Interfacesilt Objective To discuss the considerations that must be addressed when designing an interface To illustrate these design issues with a simple yet useful example The essence of design is to balance competing goals and constraints Although there are many tradeoffs when one is writing a small self contained system the rami cations of particular choices remain within the system and affect only the individual programmer But when code is to be used by others decisions have wider repercussions gt The examples in these slides come from Brian W Kernighan and Rob Pike The Practice of Programming AddisonWesley 1999 Themes Interfaces what services and access are provided The interface is in effect a contract between the supplier and the customer The desire is to provide services that are uniform and convenient with enough functionality to be easy to use but not so much as to become unwieldy Themes Information Hiding What information is Visible and What is private An interface must provide straightfoward access to the components While hiding the details of the implementation so they can be changed Without affecting users Themes Resource Management who is responsible for managing memory and other resources Here the main problems are allocating and freeing storage and managing shared copies of information Themes Error handling who detects errors who reports them and how When an error is detected What recovery is attempted Topics CSV Comma separated values CSV Prototype library CSV A library for others CSV A C implementation Topics 0 Interface Principles 1 Hide implementation details 2 Choose a small orthogonal set of primitives 3 Don39t reach behind the user39s back 4 Do the same thing the same way everywhere Resource Management 1 Free a resource in the same layer that allocated it Abort Retry Fail 1 Detect errors at a low level handle them at a high level 2 Use exceptions only for exceptional situations Comma Separated Values CSV Anwm

program that you understand the issues well enough to get the design right First version ignore many of the difficulties complete enough to be useful and to gain some familiarity with the problem

performance of a program The rst principle of optimization is don t Knowing how a program will be used and the environment it runs in is there any bene t to making it faster gt The examples in these slides come from Brian W Kernighan and Rob Pike The Practice of Programming AddisonWesley 1999 Approach The best strategy it to use the simplest cleanest algorithms and data appropriate for the task Then measure performance to see if changes are needed Enable compiler options to generate the fastest possible code Assess What changes to the program will have the most effect pro le the code Make changes one at a time and reassess always retest to verify correctness Consider alternative algorithms Tune the code Consider a lower level language just for time sensitive components Topics A
