Understanding asMSX Volume 1: Understanding the structure of the code - 2016-08-16 23:00:08

Hello! Welcome to another trip into another dark cave. Today we meet asMSX, an assembler for MSX’s Z80 made by Pitpan and bought and released with GPL license by cjv99 (Thanks!). Motivation It’s known that this assembler has some bugs, e.g. skipping IFDEFs when using MegaROM so there is an interest on knowing the internals of the code in order to fix this kind of bugs. My goal is not directly fixing bugs of this code but to provide more information about the code so all the people from the community may get themselves the code and fix it if there are any new bugs.

R, that language that is has gained its momentum due to the people discovering the need of analyzing data. There are other several alternatives but this is my poison (or poisson!) of choice. In this post we will try to cover how to parallelize your R code with the package parallel.  Why bother? One of my main concerns when I was starting with R is that “WOW! Everything runs in one thread!

But I was lazy. Very lazy. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Whatever. Welcome to the captain’s log on the spaceship to amazing knowledge and Nutella.
