NetBeans 7.0 Is Now Available

  • There's actually a downside to 64-bit as well: cache coherency is poorer, so unless you're actually taking advantage of 64-bit capabilities your Notepad or other simple app might actually be a little bit slower because cache misses will occur more often.

    String processing work I've done in notepad.exe works faster in 64-bit Windows 7 than it does for me in Windows Server 2003, 32-bit...

    Specifically, the edit menu REPLACE function & with the same size data and same file, everything.

    Any largish text file exhibits it for me in fact doing that operation.

    There IS a noticeable diff. in speed of it.

    Unless notepad.exe is rewritten better in Win7 64 than it is in WinSrv 2003, I am not sure what could be the cause here.

    On cache coherency, that's really only about SMP/HT isn't it? Multi-CPU setups SHARING data in the cache areas...

    What this boils down to is this (I must not be expressing myself well today):

    HOW COMPLETE IS THE SUPPORT IN NETBEANS, for 64-bit, FOR LANGUAGES OTHER THAN JAVA? ( in a nutshell, in bold - I asked this of another replier here, & thanks for your time... )


    P.S.=> Anyhow - Weird part is, the file itself it only around 40-50mb tops, not streamable afaik in text file data alone via notepad.exe, & well beneath 32-bit 4gb size limits (2gb memory to OS, & 2gb memory (both virtual) to notepad.exe by default)... apk

Why won't sharks eat lawyers? Professional courtesy.
