Example text

Unfortunately, the assert macro is not a panacea; it brings with it its own rather nasty side effect: it is very important to never include active code inside an assert. In this case, active code is defined as code that performs an action; for example, modifying a variable or calling a function that causes a nonlocal variable to be altered. Including active code inside an assertion is very bad because the code will only ever be run in a debug build; in non­ debug builds, the code will simply be removed.

The most effective way to help the compiler out in this situation is by limiting the amount of code and number of variables that it has to consider at one time. This is done through manipulation of the compiler's scope: a variable is more likely to be kept in a register if its scope (the number of instructions it exists over) is limited. When a variable is declared, its scope encompasses the current code block and any code blocks contained within it, where a code block is defined as a section of code delimited by { and } .

Let's look at the one of the simplest search algorithms (searching for an item of data in a linear list, or array, of items) and try to find its order of complexity. Once we have done this, we have a value that we can compare against other algorithms to tell if they are really an improvement. Possibly the simplest search is to compare each item in turn against the value we are searching for, until we find it or exhaust the list of items. Obviously, if the item we are looking for is at the front of the array, we will find it immedi­ ately.
