I am Sakis Kasampalis, a Software Engineer based in The Netherlands.

My study interests include Software Engineering, all aspects of Programming, and Operating/Embedded Systems. I enjoy writing code in pragmatic languages, and I am not dogmatic about particular programming languages and tools. My principle is that the right tool should be used for the right job.

Are the error messages readable? Please mention some details about the language, compiler, etc.

You can tell them that computers are not good in generating real random numbers, only pseudorandom. It's better to use hardware based randomization for that.

comment Why do functional programs have a correlation between compilation success and correctness?
@delnan Correct, I never said it has those features. My comment was on Lisp being a functional programming language (it's not unless it is explicitly designed as such, like Clojure).

comment What is grouping?
@ratchetfreak I disagree. The second edition is still the best published C book ever. It is a compact book that demonstrates how to write modular ANSI C code. Are there really so many changes between ANSI C and and C11?

I like your answer but I don't see how it answers the question of the OP

comment Why do functional programs have a correlation between compilation success and correctness?
I agree with @delnan. This statement is more related with statically typed functional programming languages, especially Haskell which uses the Hindley-Milner system. I think that the main idea is that if you get the types right the confidence that your program is correct is increased.

@delnan I wouldn't say that Lisp is a functional programming language, although it can be used to write functional programming code. Clojure which is a Lisp dialect is a functional programming language
