AN INTRODUCTION TO OPERATING SYSTEMS ? What is operating system ?

 AN INTRODUCTION TO OPERATING SYSTEMS  ? What is operating system ?

There are two type of software Application software and System software 

Application software performs specific task for the user.

System software operates and controls the computer system and provides a platform to run

application software.

what is operating system


what is an operating system -

An operating system is a piece of software that manages all the resources of a computer

system,both hardware and software, and provides an environment in which the user can

execute his/her programs in a convenient and efficient manner by hiding underlying

the complexity of the hardware and acting as a resource manager.


Why OS Needed in computers? 

1. What if there is no OS? 

a. Bulky  and  complex  app.  (Hardware  interaction  code  must be  in  app’s code base) 

b. Resource exploitation by 1 App. 

c. No memory protection. 

2. What is an OS made up of? 

a. Collection of system software. 



The function of Operating system - 


- Access to the computer hardware. 

- interface between the user and the computer hardware 

- Resource management (Aka, Arbitration) (memory, device, file, security, process etc) - Hides the underlying complexity of the hardware. (Aka, Abstraction) - facilitates execution of application programs by providing isolation and protection.

 The operating system provides the means for proper use of the resources in the operation of the computer system.

 Codeforces rating system | Codeforces rating Newbie to Legendary Grandmaster- Codeforces is one of the most popular platforms for competitive programmers and  codeforces rating matters a lot  .  Competitive Programming  teaches you to find the easiest solution in the quickest possible way. CP enhances your problem-solving and debugging skills giving you real-time fun. It's brain-sport. As you start solving harder and harder problems in live-contests your analytical and rational thinking intensifies. To have a good codeforces profile makes a good impression on the interviewer. If you have a good  codeforces profile so it is very easy to get a referral for product base company like amazon, google , facebook etc.So in this blog I have explained everything about codeforces rating system. What are different titles on codeforces- based on rating codeforces divide rating into 10 part. Newbie Pupil Specialist Expert Candidate Codemaster Master International Master Grandmaster Internat

Vaccine Distribution Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020

 Vaccine Distribution  Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020- This Problem vaccine distribution is taken from December long challenge 2020. lets read problem statement. Problem statement- Finally, a COVID vaccine is out on the market and the Chefland government has asked you to form a plan to distribute it to the public as soon as possible. There are a total of  N N  people with ages  a 1 , a 2 , … , a N a 1 , a 2 , … , a N . There is only one hospital where vaccination is done and it is only possible to vaccinate up to  D D  people per day. Anyone whose age is  ≥ 80 ≥ 80  or  ≤ 9 ≤ 9  is considered to be  at risk . On each day, you may not vaccinate both a person who is at risk and a person who is not at risk. Find the smallest number of days needed to vaccinate everyone. Input The first line of the input contains a single integer  T T  denoting the number of test cases. The description of  T T  test cases follows. The first line of each test case contains two space-separ

Merge Two sorted array Without Extra Space

Problem statement-  Given two sorted arrays arr1[] and arr2[] of sizes N and M in non-decreasing order. Merge them in sorted order without using any extra space. Modify arr1 so that it contains the first N elements and modify arr2 so that it contains the last M elements.    Example 1: Input:  N = 4, arr1[] = [1 3 5 7]  M = 5, arr2[] = [0 2 6 8 9] Output:  arr1[] = [0 1 2 3] arr2[] = [5 6 7 8 9] Explanation: After merging the two  non-decreasing arrays, we get,  0 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 9.   Example 2: Input:  N = 2, arr1[] = [10, 12]  M = 3, arr2[] = [5 18 20] Output:  arr1[] = [5 10] arr2[] = [12 18 20] Explanation: After merging two sorted arrays  we get 5 10 12 18 20. Your Task: You don't need to read input or print anything. You only need to complete the function merge() that takes arr1, arr2, N and M as input parameters and modifies them in-place so that they look like the sorted merged array when concatenated. Expected Time Complexity:  O((n+m) log(n+m)) Expected Auxilliary Space: O(1
