    for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
    for(int j=2;j<10;j++)
    int key=A[j];
    int k=j-1;
    while(k>0 && A[k]>key);

  3. Can u guy tell us what's ur code supposed 2 accomplish? You called it
    "insertion code". "Insertion" where?

    IOW, you tell us what it's supposed to do, what it does and how it
    differs from what's needed, and we could try to help you correct the
    problem. Right now I can see at least one problem with your code: it
    doesn't output any *result*.

    When I was young, we had to compare all those sort algorithms:
    bubble sort, heap sort, insertation sort, quick sort, ....

    Change "k>0" to "k >= 0", otherwise you won't change the first element.
    Change this to A[k+1]=key; as you're now one below the element you copied. For example, if the list was already in order, you wouldn't want to change anything, but k is one less than j.
    Alternatively, if you don't want k to go negative, you can alter different bits of the program instead.

    I think Juha just wants the same thing as I do: don't hide the std
    namespace unless you have really good reasons to[1]. The character
    count argument is IMHO a red herring.


    [1] I never find such reasons. I do 'using std::string' or something
    rather often, but I never see a need to pull in all of it.

    That's IME not at all what code looks like when you don't hide 'std',
    so I wonder if you ever tried it?

    /Sometimes/ I get std clutter, but it tends to be std::string or
    std::vector, and then I just locally pull those ones in. I don't want
    std::find() or std::copy() to be called just find() or copy().

    I suppose that with C++11 (which I don't use yet) I could have reduced
    the clutter as much or more by using 'auto' -- it's often something
    like std::vector<std::string>::const_iterator which annoys me.

    I'm happy to be using C++ 2014. Hope you can switch
    to a newer version soon. And I wonder if 2017 C++ will
    have modules?

    I usually typedef the container template instantiations with a type
    name that better matches its local purpose:

    class Person
    typedef std::vector<std::string> Names;
    // ...

    With some hugely configurable masterpieces among templates
    ('boost::multiindex::multi_index_container' anyone?) there are just no
    sane ways to behave otherwise; with simple collections it also helps me
    to postpone detail considerations ('list' or 'set' or 'deque' or 'vector'?)
    into later stages and just take 'std::vector' as default "collection".
    With or without 'auto' available I may want still to use
    'Person::Names::const_iterator' for clarity sometimes. It is sometimes clear
    (as some standalone variable) and sometimes clutter (like as cycle iterator).

  11. How many times do we need to step on that rake, FCOL? Readability is in
    the eye of the beholder. You can't expect everybody to subscribe to
    your own understanding what improves it or destroys it. Honestly, how
    much do we *really* have to continue having those religious debates here?

    True, you can not ... but you can explain how you see it and perhaps
    convince /someone/. Juha explained very carefully what /he/ gets out
    from having std:: in his code.

    (Perhaps I'm biased because I often agree with him, not only about
    /what/ to do but also the rationale.)
    Forever, I'm afraid. It's boring seeing the same things pop up over
    and over again, but I think it's basically healthy.

    Not as long as you don't start writing "::std::" :)
    Ian Collins, Apr 28, 2014
  14. I believe your honest impression, Juha. And considering that you are
    aware of what always happens, why insist on doing it? Are there no
    other issues that might be discussed with a more definite and positive
