comment What would happen if two different commits in one git repo had the same hash?
The universe will end. Only joking. If it rely did happen. Then you would be rich and famous. You may even get some sort of prize.

comment How meaningful is the Big-O time complexity of an algorithm?
@gbjbaanb It was one grain of rice on the first square etc. And it is O(2^n) not O(n^2).

comment What is the connection between messages in sequence diagrams and method calls?
Are you saying that it can be “Is A calling its method doSomething which in turn uses B in its implementation?”

comment How do you use exit status code?
What OS are you using? Unix uses them a lot, often positive values are for errors e.g. search did not find what you are looking for. Negative values are for faults, e.g. invalid file-name. i.e. some sort of programming error (you told it to search a file that does not exist).

comment Reading file during write on linux
@CodesInChaos Both I would guess, I was wondering what would happen if you modified it, not delete+create. My guess is that when an app is loaded, the OS opens the file in COW mode (Copy On Write), the if and only if Some process changes the content, the OS will make a copy (of the modified blocks). One copy is linked to the process(es), the other to the file. When all processes using the original are closed, then the original copy is deleted(as no file-system entry). This is just a guess, based on what I know the OS can do.

comment Reading file during write on linux
@CodesInChaos Too true, but most apps lock, do you know if you can go in a directory with out locking? Also I am just thinking, how do executables on Linux work with out locking (Both systems use just in time loading, so bits can be loaded a long time after program start), may be it uses its super cow powers.
