Recently, a customer wrote in our User Forums that he wanted to write out the values of an array, all in one line, where the number of elements was not known at compile
It is often said that you can write bad code in any language, and I certainly can't argue with that.
One day while I was wandering the aisles of my local grocery store, a woman beckoned me over to a table and asked if I would like to "try some imported chocolate?" Neatly arrayed on the table were
Spend any time in the comp.lang.fortran newsgroup, or other places where programming languages are discussed, and you’ll soon see a new “Which is better, Fortran or C?” thread show up.
First, let me begin by saying that compiler switches are mainly targeted for specific processors (not operating systems).
People say that GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) cannot generate effective code compared to other proprietary compilers. Is it a myth or reality?
The upcoming OpenMP 4.0 will be discussed at SC12, and there wil
In the beginning, there was only one source form for FORTRAN (as it was then known) programs. Each statement was exactly 72 characters long - no more, no less.
The time when programmers did their best to minimize an application code size have gone.
“Why Should I Update GCC x86 Compiler?” or “GCC Compiler Performance on Intel® Atom™ from Version to Version”
I’ll try to figure out what is new for Intel® Atom™ architecture in new versions of GCC and how this affects performance and code size on the well-known EEMBC CoreMark* benchmark:
