comment How to teach a script to detect sarcasm?
@DaveNay: The statement is missing a closing bracket and would be better expressed as containsSarcasm = string.Contains("<Sarcasm>") anyway. However: if someone tackling an open problem, it's bad to ridicule of OP's request, especially given that you're not knowledgeable in this field. Computational linguistics exists since the 1950s and has yielded some interesting insights into sentiment analysis, semantic role labeling and other semantic techniques which might be employed for this.

comment Does MS Visual Studio 2010 contain icons for source files?
Well, the only script icon in there is a VBscript icon which look exactly like the Windows 95 scripting host icon, but anyway, it's good to know this.

comment Is Prolog professionally useful?
Good question. Prolog is the first programming language taught in computational linguistics at Uni Potsdam, but after that we don't really use it that much, even if we're quite good at it. It's a pity. Every time I see a question such as "How do I use an accumulator" or "How do I get all possible answers" on StackOverflow, it makes me wonder where the actual professional users are – most stuff seems like homework. Or maybe Prolog proficiency turns you into a robot who never has questions.

comment Ways to organize interface and implementation in C++
That's not what my lecturer did. He spent the whole first C++ semester doing best practices and no STL/Boost at all, just implementing string classes and smart pointers and some automata things.

That's what I mean too. Do you have an example?
