In-Memory Processing

Hello,

For a job interview, I need to be familiar with 'In-Memory Processing',
but I can't find any resources on it. I have no idea with it is, but I
assume it is something special, and any pointers could be very helpful.

Thanks,
Sia

Trick question?

I don't think there are any useful programs that don't process stuff in
memory....

IMO this has no specific meaning and needs to be taken literally.
I would suggest studying data structures and algorithms.
Which aspects will depend on the company's application domain.

I can only guess, but they usually mean, perform an operation on a data
structure without allocating new memory. Or to be more precise, without
allocating memory that its size it depended with the size of the input.
For example, you get an array of size N and you should sort it without
allocating a new array of size N (a temporary buffer of fixed size is
allowed).

Thanks for the input. It gives me some idea to talk about it if it came
up.

Sia

I started using PHP's object-oriented stuff a little while ago, which has mostly been a joy. However, I've noticed that they don't seem to echo as I would like. Eg: $this->field = 255; $this->key = 'id'; echo "$this->key is $this->field"; // prints "id is Array" // Thus I am forced to do this $keyval = $this->field;

Howdy I've been given conflicting answers about search engines picking up urls like: http://mysite.com/index.php?var1=1&var2=2&var3=3 Do search engines pick up these urls? I've been considering converting a site of mine to PHP-Nuke, but if the individual modules aren't picked up in search engines I'm not going to do it. Thanks phpKid
