Array index out of bounds

Please assist with the following problem. I am totally lost with this so if you could also include statements telling me what you did, I would appreciate it. The entire chapter talks about array index out of bounds which has completely confused me and there are no examples in the book to help. If you could complete this progra

Explain in your own words the difference between testing and debugging.

Explain in your own words the difference between testing and debugging. [I know debugging is going through the code in an attempt to isolate the cause of the problem] Which activity is more time consuming and why? Why do companies often release software that is not bug-free? Discuss testing and debugging in terms of

Program Verification and Performance Tuning

How do you envision the ways program verification and performance tuning will be accomplished in the future? Will it still be a work of art? Will it always be the result of one's experience? Or do you forecast more and more automatic ways (algorithms?) to accomplish these tasks?

Write a C program that prints out the first n primes.

Write a program that prints out the first n primes, and n is input by the user. Example as follows: How many do you want to see? 3000 1: 2 2: 3 .... 25: 97 26: 101 .... 2999: 27437 3000: 27449 Program should be written in three files: primes.h main.c is_primes.c Attached are parts of two files (prim

Pretest and Posttest Loops

What is the main difference between posttest and pretest loops? Give examples of cases, when you will use each of them? Can you code the same functionality using any of them? To which of these two categories would you place the "for loop"?

Concurrency and interleaving

Problem: a concurrent program with two processes, p and q,defined as follows, A,B,C,D, and E are arbitrary atomic (indivisible) statements. Assume that the main program (not shown) does a parbegin of the two processes. void p() { A; B; C; } void q() { D; E; } Show all the possible interleavings of the

Shell Scripting: Few Example Bourne Shell Scripts Executions

Buffer Overflow Attack

Need some help with the attached buffer overflow attack assignment. Here is a link with pertinent information: In the foo function pushing 43 A's for example will cause the buffer to overflow.

Faults in Windows XP

Research shows that there are about 5 faults per 1000 lines of code in carefully made programs, which means that 1 million lines of codes will have 5000 faults. Windows XP has approximately 45 million lines of code. How many faults does Windows XP have? A simple calculation shows that there are 45 x 5000 = 225,000 faults in Wind
