General Development "I've been programming professionally for about 3 years at this point, and I've noticed some interesting patterns in other programmers I've worked with. One of the key differentiators among programmers is motivation. I'm not referring to an individual's passion to simply be successful in their career, but rather the type of work they want to pursue. The thing they want to do with computers every day, the types of problems they are interested in solving."

RE[3]: Sad Truth

Member since:

What would that bug be that would imply that most C++ implementations are wrong?

Here is the GNU implementation, located in bits/stl_algobase.h (an implementation detail of the head "algorithm"):

template<typename _Tp>
inline const _Tp&
max(const _Tp& __a, const _Tp& __b)
// concept requirements
//return __a < __b ? __b : __a;
if (__a < __b)
return __b;
return __a;

And it is already sadism if you laugh about the product of someone's intellect, even if you do it behind closed doors, which would imply uncandidness, and possibly a breach of confidentiality regulations. But of course that is not my problem, so I stop lamenting about that.
