comment Decimal to 17-bit 2's Complement Signed Number
As I recall from when I looked at the protocol spec in the early 1980s, MIDI looks at the MSB of EVERY byte. If the MSB is set, it is a command byte. If the MSB is clear, it is a data byte.

comment Is there a way to use a higher level language in a competition that only has C, C++ and Java by default?
You just brought back memories of the ACM programming competitions I attended at Texas A&M in the early 1970s. (I was a UT Austin student.) We could use FORTRAN or COBOL. They gave us IBM 029 key punches, and they wrote the JCL for us, since some of us came from schools that didn't teach on IBM computers.

comment Is it OK to split long functions and methods into smaller ones even though they won't be called by anything else?
@exizt: Yes, it does. So what? If you coded the function correctly, it is OK for other things to call it, if they need its functionality.

comment Is it possible to reach absolute zero bug state for large scale software?
That "one error" was a special case. The Shuttle was originally designed, and the software specified, for two robot arms. The "error" was that there was still code in there to support the second arm.
