Book review

Memory as a Programming Concept in C and C++.
--------------------------------------------
Frantisek Franek
Cambridge University Press.

Low level details?
This is a book for the curious, that do not shy away from those
kind of "details" that actually are important in real world
programming.

The book starts with a description of how the compiler builds an
executable, executable/object file formats, etc.

Then we start the core subject with "Variables and objects,
pointers and addresse". Franek explains how objects are
stored in memory, big/little endianess, structure layout, and
many other things.

Later chapters include memory allocation/deallocation,
arrays, multi-dimensional arrays linked lists, chasing
memory leaks, and a chapter about threads.

All in all this is a very informative book, the style is
easy, and it explains things from the ground up.

I have written a computer programming book that uses C++. The book is for beginners in the field of computer programming, but it might give useful ideas also for more experienced programmers.

Probably a lot of you here are already old hands at Ajax, but I haven't started doing this yet. Part of the reason was that I really didn't understand where Ajax would be useful to my own site, and also that my experiences with early Javascript put me off on that a bit. "Understanding Ajax" by Joshua Eichorn helped me with both of those impediments. Complete review at http://aplawrence.com/Books/understanding_ajax.html --

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
