[12:33:57] <wjp> Colourless: why is dynamic_cast bad?
[12:34:33] <Colourless> 2 reasons
[12:35:02] <Darke> IIRC, cause if it fails at runtime it 'returns' a null pointer, and it's a runtime conversion.
[12:35:21] <Colourless> Darke: that is what you want :-)
[12:35:31] <wjp> exactly :-)
[12:35:45] <Colourless> 1) slows things down because it requires runtime type info
[12:36:01] <Colourless> 2) not supported by Embedded Visual C++ (PocketPC)
[12:36:21] <wjp> right, that last one was what I was afraid of
[12:36:36] * Darke renames it to Embedded Visual not-C++.
[12:37:01] <Darke> When are they going to get around to fixing that anyway?
[12:37:12] <Colourless> well, you see, they have :-)
[12:37:19] <Colourless> in Version 4, which isn't for Pocket PC
[12:37:38] <wjp> I _really_ don't like the idea of having to add getUCProcesss(),getAIProcess(),... functions to Process :/
[12:38:22] <Colourless> you should know, if we get rid of dynamic_casts, you should be able to supply the '-fno-rtti' switch to g++
[12:38:44] <wjp> true
[12:44:53] * Darke plays a disappearing bunny act to try and fix his fonts in X. Some are looking... odd. Back soon

[13:02:15] <wjp> wb
[13:05:49] <Darke> Thanks
[13:06:41] * Darke grumps at X or KDE or both. Silly things doing Dumb Stuff(tm) to his fixed width fonts. Seems to be doubling the space between each of them, the variable width ones are *fine* however!

[15:56:52] <exultbot> The official Pentagram homepage is at: http://pentagram.sourceforge.net/

[15:57:23] <esabb> thnks boot
[15:57:48] <esabb> pre alpha
[15:59:15] * Darke suspects there's more pentagram inside out heads then on that webpage. Or at least he hopes so anyway. *grin*
[15:59:54] <esabb> haha
[16:01:11] <esabb> do you know a efnet server ?
[16:03:47] <Darke> Nope.
[16:09:43] <-- esabb has left #pentagram ()
[16:10:59] <wjp> i'd expect efnet.org/net/com to have a list; dunno
[16:11:10] <wjp> oh, he's already gone :-)
[16:11:16] * Darke would expect so too. *grin*
[16:11:22] <Darke> Yepyep.
