WikiGuide Welcome[edit]

Hello Nomen4Omen. Welcome to the English version of Wikipedia
Thank you for your participation in this project. We hope that you will stay to contribute and that you will find the collaboration process enjoyable.
Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that started in 2001 and is free for all to use and edit under certain guidelines and principles that all users should understand and adhere to.
These principles and guidelines are listed below. Click on the link next to the images for more information.

This is your Talk page where you can receive messages from other Wikipedians and discuss things with them. At the end of your messages you must put your signature by signing with four ~~~~ (just as I have done) or by pressing the button in the editor bar as shown here in the picture. By the way, you don't need to sign edits that you make in the articles themselves as those messages will be deleted. Another valuable page that may provide information and assistance is User:Persian Poet Gal/"How-To" Guide to Wikipedia. My name is Buster7. If you have any questions or face any initial hurdles, feel free to contact me on my talk page and I will do what I can to assist or give you guidance and contact information. Good Luck editing!

Your table in Endianness[edit]

I understand endianness pretty well. As a student, I figured out what was going on when a BASIC program under RSTS on a PDP-11 showed me one thing, but Fortran programs would show the other. These days, I have a little bit on endianness that's included when I teach use of a debugger or a disk hex editor. I even added some to the current article, including mention of the bizarre "mixed endian" nature of the 1401. I am sorry to say that your table, massive amount of work that it obviously was, leaves me completely confused as to what it's trying to tell me. I believe the reason is that the representations of the actual data being talked about are lost in annotations. Perhaps some font size changes would help to distinguish the annotations and legends from the data. Jeh (talk) 16:49, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

I am really sorry about that. The foregoing sections handle the difference how a data item is recorded in memory in Big-Endian vs. Little-Endian systems. The table tries to tell the other way around: If you read 2 recorded (dumped) bytes, how are they to be interpreted. The upper 3 rows only give orientation about data type and offsets, the latter as byte and bit offsets. Rows 4 and 5 handle Big-Endian and Rows 6 to 9 Little-Endian. Columns 2 to 4 show the data in the piece of hexdump. I have made some changes in the table. --Nomen4Omen (talk) 19:20, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

tree traversal[edit]

The article tree traversal is horrible, but this does not mean it is OK to increase the mess.

Wikipedia does not accept self-published references; see WP:RS.

There is other pseudocode, but I it is mostly for standard descriptions found in books. If something is not from books, it must be deleted.

But there is larger problem with the addition: its questionable notability. Any algorithm may be implemented in numerous ways. Wikipedia is encyclopedia, not FSF repository. It gives basic descriptions of ideas of algortihms. The arguments from your addition (callbacks are cumbersome, tree traversed only in full) are about minor implementation tweaks, contributing nothing new to the idea of the algorithms themselves. If there is any significant algorithmic novelty, I didn't see it, however I admit I may be mistaken.

Finally, article content must be discussed in article talk pages, where other editors may see the discussion and join it, not in user talk pages. - üser:Altenmann >t 15:33, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Once again, please do not add unreferenced text to wikipedia. It is against the rules and it will be always deleted. - üser:Altenmann >t 20:34, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
