  1. Program Design Language

    Orphan date February 2009 Program Design Language or PDL, for short is a method for designing and documenting methods and procedures in software. It is related to pseudocode , but unlike pseudocode, it is written in plain language without any terms that could suggest the use of any programming language or library. PDL was originally developed by the company Caine, Farber & Gordon and has been modified substantially since they published their initial paper on it in 1975. It has been described in some detail by Steve McConnell in his book Code Complete .

  1. Pidgin code

    unreferenced date June 2009 In computer programming , pidgin code is a mixture of several programming language s in the same program, or pseudocode that is a mixture of a programming language with natural language descriptions. Hence the name the mixture is a programming language analogy to a pidgin in natural language s. In numerical computation , mathematical style pseudocode is sometimes called pidgin code , for example pidgin ALGOL the origin of the concept , pidgin Fortran , pidgin BASIC , pidgin Pascal programming language Pascal , and pidgin C programming language C . It is a compact and often informal notation that blends syntax taken from a conventional programming language with mathematical notation , typically using set theory and matrix mathematics matrix operations, and perhaps also natural language descriptions. It can be understood by a wide range of mathematically trained people, and is used as a way to describe algorithm s where the control structure is made explicit at a rather high level of detail, while some data structures are still left at an abstract level, independent of any specific programming language. Normally non ASCII typesetting is used for the mathematical equations, for example by means of TeX or MathML markup, or proprietary Formula editor formats.

  1. Wrapping (graphics)

    About the technique used in 3D graphics wrapping in word processing Word wrap Unreferenced date December 2009 In computer graphics, wrapping is the process of limiting a position to an area. A good example of wrapping is wallpaper , a single pattern repeated indefinitely over a wall . Wrapping is used in 3D computer graphics to repeat a Texture mapping texture over a polygon , eliminating the need for large textures or multiple polygons. To wrap a position x to an area of width w , calculate the value math x equiv x pmod w math . Implementation For computational purposes the wrapped value x of x can be expressed as math x x lfloor x x min x max x min rfloor x max x min math where math x max math is the highest value in the range, and math x min math is the lowest value in the range. Pseudocode for wrapping of a value to a range other than 0 1 is function wrap X, Min, Max Real Real X X Int X Min Max Min Max Min if X 0 then This corrects the problem caused by using Int instead of Floor X X Max Min return X Pseudocode for wrapping of a value to a range of 0 1 is function wrap X Real Real X X Int X if X 0 then X X 1 return X Pseudocode for wrapping of a value to a range of 0 1 without branching is, function wrap X Real Real return X mod 1.0 1.0 mod 1.0 See also Clamping graphics Clamping DEFAULTSORT Wrapping Graphics Category Computer graphics algorithms ...   more details

  1. Pearson hashing

    Pearson hashing ref name acmref Citation title Fast Hashing of Variable Length Text Strings first Peter K. last Pearson journal Communications of the ACM volume 33 issue 6 pages 677 date June 1990 url http citation.cfm?id 78978 issn doi 10.1145 78973.78978 ref is a hash function designed for fast execution on processors with 8 bit processor register register s. Given an input consisting of any number of bytes, it produces as output a single byte that is strongly dependent ref name acmref on every byte of the input. Its implementation requires only a few instructions, plus a 256 byte lookup table containing a permutation of the values 0 through 255. This hash function is a CBC MAC that uses an 8 bit random block cipher implemented via the permutation table. An 8 bit block cipher has negligible cryptographic security, so the Pearson hash function is not cryptographically strong but it offers these benefits It is extremely simple. It executes quickly on resource limited processors. There is no simple class of inputs for which hash collision collision s identical outputs are especially likely. Given a small, privileged set of inputs e.g., reserved word s for a compiler , the permutation table can be adjusted so that those inputs yield distinct hash values, producing what is called a perfect hash function . The algorithm can be described by the following pseudocode , which computes the hash of message  C using the permutation table  T code lang pseudo h 0 for each c in C loop index h xor c h T index end loop return h code References references Category Error detection and correction Category Hash functions Category Articles with example pseudocode ...   more details

