comment Can objects constructed from the same class have unique method definitions?
@knut: I'm pretty sure that extend actually just creates the singleton class for the object and then imports the module into the singleton class.

comment How has an increase in the complexity of systems affected successive generations of programmers?
Check out some of the articles on this blog (Programming in the 21st Century): prog21.dadgum.com. He talks a lot about modern computing power, effective infinite resources, and so on. It's also a great perspective of someone who did 8-bit game programming, and really knows the low level stuff.

comment How to prevent code from leaking outside work?
This is the kind of ridiculous security that only top secret government data needs. Although I think it's reasonable to have a government programmer in the NSA doing that, I can't imagine any civilian company needing to go that far. +1.

comment How to prevent code from leaking outside work?
Unless you work for a government institution where secrecy actually matters, this is a recipe for disaster for the company. If you're so worried about your stuff being stollen, you should go do one of those silly patent and trademark and copyright nightmares that everyone seems to be so into right now.

comment Create code editor auto-suggest (like IntelliSense)
Some languages do. Take a look at GCC-XML for C++ and maybe C. It might be able to do the other GCC languages too (like Fortran). For other languages, you could do some digging with their source code (like taking the source of the Ruby parser and turning it into a library), but that would be a lot more effort than you're looking for.

comment Is it possible to call a Javascript function from C?
+1 for V8. I think that it's written in C++, you you could probably pretty easily wrap it in a C interface (if it doesn't have already).

comment What is the correct order to read these books?
Here's another one you might want (many consider it the C#.NET bible): Pro C# 2010 and the .NET 4 platform, fifith edition (they might even have one for .NET 5 and VS 2012 soon).
