Khronos, y u no triple buffer?

24 August 2015 - 02:12 PM

I'm working on some ES 2 code and setup is done using EGL and I want to enable triple buffering.


Is this not handled by OpenGL at all? Not in EGL or any other spec?

Is it implied in the eglSwapInterval API?

Understand C + Coding Horror

10 September 2010 - 04:24 AM

Just had to share...

I got a new job recently and have been thrown into the fire to 'get it working' and one of things I did to start learning the code-base is fire up Understand C and look at the call-graph... the previous developer literally named her task functions A1(), A2(), A3(), ...
(I thought this sort of thing was urban legend.)

Anyway, are there any other tools like http://scitools.com Understand C/C+?

[.net] Two Pass Compiling Grief

08 April 2010 - 03:32 AM

So our .NET code-base has grown & grown and now we are feeling the pain of two-pass compiling. I just made a very simple tweak to a regex statement in a common assembly and hit build and "watched in horror" as nearly the the entire solution rebuilt. I'm curious if other people have reached this point and if they took as steps to do something about it. My first thought was we need to separate the interface from the implementation... ('round in circles we go.) Once the project becomes large (I think we have about 100 projects now) do most setup their project such that they have "pure interface" assemblies and then implementation assemblies? Or just accept that the world rebuilds?

Why is Win32 Sleep still such garbage?

12 February 2010 - 06:28 AM

It's actually gotten /worse/ over the years - you can't even sleep for anything close to 1 ms anymore (with the calls to timeBeginPeriod(1)/timeEndPeriod(1)). You get 2 ms. And if you Sleep(2)... you get 3 ms. Besides being a rant, I am curious if there any genuine reason this API call sucks so hard? It seems with today's multicore super computers reliably getting service every 1ms ought to be pretty easy to accomplish ><.

Rate post not users

My apologizes if this has been suggested a million times already, but it would be nice to rate a particular post +/- as opposed to the user.
