comment In *nix, is there a practice for storing static libraries?
@Akiva: No, not necessarily. Program functionality remains the same, regardless of the linking choice.

comment In *nix, is there a practice for storing static libraries?
The fact that the python interpreter is a shared library may have nothing to do with that. It's more likely that, if such scripting is in fact not allowed, it's for security reasons.

Read compsci.hunter.cuny.edu/~sweiss/resources/…, section 5, subsections 4, 5 and 6.

comment Search algorithm on sequential data model
linear-search and binary-search are just algorithms that are laid over the top of an array or linked list. You can do the same with any other search algorithm/data structure. Your linked list nodes can also be in a hashtable, for example.

comment Search algorithm on sequential data model
If a tree can be a sequential model, then so can any other search data structure such as a hash table, skip list, radix or trie.

The answer to this question is going to be highly dependent on what kind of UI technologies you use.

comment Is this a valid situation for returning rather than throwing an exception?
Can you create a facade or adapter that does this instead? At least you could constrain your yuckiness to that. You'd have to remove all those catch blocks in the original methods, of course. But your facade could provide some data capture and exception analysis.

comment Is this a valid situation for returning rather than throwing an exception?
I guess it's as good a solution as any. I've never seen exceptions passed around this way, but why not. It's an object, like any other.

comment Is this a valid situation for returning rather than throwing an exception?
If we're going to break the API, then why not just rethrow, and require your callers to handle the exception? Or not handle the exception at all, let your callers handle the thrown exception directly?

comment Design: Lisp (or other scripting language) as an interactive interface for C++?
He says that "the [Lisp] syntax will be quite foreign to the users" and you recommend something that is even more obtuse than Lisp. Then you recommend Lisp. Are you sure you read the question?

comment Design: Lisp (or other scripting language) as an interactive interface for C++?
I would find a scripting language you like that has a C Foreign Function Interface, and use that. This one looks promising. There is also Lua. Even Python would work.
