Magic Matrix of order n*n is a matrix in which the sum of elements of every row,every column and every diagonal is same.The following C code generate a magic matrix of order 3*3.
One of the interesting programming problems is finding all the possible subsets of any given set. It is not only asked in many programming contests but is also used as a function in solving other programming problems.
The C code for finding the subsets of any given superset using recursion has already been presented here [...]

University of Illinois researchers have taken several small steps toward developing new parallel programming models to tap the many-core processors of the future. The DeNovo project attempts to define a new and more rigorous way of utilizing shared memory. It is working concurrently with a separate effort to define a deterministic, [...]
Open–Source movement/ free software movement began in 1983 when Richard Stallman announced the GNU. Idea was to start a freedom of movement for users of computers replacing software with restrictive licensing terms for free software.
These days this is referred as the green revolution of the IT sector, the earlier green revolution of the agricultural sector, [...]
