  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...

  Can private method be overridden?


The private methods are not inherited by subclasses and you cannot be overridden by subclasses. According to Java Language Specification (8.4.8.3 Requirements in Overriding and Hiding), "Note that a private method cannot be hidden or overridden in the technical sense of those terms. This means that a subclass can declare a method with the same signature as a private method in one of its superclasses, and there is no requirement that the return type or throws&nb...

I’ve been smashing my head against this all day – but I finally got something working consistently and reliable, so I better damn well document it. This is as good a place as any, and hopefully it will be useful to others.I needed to make an Ajax call, so I turned to my good friend XMLHttpRequest. One wrinkle was that I needed to pass in a parameter to it… so I tried:var test = "bar"; req = new XMLHttpRequest(); req.open("GET", myURL, true); req.foo = test; req.onreadystatechange = functio...

  9 quotes that stayed with me as a developer


I find quotes inspiring, motivating or sometimes just thought provoking, so here's some of my favourites from over the years. Sometimes reading a book can have a real influence on how you write code, or how you approach a problem. Sometimes a simple quote  is enough to make me question the way I look at the code I'm writing. Or often I sit in awe about someone's so well distilled what I've known internally for ages but have never been able to enunciate.   "Design is finding t...

  Windows Security Improvements


Traenk is still upset by his recent dive into Windows security.  So much more was promised when the merger of Windows 9x and NT lines was announced, so long ago. I honestly expected better.Long ago, Microsoft announced that it would merge the then NT and Windows 9x lines of products.  Wow!  That means a file access control system, logging, different accounts and filespaces for accounts!  Finally!  We would have a secure version of Windows for our homes!And we do hav...
