Specmaniacs rejoice: today is the 1st anniversary of the launch of this blog!!! To commemorate the occasion, allow us to highlight the top 5 posts (out of 72 total!) from the past year, AND give a shout out to the Specmaniac websphere with a roll-up of Specman and e language oriented online resources. Without further adieu, in ascending order of web hits and comments received …
#5 – Tech Tip - Double Wall Clock Performance with One Easy StepThe advice in this short&sweet post – that the simple act of compiling your e test bench can cut the wall clock run time performance in half – came as a surprise to many (including some veteran Specmaniacs).
#4 – Extending Multiple When-Subtypes SimultaneouslyInspired by an AE’s brainstorm from working with a challenging customer environment, this post is less about When-subtypes, and more about how you can easily extend e to effectively create your own reusable language constructs with macros to address specific needs.
#3 – Grey-Boxed Data-Path Approach Using 'when sub-typing'This article was our first guest post from the user community, and it is a solid, real world case study on applying When-subtyping.
#2 – AOP Discussion on LinkedInAs all Specmaniacs know, the e language’s support for Aspect Oriented Programming is a big part of Specman’s easy reuse, scalability, and overall time saving power. However, it’s often a challenge to describe the value of AOP to others. This post by Team Specman’s own Brett Lammers is all you need to make the case.
[[[ drum roll, please …]]]
#1 – Efrat Schneydor’s series on Performance-Aware e coding GuidelinesOK, this is technically not one post, but it’s one in an excellent 5 part series on how with a few changes in your code, and/or writing clean code from the start, you can dramatically increase the wall clock and memory performance of your testbench. All e coders should print out these posts and tape them to their cube walls.
