A colleague of mine recently got a question from some one he’s working with on a big Java project at a company he’s stationed for the moment:
Q: if I have a Long with value 1615 and divide it with another long with value 1000, where did the numbers behind the . go ?
“als ik een long1=1615 deel door long2=1000, waar zijn mijn nummers na de comma naartoe?”
Answer by my colleague: read the SCJP book
When he told me this I really was rofling!
Unfortunatly the questionairre really ment it. I, perhaps, should have been crying instead of laughing. My condoleances, my dear colleague that you have to program together with that kind of Java ‘programmers’
