well, just in case anyone knows, im interested in how to use a method defined in the super class inside the method that overwrites it
something like super keyword in java
if anyone knows, then thanks a lot!

If your superclass is Foo, you can call a method it in with: Foo,myMethod(someparam)

I found that obscure syntax in the PVR book
In the "Static method calls" section

i was a bit worried about if this would work with private methods, but it does.. so.. yeah, thanks a lot
just pure curiosity, you said you have used Mozart since long enought
what do you use it for?

I wrote some server side services in it - a bitcoin mining pool in the early days of bitcoin, and various support programs for it. I also used the Roads webserver.

Honestly didn't know it was used outside academic/learning environments
Chris Double

I doubt it's been used much outside of that. I wanted to see what it was like to use in something though. It's a fun language to develop with.

not sure if I would say fun haha but it sure is enlightening for understanding more about how programing langs are implemented
happy with it

What are you using it for? Is it a course of some sort?
Diva Martínez
@zombiefungus
Apr 18 2017 05:16
yeah, but the course is new so students, professor, ta.. everyone is kinda learning the language from zero
Chris Double
@doublec
Apr 18 2017 05:18
Interesting choice of language - I wonder how it got picked if no one knows it
What version of Mozart are you using?
Diva Martínez
@zombiefungus
Apr 18 2017 05:18
v2
I know, not the best choice either
we've already had issues with things that aren't implemented yet
Chris Double
@doublec
Apr 18 2017 05:19
Obscure programming language with a bleeding edge implementation. Someone likes torturing their students.
Diva Martínez
@zombiefungus
Apr 18 2017 05:19
so from now one we will be using v1.4
Chris Double
@doublec
Apr 18 2017 05:19
Yeah, I use 1.4 and 1.3.
1.4 has bugs in the distributed support so I use 1.3 to avoid that.

Apr 18 2017 05:20
haha maybe, but thats also a professor that likes to suffer herself too. Everything she asks us to do, she do its herself, in more than one way
thanks for the advice, I'll make sure she knows before the show goes on
