In Topic: Tkinter - asksavefilename vs askopenfilename - neither?

19 October 2013 - 05:35 PM

Yeah, I thought of that, too.  The catch is that this is the very last piece of my application that I need to finish.  The whole thing is complete apart from the Save functionality and all done in Tkinter.  Ugh.  I hate to mix the two, but maybe for this one piece...


In Topic: Data structure to represent/access synonym lists

Ah, I got it now.  The map provides the cannonical form, and the multimap returns the whole list/set.  Seems obvious now that you point it out.


In Topic: Data structure to represent/access synonym lists

Hmmmm....not quite there.  This seems fine to get access to the preferred name by any synonym or the list of synonyms by any preferred name.  It doesn't address the question of getting the full list of synonyms from any single member of the list.

 

For example, given the synonym list [A,b,c,d,e,f], with A being the preferred name, I want to get the entire list as well as the preferred name by using any single member of that list.  syn_list['d'] would return [A,b,c,d,e,f] as well as the preferred name 'A'.  syn_list['f'] would return the same thing.


In Topic: 2D Array - really that hard?

We once spent two hours comparing lines on a "fix" he was trying to implement only to find out he hadn't put the latest folder onto the thumb drive.

 

 

Ah, the classic TDVC - thumb drive version control.  Love it.

By 'inherited' I hope you mean 'replaced within minutes'.

 

Excellent observation, but actually "inherited" in this case translates to "deleted and rewrote from scratch."  8^D

 

Just one more layer of fun.  When my colleague left, I was given access to his folders where he stored code - he didn't use any code management system, as if you needed to be told that.  I had to navigate by timestamps since his directory structure consisted of :

 

/old

/older

/new

/newer

/newest

/newer_than_newer

/most_newer

 

I'm not kidding.  <shudder>
