in reply to CPU Boundries, Buffering, & Speed Discussion
Is there a way to figure out how long a program should theoretically take to run through the full program? The whole I/O, pipes, tunnels, etc on computer communications is somewhat intimidating
You will need a computer to do that. It is called "running it". :-)
scnr. Actually, it can quickly become impossible to foresee (and test) all the eventualities a programme can theoretically reach, especially if it is already too complex for the programmers to fully understand it.
