Parent article: Memory part 2: CPU caches

I'm sorry, I should have pointed out this quote from the article: "All processors are supposed to see the same memory content at all times.". (My emphasis.)

I agree that coding with memory barriers (etc.!) is a big subject, and beyond the scope of this installment. It would have sufficed, though, to mention that (and where) it is a matter for concern, and why.
