Say i have this 10,000,000 (10 million) byte file.
I want to perform multiplication,addition and few other operation on all those bytes(total of 5). And after it is done say if i want to repeat the addition and other operations on the same file like a loop,then
How many such instructions can i execute in a programming language like c++?
Also when they say instructions,does one instruction count as a operation on every bit or byte or does it mean an actuall addition operation ?? and how does cycles and hertz fit inside all of this ??
I really want to know how much a processor can compute in a second,so
Thankyou and have a new year..
