comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
"95% of the bugs in the program he made came from mismatched braces" - only in interpreted languages, not compiled.

comment Can an object oriented program be seen as a Finite State Machine?
the sofware in your cell-phone is a collection of hideously complex state-machine which remember many data and interpret them according to the current state.

comment How to access an encrypted INI file from C on an embedded system with little RAM
+1 for taking the time to reply. Maybe I should have made this 3 questions - encryption & memory usage. The latter is actually more important.

comment How to access an encrypted INI file from C on an embedded system with little RAM
Nope, I can't, because it is an INI file. That means reading the whole thing until the required value is found ...

+1 Ok, that seems reasonable for encryption. How about efficiently reading the INI file with little RAM available?

comment Differences between programming in school vs programming in industry?
+1 for a very good answer and +1 (should be more) for Ritch. If a s/w engineer is spending more than 20% of a project life-cycle on coding then something is very, very wrong. 50% design, 30% test, %20 for the rest .... everything else, including coding seems about right. With proper design, coding should be trivial. Without it, what people call "coding" is actually endless rewrites, trying to hack together a design of some sort as they go along </rant>

comment Seeking Windows file compare which accepts directories and filters for source code only
I bought it X years ago. I have v2 & am aware that there is a V3. Are you saying that this answers the question, or just that it is good. Specifically - can I tell it to compare all files in a directory & all sub-directories with a given extension, ignoring all files of other extensions?

mike, you get +1 too. I will take with a very large pinch of salt, but anything is better than nothing (and 2 weeks is a rather small sample time)

imo, Agile is just series of waterfalls. Very few can do waterfall correctly, ergo ..
