comment What would be good factual arguments to convince high level management to consider functional programming?
@Back2dos good point. I definitely did not meant to imply all or nothing

@DocBrown - yup! Reading stuff via RSS reader has its downsides.

comment What is different between the internal design of Java and C++ that lets C++ have multiple inheritance?
@kdgregory - yes, I specifically expected a decent asnwer to delve to the level of detail that your second-to-last comment mentions. "because they could but chose not to" isn't an answer, it's handwaving. Also, "whether you understand" is - leaving aside being a bit on the rude side - fully irrelevant to how SE works. A good answer is there for 100% of present and future readers, not only the OP.

Unless Java has an equivalent of vtables, I'm pretty sure this answer is wrong.

@Snowman - sorry, we are still on 6 here. I'll update the question to restrict to 1-7, but feel free to post what Java 8 added that covered the gap and what wasn't available before.

comment What is different between the internal design of Java and C++ that lets C++ have multiple inheritance?
@Doval - unless calling a.X() in case of diamond inheritance is an undefined behavior, I would say that it solved the problem. Now, whether it solved ALL the conceptual problems of multiple inheritance as an idea, is a different story, but it's not germaine to what I'm asking.

I distinctly remember my Languages CS class professor stating the contrary, though for the life of me I don't recall the reasoning since I haven't done C++... well, ever, since college.

comment Which data structures and algorithms should I consider for a directed rooted tree that has high churn?
that's why when the question asks for data structures and algorithms, it asks for just that, and not specific implementation :)

Using Windows filesystem for a unix server would be a cute trick

comment Data structures and algorithms for a directed rooted tree with inherited properties?
@btilly - yes, that's definitely the kind of architecture I will be implementing. However, the lag from changes to reflect in the updated caches should be minimal so algorithms and performance would still matter a lot.

comment Which data structures and algorithms should I consider for a directed rooted tree that has high churn?
@RobertHarvey - seems like an accurate assessment. I'm not saying a great solution exists, I'm saying I don't know enough about advanced tree algorithms to know for sure and hoping that some meaningful optimizations can be made, even if they aren't of magic wand variety. Hell I'll take linear optimizations :)

@RobertHarvey - I'm not too familiar with that structure beyond skimming the Wiki article now, but how would it help here? I would think it would actually be more useful to my other question (because it does contain "is X in a set" questions on data that has a fairly large "standard" distribution and a smaller set of outliers)
