comment How important is understanding the coding behind sorts?
@AndrewMartin: Quite the opposite. As the answer states, there's generally never a need to write them. They exist in libraries already, or the libraries you're using already sort the data if needed. It's a very low-level thing. And if you did find your self in a place to need to write one, who cares if you can magically write the best version off the top of your head? I doubt anyone could. Just look it up.

comment Does auto make C++ code harder to understand?
@paul23: What does using auto versus the type gain you, then, if your only objection is "I don't know how to use this". Either makes you look it up anyway.

"one can never prove that a program is correct" That's not true.

comment Downloadable Game vs Non-Downloadable
@MMavipc: I see, that's awkwardly phrased to me. :) How about: "Might be a little slower. If JIT is not used, it would be a lot slower."?

comment Downloadable Game vs Non-Downloadable
"May be a little slower unless JIT compiling is not used, then it would be a lot slower" Seems extremely backwards to me. JIT is what makes Java faster than C++ in many cases.

Why -1? This is the first thing I thought of.

comment Why do we have postfix increment?
@Cody: It's the former. (That said I'm in the rare group that's totally fine with breaking code with huge changes, if it means better code, but that's a separate issue.)
