I added a new plugin for the blog which makes the blog mobile friendly. You can now browse the website using your PDA.
Okay… this is something … different!
Its been almost a decade since the c++98 standard was released and more than 2 decades since the first release of C++ made by Bjarne Stroustrup. The new highly anticipated C++0x is under development. Many new features are expected to be seen. Nevertheless, the new standard will be 100% compatible with the old c++98 standard codes. Therefore, it will be the same C++ we all know for many years, but more facility will be added to improve the language. There will be improvement on core language, but mostly on the library. There will also be more support for threading and smart pointers. However, smart pointers will be supported only through the standard library (as been said so far). Even more improvement in generic programming when developing the language which can be called ‘concept’. Developers are trying their best to include garbage collector with the C++0x compiler as compulsory rather than being compiler optional like in C++98. Many informations are available in the following URLs:
Memory is cheap, it is not a priority for developers anymore. However, developers trys their best to avoid as much as possible to reserve extra memory for their programs, sometimes it can’t be helped when performance is needed more. When more performance needed, more memory is needed. Speed and memory are vise versa. To increase speed of a program you need extra memory from the RAM. For example, using double linked list is much faster than single linked list, but double linked list reserves extra memory for the extra link each node will have. You don’t have to go through the whole list again to search for a prevoiuse node if its a single linked list. You just use the previouse link and increase the speed of the program.
Look at the following C++ code:
typename <Item class>class node
For double linked list node you have to add an extra pointer for previouse node:
typename <Item class> class node
Now its Chris Rock, this is funny, prepare to laugh
A new era of web and graphic design is about to unfold. The new version of Adobe Creative Suit 3 will be commercially available soon. Flash CS3 is about to come out with its many new features which makes me even more happy.. importing photoshop and ai files, convert the motion to an actionscript code, and ActionScript 3 ofcourse.
Now its time to buy new books which will cost me a fortune .
I’ve seen this video on TV live before, but I like to share it to all of you.
See what zoinist did to the village and how the Islamic Resistance fighters won the battle under a dense coverage off Israeli air force and army.
Congratulation to Poles, University of Warsaw who won the Association for Computer Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM ICPC) world finals this year on Tokyo. Warsaw solved 8 and won the ACM ICPC champoinship again. China got the second place (solved 7 problems) and Russia got third place after solving 6 problems. Congratulation to all those teams. Good luck for all the rest for next year.
There were 6,099 teams from around the globe, only 88 teams were qualified for finals. The main sponsore of the ACM ICPC is IBM for many years now.
I had participated on ACM ICPC Arab region, but unfortunately we lost to the 13th place. I’ll work hard this year to get a good rank in next year… I hope so!
