  1. I was mucking around in General Error Handler.vi today and noticed a weird subVI with a really intersting comment inside. Thought I'd share it with the crowd, since it applies to time-critical processes, thead swapping, and general compiler insights.
  2. Did you happen to catch the announcement a while back (LV2010 era) that LabVIEW source was being compiled to DFIR (DataFlow Intermediate Representation) and then to LLVM IR (Low Level Virtual Machine) before being compiled to target-specific machine code? Let's look at LLVM a moment; it's exciting. This acronym is not just some LabVIEW R&D mumbo jumbo; the LLVM compiler is something that has cause quite a stir in the programming community for some time now. In 2012 -- two years after NI R&D publicly announced that LabVIEW was leveraging LLVM -- LLVM won the ACM Software System Award. Who else has won this yearly award given to only one project? Ever heard of, say, UNIX? Java? The World-Wide Web? Eclipse? Apache? Shite -- i guess this makes LLVM A Big Deal. A couple top-notch articles I've caught recently include: "IR is better than assembly": https://idea.popcount.org/2013-07-24-ir-is-better-than-assembly/ "Kaleidoscope and the Lexer": http://llvm.org/docs/tutorial/LangImpl1.html And my favorite, for the dear memories and sheer genius of this guy: "Statically Recompiling NES Games into Native Executables with LLVM and Go": http://andrewkelley.me/post/jamulator.html This stuff is blowing my mind, and I'm really glad to know LabVIEW has hitched its wagon to LLVM. Keep it up, Compiler Team -- chime in here and tell us more.
  3. Hi all - I've just posted a tool to analyze compiled code complexity of VIs in a project at http://forums.ni.com...12/td-p/2121692. Note that compiled code complexity is a new feature in LabVIEW 2012, and so this won't work with earlier versions. I'd be happy to answer any questions here or on the forums! (is it kosher to spam LAVA with links to forum posts? If not, my apologies...) Greg Stoll LabVIEW R&D
