http://snipplr.com/view/68872/palindrome-check-in-c/
A palindrome is a string that reads the same both backwards and forwards. Famous examples are "Madam I'm Adam" or "Able was I ere I saw Elba". This function checks that a given string reads the same backwards and forwards. (requires including stdbool.h) ]]>Sun, 02 Dec 2012 12:43:58 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/68872/palindrome-check-in-c/(C) Ternary Counting In C
http://snipplr.com/view/68870/ternary-counting-in-c/
Here's a fairly useless but fun piece of code: counting in base 3. This takes in a number of digits and counts up in ternary. Be warned, though. The algorithm is (for obvious reasons) O(n^3), where n is the number of digits. Actually probably theta(n^3), since n^3 is both the upper and lower bound. Either way, it spits out 531,441 possibilities for 12 digits, so be careful not to run it on too many digits. ]]>Sun, 02 Dec 2012 12:41:23 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/68870/ternary-counting-in-c/(PL/SQL) How To Change The Value Of A Sequence In PL/SQL
http://snipplr.com/view/68869/how-to-change-the-value-of-a-sequence-in-plsql/
I'm pretty meh about Oracle's PL/SQL, but its inability to reference and change sequences has been pretty frustrating over the years. Until now. Thanks to the Puget Sound Oracle Users Group's website (psoug.org) for showing me how to do this. ]]>Sun, 02 Dec 2012 12:39:22 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/68869/how-to-change-the-value-of-a-sequence-in-plsql/(C++) Calendar Calculation in C++

Really DP-lite. Memoize the solution for a recursive problem so it can be looked up on subsequent iterations. ]]>Sun, 02 Dec 2012 12:34:58 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/68866/using-a-map-for-dynamic-programming-in-c/(Haskell) Linked List in C

You have to use float or double for the returned value, since the scale occurs in a continuous function. ]]>Fri, 10 Aug 2012 11:35:33 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/66636/scaling-values-into-a-range-between-0-and-1/(Java) Quicksort in Java, with Enforced Suckitude
http://snipplr.com/view/64808/quicksort-in-java-with-enforced-suckitude/
It's no fun implementing QuickSort unless you can force it out of its blister-fast, O(n log n) speed and humiliate it with its worst-case, O(n^2) runtime. So that's what I set out to do.
My naive partition simply pivots around the low item, but my randomized partition defeats the sucky inputs by choosing a random pivot. (If you're interested in checking out a QuickSort which naively partitions until it hits an attempt to get it to run in quadratic time, check out IntroSort -- which simply fails over to Merge Sort when it exceeds its optimal recursion depth.) ]]>Tue, 08 May 2012 00:02:25 GMThttp://snipplr.com/view/64808/quicksort-in-java-with-enforced-suckitude/(C) Two Binary Search Functions in C

Problem 18: Extract a slice from a list.
Given two indices, i and k, the slice is the list containing the elements between the i'th and k'th element of the original list (both limits included). Start counting the elements with 1.
Example:

"cdefg
