Would this be dependent on the manufacturer of the processor or the architecture of the processor?
I mean with Intel (as a hypothetical example, I don't know honestly if this is true or not)...

I may be a little overzealous with daemons here, but shouldn't a daemon be capable of doing this job? If you're not using a *nix machine, I would have no clue how you would go about it though...

Alright, I'm writing a C compiler "for the hell of it", and I'm using Flex/Bison as my lexer/parser combo. It works pretty well so far, but I'm rather lost when it comes to the abstract syntax tree...

OK, I am trying to help my friend on his computer that has Damn Small Linux installed on it. He's enabled APT and GNUBinutils.
So he used apt-get to install gcc, but it's version 2.95.1 (I think,...

OK, as I understand it - and I may be wrong here - in the C programming language, pointers and arrays are "unified" meaning the following code snippet should compile:

Thanks for the input everyone, I'm off to search the internet for SDRAM. A mere 256 MB more would suffice for a man as lazy as me :P
(And I know this is kind of too late to ask, but is there any...

I recently got a "new" computer (an IBM NetVista x40 with an 800 MHz Pentium III, 128 MB SDRAM, a 20 GB SCSI HD), and I would like to upgrade the RAM. However, being a fuddy-duddy with RAM (and...

This is kinda correct...according to the Design and Implementation of the BSD 4.4 OS, figure 1.2, Solaris 2 is derived from System V Release 4.
There is also a modern Unix v 6 clone called xv6...

Hmm...I'm kind of an odd guy, so I doubt anyone shares any of my hobbies.
But they are: music, physics, math, women, cooking, art, books, writing, thinking, (heterodox) economics, beer, file...

Thanks, I've heard of The Design of the UNIX Operating System, but I assumed that The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating System was essentially McKusick and Neville-Neil's The Design...

I am studying operating systems, and I have studied thus far Tanenbaum's and Woodhull's Operating Systems: Design and Implementation, McKusick and Neville-Neil's The Design and...

I was thinking with regards to "Procedural programming" and "Object Oriented Programming"...I was told by a coder far wiser than I that a process is basically characterized by having a beginning, it...

OK, I've been thinking about the pragmatic difference between a process and an object.
I'm told that a process has a beginning, it does something, then dies.
An object on the other hand lies...

OK, I am doing some work on trying to use regge calculus to generate a lattice to be used in lattice quantum field theory, and I'm simply trying to do it for 1+1 dimensions with a free particle.

I've been arguing with a friend that you can turn a Linux box's user interface into one that is indistinguishable from a Mac OS X user interface (screen shot wise); my friend's telling me...

Interesting, thanks! That really answered all of my questions, and the ones that I've been thinking about since this morning.
I greatly appreciate it!

OK, so I have been studying the I-node based file systems recently (largely the Minix file system, and the Ext2 file system); I understand that the partition is divided into block groups, and all...

Well, first of all, I'm sorry I haven't replied since I started this thread. I am at school, and I've been swamped with work.
Thanks sec_ware, but I am interested in foundational problems of...

OK, I was back home for the holidays and was fortunate to talk to a programmer working at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. We were talking about using assembly code when memory space is precious.

OK, I need help sorting out this mess I made. Long story short I wanted to make some python program that is an OO representation of C syntax. So I have a father class "statement", which has two...

I dread Halloween...I have a midterm on that morning :(

Not that it's any of my business...
Well, I would imagine what brought him to this point would be the sum of his past decisions. It's a causal relation; someone makes some decision, something...

Long story short, I decided to go to get more education (grad school) as a physicist. However, my focus is quantum gravity (always fun stuff when the adjective quantum is being used ;)) and I need to...

I thought about that too, but the reason I am asking specifically for the main() function is because I am observing the code for a toy shell (I would post the code here, but I am unsure whether it is...
