Ftp Efficiency


Using vs2005 and the new built-in Ftp functionality. I need to transfer
a gigantic amount of data (15 GB) using my app. The current way is that
I ZIP (or RAR) the data and transfer it to the server via FTP. Is
there a more efficient way to transfer data? Does FTP go as fast as the
pipe allows? (btw, the transferred data is binary, not text).

This isn't an FTP question. FTP is just a protocol that is used over
the communications layer (sockets using TCP/IP). It doesn't have a say in
how fast it sends data.

The general answer is, yes, it will send data as fast as it can.
Whether or not it is binary or text doesn't matter, since text is just bytes

Hope this helps.

Hi all, Normally, I would trust that the ANSI libraries are written to be as efficient as possible, but I have an application in which the majority of the run time is calling the acos(...) method. So now I start to wonder how that method, and others in the math.h library, are implemented. Dave

Hi, I have read somewhere that C code sometimes cannot be compiled to be as efficient as FORTRAN, eg for matrix multiplication, because a C compiler cannot make the assumptions about arrays that a FORTRAN compiler can.

dynamic_cast can be used to obtain a pointer or to obtain a reference. If the pointer form fails, then you're left with a null pointer. If the reference form fails, then an exception is thrown. Would "Feed1" or "Feed2" be preferable in the following: #include <iostream>
