    Re: Any C# programmers?

    A poster asks about C# support in Linux, so he can work on his C# school assignments, and as usual (when the topic can be construed, or often misconstrued, by "linux fanboys" into being all about...

    Including ones who "haven't used C in over 10 years", but will happily give you advice about it in nearly every thread (although the advice is usually "use Python instead").

    Re: C/C++ forums

    Just to let you know, CodeGuru (and Code Project) are very much Windows programming resources.

  6. Re: general how-to on converting old proprietary formats

    Re: Why proper error handling should ALWAYS be done

    Nope. calloc() simply serves the purpose of initializing the memory to 0. It doesn't try to ask the OS if the pages can actually be committed, and then gracefully return a 0 (to the app) if not. It...

    Re: Why proper error handling should ALWAYS be done

    Yep.

    Wy, this may have to do with the differences between the size of your swap file and total RAM, and his. You're probably running under a more constrained system, so you really are hitting the...

    Re: Why proper error handling should ALWAYS be done

    But Linux over-commits (by default). So you don't know how much memory is enough to cause a 0 return value. All you know for sure is that a 0 return value is possible, and if you "handle" it by...

    Re: What do you guys think about C# under linux?

    That's disputable. But what isn't disputable is that a discussion of MS' business history is not a discussion about programming. And the OP didn't ask about MS at all. Why are moderators locking...

    There is no other discussion about how Linux's OOM Killer works, and how to avoid triggering it.

    There are advantages and disadvantages. It's so hard to say without looking at a specific application.

    This thread is about Why Linux has an "OOM killer" and what programmers can do to help get rid of it. If someone thinks it's about something else, he's wrong.

    Much too "dynamic"... when a post in this forum isn't even about programming, and is just an MS bashing "advocacy post".

    Um.... where??? I don't see any convincing posts detailing why there should be exit()'s in shared libs.

    All we know for sure is that malloc can indeed return a 0 on Linux (I've had it happen to me...

    Is there something wrong with advocacy newsgroups such that people must instead have those conversations here?

    And you thought correctly. You've already gotten a head start upon certain people who have written shared libs, because you'll be doing it correctly from the beginning.
