comment Is there a faster way to work out this logic?
As long as you know in advance how many integers you'll be dealing with, why not use a plain array instead of an ArrayList?

comment Why isn't rich code formatting more common?
@Newtopian: When I use NetBeans, I don't have to tell it each time I type something what color it should display it in. It determines, based on the (customizable) rules, what colors things should be displayed in. The formatting wouldn't have to be custom-done as can be done with Word.

comment How do you share your craft with non programmers?
It would be a hurting world where you couldn't program your computer to make programming easier ("visually searching . . . for an errant comma").

comment Python: What is the point of using “import”?
-1: You can have packages in a language without requiring include statements. Python could have been designed so that you never have to use import statements; libraries could just be loaded when an identifier in another package is used for the first time (though that might be a little less efficient overall).

comment Python: What is the point of using “import”?
-1: I don't know Python well, but my understanding is that you have to import a package to use anything in it in Python. In Java, you don't technically ever have to use import statements; you could just write out the full, qualified names of classes, etc. in other packages.
