We got a call from a bioinformatics group at a European university. The problem appeared simple, how to usemmap() to load a large data set into RAM all at once. OK, no problem I thought...
Today’s complex applications can soak up megabytes, a memory management strategy is crucial for RAM intensive applications like image/video processing, massive databases, and machine learning.
