A new approach

Posted 12-18-2012 at 04:58 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - Tony Hoare.

Spend enough time reading security advisories and you can't help but wonder if anyone out there is actually taking Tony's first approach seriously (I'll hold off on the OpenBSD preaching for now).

Updated 12-15-2012 at 08:29 PM by rainbowsally (linkage to first part + parag alignment fixed)

ui-tools implementation (ui-tools.cpp)

The following changes are in the code below, but are listed in case you already have the file and want to fix it yourself (and see the context of the problem).

Changelog Dec 15 2012 (second prob)
"Unknown error" msg issued when it's not an error.

Here's the fix. Whenever we call
Code:
  ok = find_slots(...);
we need to return 'true' without acting on the return values but not return 'false'...

What is LTSP?
LTSP stands for Linux Terminal Server Project. It is a free and open source system where a Linux server is connected to several terminals, thus allowing a group of people to simultaneously use the same computer. Applications are run on the server, and the terminals or thin clients, handle the input and output.
