Enough Rope to Shoot Yourself in the Foot: Rules for C and by Allen I. Holub

By Allen I. Holub

I virtually handed in this e-book as a result of a few of the unfavourable experiences.

Okay, it's no Code entire, yet this booklet is an absolute gem. i've been programming C++ for roughly 6 years now (VB clients be darned, it really is my favourite programming language, interval) and that i used to be surprised how a lot I agreed with this author's suggestion.

Yeah, I realized much from Scott Meyers' canonical "Effective" books. yet what i admire approximately this publication is that it's a no-nonsense, in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is ebook that i believe is key for these wet-behind-the-ears C++ programmers (or these whiners who declare that C++ is simply too hard).

It will most likely piss off loads of home windows programmers in addition to he's a bit of anti-Microsoft. even though, i'm basically a MFC programmer and
what he says approximately MFC (earlier variants) and home windows programming more often than not is de facto right.

This e-book is a needs to for each beginner C/C++ programmer. The skilled C/C++ programmers will most likely let you know that they be aware of all approximately this, so so much of them will supply it a cross. in spite of the fact that, as a skilled C++ programmer, i believe that they're creating a mistake. they should get this booklet at the shelf in addition.

At the very least they could mortgage it to the rookies.

Example text

8 shows the corrected code. In this example, the membar instruction ensures that all previous store operations have completed before the next store instruction is executed. 8 Using a Memory Bar to Enforce Store Ordering LOAD [&count], %A INC %A STORE %A, [&count] MEMBAR #store, #store STORE 0, [&lock] There are other types of memory barriers to enforce other orderings of load and store operations. Without these memory barriers, other memory ordering errors could occur. For example, a similar issue could occur when the lock is acquired.

A good example is the recent changes in web browser design. Google’s Chrome browser is multiprocess. The browser can use multiple tabs to display different web pages. Each tab is a separate process, so one tab failing will not bring down the entire browser. Historically, browsers have been multithreaded, so if one thread executes bad code, the whole browser crashes. Given the unconstrained nature of the Web, it seems a sensible design decision to aim for robustness rather than low sharing costs.

21. 21 Application image stored on disk The Translation of Source Code to Assembly Language An executing application is called a process. A process is a bit more than instructions and data, since it also has state. State is the set of values held in the processor registers, the address of the currently executing instruction, the values held in memory, and any other values that uniquely define what the process is doing at any moment in time. The important difference is that as a process runs, its state changes.
