I found two interesting links browsing the subreddit programming today.
Link number one:
From Java code to Java heap
Understanding and optimizing your application’s memory usage
Chris Bailey, Java Service Architect, IBM
A really good article hosted at DeveloperWorks with information on Java heap analysis.
Link number two:
Microsoft, please support (at least a tiny bit of) C99
An other good article by a Google employee on the current state of the C compiler.
