All modern languages and framework expose a set of buffer-backed data structures. Things like dynamic arrays (aka [Array]Lists) and StringBuilder. They are a useful convinience that comes with a steep price: poor memory characteristics. The way these work is simple: a fixed-length structure (typically an array) which copies itself into a larger fixed-length structure as needed.... The performance characterstics of such structures is the same as the underlying structure for read operations. While a write operation isn't guarnateed to be the same as the underlying structure, more often than not it is. The real problem with these structures is the impact it has on memory.
Dear Abby, My buffer overflowed. Should I clean up, or try to ignore it? Sincerely, Bits Everywhere.
