in thread Runtime introspection: What good is it?

Ah, I see, very clever! It uses two virtual method calls, and takes advantage of the fact that once the first is started, the compiler knows the type of that first object and so can find the right overload for the second object's intersect. I'm not sure what the advantage would be over the RTTI solution, although it would be interesting to compare the performance.

[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
