Multitasking in ADA

How multitasking is achieved in ADA. Please look at the following pseudo code


 

Procedure ABC

task A  

task body A is

——-

End A

task B

task body B is

——-

End A

task C  

task body Cis

——-

End C

Begin

–  Procedure ABC's statements

End ABC

 
 

In the above code, when the procedure begins all the three tasks A,B and C initiated concurrently and when the procedure ends, all the tasks completes their execution.  The three tasks does not have any relation with one another (means all are independent tasks)

 
 

Suppose if the tasks are having some relations between each other, then the following code depicts their behavior.

Procedure SHARING

Task A;

Task Body A is

B.BETA(X);

C.GAMMA(X);

End A;

Task B is

                Entry BETA(X:float);

Task Body B is

                Accept BETA(X:float);

End B;

Task C is

                Entry GAMMA(X:float);

Task Body C is

                Accept GAMMA(X:float);

End C;

Begin

End SHARING;

 
 

In the above code, the task A wants to share a float variable X at a point ALPHA with the tasks B and C at the points BETA and GAMMA respectively. When the procedure SHARING starts, all the three tasks initiated concurrently and if the task A reaches ALPHA first, it will to share the information with B and C and it will wait. If B reaches BETA first, it will also wait for ALPHA to reach. Similarly if C reaches GAMMA first, it will also wait for A and B to reach ALPHA and GAMMA respectively.

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/Makefile New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/ ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_tab

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
