Re: Anyone using Rust on a PI ?

I'm not sure what the definition of "feature complete standard C" Clear enough is it not? Conforming to some version of the C standard as published in the appropriate ISO standard document. Of course we don't expect support for all or even any of the standard library functions, space will likely no...

Re: Anyone using Rust on a PI ?

Yeah, the classic PIC micros are a bit weird. Which probably explains why there is no GCC target for those PICs whilst there is one, avr-gcc, for the similarly small ATMEL AVRs. As used by Arduino. I gather that there are C compilers for those little PICs though. I wonder if they are feature complet...

IBM Power is going nowhere. Only a few years ago I was in a meeting with some IBM guys with my boss at their campus in Dublin.

For your amusement, there is another way - function attributes.
Until such time as function attributes become standardized in C they are not really up for language comparisons.

But jeez, what a heinous mess of a syntactic aberration function attributes are. Eeeww.

What if 9-bit type-III unums turn out to speed machine learning by 78 percent over the latest float-16 craziness? Good question.

I think the pandemic lock down must be making you stir crazy. The Pi and Apple are not even in the same market in any meaningful way. Even if we...

Re: Use raspberry pi 3 with network switch?

Thank you, but why does the Pi's ethernet interface need to be gigabit? I did not say it did. And it does not. Your switch will shunt data between whatever other PC's you have attached to it at gigabit speeds or whatever they can manage. I was just pointing out that the Pi will not be communicating...

SoftBank, or Nvidia? That's a no brainer. Nvidia is run by engineers, SoftBank isn't. That is no doubt a very good thing for ARM. Given that Nvidia is taking big strides into the embedded/IoT world it sounds like a good move for Nvidia as well. See the ARM based Nvidia Jetson modules: https://www.g...

Re: Use raspberry pi 3 with network switch?

The Pi 3 will work with your gigabit switch as it does with any ethernet hub/switch/router. The Pi 3 does not have gigbit ethernet interfaces so don't expect speeds like that. What you want to do there is turn your Pi into a WiFi router, much like any cheap domestic wifi router. If it were me I woul...

Apple might not be pleased with this idea.

But later Apple was in a survival crisis and was saved when it sold it's ARM shares...

Quite likely it does. Hardly surprising. I could not make out what point it was you were trying to make either.

Please don't shout with all that extra big font. It does not make any point easier to not miss.
