Because inline function expansion does not require that the applications meet the criteria for whole program analysis normally require by IPO, this optimization is one of the primary optimizations used in Interprocedural Optimization (IPO). For function calls that the compiler believes are frequently executed, the Intel® compiler often decides to replace the instructions of the call with code for the function itself.
In the compiler, inline function expansion typically favors relatively small user functions over functions that are relatively large. This optimization improves application performance by performing the following:
Function inlining can improve execution time by removing the runtime overhead of function calls; however, function inlining can increase code size, code complexity, and compile times. In general, when you instruct the compiler to perform function inlining, the compiler can examine the source code in a much larger context, and the compiler can find more opportunities to apply optimizations.
Specifying -ip (Linux* and Mac OS* X) or /Qip (Windows*), single-file IP, causes the compiler to perform inline function expansion for calls to procedures defined within the current source file; in contrast, specifying -ipo (Linux and Mac OS X) or /Qipo (Windows), multi-file IPO, causes the compiler to perform inline function expansion for calls to procedures defined in other files.
The compiler attempts to select the routines whose inline expansions will provide the greatest benefit to program performance. The selection is done using the default heuristics. The inlining heuristics used by the compiler differ based on whether or not you use Profile-Guided Optimizations (PGO): -prof-use (Linux and Mac OS X) or /Qprof-use (Windows).
Combining IPO and PGO produces better results than using IPO alone. PGO produces dynamic profiling information that can usually provide better optimization opportunities than the static profiling information used in IPO.
The compiler uses characteristics of the source code to estimate which function calls are executed most frequently. It applies these estimates to the PGO-based guidelines described above. The estimation of frequency, based on static characteristics of the source, is not always accurate.
Avoid using static profile information when combining PGO and IPO; with static profile information, the compiler can only estimate the application performance for the source files being used. Using dynamically generated profile information allows the compiler to accurately determine the real performance characteristics of the application.
If one of your functions has the same name as one of the compiler-supplied inline library functions, the compiler might choose to replace the function with inline assembly code. If you have a function call with the same name as one of the supplied inline functions, then instead of calling the user-defined function the compiler assumes that the functions is the well-known function call and will replace the function call with supplied assembly code.
I can not og onto www.opm.gov/e-qip/ because I am not 128 bit encrypted and I have the wrong configuration of Mozilla. I want to use Safari. I just bought this Apple to get away from this type of problem with PCs. Am I wrong?
If using Safari, you must have Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher version or Firefox 184.108.40.206 - Mac version web browser at the "User Agent" category or higher for Firefox. Use the following instructions to configure your Safari browser to access e-QIP.
As Bob points out, this has nothing to do with Mac vs PC, it has to do with a crappy web site that is apparently written specifically for a small subset of browsers. Worse, it's horribly outdated. For example, from the FAQ:
If using Mozilla Firefox, you must have version 0.9.4 or newer. Although security settings may already be defaulted to the proper values, you should verify by doing the following in this order:
Of course Firefox is actually up to version 5 by now. I tested in v4.0.1, and both the indicated checkboxes were checked, yet it still complained about the encryption. Horrible web site. I'm guessing it only works for practical purposes with Internet Explorer... which is particularly ironic, since it may be among the least secure browsers out there. I have the feeling there's only a semblance of security (not the real thing) to satisfy some ridiculous government regulations.
Complain to those who created the site. (Of course, since it's a government site, good luck getting them to listen to you.) In the meantime, if access to this site is important, get something like Parallels so you can run Internet Explorer under Windows on your Mac and use this site.
Edit: changing the user agent in Safari to Internet Explorer 8 does, at least, let you past the browser check page. Whether that will be adequate for full site function is something only someone with access will be able to say.
You only need to organise a CNAME record to be set up if you would like your site to appear at a subdomain of a domain you already own. For example, if you own example.gov.uk and would like your site to appear at haveyoursay.example.gov.uk.
This approach to DNS management helps us to provide you with the best possible service and the most service up-time, as defined with our SLA. This approach removes the need for us to liaise with you if your IP address needs to change, which could be at unsociable hours.
Most commonly your IP address will change because we're undertaking standard maintenance or upgrading your site. Occasionally we may also move your site to provide better resilience if we detect a hardware failure, DC outages or network outages for example.
If you create an A record instead of a CNAME record, we will not be able to support your site's SLA because we will not be able to change the site's IP address without your involvement. From past experience we have found that the fewer the number of teams involved in this type of activity, the faster it can be done with fewer errors. For this reason, we do not support custom domains with A records.
A CNAME is like a forwarding address for DNS. You use a CNAME record so that your site's name can point to the server for your site without you needing to alter a DNS record if the server's IP address has to be changed. There is no additional difficulty to creating or serving a CNAME record instead of an A record.
You must not have any other DNS record(s) with the same name as your CNAME record. If you do you may see extremely complicated failure modes where end-users in different physical locations see different DNS results depending on:
RFC 1034 specifically recommends against having any other record with the same name as a CNAME record. For this reason, we do not support custom domains with any record other than the CNAME record at the same name.
If you have an online control panel for your domain then it will normally be a web application that lets you administer DNS records for your domain. The appearance and behaviour of this application will depend on your DNS provider.
If you use BIND, add a record to your domain's zone file and then reload the zone. On Ubuntu for instance, the zone file will usually be in /etc/bind/db.example.com. The new line in the zone file should look like:
If your organisation's local network or intranet has a DNS server that serves records for client.gov.uk, you will need to add an identical record to your local DNS server so that your site will be viewable from within your network.
If this is not set up correctly, you may find that your site will be accessible via the public internet but not from your office network. The easiest way to test whether your site is accessible via the public internet is to browse to your site on a 3G connection on a smartphone like an iPhone or Android phone. If your site is viewable via the public internet but not from computers on your office network then you most likely have a local DNS server that needs to have this record set up.
The first two lines, "Server:" and "Address:" may vary, they just depend on your local router or DNS caching server. The line under "Non-authoritative answer:" giving the canonical name is the one that matters and has to match the value (like "cs-example.delib.net") that we gave you.
Open a Terminal. On Mac OS X, click on the magnifying glass icon at the top-right of your screen (or press Apple + Space together) to bring up the search tool, then type "Terminal" and press Enter. On Linux with Gnome, click the "Activities" in the corner of your screen, type "Terminal" and press Enter.
This problem can surface in many situations when working with zip files. Usually the easiest way to resolve it is to simply re-download the file if it was corrupted, or if the file was incomplete. Nonetheless sometimes you have to repair the file, or use a different zip app.
I recently encountered this issue repeatedly when trying to configure Signal messenger on a Mac but ultimately was able to resolve it by downloading Signal with curl instead of an (admittedly outdated) web browser, a bit curious, but resolved either way. Using a different download method also often works to fix CPGZ zip file unzip loops, and usually suggests the file was being corrupted for some reason or another.
unzip master.zipArchive: master.zip End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive.unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of master.zip or master.zip.zip, and cannot find master.zip.ZIP, period. 2b1af7f3a8
