Overview

Do you know how to design and write applications to achieve maximum throughput using threads?

Do you know which interprocess communication tools are available to you and which ones to use when?

How do you coordinate execution among threads?

What about techniques to efficiently use and structure your application's use of memory?

Did you know that with the right design, you can write applications to run on single or symmetric multiprocessor Intel machines as well as PowerPC machines with a single set of source code?

What are the ways to tune your applications for maximum performance?

Get the answers to these and many other crucial design and programming questions in Designing High-Powered OS/2 Warp Applications.

Written by internationally renowned OS/2 guru David Reich, this book is a gold mine of insider tips and techniques for designing powerful, efficient applications that are easy to code, test, and maintain. Reich introduces you to all the features available in OS/2 Warp, tells you how they work and, with the help of numerous real-life examples and scenarios, shows you how to make optimal use of them. He covers the intricacies of:

  • The Workplace Shell and object-oriented programming in OS/2
  • Client/server, multithreading, memory management, HELP facilities, and running Windows applications in OS/2
  • Compilers, tree structures, and module structures that make your applications easier and less expensive to maintain
  • CASE tools that help you structure your program and prototype functions quickly
  • Developing versions of your code that work in languages other than English, using only one source code tree
