"I enjoyed reading this useful overview of the techniques and challenges of implementing linkers and loaders. While most of the examples are focused on three computer architectures that are widely used today, there are also many side comments about interesting and quirky computer architectures of the past. I can tell from these war stories that the author really has been there himself and survived to tell the tale." -Guy Steele 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. Features: * 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.

Intended as a text for the undergraduate students of Computer Science and Master of Computer Applications (MCA), this comprehensive yet concise book introduces the reader to the recent Intel 32-bit architecture, its programming and associated system programs. The text begins by giving an overview of major system software and proceeds to discuss the assembly language programming with a number of examples. Topics such as assemblers, linkers and microprocessor are dealt with using Netwide Assembler (NASM)—the free platform independent assembler to generate object code. All the stages of a compiler design, its important methodologies, and the recent design techniques of text editor along with the advance data structures used for this purpose are also covered in sufficient detail. Finally, the essential features of debuggers, their design techniques and, most importantly, the hardware and software support for designing a good debugger are described. KEY FEATURES : • Gives a fairly large number of examples and problems to help students in understanding the concepts better. • The text easily correlates theory with practice. • Provides exhaustive discussion on Netwide Assembler (NASM).

The Interaction of Compilation Technology and Computer Architecture demonstrates the importance of integrating contemporary compilation technology with a supporting computer architecture to enhance system performance. The chapters in this book are written by individuals who are experts in their respective areas. Each chapter examines how best to exploit the interaction between the architecture and the compiler. The book explores three different aspects of this interaction. Chapters 2-6 examine the interaction of the compiler and the architecture at the instruction level on uniprocessors with multiple function units and highly segmented pipelines. Chapters 7 and 8 examine compilation issues for multiprocessor systems. The last two chapters discuss how programming language features can influence the design of both uniprocessor and multiprocessor systems. The Interaction of Compilation Technology and Computer Architecture demonstrates the close coupling needed between the compiler and the architecture to achieve high performance, particularly in parallel machines.

The rapidly increasing volume of information contained in relational databases places a strain on databases, performance, and maintainability: DBAs are under greater pressure than ever to optimize database structure for system performance and administration. Physical Database Design discusses the concept of how physical structures of databases affect performance, including specific examples, guidelines, and best and worst practices for a variety of DBMSs and configurations. Something as simple as improving the table index design has a profound impact on performance. Every form of relational database, such as Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), Enterprise Resource Management (ERP), Data Mining (DM), or Management Resource Planning (MRP), can be improved using the methods provided in the book. The first complete treatment on physical database design, written by the authors of the seminal, Database Modeling and Design: Logical Design, Fourth Edition Includes an introduction to the major concepts of physical database design as well as detailed examples, using methodologies and tools most popular for relational databases today: Oracle, DB2 (IBM), and SQL Server (Microsoft) Focuses on physical database design for exploiting B+tree indexing, clustered indexes, multidimensional clustering (MDC), range partitioning, shared nothing partitioning, shared disk data placement, materialized views, bitmap indexes, automated design tools, and more!
