You seem to know a lot about Tcl. Do you think you could fill in some info for it on the Language Comparison Table? The Tcl row is lacking a lot. If there's anything else there that you feel you could fill in it would be appreciated. --Mwn3d 16:15, 8 April 2009 (UTC)


It would be nice if you added a version to the Search Yahoo page that loaded the results into tdom and used its XPath support to pick out the results. IME, tdom's pretty cool to use that way and more people should be told about it. It also ought to appeal to you for this task... —Dkf 22:05, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

I tried, but there was an unclosed span element that broke the parsing, even with the "dom parse -html" option. Meh. Goes to show that only a browser can parse HTML (to paraphrase "only perl can parse Perl") --glennj 22:57, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Loop structures

Could you focus your efforts on pages in Category:Iteration rather then in the deprecated loop structures task? If you could, make sure that code and explanation from loop structures is covered in the Loop/* pages? Remove it from loop structures if it is, migrate it if it isn't and fits into one of the tasks, or mark it if you're not sure what to do. --Mwn3d 17:36, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

gotcha. I'll look at adding a few tasks to that category. --glennj

Sort most popular programming languages

I'm sorry. I just forgot to implement querycontinue. I'll implement it later. Thanks. --Guga360 20:28, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Echo Server

Is the Ruby solution to this correct? It's not clear to me that it can service multiple lines from each client simultaneously, not unless there's a lot more magic there than there appears to be (and which would then benefit from a clear set of comments...) —Donal Fellows 22:52, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Step loop

Good call on Loop/For with step. I completely forgot about it. --Mwn3d 18:16, 10 July 2009 (UTC)


I noticed that you moved the JScript page to a category (instead of just a regular page). Was there a particular reason for this? -- Eriksiers 21:05, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I want to use JScript as a distinct language to implement some tasks, and the {{header|something}} tag links to something's category page.
Undone. --glennj 20:33, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Page deletions

To delete a page, note it in a talk page or directly ask a beureaucrat and/or administrator. --Mwn3d 20:31, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Cheers --glennj 20:33, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
On a related note, when changing a page to a version that is identical to the immediately previous revision (like you did with JScript), it is easier (and usually makes more sense) to just undo the changes. (History page -> undo.) -- Eriksiers 20:35, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Lang tag fixing

We have a bot (which I assume will start working soon) that will put lang tags in and fix the extra newlines. You don't need to fix old examples anymore. --Mwn3d 14:52, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Hamming Numbers

Hi Glennj, Try looking at the various algorithms here for quicker ways. All take no longer than 2 minutes to calculate the millionth term on my four-year old laptop, and some should be straight-forward to translate to Ruby. --Paddy3118 05:52, 23 December 2009 (UTC)


Please stop breaking up examples onto subpages. I believe that this makes RC less useful, because it means that interesting characteristics of examples in languages that “aren't mine” won't catch my eye since I would have to click through to see them. --Kevin Reid 18:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
