Emscripten: Running C++/LLVM Code in Browsers!

Some time ago I’ve been impressed by the Emscripten project [https://github.com/kripken/emscripten/wiki]. It is a LLVM compiler to JavaScript! It means that you can take a C/C++ project, compile it with CLang (or another LLVM code generator), use Emscripten to convert it into JavaScript, and voilà: it runs into your browser. There are plenty of examples, among them also [...]

Hate and Love of Bugs

I found a really nice post here: Opinion: Voodoo at origin I think it worth mentioning: “We all love bugs; they are like nuggets of entertainment for programmers that sit roughly between the extremes of love and hate.” and “The world origin (0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f) in my opinion is the Bermuda triangle of games, strange things [...]

Partial Class Definition and Simulated Dynamic Binding

While searching to a way to do Partial Class Definition in C++ I ended up to the definition of Simulated Dynamic Binding. See here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/140935/partial-class-definition-on-c In other words Simulated Dynamic Binding is a way to implement Partial Class Definition in C++, but I’m sure it will be helpful to solve many other problems of data [...]
