comment PowerShell equivalent of the C# "is" operator?
@jpmc26: Well yes, it is now, because when I search "powershell is operator" on Google, this Stackoverflow question is the first result. None of the other search results are relevant.

comment Sql Server equivalent to Oracle's CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW
Your CREATE and ALTER do different things....why? (One's dynamic, the other's not, and they have different messages.)

@olyv: Maybe I need to word my question differently...but you really should be able to see that those are different questions than mine. Your first link is talking about the optional return statement, which is not what I'm asking. As per your second link, if you scroll up, you'll see that Opal already linked to that, and I pointed out that that is a completely different question. I went ahead and changed my question title to "Why does Groovy sometimes not require an explicit return type on methods?" to prevent confusion.

@Opal: No, they're asking a totally different question. If you read carefully, you'll see that the OP for that question used def for return types. In my example, there is no return type at all, and thus my question is why this code compiles successfully.

What units are you speaking in? "10^14" is not a "rate".

@Elad Tabak: In my case I had to do it to the parent directory of the file giving me trouble, this might be what you ran into
