In dynamic binary translation, code is translated "on the fly" at run-time, while the user perceives ordinary execution of the program on the target machine. Code fragments that are frequently executed follow the same sequence of flow control over a period of time. These fragments form a hot path and are optimised to improve the overall performance of the(More)
Dynamic compilation techniques have found a renaissance in recent years due to their use in high-performance implementations of the Java™ language. Techniques originally developed for use in virtual machines for such object-oriented languages as Smalltalk are now commonly used in Java virtual machines (JVM™) and Java just-in-time compilers. These techniques(More)
A loader is a systems program used by an operating system (OS) to load a binary executable file onto memory to execute it. The internal format of a binary executable file is called the binary-file format (BFF); this format is dependent on the OS and the particular computer architecture it runs on. Traditionally, when developing machine-code manipulation(More)
Dynamic compilation techniques have found a renaissance in recent years due to their applicability to performance improvements of running Java-based code. Techniques originally developed for object-oriented language virtual machines are now commonly used in Java virtual machines and Java just-in-time compilers. Application of such techniques to the process(More)
INTRODUCTION Limited evidence exists on effective interventions to improve knowledge of preventive medications in patients with chronic diseases, such as stroke. We investigated the effectiveness of a nurse-led intervention, where a component was to improve knowledge of prevention medications, in patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Despite the benefit of risk awareness in secondary prevention, survivors of stroke are often unaware of their risk factors. We determined whether a nurse-led intervention improved knowledge of risk factors in people with stroke or transient ischemic attack. METHODS Prospective study nested within a randomized controlled trial of(More)
