comment Team constantly fails to meet sprint goals
I've worked for a company which was succeeding while never completing the planned content of a sprint, and we DID switch to Kanban instead. That made everything a lot smoother.

comment How to argue against this “completely public” mindset of business object class design
@Kritner the whole point of auto-properties is that if you do need actual logic in there in the future, you can seamlessly add it in place of the auto get or set :-)

comment How to argue against this “completely public” mindset of business object class design
For the private backing fields with no logic in the properties, is there a reason why you aren't using auto properties?

comment Is there a term for rewriting code from an interpreted language to a compiled one
@aeongrail I realized that when I wrote this, I was thinking the OP had specified that this was a manual rewrite. I now realize that they did not - they just said "turn some R code into C code". If we were talking about using a tool to do the work, transpiling would definitely be a word for it

comment C automatic variables
I don't think you get what gnasher729 is saying .. you are passing an uninitialized variable header to checkForHeader(). It is ignoring the passed-in value and overwriting the local copy with the result of calloc(). Nothing is returning that pointer to the calling function.

At least you can't accuse MUMPS of false advertising for being named after a nasty disease.

comment What is the use of MSB and LSB?
@JörgWMittag great answer! But to play Devil's advocate, there is arguably the disadvantage for a right-handed person that they would be more likely to smudge if they write right-to-left with a quill and ink, no?

comment Why does C# have both out and ref?
I have no questions. I just think that the final paragraph of your answer was a bit misleading; I have edited, hope the change is OK with you.

comment Why does C# have both out and ref?
Sorry, not seeing it in your sentence. You said out doesn't require you to initialize the variable before you pass it into the function. I don't see any mention of any requirements regarding what happens inside the function, and how they differ from ref which doesn't have any such requirements.

That's not the only difference : out does require you to assign something to the variable within the function, otherwise it's a compile error.
