The Lee-Enfield Rifle (Weapon, Volume 17) by Martin Pegler

By Martin Pegler

The Lee-Enfield is likely one of the twentieth century's such a lot recognisable and longest-serving army rifles. It was once followed through the British military in 1895 and in basic terms changed by way of the L1A1 SLR in 1957. It observed wrestle from the Boer battle onwards, and millions are nonetheless in use this day; it truly is expected that 17 million were produced. Soldier's reminiscences of the rifle are overwhelmingly affectionate (it used to be often called the Smellie); this day it is still a truly well known aim rifle for aggressive capturing, and smooth copies are being synthetic to fulfill call for. that includes first-hand money owed, brand-new full-colour art and close-up images, this is often the tale of the Lee-Enfield, the leading edge, trustworthy and long-lived rifle that built British and different forces during the global wars and beyond.

The STEREO Mission by C.T. Russell

By C.T. Russell

C. T. Russell initially released within the magazine area technology studies, quantity 136, Nos 1–4. DOI: 10. 1007/s11214-008-9344-1 © Springer Science+Business Media B. V. 2008 The Sun-Earth Connection is now an accredited truth. It has a signi cant influence on our day-by-day lives, and its underpinnings are being pursued vigorously with missions corresponding to the sunlight TErrestrial family Observatory, generally known as STEREO. This was once no longer continually so. It was once no longer until eventually the center of the 19th century that Edward Sabine attached the 11-year geomagnetic cycle with Heinrich Schwabe’s deduction of a like periodicity within the sunspot list. The clincher for plenty of used to be Richard Carrington’s sighting of an outstanding whi- gentle are at the solar, on September 1, 1859, through a very good geomagnetic typhoon 18 hours later. yet used to be the Sun-Earth Connection signi cant to terrestrial denizens? might be in 1859 it used to be now not, yet a century later it turned so. starting within the 1930’s, as electric powergrids grew in dimension, powercompanies started to detect that they sometimes had energy blackouts in periods of excessive geomagnetic task. This correlation didn't seem to be suf ciently signi cant to carry to the eye of the general public yet throughout the foreign Geophysical yr (IGY), whilst geomagnetic task used to be being scrutinized intensely, the prevalence of a giant North American strength blackout in the course of an excellent magnetic typhoon used to be very unlikely to disregard.

LLVM Cookbook by Mayur Pandey, Suyog Sarda

By Mayur Pandey, Suyog Sarda

Over eighty enticing recipes that can assist you construct a compiler frontend, optimizer, and code generator utilizing LLVM
About This Book

Write a frontend for any language to generate LLVM IR
Create optimization passes to optimize the IR code utilizing LLVM move Infrastructure and move Manager
layout and enforce constructions for highly-optimized compilers utilizing LLVM, via designated step by step recipes

Who This ebook Is For

The publication is for compiler programmers who're accustomed to recommendations of compilers and need to take pleasure in figuring out, exploring, and utilizing LLVM infrastructure in a significant method of their work.

This e-book is additionally for programmers who're in some way focused on compiler tasks yet are usually concerned with improvement stages the place they write millions of traces of code. With wisdom of ways compilers paintings, they are going to be in a position to code in an optimum means and increase functionality with fresh code.
What you'll Learn

advent to LLVM modular layout and LLVM tools
Write a frontend for a language
upload JIT aid and use frontends for various languages
find out about the LLVM cross infrastructure and the LLVM move Manager
Create analyses and remodel optimization passes
construct a LLVM TOY backend from scratch
Optimize the code at SelectionDAG point and allocate registers to variables

In Detail

LLVM is a compiler framework with libraries that offers a latest source-and target-independent optimizer, in addition to a code generator.

This ebook not just explains the potent use of the compiler infrastructure that LLVM offers, but additionally is helping you enforce it in a single of your initiatives. you begin with an easy activity to get you up-and-running with LLVM, by means of studying the method of writing a frontend for a language, consisting of writing a lexer, a parser, and producing IR code. you are going to then see how you can enforce optimizations at diverse degrees, generate target-independent code, after which map this generated code to a backend. eventually, you'll look at the functionalities that the LLVM infrastructure presents, corresponding to exception dealing with, LLVM software Passes, utilizing sanitizers, the rubbish collector, and the way we will be able to use those in our tasks.
