comment Why aren't young programmers interested in mainframes?
If businesses paid me good money, and they were willing to train a programmer who had no exposure to mainframes, then I'd probably take that job.

comment How does Jump Point Search algorithm work and why is it so efficient?
By manually timing them with a timer. Human errors might indicate that im off by maybe few seconds or more but there is no way that it took as long as the times mentioned in the applet. Maybe it is referring to something else or it is a bug.

comment How to rewrite from scratch a code for which I own the copyright so I can use it on my job without losing the rights to the first version?
Great answer, but randomly CAPITALIZING words in the MIDDLE of the sentences seems.. very meh to me. Isn't that what bolding is for?

comment How is an IDE compiled?
@jwenting I never necessarily said that compiling IDE needs an IDE. It was just a general assumption made by me since as others said, IDE is just a piece of software too so it sounds logical to me that they may use the previous version of IDE to build the next one. I was just curious in how the IDEs are built but basing them off the IDE example seems to be a terrible idea.
