  Which one has a worse reputation, JavaScript or PHP?


There has a been a lot of criticism of PHP over being a badly designed programming language. JavaScript seems quite a similar language with loose-typing and flexible array declarations/memory management, but is widely adopted by industry leaders such as Google. Google even has a JavaScript style guide. Many people think that PHP has a worse reputation than JavaScript. Carlos Ribeiro gave his analysis on a high level which doesn't touch the language syntax. Attributing JavaScript success to it be...

  memcpy() vs memmove() in C


memcpy() copies the bytes of data between memory blocks. If the block of memory overlaps, the function might not work properly. Use memmove() to deal with overlapping memory blocks. memmove() is very much like memcpy() but very flexible as it handles overlapping of memory blocks. example : char msg[50] = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"; char temp[50]; main() { strcpy(temp, msg); printf("Original Msg = %s\n",temp); memcpy(temp+4, temp+16, 10); printf...

  Application vs Database Programming


A few years ago, I had a problem.  A database routine for processing bulk payments for LedgerSMB that was humming along in my test cases was failing when tested under load with real data prior to implementation.  Some testing showed that while it ran fine with small numbers of inputs, it eventually slowed way down as the number of inputs rose.  Andrew Sullivan, who was also on the project through a different company, suggested it was something called a "cache miss" because I...
