They are everything but a niche.
Their products may have a lot of users, but I can't say I've seen all that many job postings.
Not really, as memory allocation is performance wise very cheap
Unless your VM can't allocate things to two parallel tasks simultaneously, causing allocation to effectively sequentialize your code.
I defy you to write a compiler or kernel without such knowledge.
I had such knowledge when I first wrote a compiler, but I don't recall actually using it anywhere. What did I miss?
So tech companies don't want to be in high crime locations in the middle of neighborhoods that most of their workers wouldn't want to live or send their kids to school?
TIL Roxbury is the entirety of downtown Boston.
I do remember roughly what a language can do
Then it seems you do remember something about the language's semantics. Maybe it's the details of syntax you're forgetting?
I have never seen a compiler that does that, and I seriously doubt if is really common.
I'm a bit depressed to find a
I once wrote an overflow check wrong -- I tried to write an `if' that would check whether the preceding operation on signed integers had overflowed. Overflow on signed integers is undefined behavior, so once it happens, it is legal for the program to do anything. "Anything" includes updating the variable with the overflowed value and then skipping the condition check, which is what GCC's output code did.
The jury heard the testimony from all the witnesses. They saw and heard all the evidence. THEN they wanted to punish Toyota. Yes? So what's wrong with that?
The jury's function is not to mete out punishment. It is to determine whether the defendant committed the wrongdoing they are accused of. When a juror expresses desire to punish, it makes me wonder whether the verdict was motivated by epistemologically sound consideration or by that desire.
Maybe the problem then is that the business radio systems are (it would seem from the above) much more expensive than ham gear?
I haven't looked into pricing of business band radios, but it is fairly common for hams to get business radios and modify them for use on amateur bands. I suspect the difference would come out in licensing.
