Hi Ohlbe,
» Sorry ElMaestro, we're going quite far from your original question... :offtopic!:

That's OK.
The occasional drift on this forum always pleases me.


As for the logic, it is absolutely !7==!3 what you are saying, programming involves that kind of logic which is entirely bound to ones and zeros and that can be hard to grasp when the reference is our everyday language.

If it is any comfort, I can confess I usually can't read Hötzi's code right away. I usually use a lot of time deciphering it, or giving up. This is because syntactically it is condensed. I tend to use much longer lines and bigger functions to achieve the same goals. I can't maintain code otherwise, but this is just me.

Vector: Something that carries something, according to Birdsong's Internally Hosted Vocabulary (the platform is walnut-sized).
The object of this carriage may be information, like "two steps in this direction and then five steps in the perpendicular direction". Or "Apple and thereafter Syphilis".
The origin of the word is from the Illiad by Homer, song 13, in which Thetis says: "Vector bears it in triumph upon his own shoulders.", possibly expressed as such because he was in love?! Or at least this is my belief since it was said in relation to some amour.

Le tits now.

Best regards,
ElMaestro

To call the statistician after the experiment is done
may be no more than asking him to perform a postmortem examination:
he may be able to say what the experiment died of.    R.A. Fisher