  1. MTD-f

    MTD f , an abbreviation of MTD n,f Memory enhanced Test Driver with node n and value f is a minimax search algorithm, an alternative to the alpha beta pruning algorithm. Zero Window Searches MTD f efficiently does only zero window alpha beta searches, with a good bound variable beta . In Negascout , AlphaBeta is called with a wide search window, as in AlphaBeta root, INFINITY, INFINITY, depth , so the return value lies between the value of alpha and beta in one call. In MTD f , AlphaBeta fails high or low, returning a lower bound or an upper bound on the minimax value, respectively. Zero window calls cause more cutoffs, but return less information only a bound on the minimax value. To find the minimax value, MTD f calls AlphaBeta a number of times, converging towards it and eventually finding the exact value. A transposition table stores and retrieves the previously searched portions of the tree in memory to reduce the overhead of re exploring parts of the search tree. Pseudocode function MTDF root, f, d g f upperBound lowerBound while lowerBound upperBound if g lowerBound then g 1 else g g AlphaBetaWithMemory root, 1, , d if g then upperBound g else lowerBound g return g Performance Implementations of the MTD f algorithm have been proven to be more efficient search fewer nodes than other search algorithms e.g. Negascout in games such as chess http citation.cfm?id 240998&coll GUIDE&dl GUIDE&CFID 50049687&CFTOKEN 16181537 . However, in practice, MTD f has some issues such as heavy dependence on the transposition table , search instability, and many others. Therefore, most modern chess engine s still implement Negascout, which is considered by many chess programmers to be the best search algorithm in practice.

  1. Promise (computing)

    Multiple issues wikify March 2012 orphan February 2009 unreferenced July 2008 See also Lazy evaluation A promise is the final item in a stream computing Stream . A Stream itself is a way to shorten a very long sequence into a short one, and request only the items needed at the moment. For example, in pseudocode, assuming intseq reports an integer sequence up to its input intseq 5 1, 2, 3, 4 For long computations, like intseq 10000 , a program may not immediately need a list containing 10,000 elements. Upon a closer look at intseq, it may look something like this define intseq value, this 1 if this value return return flatten this, intseq value, this 1 If not all integers were needed immediately, it would be more efficient to return a promise instead. A stream intseq may look like this in pseudocode define stream intseq value, this if this value return return flatten this, end , way to invoke stream intseq value, this 1 In this way, a way to invoke generated by way to invoke the next operation is returned after a custom value that defines the end of data input in this case, end . When needed, the caller can use the handle generated by way to invoke to invoke the next result. This will be added to the data part of the list, and the next invocation will be stored. For example, for stream intseq 5 , through all invocations 1, end , way to invoke stream intseq 5, 2 1, 2, end , way to invoke stream intseq 5, 3 1, 2, 3, end , way to invoke stream intseq 5, 4 1, 2, 3, 4, end , way to invoke stream intseq 5, 5 1, 2, 3, 4 Notice the one extra invocation of stream intseq, that is determined afterward to be empty. This is normal, as it happens to intseq as well. Category Compiler optimizations Category Evaluation strategy ...   more details

  1. Trellis quantization

    Trellis quantization is an algorithm that can improve data compression in Discrete cosine transform DCT based encoding methods. It is used to optimize residual Discrete cosine transform DCT coefficients after Motion compensation Motion estimation motion estimation in lossy compression lossy video compression encoders such as Xvid and x264 . Trellis quantization reduces the size of some DCT coefficients while recovering others to take their place. This process can increase quality because coefficients chosen by Trellis have the lowest Rate distortion rate distortion ratio. Trellis quantization effectively finds the optimal quantization for each block to maximize the PSNR relative to bitrate . It has varying effectiveness depending on the input data and compression method.

