Structure and Function of Computer

The structure and function of the computer depict how the components of the computer are assembled, how they are interrelated to each other and what operations these components perform. Being a complex system, the computer contains millions of electronic components. To understand the structure and function better we organize these electronic elements in a hierarchical […]

Difference Between Shared Memory and Message Passing Process Communication

Shared memory and message passing are the two methods of establishing interprocess communication. Interprocess communication is communication between the two processes of the operating system. Interprocess communication always takes place between the cooperating processes. These processes can affect the execution of other processes in the system. Or it can get affected by the other processes […]
