That reminds me of a usenet post I collected a while back.

This is a second-year compiler course, so these aren't newbies; they've been going through this for over a year. The lecturer is explaining how the compiler compiles the program itself into machine code and that goes here, meanwhile the variables are allocated space here and the constants go in this other area. Meanwhile the stack and the heap are ...

Then a student put their hand up and asked "where do the comments go?"

(Jaded as I am from over thirty years in the industry, my first response to them would be "well done for writing some.")

I did not get the joke in the "the real capitalist world" comment on the linked, and locked, thread.

It seemed to be arguing that capitalists do whatever they do to turn a profit. Which is true enough. It also seems to imply that "whatever they do" is ethically/morally acceptable and we should just accept it. Like "It's OK, it's capitalism".

Now, I'm no communist, and I have no qualms with people building businesses and making money. But I will not accept that "anything goes".

As I said, I did not get the joke.

Endianness, the order of the bytes, comprising a digital word, in computer memory
en*wiki/Endianness#Etymology wrote: Danny Cohen introduced the terms Little-Endian and Big-Endian for byte ordering in an article from 1980.[2][3] In this technical and political examination of byte ordering issues, the "endian" names were drawn from Jonathan Swift's 1726 satire, Gulliver’s Travels, in which civil war erupts over whether the big or the small end of a soft-boiled egg is the proper end to crack open.

This may be more depressing than funny but I've found log entries at work that include -0 (negative zero, not indicating subtraction) and -2-1=1. It has given one of my co-workers and I some amusement deciding whether zero is positive or negative.

Several, if not most of the ways to represent signed numbers result in having a representation for negative zero.

one's-complement is just an inversion of all the bits. So 11111=-0 and 000000=+0. Two's complement (invert the bits and add 1) has replaced one's-complement in most places, certainly where arithmetic is involved because there is more fiddling to do to get it to come out right.
Floating point numbers use sign-and-magnitude where a bit indicates if the number is positive or negative and the rest just gives the number. So if the sign bit is 1 the number is negative, even if its magnitude is 000000.

In both cases usually hardware will "normalise" the number before you have to deal with it, and that includes converting -0 to +0.

And in any case, a test for -0==+0 will always return true... unless you are comparing the bit pattern of course... So you need two comparison instructions, which is another reason those forms are rarely used.

Free interesting fact: In two's complement, you can imagine the most significant bit is negative and the others are positive. So for example with a four-bit word, bit 0 represents +1, Bit 1 is +2, Bit 2 is +4, but bit 3 is -8. So 1111 is 1+2+4-8 = -1. Whereas 1000 is just -8 and 0111 only adds up to 7, which explains why it's always asymmetric; with 16 bits the range is -32768 to +32767 and so on. And of course that extra negative number is where the space for -0 went to. One's complement is symmetric but has two zeros.

Wrong way round. "Never trust a computer you can lift."

Quite so. I would sooner trust a computer that arrives on the back of an articulated lorry than these modern things that you can flush down the toilet.
