  • Infographic of CLR object layout

    I do a lot of research and tinkering with the CLR -- you can see more details in my repo here. It has tons of interesting features, and among them is interacting with CLR metadata (MethodTable, calculating object heap size) and much more.

  • The search for easier safe systems programming

    .NET has explicit tailcalls - they are heavily used by and were made for F#.

  • Arena-Based Parsers

    The description indicates it is not production ready, and is archived at the same time.

    If you pull all stops in each respective language, C# will always end up winning at parsing text as it offers C structs, pointers, zero-cost interop, Rust-style struct generics, cross-platform SIMD API and simply has better compiler. You can win back some performance in Go by writing hot parts in Go's ASM dialect at much greater effort for a specific platform.

    For example, Go has to resort to this in order to efficiently scan memory, while in C# you write the following once and it compiles to all supported ISAs with their respective SIMD instructions for a given vector width: (there is a lot of code because C# covers much wider range of scenarios and does not accept sacrificing performance in odd lengths and edge cases, which Go does).

    Another example is computing CRC32: you have to write ASM for Go, in C# you simply write standard vectorized routine once (its codegen is competitive with hand-intrinsified C++ code).

    There is a lot more of this. Performance and low-level primitives to achieve it have been an area of focus of .NET for a long time, so it is disheartening to see one tenth of effort in Go to receive so much spotlight.

  • Airline keeps mistaking 101-year-old woman for baby

    It's an interesting "time is a circle" problem given that a century only has 100 years and then we loop around again. 2-digit years is convenient for people in many situations but they are very lossy, and horrible for machines.

    It reminds me of this breaking change to .Net from last year.[1][2] Maybe AA just needs to update .Net which would pad them out until the 2050's when someone born in the 1950s would be having...exactly the same problem in the article. (It is configurable now so you could just keep pushing it each decade, until it wraps again).

    Or they could use 4-digit years.

  • The Performance Impact of C++'s `final` Keyword
    6 projects | | 22 Apr 2024
    Yes, that is true. I'm not sure about JVM implementation details but the reason the comment says "virtual and interface" calls is to outline the difference. Virtual calls in .NET are sufficiently close[0] to virtual calls in C++. Interface calls, however, are coded differently[1].

    Also you are correct - virtual calls are not terribly expensive, but they encroach on ever limited* CPU resources like indirect jump and load predictors and, as noted in parent comments, block inlining, which is highly undesirable for small and frequently called methods, particularly when they are in a loop.

    * through great effort of our industry to take back whatever performance wins each generation brings with even more abstractions that fail to improve our productivity

    If you care about portable SIMD and performance, you may want to save yourself trouble and skip to C# instead, it also has an extensive guide to using it:

    CoreLib and many new libraries are using it heavily to match performance of manually intensified C++ code.

    We might not be that far away already. There is this issue[1] on Github, where Microsoft and the community discuss some significant changes.

    There is still a lot of questions unanswered, but initial tests look promising.
