Re: on error handling mechanisms

Thank you for your comments above guys.
So I'm left with the flavor that machinery is a 2nd best.
Maybe recommendations instead would be:
- Write code that works
- Don't allow user interactions
- Something else?

(If I remember well it had been discussed in the past, but I was unable to retrieve that thread) When shall one add error handling mechanisms aka a try/catch/except/raise and when shall one not? (BTW is that programming language-dependent?) People seem to be binary about it. Either they write some e...

Re: FIVE years from now: can you predict the Software Landscape in anno 2023?

C/C++ Can’t Be Fixed You are not wrong. This article is suggesting C/C++ is "unsafe", but without being specific about it. Can you please explain why it is (would be?) so? I mean it doesn't make sense to me. Some specific uses of C/C++ (or any other programming language) can probably bring problems...

Re: Python tricks

Bonsoir, Monsieur tags It looks like explicitly giving the return type (Python 3.8.3?) just as in C++ lambda functions? https://docs.python.org/3/library/typing.html Looks important, anything that promotes robustness. Bonsoir Cuch. Tout va bien? Thank you very much indeed. I wasn't aware of this st...

Re: Proof for square-root-of-time rule

Depending on the degree of rigor you require, maybe also have a look at II.3.2.1 Volatility and the Square-Root-of-Time Rule in Carol Alexander's Practical Financial Econometrics.
