SLQB - and then there were four

Parent article: SLQB - and then there were four

Interesting. This calls for an explanation of the difference between the various allocators - it sounds, from this article, that they have a fair amount in common with each other.

Any suggestions on how to pronounce SLQB? :)

Perhaps we need a "Grumpy Editor's guide to kernel memory allocators" :-)

"Guppie."

No real reason, it's just that, since SLQB is unpronounceable, and all the others are variations of "slab", this would serve to differentiate it.

SlCube. It's O(n²) in complexity, and was created specifically to make the other MM's look better in comparison :)

How about "SLICK-bee"? Or "sluh-CUE-bee"?

Simple as that - [ɛs][ɛl][kjuː][biː] or, localized for Germany, [ɛs][ɛl][kuː][beː].

BTW, I condone the use of English approximations such as “bee” for, eh well, English sounds. It does not help non-English speakers at all and only makes for loads of confusion (yes, I am referring to that sibling post above this one). Because that's [beː] for some (most?) people outside the realm of the English language. Please, just ♯ use IPA.

Since this is an english speaking forum, english approximations are fine.

This is a written forum, not a spoken one.

condone?

Sounds more like you condemn the use, rather than condone it.

condone?

Indeed so.
