Let's Go Retro Now - A RPM Extractor w/ Scripts

Posted 01-23-2012 at 08:10 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-05-2012 at 07:44 PM by rainbowsally (Kubuntu no longer has link to experimental/optimization forum on their main page. Can't find the link to the deb package build scripts I once uploaded there.)

Simple C: Filling in the blanks - A simple memory allocator/reallocator.

Posted 01-23-2012 at 07:32 AM by rainbowsally

No memdup()? No memcat()? No prob.

Today's Features:
  • Simple C/C++ program and new memdup() and memcat() functions.
  • C macros (spanning lines with backslash) to create 'lenient' aliases.
  • Type casting in C/C++ to override sometimes overly strict syntax checks.
Anyone that has used strdup() or strcat() knows how convenient those are. But when it comes to memory allocation and reallocation for other kinds of data the lack of simple standard mechanisms for this often leads to duplicated...

DisallowTCP=false
finally restart.Still you can't user X server from outside because it has kind of firewall on it.To disable fire wall run
Code:
