comment Which if statement requires less computation?
The fewer operations you need to do, the less computationally complex it is. This is obvious. Mathematical proofs and Big O notation don't really make sense here, because the time taken averages out as a constant factor, so both will be of O(n)

swtich 'code' formatting for quote formatting, to make more readable

comment Could I GPL this code?
Your work belongs to you, perhaps, but the original code belongs to them (Carnegie Mellon University). If they agree to re-licence it, then it can be done. If not, it can't.

comment Why do I have to keep my open source software license in the root?
'The Internet is not ubiquitous' would be the most obvious reason (even if someone has the internet when they download your software, it may not be available to them when they want to extend/modify it).

comment How come project managers stand above even team leaders?
I very much doubt this would be an acceptable question on the Project Management SE site. Moving it there isn't a better solution than closing it here.

comment How does one read RFCs and similar documents?
Forget "learning resources", think about "documentation". That's what RFCs are.

comment Switching licenses, or cross licensing existing GNU GPL v3 software
fork of GNU coreutils with a range of modifications doesn't give the impression that their result is entirely separate. It may be that you're right, but that's not the impression that is given by the question.

comment Switching licenses, or cross licensing existing GNU GPL v3 software
@mh: but that's not applicable. the asker wants to re-licence the code already covered by the GPL, not just their own additions, which is not allowed.

comment Is switch-case over enumeration bad practice?
I just want to make a comment that though @MainMa's answer makes sense in this situation, using an enum in a swtich statement in general is not bad practice and can make your code much more readable. It's just a case of getting a feel for when it's appropriate. public enums should probably be saved for things like configuration values of a class, etc.

comment What norms/standards should I follow when writing a functional spec?
most organisations will have their own templates, standard layout, expected content, etc. I don't think the real world posseses a one-size-fits-all solution.
