A C++ Virtual Machine?

A C++ Virtual Machine?

It was a question of time until a C++ virtual machine would appear. Implementing a Java-style virtual machine for C++ is a trivial task. The problem is that such a virtual machine would suffer from the well-known ailments of Java: bloated and inherently slow code. At present, there are at least three independent projects that attempt to define a uniform binary interface for C++. One of these projects will enable you to link code that was compiled by different compilers into a single executable file. A more interesting project is targeted at the Internet. The “Internet C++ Virtual Machine” (ICVM) project defines a universal 32-bit virtual machine for C++ that will enable you to run C++ code virtually on every target machine, regardless of the underlying OS and hardware. ICVM promises both high performance and portability. You can read more about ICVM here: http://sr9.xoom.com/icvmcpp/

Data Observability Explained

Data is the lifeblood of any successful business, as it is the driving force behind critical decision-making, insight generation, and strategic development. However, due to its intricate nature, ensuring the

What is Metadata?

What is metadata? Well, It’s an odd concept to wrap your head around. Metadata is essentially the secondary layer of data that tracks details about the “regular” data. The regular
