  Resolved Question: Starting point for
I understand it's a daunting task if you don't know what you're doing (which I do not) and am willing to start from the very bottom so long as small steps in success are made along the way. Really I am up for programming anything, although I have always wanted to build my own Linux O.S. from scratch. More realistically I would be up for learning Python, HTLM - CSS, or anything that would bear immediate results and keep me motivated to learn. Also, what are some good resources for beginning steps? I have been looking at "The Linux Bible", "HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites" and would be open other suggestions including those for Python.

  Resolved Question: HELP!! I don't get this
Donald Knuth's binary method. First, pull out all factors of 2 so that both numbers are odd. Now, subtract the smaller odd number from the larger, halve the difference, and keep halving it until it is odd. Repeat the above step using the new number and the smaller of the two numbers you started with, until you get two odd numbers the same. This is the greatest common factor of the two original odd numbers. Multiply it by the smaller number of factors of 2 that you had to pull out at the start. Sounds complicated? Watch it work with 926084 and 745744. 926084 divide by 2 twice = 231521. 745744 divide by 2 four times = 46609. 231521 - 46609 = 184912 reduces to 11557. 46609 - 11557 = 35052 reduces to 8763. 11557 - 8763 = 2794 reduces to 1397. 8763 - 1397 = 7366 reduces to 3683. 3683 - 1397 = 2286 reduces to 1143. 1397 - 1143 = 254 reduces to 127. 1143 - 127 = 1016 reduces to 127. The greatest common factor of 926084 and 745744 is 127 * 2 * 2 = 508. With this method, you have finished, while everybody else is still struggling to find the prime factors of 46609. PLS. help me!!!

  Resolved Question: Jonathan,Henni, please
At the end of my question I have mentioned the exact paragraph in my C book that has confused me.I have the book by Patterson & Hennessy too(on computer organization) but that's very daunting.So please sort it out for me in simple words: Suppose a file is residing on the floppy/hard-disk.And our C program wants to read the contents of the file.My book says fopen() reads the file to the buffer first and then only fgetc() reads from it character by character.Does it mean when the file is read as a whole when we read it to the buffer?Or at least it is read block by block instead of character by character? When the CPU directs the file to be fetched from the disk, is it fetched to memory character by character?Or it can "order" block by block reading too?I read in the OS book by Galvin that when a CPU gives a read instruction,an interrupt is sent to disk,then a character is read from disk to memory, then it gives an acknowledgement signal (ACK) to the CPU to denote successful reading, and the process continues for every single character.The book further says that for faster memory access in blocks, a DMA is used.Does it mean in CPU mediated I/O the reading is only in terms of single characters?In DMA the reading is terms of blocks?.I AM SO CONFUSED!!! So what i mean to ask is, when the program, through the CPU, directs that the file be read from disk to memory, is it read character by character or in big chunks called blocks?And if it is indeed read character by character to buffer the moment fopen() is encountered, doesn't it mean that it's AS TIME-CONSUMING OVERALL as reading each character from disk (using fgetc) in the course of the program instructions instead of reading it from the buffer?And wont' it take MORE time, if we intend to read a few characters from the file while fopen() MUST read ALL characters of the file to buffer the moment a file is opened?? I am sure what you got my drift.So please help me out.Your detailed answer will help me not only in programming point of view, but my understanding in Computer Architecture.(Which seems to be the area of expertise for Mr.Jonathan).THANKS!! Here's the lines taken from my C book (Not from Patterson & Hennessy or OS Galvin 7th edition) "fopen() loads the file from the disk into a place in memory called buffer.Why do we need a buffer?Imagine how inefficient it would be to actually access the disk every time we want to read a character from it.Every time we read something from a disk, it takes some time for the disk drive to position the R/W head correctly.If this were to be done for every character we read from the disk,it would take a long time to complete the read operation.This is where a buffer comes in.It would be more sensible to read the contents of the file into the buffer while opening the file and then read the file character by character from the buffer rather than from the disk." Henni, for a minute let's forget about the programming book on C.Even if I refer to Patterney and Hennessy(for computer organization) or "Operating system principles by Galvin", still I dont' know the answer whether CPU mediated I/O is character wise or not, and how the file is read to buffer (as a whole, in blocks or in terms of characters). As for the book , yeah, now I am finding out how rotten it is.But the problem is that many guys from community colleges like mine, especially to just pass the exam, used to follow that book.Before Yahoo ANswers membership I didn't even know "Void main" is wrong!!But since i am at the last 3 chapters, i feel I will be done with the book, then sort through all my yahoo answers for the errors, then read from the good sites that many contributors linked to, THEN I will go for the big thing--Kerringhan and Ritchie original book.It sells for 2.5 dollars in my nation.Hey Henni, PLZ answer this question.PLZ!!! About the I/O @Henni, Henni,meet Mr Jon Kizwan from Colorado.He seems to have a thing for computing machines,circuits and low-level programming languages!! He made a computer of his own using transistors,tubes and such as MEMORY in the 70s.My main source of help on questions related to computer architecture and Operating Systems!! @Jonathan And Mr Kizwan, meet my C mentor (For the most part of it), the mysterious Henni !!He/she answers most of my questions, yet I dont' know anything about him/her or his/her nationality.Seems a lady to me though as name resembles that of one tennis player "Justine Heni Hadine".
