Time to add to the list of Minecraft Meta Questions!
So, my question is fairly basic. When we run programs in other langs through the command line, we don't count anything but their flags. For example, take Java.
java B.java [arguments]
We wouldn't count this bit to run the program. We would count the flags though (because I don't use a programming language that uses flags, really, I'm going to use an example with rm).
rm -rf [some directory]
And we would count the
-rf bit as 4 bytes, one for the space, three for the chars.
So why do we count Minecraft starting things, such as a button? It's really just hitting the
enter key and starting the program, when you think about it. And on that line of thinking, what would you define as flags? Would a button be a standard way to start it, or a lever? How would we count that?
Please discuss. c:
