In general, abundance of Carabidae and Lycosidae were overestimated by pitfalls, while Staphylinidae and Linyphiidae were underestimated, and beetle larvae showed no obvious trend. The overestimation of Carabidae and Lycosidae by pitfalls had its maximum in spring and summer. Numbers collected by pitfalls did represent actual population densities better in the field than in the set-aside. This is probably caused by the higher vegetation diversity and complexity of the set-aside land which additionally influenced the catches. Pitfalls recovered higher numbers of animals and species, and species composition differed significantly between pitfalls and photoeclectors, in the field as well as in the set-aside. Body size seemed to be the main factor in determining the catch, the relatively larger species being more frequently caught by pitfall traps. In sum, the relationship between pitfall trap catches and actual population densities appeared to be either absent, weak or highly variable among taxa, habitat and time of the season. Therefore, in most cases absolute density estimates should be preferred for the study of epigeal invertebrates in arable land.

PS: I welcome any explanations of why this is for my immediate satisfaction :- As far as I know, the first extensive treatment in print was in Koenig's great book, C Traps and Pitfalls -- 20 years old and still in print indeed, in-stock and shipped immediately from site!

Unfortunately, there are no previews of it available in Google Books, and while the PDF of the internal report which formed the book is available online , it's obviously much shorter than the book and in particular it does not mention the "open-ranges" issue.

There are of course pirate copies on the web, but I don't recommend downloading those.

C Traps and Pitfalls

Several years ago, I summarized Koenig's reasoning here , with a followup discussion here , but of course that's no substitute for the complete treatment as found in his book though it may be a helpful complement, as in the second post in particular I add other observations in response to critique that was posted on that thread. I was wondering if accessing an array outside its boundary line 2 in the following code sample would ever produce an error?

Fortunately we do not have to refer to this element, merely to its address, and that address does exist in every C implementation we have encountered.

Moreover, ANSI C explicitly permits this usage: the address of the nonexistent element just past the end of an array may be taken and used for assignment and comparison purposes. The screenshot shows the deadlock.

Okay, lesson learned the hard way. The predicate is necessary but there must be a way to simplify the program conditionVariables.

An atomic predicate Maybe, you already saw it. The variable dataReady is just a boolean. We should make it an atomic boolean and, therefore, get rid of the mutex on the sender. Once more, the program has a race condition which can cause a deadlock. Right, but the wait expression condVar. This race condition may cause a deadlock. What does that mean: published, but not correctly synchronised.

Let me assume the notification is sent while the condition variable condVar is in the wait expression but not in the waiting state. In fact, for an excellent discussion and a "wander out on to the thin ice of advanced pointer manipulation" his term , have a look at Andy Koenig's excellent book "C Traps and Pitfalls" sanitised site link.

Using pointer arithmetic requires a bit more of a deeper look. Unfortunately, this program is wrong, for a subtle reason.

To see where the trouble lies, ask when the buffer is flushed for the last time. But by that time, the buffer has already been freed! Once when I was reading some python docs I came across a reference to an article that explained why programming languages with 0-based indexing should always exclude the last element during operations like slicing:.

According to C Traps and Pitfalls:. But how can it make sense to refer to an element that doesn't exist?

Fortunately we do not have to refer to this element, merely to its address, and that address does exist in every C implementation we have encountered. Of course it is illegal actually to refer to that element! Why do these print different results?

Doesn't c[] also declare a pointer that points to the first character of the array and therefore should have size 4, since it's a pointer? Back to top. Kernighan and Dennis M. Ritchie C:
