords like "and" and "or" in Python versus "&&" and "||" in C++. I tried learning Python for fun and have not touched it since January, so I am quite rusty.

    "->" is an arrow and means that you have a pointer to an object that is calling a function from a method. "<=" does not look like an arrow.

    Example:
    //Assume the Zombie class has been predefined
    Zombie z; //Declare a zombie object
    Zombie* z_ptr = z; //Declare a zombie pointer and have it point to the Zombie object
    z_ptr -> eatBrain(); //Have the zombie pointer call a private member function in the Zombie class

    I thought people (including some of the dimmer ones) would be bright enough to recognize “=<” for “less than or equal” and it turns out I was right. It’s called “effective communication”!:lol:

    That is syntactically incorrect, however, and anyone with a knowledge of programming languages would get confused because "=<" is incorrect syntax and would lead to a compiler error.

    Are you also a programmer?

    I work in SAP PI. I use lots of Java and ABAP in it :)

    That is an interesting (albeit irrelevant) assertion, but there is no evidence to back it up at present. We are yet to see an individual “with a knowledge of programming languages” to claim confusion over my usage of the symbols. On the contrary, it appears that individuals with very limited programming skills are able to discern the intended meaning just fine.:lol:

    Let's pretend you are an Integrated Developmental Environment like Xcode on a Mac or Visual C++ on Windows. Try typing in "=<" and see what happens.

    Damn, you just don't miss an oppo do you :D :D


    bash/shell would probably be:

    -lt
    -gt
    -ge
    -le
    -eq
    and these are for numerics, IIRC.

    There's also from the top of my head:
    -z (blank string)
    -f (if file) and its variations for readable etc.

    Not to forget:
    -or
    -and
    since Max mentioned "conditional", although he listed out all operators.

    If memory serves me correctly, HTML is a presentation language, so i don't think it has operators, at least not till HTML 4.

    ruby has most 'C' operators but not "++" and "--".

    python sucks. ;)

    LOL, i can't believe a thread about Roger has got derailed so much. Max, those were 4 hours of hell Roger put us through.

    I think I shall create a language called Roger which does a divide by zero at the most critical moments. Inside of keywords like "if" "case" and "for" it will have "segfault", "coredump", "stackoverflow", "illegal_malloc" etc which can be called whenever required.

    I don’t mind fantasy games and role play, but it would have been helpful if you had defined the discussion parameters upfront. How about this for a fitting thread title:

    Let's pretend you are an Integrated Developmental Environment: I'm so proud of Roger

    ?

    The thread title was not a function, why do I need to include parameters to pass in? I was merely correcting you on a syntactical mistake for a C++ IDE.

    ABAP is a programming language used in SAP. SAP is enterprise resource planning software, more like a business management software. It integrates all business processes. SAP PI (Process Integration) is a middle ware. It is used to integrate heterogenous systems in a landscape. A landscape may have webservices, databases, dot net systems, SAP systems, file systems and using PI they can all exchange data.

    For ex, assume you speak French and I speak Latin, and we don't know each other's languages. You need someone to translate it to something like English that we both know. PI talks to different systems and xml is used like the language to translate. It's just a loose explanation :)

    Passing on the parameters from the start is one way to control the process. When I request a jug of ice tea from the staff on a steamy August afternoon, I always mention lemon and blueberries, even if I am talking to the butler.

    Never heard the usage of that preposition in the context of your first sentence. I think you mean "in" rather than "on". That is a correct first sentence but this thread was never intended to display the flow of control in a compiler. It was to exclaim my adoration of Roger Federer's play today.

    I meant SoBad.
    You can include html in here and usually <= is written as either
    &le; or ≤

    So he could write this with embedded html (using html /html in bbcode-brackets)
    HTML:
    Non-billionaire ≤ 4.0 unasian tennis hacks
    (I'm not really suggesting this, just saying...)

    Apologies, I am not very familiar with HTML. I need to start learning after my summer school to design a website for my volunteering club's fundraising initiative. Any advice? I tried Codecademy for a week at the beginning of June and liked it a lot.

    Thanks for your thoughts on that. They are interesting, but I guess I'll just take a risk and let that sentence stand as written.:lol:

    Thank you, I am flattered.

    So what was all that about:

    The statement in question is 100% grammatically correct and would have been an acceptable preposition to use on any SAT Writing test question. The actual context, in computer science terms, was incorrect, however. Props to you man!

    I should have been less ambiguous, so I am sorry about that.

    That is an incorrect term; you cannot just bunch the languages together and call it "Indian". Most of my Indian friends speak "Hindi".

    No, but from the context of your statement, I interpreted "Indian" as your attempt to classify the language that Indians communicate in, which is an incorrect terminology.
