Very nice. However, if you are not looking for a math job but for a
programming job, I recommend looking at the Oracle or the Google
Java Code
Conventions, as your code is ill formatted, and I would not be terribly
excited over it as a potential employer.

Are you familiar with the GNU Emacs, the EMACS was considered the
world's best academic world text editor in its time? It still is
running strong.

Yes, I am. It is, as far as Java goes, an antiquated dinosaur which, it
appareas, does not even support proper code formatting.

That code has been formatted with the conventions of the GNU Emacs, and
was taken from the NetBeans IDE which I'm using. Do you know the

Yes, Netbeans is Suns/Oracles IDE which is also generally considered the
worst IDE out of the big three. That code is still ill formatted.

Therefore, I would not be immensely excited over that entry as an

I asked for justified, matter-of-fact response. Why do you feel that
those demo programs were somehow bad? Hostility without grounds usually
leads to a sardonic response, as the response by me.


He actually explained that your formatting did not follow
Oracle coding convention (also known as Java coding convention).

For me, this post ist EOD, because I frankly don't care to argue with
someone who is evidently not interested in improving themselves and
of being grateful for advice lashes out in an attempt to defend against a
practice that the vast, overwhelming majority of the Java development
has adopted over a decade ago now.

Ah, if you say that this Java code from GNU EMACS and the NetBeans is
ill-formatted, then maybe you could change to being constructive and
tell the newsgroup in which ways it is ill-formatted.

"....who is evidently not interested in improving themselves...."
That is an unsubstantiated allegation, as my circles would call it.


He pointed out the problem (formatting not following coding
convention) and you did not express any interest in investigating
the coding convention or changing your formatting.
