Forums moved to Google Groups

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

The forums at antlrstudio.com/forums have now been moved to Google Groups -

This should result in a lot less spam and easier administration. The phpbb forums will remain for now in case one wants too look at the archives of the previous discussions, but no new posts are allowed.

Also google groups offers nice features like receiving posts in email and of course google quality search :)

Since most people already have google accounts, they also wont need to go through a sign up before posting.

Wonder why your Java IO is slow?

Saturday, January 20, 2007

During one of my debugging sessions, I came across the following piece of code inside the java.io.PrintStream class from jdk 5.

protected void setError() {
trouble = true;

try { throw new IOException();} catch (IOException x) {}


No wonder java IO is so slow!
