yes. At a given precedence level (and obviously two of the same
operators are the same level) evaluation proceeds from LtoR.

There are a few thing you need to understand:
1. You need to get matlab in order to translate the simple code
2. You should define your parameters as in what is the expected output of your search based on the equations used:
Is it : a) 4/2/2

I hope this isn't too trivial to ask, but I'm evaluating a polynomial
that involve lots of terms like x^2y^2z^3, and although I can use the
power function pow(a, b), I wonder if just writing x*x*y*y*z*z*z for
example wouldn't be more efficient than pow(x, 2)*pow(y, 2)*pow(z,3).
Or is it all the same?

May be the help for linspace should change?
"LINSPACE(X1, X2, N) generates N points between X1 and X2."
Notice, it says BETWEEN.
But when I ask for 2 points, between 2 and 2:
May be mathematically this is ok? i.e. there are infinite points between
the point and itself? (on the real line), but from programming point of
view, it is confusing. no?
Maybe it should say "generates N points between X1 and X2, inclusive."
What did you expect to get back as an answer from issuing linspace(2,2,2)?
I didn't understand your statement "there are infinite points between the point and itself?" How do you have an infinite number of points between 2 and 2? I can see an infinite number of points between 2 and something that's not itself, like 2.00000000000000001, but if they are absolutely perfectly identical how are you getting an infinite number of points?

I was just not expecting it to "work". may be an error message. That is
not the point. The point is that it did work.

are now available for download from:
This is a patch release that updates ActivePython to core Python 2.6.2
and 3.1b2. This release also contains updates to Tcl/Tk 8.5.7 and Tix
8.4.3. We recommend that you try 2.6 version first. See the release
notes for full details:

Does anyone here have any of the versions named in the subject?
I am unravelling 68K Basic I-Code, and I need to compare 2.0, 2.2 and 2.3 modules with 2.1 and 2.4 modules. There are differences between 2.1 and 2.4, and I want to know how many other differences there are between versions.
Thanks in advance.

I've been tasked with upgrading the JVM from

by my company on our existing Java framework.
I'm most worried about any problems that may occur
due to upgrading Xalan and Xerces as our framework
performs much XML transformation and processing.
Does anyone have a link to known issues with such
an upgrade (besides the Xalan / Xerces sites) ?
Or has anyone done such an upgrade and can share
their pearls of wisdom?

But first, let's talk about LISP, Lisp, Scheme and Common Lisp.
LISP is the name of the programming language invented in 1959 by John
McCarthy and of the first program implementing it written amongst other
by Steve Russel, one of his students.
LISP 1.5 is a segueing version of that same program dating about 1962
that had some distribution.
Then various lisp languages were developed at various places by various
teams. Names such as MacLisp, InterLisp, LeLisp, StandardLisp, vLisp,
Lisp Machine Lisp, Scheme, GNU Emacs Lisp, etc. It was quite a mess,
and people had a hard time sharing programs. So they talked and
designed and wrote and voted and produced the ANSI Common Lisp standard
(in the USA), meanwhile in Europe they produced the ISO Lisp standard.
Nowadays, almost all the other lisps are "dead", with only scheme

come out garbled, as a block of junk characters.

I tried the first time my wxMSW application on Linux with wxGTK

is a GTK limitation or wx' one:

But perhaps in a toolbar wxBitmap("myIcon_16.xpm") works.
- No "real" MDI support and no StatusBar support for Childframes
(this _should_ be documented)
- wxTE_RIGHT does not work for wxTextCtrl
- wxListCtrl in wxLC_ICON - Style aligns the icons to the left.
I know that's a Win32-Feature to align the icons "centre" but
Evolution also supports this (perhaps Gnome feature?)

The above was posted as a test.
I am seeing if people in csma will start to debate the accuracy of my
claims. After all, in base 3, there is no symbol "4". I am sure others can
come up with ways to show I am wrong. Then, when I explain how 2 + 2 really
is equal to 4, even in other bases or whatever other silliness is presented,
I will be told that I am changing my claim. Someone will even go so far as
to say that since I admit there is no "4" in base 3, that my argument has
been refuted, and I should no longer state that 2 + 2 = 4.
This has only been a test.

bindings for HTTPS support, the Tix GUI widgets for Tkinter,
ElementTree for XML processing (ActivePython 2.5 only), ctypes (on
supported platforms, ActivePython 2.5 only) for low-level library
access, and others. The Windows distribution ships with PyWin32 -- a
suite of Windows tools developed by Mark Hammond, including bindings
to the Win32 API and Windows COM. See this page for full details:
As well, ActivePython ships with a wealth of documentation for both new
and experienced Python programmers. In addition to the core Python docs,
ActivePython includes the "What's New in Python" series, "Dive into
