I honestly am not sure why the former method is so popular. I think it's a pain to read, and quite annoying to fix when you have an unmached bracket. Those are easy to get when you're doing any sort of sigificant code building or modification.

    I don't see the disadvantage in either of those two for editing. I do agree with editing being made more difficult with cuddled else as in } else {. Now that sucks.


    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[Lady_Aleena]: Good morning Corion, I hope you have a wonderful day as well. 8)
[Corion]: Yesterday I encountered an interesting data structure problem. I have a remote program that emits events, and my client listens for these events with one-shot callbacks, that is, I register the callback and if the event gets generated that callback ...
[Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, every day. Chaos is my life with few controls.
[Corion]: ... gets called once. The data structure for that is just a hash of arrays, mapping the event type to a queue of registered one-shots, and the first one-shot from the queue gets removed and called.
[Corion]: But now I want to register a one-shot for two events, of which only one will arrive, so my data structure doesn't work anymore...
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, ouchy.
[Corion]: (maybe I should write this up as a SoPW) - currently, the "most efficient" data structure I come up with is a single array which I scan for the first fitting one-shot. Not efficient but I don't expect more than five outstanding one-shots anyway
[choroba]: can't you create a meta-key corresponding to the disjunction of the events?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Heh. This whole thing smells of Strategy Pattern or MVC pattern.
[Corion]: And performance linear to the number of registered one-shots doesn't feel that bad. Maybe I should collect statistics on how many callbacks are outstanding ;)
