/str:'d*d/ (scientific computing) Said of a sequence of memory
reads and writes to addresses, each of which is separated from
the last by a constant interval called "the stride length", or
just "the stride". These can be a worst-case access pattern
for cache schemes when the stride length is a multiple of
the cache line size.
Strided references are often generated by loops through an
array, and (if the data is large enough that access-time is
significant) it can be worthwhile to tune for better locality
by inverting double loops or by partially unrolling the outer
loop of a loop nest.
