Whatever your programming language, whatever your platform, you probably tap into linker and loader functions all the time. But do you know how to use them to their greatest possible advantage? Only now, with the publication of Linkers & Loaders, is there an authoritative book devoted entirely to these deep-seated compile-time and run-time processes. The book begins with a detailed and comparative account of linking and loading that illustrates the differences among various compilers and operating systems. On top of this foundation, the author presents clear practical advice to help you create faster, cleaner code. You'll learn to avoid the pitfalls associated with Windows DLLs, take advantage of the space-saving, performance-improving techniques supported by many modern linkers, make the best use of the UNIX ELF library scheme, and much more. If you're serious about programming, you'll devour this unique guide to one of the field's least understood topics. Linkers & Loaders is also an ideal supplementary text for compiler and operating systems courses. *Includes a linker construction project written in Perl, with project files available for download. *Covers dynamic linking in Windows, UNIX, Linux, BeOS, and other operating systems. *Explains the Java linking model and how it figures in network applets and extensible Java code. *Helps you write more elegant and effective code, and build applications that compile, load, and run more efficiently.

ISBN: 142004057X
Release Date: 2002-09-25
Genre: Computers

The widespread use of object-oriented languages and Internet security concerns are just the beginning. Add embedded systems, multiple memory banks, highly pipelined units operating in parallel, and a host of other advances and it becomes clear that current and future computer architectures pose immense challenges to compiler designers-challenges that already exceed the capabilities of traditional compilation techniques. The Compiler Design Handbook: Optimizations and Machine Code Generation is designed to help you meet those challenges. Written by top researchers and designers from around the world, it presents detailed, up-to-date discussions on virtually all aspects of compiler optimizations and code generation. It covers a wide range of advanced topics, focusing on contemporary architectures such as VLIW, superscalar, multiprocessor, and digital signal processing. It also includes detailed presentations that highlight the different techniques required for optimizing programs written in parallel and those written in object-oriented languages. Each chapter is self-contained, treats its topic in depth, and includes a section of future research directions. Compiler design has always been a highly specialized subject with a fine blend of intricate theory and difficult implementation. Yet compilers play an increasingly vital role in the quest for improved performance. With its careful attention to the most researched, difficult, and widely discussed topics in compiler design, The Compiler Design Handbook offers a unique opportunity for designers and researchers to update their knowledge, refine their skills, and prepare for future innovations.

Genre: Computers

Analyzing how hacks are done, so as to stop them in thefuture Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing hardware orsoftware and understanding it, without having access to the sourcecode or design documents. Hackers are able to reverse engineersystems and exploit what they find with scary results. Now the goodguys can use the same tools to thwart these threats. PracticalReverse Engineering goes under the hood of reverse engineeringfor security analysts, security engineers, and system programmers,so they can learn how to use these same processes to stop hackersin their tracks. The book covers x86, x64, and ARM (the first book to cover allthree); Windows kernel-mode code rootkits and drivers; virtualmachine protection techniques; and much more.

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461446996
Release Date: 2012-07-20
Genre: Computers

"Modern Compiler Design" makes the topic of compiler design more accessible by focusing on principles and techniques of wide application. By carefully distinguishing between the essential (material that has a high chance of being useful) and the incidental (material that will be of benefit only in exceptional cases) much useful information was packed in this comprehensive volume. The student who has finished this book can expect to understand the workings of and add to a language processor for each of the modern paradigms, and be able to read the literature on how to proceed. The first provides a firm basis, the second potential for growth.

Konzeptionelle Modellierung von Plugin Systemen mit Petrinetzen

Author: Michael Duvigneau
Publisher: Logos Verlag Berlin GmbH
ISBN: 9783832525613
Release Date: 2010
Genre:

Eine in der Praxis oft eingesetzte Lösung zur Bewältigung der vielfältigen Funktionalität und Komplexität moderner Softwaresysteme besteht darin, ein Plugin-System in die Software zu integrieren. Ein Plugin-System erlaubt es Anwendern, ein relativ schlankes Kernsystem während seines Einsatzes an ihre individuellen Bedürfnisse anzupassen. Dem häufigen praktischen Einsatz des Plugin-Konzepts steht bisher eine relativ geringe Aufmerksamkeit in der Forschung gegenüber, insbesondere die Aspekte dynamischer und nebenläufig rekonfigurierbarer Plugin-Systeme werden kaum behandelt. Diese Dissertation befasst sich daher mit der Definition, Modellierung und Implementierung zentraler Konzepte von Plugin-Systemen. Die Konzepte werden aus der Untersuchung existierender Systeme (u.a. Eclipse und Mozilla) heraus abgeleitet und mit gängigen Softwareentwicklungsparadigmen und -techniken in Beziehung gesetzt. Eine grafische Modellierung mit Petrinetzen bereitet die Konzepte nachvollziehbar auf und hinterlegt sie mit einer formal fundierten, präzisen Semantik. Als Untersuchungsgegenstand für die praktische Erprobung der Konzepte dient die Petrinetz-IDE Renew (http://www.renew.de/), welche mit ihrer beständig wachsenden Funktionsfülle ein typisches Einsatzszenario für Plugin-Systeme darstellt. Die konzeptionellen Ergebnisse der Arbeit werden auf Renew übertragen und die Anwendung so von einem monolithischen zu einem dynamisch erweiterbaren System umgeformt.

A Practical Introduction to Computer Architecture

Author: Daniel Page
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781848822559
Release Date: 2009-04-21
Genre: Computers

It is a great pleasure to write a preface to this book. In my view, the content is unique in that it blends traditional teaching approaches with the use of mathematics and a mainstream Hardware Design Language (HDL) as formalisms to describe key concepts. The book keeps the “machine” separate from the “application” by strictly following a bottom-up approach: it starts with transistors and logic gates and only introduces assembly language programs once their execution by a processor is clearly de ned. Using a HDL, Verilog in this case, rather than static circuit diagrams is a big deviation from traditional books on computer architecture. Static circuit diagrams cannot be explored in a hands-on way like the corresponding Verilog model can. In order to understand why I consider this shift so important, one must consider how computer architecture, a subject that has been studied for more than 50 years, has evolved. In the pioneering days computers were constructed by hand. An entire computer could (just about) be described by drawing a circuit diagram. Initially, such d- grams consisted mostly of analogue components before later moving toward d- ital logic gates. The advent of digital electronics led to more complex cells, such as half-adders, ip- ops, and decoders being recognised as useful building blocks.
