comment Is the phrase “never reinvent the wheel” suitable for students?
I think learning not to reinvent the wheel is more important. There are many things you can do that don't involve creating something that was already created.

comment Bug reopen vs. new
Citing bug IDs in patch notes is just.. very unfriendly.

comment Is it a waste of time to free resources before I exit a process?
If there is a leak and you never notice it, then it's not a problem. The goal is not to create a perfect program, the goal is to create a program that the end user will like.

comment Is it possible to speed- read code well?
From the wording he used in the post, I think he wants to do basically a code review. "emphasis on debugging and finding issues".

comment When stuck, how quickly should one resort to Stack Overflow?
@David: "But asking your own question is something that you shouldn't do, until you've tried really hard to answer the question for yourself" ==> If everyone did that then the first step ("try searching for a question") wouldn't work since basically any problem can be resolved without asking on stackoverflow, so no questions would ever be asked and this website wouldn't exist. If the question is not obvious and doesn't exist, asking it will benefit all the other people who will encounter the problem again.

comment Do we still have a case against the goto statement?
@Andy: I don't care if 99% or 10% or 76.54% of programmers don't have a need to use goto. You said that "gotos are unnecessary", this means they always are and for all programmers. I gave you in total 4 valid reasons for their use, I can find more. If you said "gotos are usually unnecessary" I would agree with you.

@Andy: see programmers.stackexchange.com/a/125738/112 for examples of uses where goto is good, along with mine and many others

"maybe lambdas will allow it" => They already do, as of August 2011. The current standard of C++ is C++1x. Also all mainstream compilers (gcc, visual studio, etc) already support lambdas.

It's not true that goto's are unnecessary. This is a very broad statement without foundation.

comment Is it normal to think about a design problem for days with no code written?
You should tell us what you are working on. If you are creating a new programming language it's one thing; if you are creating an "About us" page on a website it's another.
