  bash network interface


Some of us may have seen /dev/tcp/<host>/<port> before, is this a special file system implemented in some BSD kernel? Because there is no /dev/tcp in Linux. Actually, this one is implemented in bash. We no need to rely on wget,nc to do network connection. It's very easy to use this interface: bash-4.2$ cat </dev/tcp/time.nist.gov/13 56188 12-09-18 15:34:26 50 0 0 733.5 UTC(NIST) * bash-4.2$ exec 3<>/dev/tcp/www.w3.org/80 bash-4.2$ echo -e "GET / HTTP/1.0\n\n" >&3 b...

  Code Optimization Techniques for Graphics Processing Units


Books on parallel programming theory often talk about such weird beasts like the PRAM model, a hypothetical hardware that would provide the programmer with a number of processors that is proportional to the input size of the problem at hand. Modern general purpose computers afford only a few processing units; four is currently a reasonable number. This limitation makes the development of highly parallel applications quite difficult to the average computer user. However, the low cost and th...
