comment Is there some way to mark which branch is the latest in subversion?
Yeah, but we use a frequent branch strategy, meaning I have to go clone the job every week or so. I was looking for a hands-off approach.

comment Whiteboard “testing” during an interview: legitimate way to back up your (whiteboard) code?
I know this is old but I just got linked to it, and I wanted to point out: one of the hallmarks of a visual processing disorder is lack of ability to estimate the space you're writing in and therefore ending up running out of room. If the person you're evaluating not only runs out of room for more lines, but also has characters get smaller toward the end of a line as they realize they've begun too big, they might just have a learning disability rather than not understanding how long the code will be. Ask them to estimate something non-spatial and you may get a better result.

@WinstonEwert OMG yes! That seems to be the right lines!

Downvote revoked; it's still not the answer I'd hoped for but at least it's answering the question more now. Thanks

@Snowman I tossed in more clarification. Really, anything that can do so without as much human effort would be welcome, and if there's nothing out there, I'd like to know that too.

comment Easy way to make old javascript files conform to new quoting standard?
I find answers that offer no solutions but instead challenge the frame of the question are rarely useful. This is one of many avenues I'm pursuing; what I need is information on how plausible this would be, to weigh against other options. Your answer gives me no useful information, and feels like a rant instead. Perhaps I shouldn't have asked at all.

comment Easy way to make old javascript files conform to new quoting standard?
Eh, that's out of my hands. The team wants to have a standard quoting rule, and I'm looking for possibilities to make that not painful. If they change their minds and want to remove the rule, that's totally fine by me, but it's not my call to make decisions like that for the whole team, that's on the team leads.

I'm open to moving this wherever it makes sense.

@MichaelT Good idea, it might be better there. I don't see a migration option to rec in the flags though

Can I do this with the built-in unit testing tools?

comment How to port this architecture to .net?
@Oded Do you want to make an answer with some frameworks that support this? I did look briefly into the idea of using unit tests to accomplish this but I wasn't sure I could segregate them in this manner, it's definitely work looking into.

comment How to port this architecture to .net?
@Euphoric Yes. This isn't normal software; again, if I explained what we were making the workflow would make sense, but I don't feel comfortable getting into too much detail (I'm probably being silly about it, but better safe than sorry when corporations are involved)

comment How to port this architecture to .net?
@Oded We'd like to be able to unit test other parts of the code, and we don't want all the software functions to run in their entirety during a build because many of them won't work on the build server. Can we segregate unit tests so that some of them are required for a build to be acceptable and some of them don't fire during the build sequence?

Aha! That's the kind of trivia I was looking for :D Thanks!

comment Why is it called a 'Here Document'?
Sure, but I wouldn't call a picture a 'document', even if it fulfills some of the technical requirements outlined in Wikipedia

comment Why is it called a 'Here Document'?
Huh. Maybe it's a regional linguistics thing: I usually see "document" used as "The kind of file you'd make in Word" and "file" or "data" for more generic uses. The term "Heredata" would make more sense to me >.>

comment Why is it called a 'Here Document'?
Since when is a prettily formatted string a "document" necessarily? The one implies data connotation that a heredoc doesn't necessarily have. +1 for making me smile though :)
