Becoming a console programmer : LHS

Zak Whaley pointed me at this article on "Some Assembly required" discussing float-> int conversion and what occurs when its done following onto the LHS article within the same site which describes relatively well what "Load Hits Store" (LHS) is and how to avoid it using the restrict keyword.

Later when i discuss math libraries i will come back to this with respect to vector <=> float interchange and how to effectively remove it from transient use.

Hi Andy

Your link seems to point to a "float to int" conversion article, rather than the LHS one.

I'm guessing you might mean
