From another network:
[09:51:18] * DiabloD3 has quit IRC ("do coders dream of sheep()?")
[09:51:46] <Vorn> For fuck's sake, sheep() is not a function. it's a class. At least capitalize it.
[09:52:06] <guru3> lol
[09:55:16] * mgla has quit IRC (""Sometimes it's better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness." - Terry Pratchett")
[09:57:29] <Vorn> --actually it's a constructor.
[09:57:53] <guru3> i would say it's an object
[09:58:33] <Vorn> No, because there's lots of sheep.
[09:58:48] <guru3> could be an array...
[09:59:01] <Vorn> that'd be flock
[10:01:27] <guru3> well then sheep is a function
[10:01:39] * |VillageIdiot| has joined
[10:02:45] <Celestar> sheep might be an array of pointers?
[10:04:14] <Vorn> no, no.
[10:04:16] <Vorn> sheep is a noun.
[10:04:29] <Vorn> But it is not a proper noun, therefore it is a class.
[10:04:44] <Vorn> and since we're looking at what is obviously a function, we must be looking at a constructor.
[10:05:29] <Vorn> that or a factory function. Both of which are capitalized.
[10:05:58] <guru3> i would call it a function that like describes sheep
[10:06:05] <guru3> and the coder is dreaming of the source to said function
[10:06:50] <Vorn> In which case it is /still/ a constructor. That or a string output function, but then in any decent language we're using a special method for that.
[10:07:35] <guru3> well if sheep() returns an output, it must be evaluated in the sentence
[10:07:41] <guru3> so do coders dream of <output>?
[10:08:03] iRC is shareware! Please register.
[10:08:18] <Vorn> depends on the output. And now we need a more complete function prototype.
[10:08:33] <guru3> so sheep() could be a clever function designed to output porn instead for example
[10:08:36] <guru3> so then it reads
[10:08:38] <guru3> do coders dream of porn?
[10:08:39] * Zahl has quit IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[10:08:55] <guru3> or maybe sheep returns a pointer to flock;
[10:09:00] <Vorn> So we're looking at... Porn sheep()?
[10:09:54] * sw4y has joined
[10:13:20] * Tron has quit IRC ("leaving")
[10:13:25] * TronBSD is now known as Tron
[10:13:50] <Vorn> you know what? don't answer that.
[10:16:05] <guru3> yeah...
[10:16:10] <Tefad> sheep is a method similar to sleep.
[10:16:23] <Vorn> but sleep is a verb, so it can be a function.
[10:16:31] <Vorn> how the hell do you sheep something?
[10:16:35] * Tefad sheeps Vorn in the buttocks.
[10:16:41] <guru3> ouch
[10:16:41] <Vorn> agh
[10:16:42] <Tefad> just like that.
