Writing BSD code over beer

It may not be true that most BSD code was written over beer....as good
as the BSD (FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD) stuff is, I doubt that those
graduate students and faculty who were the pioneers of and/or for BSD,
and hence for the internet, had any champagne.....if it was anything,
it was probably beer rather than anything expensive....


While BSD is the Champagne or the rarest of the scotches....I doubt
that the graduate students and faculty who love BSD had anything but
water.....

How to write code to cancel all submitted code
Is there a command that can be given - by writing it programmatically - to stop all submitted code? I think of a similar functionality as when you click on the break button in the graphical user interface, followed by 'Cancel submitted Statements' from the Application toolbar. The use of this is typically when you have an if-then-else decision tree and if one of the conditions is true, you may want to cancel the whole program, because you have just come to a condition that should not exist because it can cause a lot of trouble for the rest of the processing of the program. - Anaconda...

How can I write highly optimized C code for reading and writing?
I am writing an I/O utility in C that accepts requests over a socket connection and persists the data that can be read by other processes. There could be data coming from hundreds of client programs simultaneously and my program has to accept and persist these data as fast as possible. I am planning to use a memory mapped file for this purpose. But do you know any other scheme which will provide a faster processing speed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

RPG on i-series
I've run into one of the strangest things I've seen with this problem. A program that should write to a log file is not. Originally I thought it might be records to force a write (FRCATIO) on the physical file. It's not. In debug when I complete the WRITE operation line of code, the record is instantly written and deleted. I can't figure out why. I do a WRKF on the file and it says records zero, deleted records 1. Any ideas? SG On Apr 23, 4:54 pm, SG <SteveGul...@gmail.com> wrote: > I've run into one of the strangest things I've seen with this > probl...

Writing more efficient code
Greetings, and happyNewYear to all. I picked up Python a few weeks ago, and have been able to parse large files and process data pretty easily, but I believe my code isn't too efficient. I'm hoping dictionaries will help out, but I'm not sure the best way to implement them. I've been using a bunch of nested if/elif/else statements to select slices (0317 & 03de) from a file, then parse the data (aa, hh, bb, d2-d9) into parameters (a = airspeed, h = heading) & flags. #sample file contents 0000007d 03 0317 aa aa aa aa aa hh hh hh bb bb 0000007e 06 03de d2 d3 d4 d5 d6 d7...

Writing portable code...
There are some people here (let's call them "regulars" for short) that are always giving lessons to people about how easy is to write portable code, etc. They always point fingers at you telling you how bad you write code. One of them (I would say the prototype of them) is Heathfield. Here is an exchange that happened just a few hours ago, that demonstrates my point: WRITING CODE IS HARD. And regulars aren't better at it than everybody else... Ed Jensen wrote > There are very few regulars here in comp.lang.c that'll admit that > writing 100% portable C code is...

Writing efficient code
I have heard that today two factors limit execution speed most often: The ability to keep everything in cache and branch predictions. I have at least some vague idea, how to help the execution environment to keep everything in the cache, i.e., when I write small code using a small amount of data and storage, it will be easier to keep it all within the cache. But is there anything I can do, when writing code, to help the processor to do an efficient (correct) branch prediction?
