The C programming language was originally developed for and implemented on the UNIX operating system by Dennis Ritchie. C, a quite simple language, is not tied to any particular hardware or system. This makes it easy for a user to write programs that will run without any changes on practically all machines.
People compare programming languages with almost everything. Knowing about the upcoming arrival of the new “Game of Thrones” season, we decided to imagine how programming languages looked like, if they were characters of this serial.
Bad habits are hard to break and even harder if you don’t realize that what you’re doing is undermining your work. If you know but don’t care—that would be the worst. But you’re here, aren’t you?
“Should I use a
struct or a
Such is the question many C++ programmers ask themselves, or ask around to more experienced co-workers, when designing their code.
There is sometimes a cloud of misconception about what the difference between
class technically is, particularly amongst the youngest developers. And once we get to understand the technical difference, some degree of uncertainty often remains about which one to use in a given context. Sometimes developers even disagree about which is the more appropriate in their code.
Last week author wrote about the new features that Microsoft have planned for the next version of C#, version 7.1. Let’s also take a look at the things they have planned for a bit further out. Strap yourselves in, because this will be a rather long read.
At times studying algorithms is not simple, especially for those who are new in programming. We made a collection of services, aimed at helping you to sort out the way algorithms work.
In this article I’m going to discuss a problem few people think of. Computer simulation of various processes becomes more and more widespread. This technology is wonderful because it allows us to save time and materials which would be otherwise spent on senseless chemical, biological, physical and other kinds of experiments. A computer simulation model of a wing section flow may help significantly reduce the number of prototypes to be tested in a real wind tunnel. Numerical experiments are given more and more trust nowadays. However, dazzled by the triumph of computer simulation, nobody notices the problem of software complexity growth behind it. People treat computer and computer programs just as a means to obtain necessary results. I’m worried that very few know and care about the fact that software size growth leads to a non-linear growth of the number of software bugs. It’s dangerous to exploit a computer treating it just as a big calculator. So, that’s what I think – I need to share this idea with other people.
