comment How would I change the precision of a variable in Python?
Yeah, that clarification was absolutely necessary, because due to floating-point precision what you're trying will not work.

"if(!event) is the same as if(event == false)" is also not correct

0 evaluates to false as well (and yes, is an object - for example: 0..toExponential(3))

comment Why do we need fork to create new process
@imel96 Uh, yes, the shell does need to change the file descriptors so stdout of find goes to stdin of grep... Otherwise output will just continue to go to the terminal's stdout, that it inherited from the shell.

comment Continuing to code on large projects
Versioning by folders works (sorta) if you don't care about the differences between the versions. I used to have the same loss of interest, but decided to try using git with my own projects after using svn at work. Now, knowing what changes I have made (by diff and log) and the ability to branch and merge have removed most (but not all!) of that mental barrier. Thing is, it took a month or two before I got used to using version control by myself and not on a team. How long did you try it?

comment Programming Language vs Markup Language vs Scripting Language
@spartacus I'm calling that a hesitant "no". I think any language that can be compiled could also be interpreted (just execute the instruction instead of saving it), but I've heard that homoiconicity severely restricts the possibility of compilation
