  1. Please tell me what do we need to know about the major computers like ENIAC etc? I mean details like fullform, major features,.. What else?

    1. These old computers are part of Computer Generations, cover these as examples of generations only.

    2. ok In this expression : a + b * c / d
      as division and multiplication are performed before addition 'b' will be multiplied by 'c' before 'c' is divided by 'd' then what is the next step?
      The value obtained after multiplication will be divided by 'd' and after division the value obtained will be be added to 'a'?
      is this the correct way?

    3. Suppose a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4

      Then, 1 + 2 * 3 / 4
      Step 1: 1 + 6 / 4
      Step 2: 1 + 1
      Step 3: 2

      Note: 6/4 = 1.5 and this is integer division (or all four variables are of int type that is why it returned 1 instead of 1.5)

  2. Compiler vs Interpreter
    Which one is best? If we see from the point of view of time taken in execution, then compiler executes much faster than interpreter but if we see this from other point of view like interpreters are much easier to write because they are written in High level languages itself. So, on the whole which one is best?
    And i am having one more question: Are compilers written in 3different languages i.e. source language, target language and implementation language??

    1. Question is not of speed. Preference in selection of Compiler and Interpreter depends on their working. Both are good that is why both exists till today. Visual basic is Interpreter and C# is compiler.

      If you want line by line check of your program while typing go for interpreter and if you want to check it as a whole before execution then go for compiler.

      Moreover compilers are more popular.

      Source language, target language an implementation language are concepts of multilingual programming. We suggest you to ask question here related to XI test only.

      Thank you!

    2. ok thanks..!
      I am having problem in this topic C++ Type Conversions - "Casting a value"

      Delete
    3. As you are not asking specific questions, we recommend you to read whole concept here.

      This link is based on C language as in class XI type casting is limited to c like type casting.

  3. sweta chaturbedi via email: What is warm booting and cold booting?


    QUADD RESPONSE: When computer starts it performs hardware check (known as POST Power On Self Test), and such booting is called cold booting and when we reset or restart computer it skips hardware check (just cleans the RAM and reloads OS) it is called Warm booting

  4. sweta chaturbedi via email: What is FOSS?

    QUADD RESPONSE: There are basically two types of software: Proprietary (paid software like from Microsoft) and Free Open Source Software (free software which code is also available to change like Linux).

  5. what is difference between overflow and underflow of data?

    ReplyDelete
  6. sweta chaturbedi via email: Overflow and underflow of data
    related to variables.

    QUADD RESPONSE: Variables have specific range to store values and value more than their range is assigned to them then this is called overflow and when value lower than their lower limit is tried to assign them then it is called underflow (IN CLASS XI UNDERFLOW IS NOT FREQUENT AT THIS LEVEL OF PROGRAMMING)

  9. what is concept of utility software?

    Replies
    1. Utility software is system software designed to help analyze, configure, optimize or maintain a computer. A single piece of utility software is usually called a utility or tool. For example: Anti-virus, Backup utilities, Data compression utilities, Disk checkers, Disk cleaners, etc.
