comment Why do programming language (open) standards cost money?
@Snowman Third-party to what? I suppose you can bend the meaning of the question to ask about the "price of a product", but I strongly feel that the intention of the question (asking about the rationale for pricing that way) is clear. As a side note, I find it harder and harder to understand what exactly the purpose of programmers.SE these days. Practically all questions meet their closing faith after some time because someone will come along and try to close it.

comment Where should I place a typedef when used in method signatures in C++?
What do you mean by compilable? I'm under the impression that codereview.SE is specifically for code that compiles and works fine but requires review. Isn't that true for your code?

I think this is better suited for codereview.stackexchange.com

comment Why is Mercurial considered to be easier than Git?
@faif sorry, it was years ago, I don't know exactly which comparison I meant. It is more of a general sentiment though that keeps coming up (and I think this is not only my own perception since this question has gotten a lot of attention).

comment Representing a deck of cards in C (not C++)
Another reason to use int might be performance-related. Most architectures do best on accessing int-aligned data (though your struct might be padded to do that anyway).

comment Most efficient data structure for implementing inheritance structure without classes
As for the amount being stored outside the class: you could pass that as a parameter, but maybe it would make sense to store in the class? Without knowing your requirements in more detail, it's hard to tell.
