My Erlang Notes circa 2004 with some recent additions


  • let it crash philosophy - supervisors handle actor crashes
    • most common - restart actor with initial state
    • actor recieve messages in mailbox - can be across nodes
  • dynamically typed and strongly typed so no implicit conversion
  • atoms, tuples, pattern-matchingå
  • no true strings
  • atoms can't be garbage collected
  • Some BIFS implemented in C for speed

passing array as ref to maintain size info in C++
View find_duplicates_in_unsorted_array.cpp
// If std::array is not an option (e.g embedded), use the following tactic to maintain size info of array as param
// This method uses non-type template arguments to retain size of array.
// See std::begin() and std::end() for similar approaches.
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
// @param h {T} represents highest number in given array
// used to determine size of hash array

x86 Memory Addressing Modes with examples

x86 Memory Addressing Modes

Effective Address

effectiveAddress = BaseReg + IndexReg * ScaleFactor + Displacement

BaseReg = any general purpose register
IndexReg = Index Register - any gen purpose register except Stack Pointer Reg (ESP)
ScaleFactor = 1,2,4,8
Displacement = Constant offset encoded w/in instruction

Underscore chaining. This example scans a collection, finds all items that match a condition, then returns a new collection from the matches with custom structure.

Closure demystified. Closure is best expressed when a function returns an anonymous function. If the nested anonymous function references a variable within the parent function context, that variable reference will be accessible when the nested function is invoked.
View js-closure
var multiplyByNumber = function (x) {
return function(y) {
// this nested anonymous function references
// parent 'x' arg variable
return x * y;
* multiplyBy5 below is a function because multiplyByNumber returns a function.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
