19:39 steven__ hey, I'm want to learn C and came to rosetta stone to find programming tasks
19:39 steven__ where can I find tasks organized by difficulty level?
19:44 mwn3d_hawaii steven__: we don't really do that. Difficulty is pretty subjective. There is a basic language learning category: [[Category:Basic language learning]]
19:44 Hypftier In a text book, probably. There was a collection of tasks regarding language basics, I think, but apart from that I know nothing of that sort to exist on RC
19:44 mwn3d_hawaii Aww...the bot is down...
19:44 Hypftier Ah, mwn3d remembered the name. :)
19:44 opticron yeah
19:45 opticron my vps is currently offline because comcast is slow and dumb
19:45 opticron which also means I can't push code to my svn repo
19:45 * opticron grumbles
19:45 opticron and I can't get to my mantis tracker
19:46 opticron and I'm currently running my IRC instance from my desktop at work
19:51 mikemol steven__: FYI, we're Rosetta Code, not Rosetta Stone; Rosetta Stone deals with spoken languages.
19:51 mikemol We don't really have tasks organized by diffulty level.
19:52 mikemol The collection of things Hypftier is thinking of was something I'd started curating, but I backed off on it when I realized that my idea of language basics is going to be fairly distinct from other peoples'.
20:00 mikemol steven__: Do you know any other programming languages already?
20:08 steven__ sorry, been away, yes I know many: Java, javascript, lisp, perl, ruby, ...
20:10 steven__ [[Category:Basic language learning]] seems to be what I'm looking for, thanks
20:10 mikemol steven__: Just be warned that that category isn't really maintained.
20:10 slavik1 steven__: in java: String a = "hello"; String b = "hello"; if (a == b) return 0; else return 1; what gets returned?
20:11 steven__ slaviki_: nice one, 1 is returned
20:12 slavik1 :D
20:12 slavik1 steven__: some people write java on their resume and don't know that :(
20:12 slavik1 they also don't know why: while (a = readchar()) { string += a; } is bad

20:14 mwn3d_hawaii joined #rosettacode
20:16 opticron yeah...the a==b thing is the first thing I learned when dealing with java
20:17 opticron but mostly because I learn languages by the seat of my pants instead of dealing with tutorials
20:18 opticron "well, it looks like of like C++, so I'll code it like C++ until something explodes in my face"
20:18 opticron shortly after that, something explodes in my face
20:20 slavik1 opticron: to quote a prof I had (describing how he learned php): I wrote it in C code and fixed the syntax errors
20:24 opticron pretty much
20:24 opticron I program by brute force
20:24 slavik1 ^^

20:37 * SmartKnowledge waves hello everyone

20:47 mwn3d_hawaii SmartKnowledge: yo
20:50 SmartKnowledge hi
20:58 dagnyscott left #rosettacode
21:58 mwn3d_hawaii We're up to 18460 according to the SMW properties. We should have a party or something when we hit 20k.
21:59 slavik1 what is that number for?
21:59 slavik1 the number of different examples?
22:01 mwn3d_hawaii its the number of times the header template has been used
22:14 BenBE left #rosettacode
22:20 SmartKnowledge left #rosettacode
22:21 mwn3d_hawaii Clarification on number of examples: the count includes draft tasks
