this letter  , that I ask for clearing my fundamentals:-



At the software level:-

 say we have a lot of information ,


 for example we have a variable/ object (anything) called "A" , its attributes are defined , it is being used , accessed from somewhere ---- , but all it boils down to the fact that everything is held in the memory. Again we find structures, (Logical) ,of the various forms of memory like cache memory, RAM, ROM.. We think of stacks, Queue.... when we explain programs ....etc


My question is what is, a variable , or an object or   a  pointer  or a delegate , a method  -->  beneath the vaneer of the logical construct of the memory   .


How does such hundreds of information about a single element , like a pointer, et all ....   are all held in actuality  ----- How does such an avalanche of voltages we carry in a laptop, we drop the laptop (not intentionally ofcourse), or a hard diskdrive  and things do not become explosive ,----- when we code thousands of line ... are for reality....How does the Battery-Health identifies that the battery charging  is needed....... . And how does the O/S  ministering them without getting polarised.


May you name a book / study materials /websites clearing these doubts?


You may even reply with concrete answers, as usual

Hi Amigo,


To get the answers to these questions I think you really need a degree in computing science, and I admire your determination.


I thought I had a couple of textbooks in this area referenced, but the references have gone missing !  Have you tried going to Amazon / Books / Computer Science. ?  They have quite a large number of texts listed there from secondary school to university level, as well as general purpose guides like the 'Dummy's Guide to Computing'.


I wish you well,


Chris Cosgrove
