The story goes like this;

There will be DebConf 11 in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina) from 24th to 30th July 2011. It's actually very close to where I live, but the fact is that economic situation in my country is bad, lot of people are out of work or not being paid for their work, etc. Basically, I wasn't sure will I be able to pay for whatever is necessary to be at DebConf 11 by myself, so I decided to apply for sponsored registration which is defined as follows; [QUOTE][B]Sponsored...

Creating a patch . . .

Posted 05-28-2011 at 02:03 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

Hi all,

I thought I'd share a procedure for making patches that I learned.

Starting with information from a mailing list or newsgroup for a patch, copy the relevant information to a text file and give it a descriptive name with a .patch suffix.
  1. tar -xf file.tar.bz2
  2. mv file file.orig
  3. tar -xf file.tar.bz2
  4. cd file
  5. patch -Np1 ../file.patch # Applies patch from newsgroup or other source with offsets
  6. cd ..
  7. diff -Naur file.orig file > file.new.patch

dumping a file in hexadecimal

Posted 05-28-2011 at 05:03 AM by neonsignal

There are several ways to dump a binary as hex values. The following examples generate single byte hex values with no addresses (which can be useful when generating array initialization code).

There is the program od:
Code:
od -A n -t x1 file.bin
The '-A n' turns off the addresses, and the '-t x1' sets it to single byte hex formatting.

There is also the program hexdump, which is more flexible in the formatting of the results:
Code:
hexdump

running mathcad under wine

Posted 05-28-2011 at 04:52 AM by neonsignal
Updated 05-28-2011 at 08:21 PM by neonsignal

Mathcad is a commercial visual mathematics editor that can execute formulae. Because it is what-you-see-is-what-you-get, it makes for a useful documentation tool. I have searched for equivalents in the free software world; Octave is useful for running mathematical models, and TeX can handle the typesetting of complex formulae, but having a visual editor means that working models and their results can be printed out in a human readable form.

The versions of Mathcad run with varying...
