* Algorithms v. "The Real World"
- One of the CodeRanch Staff met with some 'real world' resistance when using the algorithms he learned as a CS student and asks whether that's normal.
* Developing a queuing mechanism
- The why, what, and how are thoroughly explored in this discussion about a creating a high throughput queue.
* Pass by value vs pass by reference
- It's a feature that's as old as the hills but it still makes for a good discussion.
