comment Do pointers really exist in Java?
@MichaelBorgwardt Pointers were invented before C existed and the term really isn't C specific but as it is used it always has some connection to memory addresses. Just use the term 'reference' when talking about this concept in Java there are too many differences.

comment Clarification of “avoid if-else” advice
So you just put the negated condition into the else if? That doesn't seem too DRY to me. And there is also the risk that if you change the condition you forget to change the negated one. I do not like it.

comment Pure C Vector Implementation
You could also add something about spatial locality to your list :) I don't want to write it in a separate answer but I think it should be mentioned.

comment Does modular programming affect computation time?
While I agree that most of the time it is premature optimization, I think that your argument with the time is bad. Time is relative in different situations and you can't simply calculate like you did.

comment Have Superclass Contain List of Subclass?
He is keeping the Class objects not the instances of the subclasses so there should be no problem with GC imho. However I would change the collection to Set instead of List to avoid duplicities.

comment When to decide to introduce interfaces (pure abstract base classes) in C++?
I am asking just hypothetically so I can not respond to the last paragraph. Of course, you are right and I expected someone will play the premature optimization card against me :)
