is there a smart way to read a file to a certain
string bit by bit ? |

Similian |
which loop to use? |

rindolf |
Similian: you can read it byte by byte. |

rindolf |
Similian: do you want to read the whole
thing? |

Similian |
no |

Similian |
too big 200 MB |

simcop2387-lab |
reading bit by bit is usually not supported by
most operating systems |

rindolf |
Similian: then do you want to read one byte at a
time? |

ik |
or one line at a time? |

Similian |
guess a line would be better |

rindolf |
simcop2387-lab: it is on my rindolfOS running on
Intel 1001. |

rindolf |
Which was a 1-bit processor. |

ik |
heh |

ik |
I had a half-bit processor |

ik |
it just stored ones |

danieldg |
ik: that would be a zero-bit processor then |

ik |
no no |

danieldg |
half-bit processor stores 0's or sqrt(2)'s |

ik |
sqrt(2) may as well be 1 |

simcop2387-lab |
rindolf: a 1 bit processor would be a hell of a
thing to work with |

danieldg |
not if you can't test it unless it's one |

ik |
We're not talking about numbers, we're talking
about on and off, true and false, whatever you want to call it |

ik |
sqrt(2) is nonzero, so it's one. |

rindolf |
danieldg: not 1/sqrt(2)? |

danieldg |
hmm it would probably be that, yes |

simcop2387-lab |
my proc uses sqrt[-1]! |

ik |
may as well |

danieldg |
ik: think quantum computers. It tests true with
probability 1/sqrt(2) |

ik |
I'm not talking about a quantum computer.. |

danieldg |
well a 1/2 bit computer clearly can't be
classical |
