    Re: performance(speed) comparison of Python and C

    I have never doubted that you Python programs are much shorter in length than the equivalent C program. The problem, as is the topic of this thread, and as I and others have mentioned is Pythons poor...

    Re: performance(speed) comparison of Python and C

    The problem with the results presented on that site, is the fact that most of the heavy lifting is left to the underlying C/Fortran library. As you have noted, it is fine for contrived examples, but...

    Re: returning an Array in C

    It would be helpful if you posted the actual errors that you are getting, and what code you've written that generated those errors.

    Re: Clash of the titans : Java vs. Python

    Agreed. I used to be sold on the concept of Java, write once, run anywhere. Of course, this is true to a certain extent. Java applications usually run without any major changes on Linux, Windows, and...

    Re: performance(speed) comparison of Python and C

    In theory, this is true. However, if you're saying that C has gains in the order of tens or hundreds, assuming your program in C takes an hour to complete a task, your python program is going to take...

    Re: Program Won't Run

    What language are you using? I'm guessing your program is called a.out. If you want to execute it, you need to type the command ./a.out as the current directory isn't part of the PATH and the './' is...

    Re: What to use for C++?

    I disagree with learning to program using IDEs, especially the open source ones. The reason is this. When something goes wrong, which it invariably does with Anjuta, what are you going to do? The...

    Re: Updating JDK

    Download and install the latest version. That's the easiest way, and I don't think JRE incremental updates work on Linux, only on Windows. Besides, that's only for the JRE, not the JDK you're after.

    Re: How can i make java program executable?

    Well, the problem is that files like .bash_rc and .profile aren't read when you log in to GNOME. They are only read when you launch a terminal. That is why you can run your script correctly when you...

    Re: How can i make java program executable?

    I think the reason why it only works in the Terminal, is because the files /etc/profile and $HOME/.profile (or $HOME/.bash_profile) are only read when you run the Terminal. It's a strange 'feature'...

    You don't need GNOME to dabble with C#. All you need is the Mono framework, and if you're interested in an IDE, Monodevelop.
