IDF Translators continued ...
I read through the thread from early January of this year about IDF
translators. I have a translator that I have written that will import
and export IDF 3.0 files. I have been tweaking it for about 3 years and
am almost ready to put it out as shareware.
IDF is very simple in concept, but to really make it work reliably
requires a substantial investment in robustness of your SolidWorks
library parts and the placement and and orientation of the part. It
also requires a lot of information be understood by the user about the
PCB that they are designing. This is true whether you use Circuitworks

I wonder if the Mac Palm Desktop will EVER get a Duplicate Finder
function as the M$ version has had for eons.
I keep sync's on two diverse machines and every so often, for
unexplained reasons, I get lots of duplicated address entries.
I can hunt and delete by hand; or use a Windoze machine and solve
it quickly; then make the Palm predominant on the next Mac syncs.
Still a PITA..

I'm exploring the idea of using either Desktop EDA or CircuitWorks to
translate IDF files with Cadence / Allegro.
Is one tool better than the other? What is the typical license
cost... perhaps the cost will determine which software to buy?

My interest in this new topic was piqued by santosh's recent posting
concerning the subject of ``diagnostic message'' here in clc.
After reading the C99 standard (``n1256.pdf''), I am unclear if the
requirements of the ``translator'' are fulfilled if a translator does
nothing more than emit appropriate diagnostics -- without taking any
additional steps that could possibly lead to an executable program.

In the following program, image A looks OK for the first coordinate
translation (A starts with [-50 -100]. The second coordinate
translation is actually an inverse process. However, image B does not
start with [0.5 0.5]; it starts with [50 100], instead. Why is that?
Please some explain to me. Thanks in advance.
im = double(imread('lena.tif'));
T = [ 1 0 0; 0 1 0; -50 -100 1] % Spatial coordinate translation
tform = maketform('affine', T);

There is a bit of a fight between light weight and heavy weight
I think I can see a pattern in preferences.
There are engineering desktops like XFCE, Fluxbox, Icewm etc that
are fast, minimalist and suited for most engineering tasks.
There are heavy weights like KDE that are best suited
for office applications.
If everyone start calling their desktop either an Engineering
Desktop or an Office Desktop, and then express their preference
in Engineering Desktops or Office Desktops, then I think we begin
to see that there is nothing to fight over.

I'm one of the millions people in the world who have been impressed by
Linux's awesome user interface or desktop effects. It really is a
better UI system than Mac or Vista. I'm here to ask a question. Where
can I access the source code of the desktop effect? or where do I need
to start from in order to study Linux's user interface system or X
Any advice will be much appreciated.

I can create a link to application in the desktop folder and that
directory is in the tree.
If I add an application to the desktop from the main menu it goes to the
main desktop instead of to the desktop folder. Where is the directory for
the links on the main desktop? Can I copy them from the main desktop to
the desktop folder?

Does anyone know how to have icons placed on the desktop and have them stay
there even on reboot. If you have or have had an HP machine you know what
I'm talking about. I think it may involve manipulating the registry..?
Copy the icon from wherever it is, and paste it as a shortcut on the desktop...
