Some Interesting articles…

In doing some reading around the internet about processors I recently read an article which explains the design of modern microprocessors in a very nice and easy to understand way. You can find it here. Also of interest from the same author is a short piece about exception handling that you can find here. I tend to agree with him that exceptions are a bit of a problem in programming languages, and also avoid using them much like he does. I find exceptions generally only useful to me when trying to debug code that is throwing an exception. What I typically do is try to catch it at some point and print out the stack trace and useful variables, sometimes including actions and information from other relevant portions of code. I only do this with java as you are kind of stuck with the API throwing exceptions in some cases, otherwise I try not to use them at all.
