And $diety spake and said "If they exist, let them be equal..."



  • For those non-Java-ites, the Comparable interface (pre-generics) defines a single method,

    int compareTo(Object o)

    which returns a negative number if this is "less than" o, 0 (zero) if they're equal, or a positive number if this number is "greater than" o. I'm pretty sure this is similar to C# and other modern-esque languages. The function should also be transitive; that is: if a.compareTo(b) is negative, then b.compareTo(a) should be positive.

    Another aspect of compareTo() is that it is STRONGLY recommended that the equals method be overridden and return true/false values such that compareTo() == 0 returns true and compareTo() != 0 should return false.

    public class MyObject implements Comparable {
    

    public int compareTo(Object o) {
    if (o instanceof MyObject) {
    return this.compareTo((MyObject) o);
    } else {
    return super.compareTo(o);
    }
    }

    public int compareTo(MyObject mo) {
    int rtn = 0;
    if ( mo == null ) {
    rtn = 100;
    } else {
    // FIX THIS
    }
    return rtn;
    }

    }

    Note that equals is NOT overridden -- at all.

    The code was submitted to CVS in October 2000 and has yet to be "fixed."



  • Are you sure the name of the class isn't "Person"?  After all, all people are created equal.



  • @Sutherlands said:

    Well, except for the people that are null.  They're better than all of us.

     



  • @DaveK said:

    The other way around.



  •  Actualy, the null check is wrong too. As the comparable javadoc shows:

    Note that null
    is not an instance of any class, and e.compareTo(null) should
    throw a NullPointerException even though e.equals(null)
    returns false.

     As for equals, overiding equals automaticly means you need to overide hashcode too, but that's not all. A correct equal method most likely needs a handfull of helper methods and pitfalls to look out for. That makes compareTo seems easy.

     

    As far as the NullPointerException goes, i can kinda agree that If you insist to send my methods a null, i'll insist to give you a nullpointer!

    Nothing is more ugly then methods that start with

    If (param1 == null) {
       return null;
    }

    Rather, i use the wonderfull ability java has to throw a nullpointerexception for you when you write param1.method() if param1 is null.

    The function should also be transitive; that is: if a.compareTo(b) is negative, then b.compareTo(a) should be positive.

    That's not being transitive, that's being antisymmetric. The transitive property says that if a.compareTo(b) is positive and b.compareTo(c) is positive, then a.compareTo(c) must be positive (and similarly if you replace 'positive' with 'negative' throughout).

    Then there's the reflexive property, which says that a.compareTo(a) should always be 0. Put the three together and you have the requirements for a partial order, more or less. Add the restriction that a.compareTo(b) is 0 only if a=b (which it kind of is, by definition) and you have a total order. (More properly you'd have to define an equivalence relation via a.compareTo(b) = 0 and factor out the equivalence classes.)



  •  This code has been anonymised, right? That is, the super.compareTo is actually calling compareTo in a super-class of MyObject rather than causing a compile error because java.lang.Object doesn't have that method?



  • @zelmak said:

    I don't want to nitpick, but transitivity would be something like a.compareTo(b) < 0 & b.compareTo(c) < 0 => a.compareTo(c) < 0

    It's not being antisymmetric either. The antisymmetric property says that if a≤b and b≤a, it follows that a=b. The compareTo method doesn't actually only define one partial order, it defines two partial orders and one equivalence relation. I.e., it compareTo < 0, the two numbers are in relation 1, if compareTo = 0, they are equal, and if compareTo > 0, they are in relation 2. The rule he mentioned is just to make sure that relations 1 and 2 are "consistent", that is, a<b if and only if b>a. (Depending on how you define "negative", it might also say that equality has to be symmetric)

    Also, "<" is not a partial order. It's not antisymmetric. Don't talk bullshit.

    Mostly, yes, but since you can always override the comparison methods some people are more equal than others.

