Poltergeist

Post by MSpagni »

I told you I saw some odd things.
Well, maybe now I have something that seems "solid" (more or less :roll: ).
The algorithm is "patience"

I'm trying to understand what is wrong with the highlighted... and I can't. Could you elaborate?

Gosh, I read misaligning the lines!
Sure it seems "solid": it is, and it's also right! :oops:

Forget it all, sorry.
It looked a bit too easy compared to the evanescent troubles I saw a couple of versions ago.
Maybe they are gone... or maybe it was another mine mishap! :roll:

:evil: The usual Heisenbug! :evil:
Since I already seemed too many times a visionary, I took some screenshots with the various algorithms.
And since the maximum number of attachements is 3 but I have 5 screenshots, I put 2 of them in the following message.

Thanks. Would be nice to see some explanations, like "in image 1 here's what's wrong; ...". Also, please provide your files and options, either here or via email.

Well, do you think that "Invia232(TempBuffer,6)" is equal to "Invia232(temp_buf,6);"?
It seems it depends on the algorithm... and sometimes even on I-don't-know-what (see Minimal or Myers)!

And "void Monitor_Serial_SendSampledCurrentValue(void){" is equal
to "void Monitor_Serial_SendSampledCurrentValue(void){" or not?
Once again, it depends on the algorithm.
Hystogram, Myers, Patience and Minimal say no! :roll:

The only one completely correct is Classic.

Please take note of the manual alignment of line 460 with line 432.

To not be misunderstood: now I'm unable to reproduce none of them! :twisted:

Maybe still send your files, we could be more lucky in reproducing this.

Thanks for the files but, predictably, cannot reproduce so far.
