The Last Line Effect
By Andrey Karpov Posted on 04/22/15 1
I have studied numbers of errors caused by using the Copy-Paste method and can assure you that programmers most often tend to make mistakes in the last fragment of a homogeneous code block. I have never seen this phenomenon described in books on programming, so I decided to write about it mysel...

Null Pointer Dereferencing Causes Undefined Behavior
By Andrey Karpov Posted on 04/20/15 6
I have unintentionally raised a large debate recently concerning the question if it is legal in C/C++ to use the &P->m_foo expression with P being a null pointer. The programmers' community divided into two camps. The first claimed with confidence that it wasn't legal while the others were...

FLOPS means total floating point operations per second, which is used in High Performance Computing. In general, Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier XE only provides metric named Cycles Per Instruction (average CPI), that is to measure performance for general programs. In this article, I use matrix1.c a...

An Internet of Things developer’s desk is a sign of a creative mind
By Dirk Roziers (Intel) Posted on 04/17/15 0
How did your desk change as a result of developing Internet of Things (IoT) projects and prototypes? I’m sure that we’ve all once played the “spot the difference” game. Sometimes there are just a few and hard to find differences. However, I bet that if you look at a picture of your desk from ...
StdAfx.h
By Andrey Karpov Posted on 04/17/15 0
This article is meant for those programmers who are only getting started with the Visual Studio environment and trying to compile their C++ projects under it.

By Aulia Faqih Posted on 04/16/15 0
When I was assigned to give a lecture on “Pengembangan Software Pendidikan” (Edu-Software Development) this semester for Chemistry Education Students, I was challenged. I had no idea how to teach Chemistry Education students how to build Android* applications at all.  In my opinion, learning to b...

Doctor, it hurts when I do this!
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 03/31/08 11
It is often said that you can write bad code in any language, and I certainly can't argue with that. I do find, though, that the worst-looking code comes from programmers who are more familiar with another programming language. One can often tell that a C programmer wrote Fortran code, or that a ...
Doctor Fortran Gets Explicit - Again!
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 01/05/12 11
Nearly 11 years ago (!) I wrote an item for the Visual Fortran Newsletter on explicit interfaces in Fortran. In recent weeks, I have had to refer quite a few customers to this article, suggesting that many Fortran programmers don't understand the role and rules of explicit interfaces. However, wh...
Doctor Fortran in "I've Come Here For An Argument, Side 2"
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 07/10/09 11
My earlier post, "I've Come Here For An Argument", was very popular with my fellow support engineers, as it provided a convenient answer to questions they frequently receive.  (For me too, which in part is why I wrote it!) But some people (cough, Ron, cough) are never satisfied, and I've been ask...

Who should be writing the software to enable Intel AMT
By JOSEPH E. (Intel) Posted on 09/18/07 11
Unlike other technologies that we produce here at Intel, AMT requires a complex ecosystem for it to provide full value to IT shops. One of the questions we keep coming up against is who should be building what in that ecosystem. We are looking to supply a platform with the belife that everybody u...

Software Translation Services = Software Localization?
By admin Posted on 03/20/12 10
In our previous blog Do’s and Don’ts in Software Development before Internationalization (i18n) a reader commented: “Thanks for sharing brilliant article with us and I would like to say about that I have been searching for “translation” on Google will yield approximately 140 million results, mak...
Smartphones and PCs
By philip-taylor (Intel) Posted on 02/18/11 10
There was recent big news that shipments of smartphones passed PCs. So while I don’t believe the PC is dying, I do believe there is a message here. The volumes were interesting too. Smart phone volumes topped 100m units for the first time, while PC units were a still respectable 92m units. So is ...
Why Parallel Performance Results Don't Matter...much
By Clay Breshears (Intel) Posted on 01/11/11 10
Let me state up front that the opinions expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of Intel Software Network or the editorial policies of the ISN Parallel Programming Community.  It's just me and my bias. I was reading a paper a few days ago that described how the author took 4 numeric c...