I thought I was eating the floatation device!" And then you stand up in the back and you're like, "you can't eat the floatation device because it's under the seat and you can't reach it with the tray down also it's not edible because it's made of plastic and has those cloth loops, also this city doesn't have a flight coming from New York last night because I checked the schedule of the only airline that flies direct to New York and it turns out it only flies 4 times a week, Sunday Tuesday Thursday Saturday, so your joke is pretty unbelievable, but of course if you're talking about Newark airport there's another airline that goes last night but that's hardly 'New York' now is it?

  • People who HATE math lectures are the people who invariably need them the most. Being innumerate is a major problem the world over and is more likely to have an (often unknown to the person themselves) negative effect on one life that being illiterate or illegitimate (although, of course it is the patents who really should be considered as such, not the child). Of course, there are people who fit multiple of these categories, and are actually proud of it.

    Not sure I consider this a "comedy forum", but then comedy and tragedy have always been closely linked. As far as the "8 year old's birthday party" item, it very much depends on the community of which one is a part.

    Finally look at how many of the WTF's post here have (at least to some degree) "an ignorance of mathematics and the scientific approach" as their root cause [the definition of innumeracy]. If we eliminate all of them, the forum would become much quieter. One can not understand why something is a failure unless one understands the principles behind the situation.

     Consider:

    Scientific method refers to a body of <font color="#0645ad">techniques</font> for investigating <font color="#0645ad">phenomena</font>, acquiring new <font color="#0645ad">knowledge</font>, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge.<font size="2"><font color="#0645ad">[1]</font></font> To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering <font color="#0645ad">empirical</font> and <font color="#0645ad">measurable</font> evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning.<font size="2"><font color="#0645ad">[2]</font></font> The <font color="#0645ad">Oxford English Dictionary</font> says that scientific method is: "a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses."<font size="2"><font color="#0645ad">[3]</font></font>

    So:

    1) Ecomonics are numerical in nature.

    2) Lapses in logic qualify as a failure to adhrere to "Specific principles of reasoning"

    3) Extreme disorganization is a failure to be "systematic"

    4) Ignoring pre-existing work is clearly a failure in "integrating previous knowledge"

    So all of the above meet the definitition of innumeracy.

    What's the connection between loving kittens and puppies and clawing out the eyes and boiling them in oil? I don't get it.

    Plus to boil requires water, not oil. Cooking something in oil is called frying!

    Besides, I don't hate math lectures, I hate math lectures on comedy forums. If I was reading boringmathlectures.com (which I wouldn't be, but bear with me), then I'd never complain about a post like that.

    OK, but who the fuck rants about shitty user interfaces and buggy software on a comedy forum? See, this isn't just a "comedy" forum. It's also a technical forum.

    This is not a comedy forum.

    [pls ignore mah stupids post]

    Even though it's a very enjoyable thread, I just have to ask why the forum being technical mean that talking about boiling cats is OK?  Why does that give one liberty to discuss the holocaust at an 8 year old's birthday party?

    (Which, BTW, very well could have been discussed at my 8th birthday party - I am not sure but knowing the raving half-lunaticconspiracy theorist my father was at the time it was sure possible. I just happened to be 8 and completely able to ignore such things.  I think I got a really kick-ass bicycle at that birthday.  That's all I remember. )

    It doesn't. That was a defense of talking about math. The boiling cats stuff gets a pass due to the fact that this is a trolling forum, too.

    Also it's a, you know, JOKE.

    You know, like that face-slapping dance in leather shorts that you show the tourists and try to make them believe it's actually part of your culture.

    Well, our real culture mostly consists of retarded people fighting over or complaining about trivial and meaningless political crap. Schuhplattler is most commonly performed as an upset reaction to when you hear the latest news of idiots who think they make an important point protecting 5 trees from being sacrificed in favor of a major infrastructural improvement to their city. Someone should tell them how many rain forest trees died for all their fliers and signs. Fucking Parkschützer.
