When Does Lexing End and Parsing Begin?

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – I had an interesting bug in my compiler: The parser would fail on blank lines. To a certain degree, this makes sense; the formal grammar of the language does not include blank lines. This is invalid input! On the other hand, every programming language ever invented, as far as I know, simply ignores ...

Let’s Build a Compiler… In F#!

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – I’m building a small compiler for a toy language which emits .NET executables, implemented in F#. Demo compilers are a dime a dozen, but there are a few things which make this project distinct: No lexer or parser generators are used. The entire compiler is written from the ground up, and is ...

On Learning Programming and Math at Coursera

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – Coursera, Udacity, MIT Open Courseware, and other such sites are useful to me because they decouple the desire to learn college-level material from the expense and regulations of earning (another) diploma. The latter isn’t compelling to me today, but the former certainly is. I’ve now ...

Strange Loop Crossword

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – I wrote a 15*15, NYT-style crossword puzzle for Strange Loop. On the NYT difficulty scale, it’s roughly a Wednesday-level puzzle. However, it was written for Strange Loop and thus does presume familiarity with functional programming and math, and has a few "inside jokes." You can find the ...

Google’s Research on Interviewing Technical Candidates

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – Yesterday’s New York Times has a good article on Google’s analysis of what works and what does not work when interviewing candidates for technical jobs. This paragraph closely matches my experience: Behavioral interviewing also works — where you’re not giving someone a hypothetical, but ...

YAML and Remote Code Execution

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – YAML’s security risks are in no way limited to Rails or Ruby. YAML documents should be treated as executable code and firewalled accordingly. Deserializing arbitrary types is user-controlled, arbitrary code execution. It’s Not Just Ruby A few weeks ago, I had a need to parse ...

Faking a placeholder Attribute for an Editable div, and Some CSS Tricks

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – HTML input elements have a placeholder attribute which you can use to show a bit of text to prompt the end user. Although you can make an editable div by using the contenteditable attribute, it will not support the placeholder attribute. I needed to do both, so I ended up reinventing the placeholder ...

Or, As We Called It Back in 1999, "Tuesday"

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – So this tweet got a lot of attention: potch @potch alias yolo=’git commit -am "DEAL WITH IT" && git push -f origin master’ I laughed at this, not because it implies some kind of reckless disregard for process and community, but because, in 1999,  at a former employer, when our ...

Spruce Media

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – So, after working for 13 years for the same employer, I’ve changed jobs. This month I joined Spruce Media; my title is "Software Engineer." ‘Course, I liked my old job, too, but Spruce Media’s offer was too good to pass up.

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – Since version 4.0, the Entity Framework has had the ability to query un-mapped data and project it onto POCOs using ad-hoc SQL. Here, for example, is how we check the current SQL Server version: internal class SqlVersionInfo { public string Edition { get; set; } ...
