comment Linux equivalent to Visual Studio “Debug -> Attach To Process”?
And for what it's worth, my colleague was not presenting as a "failing" of Linux (although the downvoter(s) presumably took it that way)... he was saying it makes Linux programmers think more deeply about their code since they don't have an easy tool to fall back on

I specifically mentioned Eclipse in the question as an example IDE. So if you need a language, let's say Python, Java, or C++

comment Should I use nameof to avoid repetition in constants?
Why do you need an extension method like that? Can't you just call ToString on any Enum?

comment Should we use a monorepo?
@gnat, I had seen that question, but I am having trouble applying that very general advice to my specific situation. (However I feel that my specific situation is still common enough that the question should not be closed :)

comment Should I notify my colleagues when I find a bug in their code?
You said I don't need to tell him because he can "look up the bugs he caused". If there is no automated way to find "the bugs he caused", how can he "look them up if he cares to know" without anyone telling him?

I never heard of a tool that could do that. It does not even seem possible to automate such analysis. Could you explain what you mean?

comment eradicating the array = loop mindset
The title is incorrect. I did not write it. Obviously the code is not checking for values but for indices (I guess not obvious to the person who changed my title). And no, there is no "other code" that I left out... all it is doing is checking for specific values of indices

comment how to do temporary tables in Linq to Entity Framework
But that permanent table would have a "global" scope, unlike temporary tables, which are local to the particular connection. One solution to that would be to generate a name for the table that is guaranteed to be unique, perhaps by concatenating a GUID. Also you would need to bypass Enitity Frameword to send DDL statements to the database for creating and deleting the tables. And you would not be able to use Entity Framework to populate or query the new tables.

@DanielRHicks, COBOL "barely" still exists? According to this, 90% of financial transactions are done in COBOL, and 5 billion lines of new COBOL code are added to live systems every year ... cis.hfcc.edu/faq/cobol

comment Is there any algorithm pattern to protect any content in the web to ensure I am the first one who created it?
There are date-times embedded in the block headers in bitcoin... although they are not enforced by the protocol, they are generally trusted to be at least "ballpark" accurate (i.e. well within 1 day accuracy)... it's also possible to inspect the entire blockchain from the block in question until today to make sure the date-times are monotonically increasing

colleagues that are 20 years behind the curve and a boss that wants to know what data types you're using... I love this site for reminding myself how much worse my job could be

comment Will Java catch up with C#?
I think "the ability to write a program on Windows and deploy it on Unix or Mac, will never happen directly by Microsoft's support" has been disproved now
