Every time LabTool starts, it waits for the host computer to send it the firmware to execute.
We can use an invariant to help us reason about a piece of code that many programmers find hard to get right by any other means.
Honoring women in STEM
Possibly the worst sin of calling malloc is that it might take a very long time to complete.
We can think of an invariant as being a claim or belief about the state of program that we expect to be true each time control reaches a particular point in the program.
This week, we'll look at the helpful qualities of loop invariants.
Faced with a half-million lines of output from an oscilloscope, I turned to a spreadsheet
When monolithic systems attempt to be infinitely flexible, unfathomable complexity results and agility becomes impossible.
I often get asked to write something lean to go into an Android app.
Last week, I talked about how to write a loop invariant. I would like to continue this discussion by paraphrasing a beautifully elegant example that Dijkstra used in A Discipline of Programming.
