Generic Programming: IFIP TC2 / WG2.1 Working Conference Programming July 11–12, 2002, Dagstuhl, Germany

Commonplace programming is set making courses extra adaptable via making them extra common. usual courses frequently embrace non-traditional different types of polymorphism; traditional courses are received from them by means of definitely instantiating their parameters. by contrast with common courses, the parameters of a universal software are usually relatively wealthy in constitution; for instance, they're different courses, kinds or style constructors, category hierarchies, or perhaps programming paradigms.

The immediate branch above the output was motion estimation versus picture coding. We chose motion estimation , and we were right; the system wasn 't finding all th e motion. If we had seen lots of colored indicators in all directions of motion, we would have looked at the picture coding branch instead of working our way up the motion estimation branch. In any case, we didn 't start at the top and verify the picture coding; that would have involved verifying the frequency domain transform, the run-length coding, the variable-length coding, the quantization, and a dozen other complicated-sounding areas of the software that feed into the picture-coding branch.

Guess what-it can, and it often does. Uyou fix something that you know is wrong, you get a clean look at the other issues. Our hotel technician was able to see the direction of the bad wiring on th e really slow terminal only after he fixed the high resistances in both directi ons in the breakout box. Sometimes, fixing one problem does fix the other problem; the two re ally are the same bug. Furthermore, if the fix for any problem has any effect on any- OiYi~e dn~ (on~uer 80 81 thing else, you'll want to implement it before you continue your testing.

We'll talk more later about checking your assump tions, which is a way of widening your search range. Which Side Are You On? Our hotel technician was actua lly quite lucky in his initial search, because the problem occurred in both directions of signal fl ow, but at the same place in the wiring. He was able to see bad signals no Di'i~e dn~ (onquer 75 matter where he looked, and he simply moved in the direction the bad signals were co ming from. In the second part of the search, however, he had bad data only going out to the terminal; the data coming in from the terminal was fine.
