comment Is the 'finally' portion of a 'try … catch … finally' construct even necessary?
@supercat Can't think of such a situation on top of my head, but it sounds like it'd be worth introducing another struct for that case.
comment Is every language written in C?
@Michael well, sort of. C++ hasn't been a true superset of C for a while now though. greyfade it could have been written in C. There just wouldn't have been a programmatic compiler for it, so it would've have to have been translated by hand, which is a huge pain.
comment Why do programmers still use mailing lists?
You still need to signup - and the process isn't significantly easier than signing up for a forum. Subscribing to more than a handful non-dead mailing lists means you'll get tons of messages everyday, most of which you're not going to be interested in. If you're not interested in a subject at the moment you'll either have to unsubscribe or filter the list, instead of just not going to the forum.mailing lists may have a couple of merits, but imho not enough to justify the disadvantages.
comment Using a texture as an integer array (OpenGL 3.3, shader version 3.3)
I do now know how I could miss that. That book seems to be precisely what I've been looking for this entire time.
