It would.
I am also an INTP.

I definitely would not have guessed that. Welcome to the club.

Re: titles for posters?

it just so happens that I'm also an INTP I am no expert but I just might have been able to guess that. The INTP personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there's nothing they'd be more unhappy about than being &quo...

Re: Two Ulongs to Double

@dodicat At an initial glance, I did not believe that your function map() would give identical results to mine and was astonished when it did. The asm is faster and, of course, the n2 allows mapping 64 bits of information to give us a 53-bit granularity. Wow! @dafhi With some applications we need to...

Re: titles for posters?

@paul doe I wrote a long post supporting you which bordered on psychological profiling MrSwiss and BasicCoder2. However, I am not a psychologist so ripped it up. This thread is a classic BasicCoder2 utterly pointless thread. I have criticised BasicCoder2 in the past for starting such threads. Anyway...

Re: Two Ulongs to Double

The asm is an adaptation of code written by a guy at the PureBasic forums, Wilbert, who gave me permission to use it. I did not have to ask but that is what I do.

Re: Two Ulongs to Double

@dafhi: I think that we are talking two about different subjects.

What I am talking about is:

( 0, 1, 2, ....., 2^32-3, 2^32-2, 2^32-1 ) being mapped into ( 0,1 ].

So, 2^30 maps into 0.25 from 2^30/2^32 = 0.25

Re: Two Ulongs to Double

@dafhi Hmmm.

Show me how 2^30 maps into 0.25 as I do with 'Print UlongToDouble( 2^30 ) ' should give 2^30/2^32 = 0.25'

Re: Two Ulongs to Double

A bit more. Here is a function which will map either two Ulongs, (0,2^32-1), as above, or a single Ulong into (0,1]. Using two Ulongs we get 53-bit granularity and with one Ulong we get 32-bit granularity. We can also use the function to map a Ulongint, (0,2^64-1), into (0,1] if we break the Ulongin...

Re: programming for fun

If Mr Swiss gets a degree in computer science, life will be hellish on the forum. Sorry dodicat, got that already a long time ago, aka: nothing to worry about! When I read "I've started my BSc in Computer Science, at age 40, go figure ..." I thought MrSwiss had just started his BSc in Com...

Re: programming for fun

You mean to say, as much as your initial off target analogy, that prompted my reply? I was not speaking analogously, explicit, I was speaking metaphorically, implicit. Metaphors require imagination to interpret, analogies do not. Hell, I know that too. ... admitting the recognition of a metaphor an...

Re: programming for fun

Within a few minutes of posting, I was going to delete but by not responding to MrSwiss' inference it would naturally be assumed that I took one exam after another seamlessly in a carefree environment; which was well off target. with almost no support from my parents That is the tough part. If you f...

Re: programming for fun

From my point of view: you've no clue about spanners and probably, never had one in your hands. You probably think that my education was a bed of roses. Not so. In the UK we had 'O' levels, at age 16, and 'A' levels, at age 18. I got enough 'O' levels to go on to 'A' levels but my father said that ...

Re: programming for fun

I assume here that MrSwiss uses FreeBasic as a paint brush and I am using it as a spanner? Yes. Most of my crypto' code uses FreeBASIC as a spanner. In CryptoRndII there is a bit of 'painting' going on. With Encrypternet, although pretty heavy from an API perspective, it is essentially 'wall to wal...

I did. I thought that a 1.06 must be imminent. <smile>
