New-Make ready for hyperjump and KDE Menu's How-To

This is somewhat advanced stuff but.. maybe not. It might also appeal to anyone who has a little talent for tinkering who needs to set up a KDE menu for an application that doesn't have one. See warning below, however.

Today's features
  • Last of the first generation new-make installer/uninstallers (probably).
  • Usage example that installs and uninstalls a dummy application and icons into the KDE menus.

New-Make And MC2, Meet MPG123 (terminal app to play MP3 and other file formats)

Updated 08-06-2014 at 08:47 AM by rainbowsally (wrong acronym for alsa)

After that last rant about screwy software, I found some GREAT software. mpg123 is outstanding.

Today's Features
  • Me eating my words, even about assembler coding. ;-)

Famous last words galore! I even have to eat my words about asm. In fact this app is so cool I had to add the ability to compile asm and C sources in the same directory to the mc2 code.

Hashing for ID generation (hash32_enum algorithm and ASM)

Posted 12-24-2012 at 10:45 AM by rainbowsally

You're not going to get fool-proof uniqueness from a 32 bit hash, but this one gets pretty close.

[cont'd from previous blog entry where the C/C++ version can be seen (and tested). http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-lists-35223/]

If you're curious about what the hash32_enum thing in the previous blog entry would look like in assembler, this is the output using the --save-temps gcc flag.

STL Template Experiment (Lists)

Posted 12-24-2012 at 10:24 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 09:00 AM by rainbowsally (added link, grammar error, makefile line correction)

We've resurrected some dead code that was pretty ugly but the only worse MESS (officially sanctioned, no less) than STL that we've ever seen is the spaghetti in lex/flex output. -- The Computer Mad Science Dept.

So...

Now what?

Well...

...what would ANY good Computer Mad Scientist do in a situation like this?

Today's features are
  • Creating lists using the std::list STL template.
  • Identifying the critical 'operators'
