Re: Microsoft to release SQL server for Irix

So this could be a play for embedded and small systems. I would personally bet against that. The only thing that MSSQL brings to that space is cost. Why would anyone go out of their way to pay a licensing fee to microsoft, when already working alternatives are free? I am going to be most probably w...

Re: Microsoft to release SQL server for Irix

not what i meant at all. i meant a system designed for professional use. That distinction to me appears irrelevant, honestly. There's plenty of "professional" work getting done on iPads on any given day. Or a more serious example being the IBM Blue Genes, undoubtedly supercomputers, their...

Re: Microsoft to release SQL server for Irix

Well, the sybase-based (pun intended) MS SQL server product was over 20 years ago, it predates NT even. It has been rewritten from scratch since, at least according to the former boss of that business unit @ Microsoft. I don't understand for whom Microsoft is targeting this product. The main value p...

Re: Microsoft to release SQL server for Irix

HPC != single system image. A 200000000 iPad cluster would count perfectly as an HPC system if it's used for doing computational work.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Don't you like Berkeley RISC legacy (SPARC) ? :D Do you prefer the Stanford University solution (MIPS) ? The point is that even the principal people involved with SPARC were forced to recognized that register windows were a bad idea, eventually. Anybody doing an out-of-order SPARC has at some point...

Register windows? In the XXI century? After all we know about architecture? Why dear lord, Why?

Re: archive.org -- SGI Software Library

LOL. I'm starting to get why a colleague recently added systemd to the list of interview items/questions he uses to filter out candidates for IT positions.

Re: code comment hilarity

I imagine there is a forum, somewhere else, where physicists and mathematicians put up equations written by software "engineers" to laugh out loud at them.

Re: Compiling xlC with C++11 support

Sounds like an issue with the standard library? Are you not including the right header? stoi is a function introduced with C++11. I don't know the options the OP is passing to the compiler. But I believe xlC needs the "–qlanglvl=extc1x" flag to activate the C++11 features in the compiler....

gcc app.c -o app

what the Hell do you need to know about "linking" ?


That's what I've been trying to tell you; that if you straight compile the code you provide, it does not segfault, it loops.

Re: Hell actually exists, proofs of existence, the computer science is not a safe place, Gcc attempts your soul

You want gcc to stop someone from being a naughty programmer. I get it. Again. I'm not getting the full picture of your issue, because I don't know what you're linking against. But as it stands, the expected behaviour, by gcc, for the code you presented is to produce something which is going to infi...

Re: Hell actually exists, proofs of existence, the computer science is not a safe place, Gcc attempts your soul

Your tool is most definitively an issue if it generates code that seg faults when it normally shouldn't. You're also using void/int dangerously in your code. In any case, the infinite loop behavior is expected, regardless of target arch, since you don't explicitly exit from that function and the com...

Re: Hell actually exists, proofs of existence, the computer science is not a safe place, Gcc attempts your soul

I have no idea what's going on in your make file and what it is linking to, but that code should run just fine; it should get stuck in an infinite loop not seg fault.

Re: Hell actually exists, proofs of existence, the computer science is not a safe place, Gcc attempts your soul

I don't really understand your point. In the examples you've provided, the algorithmic causality of the code seems to be unaffected. No?
