William and Thomas,
You both bring up probing questions about the statistical significance of this study. However, to me, your responses seem to be a tad reactionary. I think its safe to assume that there still are significant problems in the area of discrimination in this country and I'm sure there are plenty of studies out there to support this assumption. Although we hear plenty of reactionary rhetoric from the certain individuals
on the left that exaggerate the issues of race, I also find many people, including many my of friends and family, who are too quick to dismiss any suggestion that discrimination is still a problem in America

Hello,
I'm getting a degree in computer science. I was wondering if someone could tell me, what kind of careers might deal with the more theoretical aspects of computer science(ie. algorithms, discreet math etc.)
Thanks

The command is: java filename
Do not include the .java extension
and make sure you type the filename in the
same case as you saved it in. Make sure you are
typing the java command in the same directory as
the one you compiled the file in.

Dirk and M,
Thanks for your replies. They have been helpful.
Got it figured out now. Just had to do a little bit of explicit casting. Thanks again.

I have a problem
I wrote a class ResSearchTree that extends another class BinarySearchTree that resides within a package. Also in the package is a class called BinaryNode. I wrote an extension of this called ResNode. Then in ResSearchTree, I proceeded to override inherited methods to accept an instance of ResNode instead of BinaryNode.
example : ( Overridden insert method)

When I try to compile I get an error telling me that z.left and z.right can't be passed in the recursion because they are of type BinaryNode and
ResNode is required. Why doesn't this work if
ResNode extends BinaryNode? Also, why does the compiler recognize z.left and z.right as instances of BinaryNode and not ResNode
Here are the two node classes(BinaryNode and ResNode):

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Paul

Chris,
This is the book I used in my data structures course. Pretty good, and uses Java for applying the data structures.

Rick,
Another thing to consider is that at many colleges, you would have less requirements to get a masters in computer science than getting a second bachelors. I have a B.A in psychology and am getting an ms in comp. sci. I would have to about about 20 semester hours more to get a bs. The flip side is that you must maintain a 3.0 in the master's program. Something to consider.

Is there anyway of viewing the byte code(0's and 1's) of a particular Java program or any program for that matter.
Thanks,
