Download Memory as a Programming Concept in C and C++ by Frantisek Franek PDF

By Frantisek Franek

Franek (McMaster U.) reminds us that courses aren't performed in a vacuum yet in a working laptop or computer reminiscence, an easy incontrovertible fact that adjustments the best way needs to programmers and scholars needs to take into consideration the semantics of the programming language. He starts via describing the transformation of a resource dossier to an executable module, the paintings of variables as "data containers," the dynamic allocation and de-allocation of reminiscence, services and serve as calls, one-dimensional arrays and strings, multi-dimensional arrays, periods and gadgets, associated facts constructions, leaks and their debugging, and courses in execution expressed as methods and threads. He incorporates a word list and a website to procure the lengthier examples of code.

Consequently, the onus is on the programmer - which means you, the reader - to make sure that the range is not violated. The second unpleasant consequence of having no array data type concerns passing of array arguments to functions during function calls. The C language professes to pass arguments exclusively by value, yet many a programmer has experienced (intentionally or unintentionally) a function call that somehow modified the array passed to it, as if it were passed by reference. In contrast, C++ is more flexible and gives you a choice between passing by value or by reference.

A process memory manager divides these blocks into suitable memory segments, which it allocates to its process. For the process memory manager, dynamic memory allocation includes deciding which segment to allocate (if need be, divide a bigger segment into two smaller ones) and removing it from the list of free segments. The fragmentation caused by this division is inevitable and may degrade program performance. Therefore, deallocation includes (besides adding the freed segment to the list of free segments) possibly joining the freed segment with adjacent free segments to counter somewhat the fragmentation.

How to handle memory allocation/deallocation errors. In previous chapters we have mentioned dynamic allocation of memory several times. In Chapter 2 we had quite a detailed look at the static allocation when we discussed the process of compilation, linking, loading, and execution of a program.
