    I've just created my own program like cat, ls etc. and modified the .bashrc file in my home directory so I can just type a command (such as 'cat') to run it. In the spirit of things, I'd like...

    Re: C++ noob question.

    tbh I'm a bit of a noob as well, and learning C as opposed to C++, so I could be wrong (but it sounds like the languages overlap here)...

    I'm fairly sure (that at least in C), *var refers to the...

  8. Re: C - assigment makes integer from pointer without a cast warning

    Excellent point. I've basically fixed my problem by reading up on pointers again (haven't done any C for a little while, so forgot some stuff), and doing:

    Re: [SOLVED] Why is C slower than Java?

    I'm sure it is generally, but with this example of a for loop and printing a number each time within that loop, it doesn't seem to be the case, which surprised me.

    Re: [SOLVED] Why is C slower than Java?

    I did try to output the value of count in the for loop as well before (and again just now with optimisations enabled), and java was still around a second quicker.

    Re: Why is C slower than Java?

    Thanks, I suspected it could be something roughly like that... I did originally have more 0's, but the java compiler complained at me :(

    Re: Why is C slower than Java?

    Cheers for the input, but I doubt it since the printf is outside the for loop, and the C program once compiled takes around 3 seconds to print, and the java one takes around 1/10th of a second

    [SOLVED] Why is C slower than Java?

    I was always told how C is faster than Java, so I decided to write a few very basic programs to see how much slower it is (if at all) at using basic commands like if, for etc. I compiled my code, and...
