Threads and memory model for C/C++
Topic: Computers 8:50 pm EST, Nov  2, 2005

We have begun an effort to clarify the meaning of multi-threaded C programs, and to provide some standard thread-related APIs where those are currently missing. Here we list some of the documents relevant to that effort.

Hans Boehm gave a talk about this stuff at work today. The main takeaway I got was that the compiler, optimizing for single-threaded execution, can reorder instructions in such a way as to create race conditions when executed concurrently. What a mess...

Start-up plans new energy-efficient processor
Topic: Computers 2:23 pm EDT, Oct 24, 2005

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based start-up this week is set to unveil its plans for a microprocessor based around the Power architecture--the same architecture behind chips in IBM servers and current Macs--that consumes only a fraction of the energy of existing chips.

Looks like a bunch of old Alpha and ARM guys from DEC have gotten back together...

The hidden currents powering Intel's next gen chips
Topic: Computers 11:20 am EDT, Aug 18, 2005

AT NEXT WEEK'S Intel developer forum, the firm is due to announce a next generation x86 processor core. The current speculation is this new core is going too be based on one of the existing Pentium M cores. I think it’s going to be something completely different.

I'm not entirely sure this guy knows what he's talking about but it gives one an idea, at least, about what Intel might be up to.

About the Stratellite

] A Stratellite%u2122 is a high-altitude airship that when
] in place in the stratosphere will provide a stationary
] platform for transmitting various types of wireless
] communications services currently transmitted from cell
] towers and satellites. It is not a balloon or a blimp. It
] is a high-altitude airship.

Apparently, this is getting "close" to being able to be deployed... they're working on FAA approval right now, apparently.

GCC: SSA for Trees
Topic: Computers 2:31 pm EST, Feb 10, 2005

] The goal of this project is to build an optimization
] framework for trees based on the Static Single Assignment
] (SSA) form [1]. The implementation currently lives in the
] tree-ssa-20020619-branch branch.

Some folks have implemented a new intermediate representation to
enable a bunch of optimizations; its now been merged in GCC 4.

String Library Comparison
Topic: Computers 3:16 pm EST, Jan 29, 2005

The standard C string library is horribly inadequate for almost
all applications. They aren't 8-bit clean, they aren't counted (overflows), in general, you have to do a lot of needless work yourself.

A better one goes a long way towards civilizing
C. I wish ANSI/ISO would recognize this and standardize something.

glib doesn't have equivalents of index(), strstr(), etc ...
WTF not?!
