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 myself. I called it the "last line effect".
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 as sure saying that it was. Both parties gave various arguments and links, and it occurred to me at some point that I had to make things clear. For that purpose, I contacted Microsoft MVP experts and Visual C++ Microsoft development team communicating through a closed mailing list.
This weekend I got to attend a very special event at my Alma Mater: UMASS, Amherst’s own HackUMASS! In it’s second year, HackUMASS scaled up its efforts massively, growing from 100 students to 500 students including a heap of east coast sponsors.
We are excited to announce the next release of the Intel® OpenMP* Runtime Library at openmprtl.org. This release aligns with Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2015 Composer Edition Update 4.
- Debugger support interface added to the OSS library
- Fixed implementation of task 'final' clause
- Fixed a crash that occurred when task dependence was used
- Fixed hierarchical barrier in oversubscription case
Frequently Asked Questions on SDN, NFV, DPDK and the Intel® Open Network Platform Server
Why are SDN and NFV so important?
Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) are emerging as an alternative to traditional network design because they address many of the drawbacks of traditional hardware based networks. SDN and NFV offer four primary benefits:
I am starting to dig into the runtime source code and I am wondering if there is any information available about its general organization/design. I am mostly interested in the "task"-related topics, for instance how are inter-task dependencies detected, which scheduling algorithms are implemented, and such things.
Thanks in advance.
