comment What is the simplest translation file format for a user to edit and for a program to parse?
@Dan Ross gettext is good and there are many translations for many programming languages. But, wheter plural or singuler or gender, you may want to split a single word in several categories.

What Programming Language, or Programming Enviroment are you using ?

(+1) Asking a common, yet, not very well explained subject.

comment UML Class Diagram: How can I represent “orthogonal” generalizations (or multi-inheritence)?
(+1) Agree, the "backup" feature "sounds" more like composition ...

comment UML Class Diagram: How can I represent “orthogonal” generalizations (or multi-inheritence)?
(+1) For clarifying the "UML does not have any problem with multiple inheritance ...", very common mistake !!!

comment Why does C have no competitors in low level stuff?
I heard that Apple, originally used Object and Class Oriented Pascal ("Mac Pascal") before changing to "Objective C"

comment Why use getters only as opposed to marking things final?
I remember some C-alike language, that support properties with accesor functions, that have syntax different from functions & fields ...

comment What’s the opposite of abstraction?
@jhocking The brakes & the accelerator of a car are opposites, yet, also complements. Cheers.

comment What's the difference between syntax and semantics?
@Keith Thompson: You missed the point. Is a semantics or syntax question, not a C standards question. The standard is right, but, my answer was directed to explain a concept, not, following literally, a standard. It's like a "Captain Kirk" v.s. "Dr Spock" question. Cheers;-)

comment Why don't we store the syntax tree instead of the source code?
@Daniel Albuschat An AST program using simple XML (program with a constant and 2 functions): codepad.org/itUIsFmI

comment Why don't we store the syntax tree instead of the source code?
@Daniel Albuschat I store & load the data of AST in a customized simple XML (XML without attributes) file. So my programs can be done with a text /XML editor, or a GUI, altought, that wasn't the original idea. Haven't used Clang or LLVM, altougth LLVM seems more promising, for progr. lang. design than that GCC, Clang or JVM. The hierarchical nature of XML was good for me to store the AST.

comment Why don't we store the syntax tree instead of the source code?
@Daniel Albuschat I working a pet programming language project.The parser its difficult to implement, so I skip it, for the moment, and made a tool where I show the AST (form with treeview control), & add expressions directly. And can do the opposite, generate the code from the AST.

comment What are your decision critera in C++ to make something a data member or virtual method?
@sdg & David Stone. I should clarify myself, that, conceptually speaking, the developer thinks, "I'm going to use this feature only as data, don't care about methods, operations are delegated to other classes, everthing is public". For, the optimization, part, I work with compilers, and, using "struct" instead of "class, sometimes helps, sometimes not. Cheers.

comment Naming for a class that consumes an iterator pattern
@Chris Marisic : Agree, but, the "aggregator" word seems weird to me.

comment What are some practical uses of the “new” modifier in C# with respect to hiding?
@Joel Etherton: As you may alredy know, sometimes developers have to "pick" others people programming code. And we may not authorized to modify, maybe extend classes. And may require to use both, the previous member & the new one.

comment What is the order of diagram drawing in a design?
P.S. I added "uml" and "design" tags so other people may look into your question. Besides, many people still use non U.M.L. design & techniques.

comment How do “custom software companies” deal with technical debt?
In real word, its common to have this case. I worked in several companies that, intentionally, sell or rent an intermediate software, with generic modules, that allow some customization.

comment How to handle repetitive code dealing with object properties?
Are those properties coded by different developers ? are those properties always from objects already defined, or you can change those classes ?
