Computer Programming Languages for Beginners

Precise timing is obtained by introducing “sleep” or “wait” functions that pause computation of one thread, perhaps allowing other threads to run. In conventional programs, calling a “sleep” function would result in an approximately timed pause; then the thread would be scheduled to resume at the next opportunity. This...

With block computation, we compute block-by-block instead of sample-by-sample. Thus, much of the computational overhead can be amortized over multiple samples. While this is a seemingly small detail, it can result in a factor of two speedup.

Functional programming, especially for real-time...
