Copying objects bytearray vs for in loop



4 Comments

I was curious, which of those would be quicker in the “copying objects” battle — bytearray / for in loop.
Foreseeing your possible thoughts, “yes” i do realize that those methods actually differ (bytearray copies the entire object, uses describeType etc), but still curiosity takes over :)
And, frankly, i was surprized with the results. See it for yourself.

Keep in mind that


trace(0 === -0);			// true
trace(Math.atan2(0, 0));	// 0
trace(Math.atan2(0, -0));	// 3.141592653589793
trace(Math.atan2(-0, -0));	// -3.141592653589793

function posZero(n:Number) { if(n === 0) return Math.abs(n); }

adobe.max.2010

Today was the 1st day of the Adobe max 2010, and as far as some of you already know, i wasn’t able to attend it personally, so i had to watch it live at http://max.adobe.com/online/ (btw in HD !!!).
I won’t write a poem about it, as tomorrow there will be one available at the said above http://max.adobe.com/online/ they’ve already posted the replay of today’s session. However i just owe to mention what really impressed me and that was the Alternativa’s 3d game called “Max racer” (a demo of the new, 8th edition of the engine), which was presented by Kevin Lynch as a sneak peak of fp’s performance increasement.

Ough, and the most important notice: check out the today’s replay http://max.adobe.com/online/monday/


I guess, that’s it for now. Now, back to work. Cheers ;)

There’s that rumor walking around the web that ms intends to purchase adobe.
What for? Didn’t they just yell about SL being the future of the web 2.0?
I guess it’s just a rumor and possibly a marketing strategy (adobe’s shares increased about 17%).

Flash on the iPad

Well, finally someone’d found some courage to stop Steve’s flash rage :)

Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex (http://twitter.com/comex). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.

A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort at http://github.com/comex/frash – fork it and send a pull request with your patches.

Frash uses a multi-process model similar to Chrome on the desktop, so a crash in the Frash/Flash plugin doesn’t take down the browser. You can see this while I’m playing Alien Hominid: the ad above crashed (probably a Frash bug), but Safari stays open just fine, and continues to play other Flash content on the page.

Video and keyboard input are currently not supported. The former will require major reverse engineering of the video decoding frameworks on the iPhone, but the latter should be reasonably easy to implement.

…and if anyone from Adobe reads this: Hosting the libflashplayer.so binary somewhere accessible outside the Android Market would make this a lot easier to distribute :) .

Shot on an iPhone 4 and edited using iMovie on the phone.

ps: muhaha, i told u Steve that yr rage was useless ;)
