coondoggie writes: "The power required to increase computing performance, especially in embedded or sensor systems has become a serious constraint and is restricting the potential of future systems.

Technologists from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency are looking for an ambitious answer to the problem and will next month detail a new program it expects will develop power technologies that could bolster system power output from today's 1 GFLOPS/watt to 75 GFLOPS/watt."

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