  1. NESL

    NESL is a parallel programming language developed at Carnegie Mellon by the SCandAL project and released in 1993. It integrates various ideas from parallel algorithm s, and functional programming functional programming and array programming languages. The most important new ideas behind NESL are Nested data parallelism this feature offers the benefits of data parallelism, concise code that is easy to understand and debug, while being well suited for irregular algorithms, such as algorithms on trees, graphs or sparse matrices. A language based performance model this gives a formal way to calculate the work and depth of a program. These measures can be related to running time on parallel machines. The main design guideline for NESL was to make parallel programming easy and portable. Algorithms are typically significantly more concise in NESL than in most other parallel programming languages, and the code closely resembles high level pseudocode.

  1. Skeleton (computer programming)

    Unreferenced stub auto yes date December 2009 Skeleton programming is a style of computer programming based on simple high level program structures and so called dummy code . Program skeletons resemble pseudocode , but allow parsing , compiler compilation and testing of the code. Dummy code is inserted in a program skeleton to simulate processing and avoid compiler compilation error messages. It may involve empty subroutine function declarations, or functions that return a correct result only for a simple test case where the expected response of the code is known. Skeleton programming facilitates a top down design approach, where a partially functional system with complete high level structures is designed and coded, and this system is then progressively expanded to fulfill the requirements of the project. Program skeletons are sometimes used for high level descriptions of algorithm s. A program skeleton may also be utilized as a template that reflects syntax and structures commonly used in a wide class of problems. Skeleton programs are utilized in the template method design pattern used in object oriented programming . See that article for examples of skeleton programs.

  1. Dry run (testing)

    Refimprove date October 2007 wiktionary dry run portal Software Testing A dry run is a testing process where the effects of a possible failure are intentionally mitigated. For example, an aerospace company may conduct a dry run test of a jet s new pilot ejection seat while the jet is parked on the ground, rather than while it is in flight. In computer programming , a dry run is a mental run of a computer program , where the computer programmer examines the source code one step at a time and determines what it will do when run. In theoretical computer science , a dry run is a mental run of an algorithm , sometimes expressed in pseudocode , where the computer scientist examines the algorithm s procedures one step at a time. In both uses, the dry run is frequently assisted by a table on a computer screen or on paper with the program or algorithm s Variable programming variables on the top. The usage of dry run in acceptance procedures for example in the so called FAT acceptance testing factory acceptance testing is meant as following the factory which is a subcontractor must perform a complete test of the system it has to deliver before the actual acceptance from the contractor side.

  1. Method stub

    method stub or simply stub in software development is a piece of code used to stand in for some other programming functionality. A stub may simulation simulate the behavior of existing code such as a Subroutinrocedure on a remote machine or be a temporary substitute for yet to be developed code. Stubs are therefore most useful in porting , distributed computing as well as general software development and Software testing testing . An example of a stub in pseudocode might be as follows BEGIN Temperature ThermometerRead Outside IF Temperature 40 THEN PRINT It s HOT END IF END BEGIN ThermometerRead Source insideOrOutside RETURN 28 END ThermometerRead The above pseudocode utilises the function tt ThermometerRead tt , which returns a temperature. While tt ThermometerRead tt would be intended to read some hardware device, this function currently does not contain the necessary code. So tt ThermometerRead tt does not, in essence, Simulation simulate any process, yet it does return a legal value, allowing the main program to be at least partly tested. Also note that although it accepts the Parameter computer science parameter of type tt Source tt , which determines whether inside or outside temperature is needed, it does not use the actual value passed Argument computer science argument tt insideOrOutside tt by the caller in its logic. A stub ref http TERM S stub.html http ref is a routine that doesn t actually do anything other than declare itself and the parameters it accepts and returns something that is usually the values expected in one of the happy scenarios for the caller. Stubs are used commonly as placeholders for implementation of a known interface, where the interface computer science interface is finalized known but the implementation is not yet known finalized. The stub contains just enough code to allow it to be compiled and linked with the rest of the program. See also Portal Software Testing Method computer science Kinds of ...   more details
