Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Often-Run Piece of Code -- Ever?
Hugo Villeneuve writes "What piece of code, in a non-assembler format, has been run the most often, ever, on this planet? By 'most often,' I mean the highest number of executions, regardless of CPU type. For the code in question, let's set a lower limit of 3 consecutive lines. For example, is it: A UNIX kernel context switch? A SHA2 algorithm for Bitcoin mining on an ASIC?A scientific calculation running on a supercomputer?A 'for-loop' inside on an obscure microcontroller that runs on all GE appliance since the '60s?"
