Announce: First Release of Structure101 for Java
Headway is pleased to announce the release of Structure101 for Java.
As the name suggests, Structure101 makes it very easy for users to
understand how their software is really constructed (architecture,
design, composition, dependencies, ...).
If you want to check out Structure101, check out the demos first,

...First public beta release of !ScanMod
Due to having little time left between now and Wakefield, I thought I'd
make a public release of my new module scanning utility !ScanMod, so that
peeps can have a play around with it between now and Wakefield - and come
along for a chat at the show if they would like to chat about it, offer
feedback or have a 'live' demonstration.
So, what is ScanMod?
A comprehensive module scanner. Something which is capable of scanning your
hard drive searching out all module files, irrespective of where they may
be hiding, and to compare version numbers so that you can dig out old
versions or replace with newer versions.
!ScanMod is a new application which will do just this, plus more. It will
also check 26/32 bit status of modules, warning you if it finds a 26 bit
module installed on a 32 bit machine.
It also contains a comprehensive module database, maintained by myself, so
if an old module is discovered on your machine, not only will it alert you
to the fact, but it will offer notes and/or the relevant website from where
you can download and install the latest version.
A local database is also maintained, so that you can check any differences
in modules that may occur since the last time you used !ScanMod on the same
It also contains a 'Find' facility so that you can locate 'lost' modules,
and as it contains a database of web links, find the latest version of a
particular module for download.

We are proud to announce the first Public Release of the Multivariate
Metamodeling Toolbox (M3-Toolbox). This toolbox provides a variety of
pluggable techniques for adaptively building scalable surrogate models
(neural networks, SVMs, rational functions,...).
The toolbox is free for non-commercial, personal, academic use. Feel free
to test, use, tune, extend and comment.
More information + downloads: http://www.coms.ua.ac.be/?q=m3_toolbox
In 2004, research within the COMS group was focused on developing efficient,
adaptive and accurate algorithms for polynomial and rational modeling of
linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. This work resulted in a set of Matlab
scripts that were used as a testing ground for new ideas and techniques.
Research progressed, and with time these scripts were re-worked and
refactored into one coherent Matlab toolbox, tentatively named the
Multivariate MetaModeling (M3) Toolbox.
During research into multivariate metamodeling techniques and algorithms it
became clear that there was room for an adaptive tool that integrated
different surrogate modeling approaches and did not tie the user down to
one particular set of problems or techniques. More concretely, we were
unable to find evidence of any projects that integrated:
1. Building standalone global metamodels
2. Support for different model types, different modeling algorithms, ...

I am very pleased to announce the first alpha release of Itcl/Itk 4.0
This version of Itcl is a big overhaul of Itcl 3.4.
This version is based on TclOO as the base for handling classes and objects
and for dispatching methods.
The changes are mostly internally so you should not have problems on the
You will need Tcl 8.6a3 or greater for running this version!
WARNING: this version is not backward compatible to < Tcl 8.6!!
This is no problem, as for these version Itcl 3.4 is available.
This version is trying to be less dependent of Tcl core internals.
The original test suite is running mostly (393 out of 400 test cases).
There are 5 test cases, which fail because of a different usage message.
Feature Request 1773103 is adressing that.
There is 1 test case, which is failing because of a problem in TclOO
in creating a class (TclOO class in the background) within namespace eval.
There is one test case where the handling in Tcl core has changed,
it is related to evaluation of namespace inscope.
There are 2 yet undocumented features you can use already:
- writing "this" in front of a class method call will speed up method
- using "[self]" instead of "$this" has a big performance advantage, this
is a method omported from TclOO
There are other undocumented and at the moment unsupported features like
options, delegated options and delegated methods, which will be documented

First Workshop on System Management Tools for Large-Scale Parallel Systems
(Held in Conjunction with IPDPS 2005, Denver, Colorado, April 8, 2005)
We are entering a new era in computing where the size and complexity of
scientific and engineering simulations is growing at a speed that has
never been observed before. In order to satisfy the needs of these
applications, parallel systems with an "extreme-scale" are being designed
and deployed. Although the progress in hardware and architecture design
has made it possible to build machines with tens of thousands of processors,
the development of software tools for such systems is still lagging
behind. To name just a few examples, new operating system level modifications
are needed to efficiently utilize the massive computing and networking power.
In addition, sophisticated fault-tolerant tools are in great need to minimize
the performance loss under a faulty condition. The scale of the systems
also demands advanced power management tools. For both commodity supercomputing
clusters and custom-designed supercomputers, system maintenance,
reliability, fault isolation, prevention and control pose huge challenges.
There is a great need...[ANN] First public release of "ssprep" a extensible generic project generator

OKLAHOMA CITY, June 1 � TestData.com, LLC today announced the debut of
its online data generation tool at TestData.com. David Whitaker,
founder of TestData.com, launched the website after two years in
Data generation tools allow software developers to create large sets
of test data, which can then be used to stress test their
applications. The types of data created can range from simple address
lists to complex datasets modeled after database schemas.
Traditionally, these tools have existed in software form.
TestData.com is the first and only web-based tool of its kind.
"The launch of TestData.com marks a new age in data generation," says
Whitaker. "Since we are on the web, we can offer users a much less
expensive alternative to software-based data generation tools.
Previously, you would need to buy expensive standalone software to
generate your data. Now, you pay only for the data you need, which
for the vast majority of people amounts to saving hundreds of
Cost Benefits and Feature Set
TestData.com decided to bring the data generation market to the web
for a number of reasons. First, the least expensive standalone
software tool available was $600. TestData.com found that they could
offer a significant price advantage over these products by
establishing an average per-generation cost of $10.
Another benefit of TestData.com is its large collection of preset

Hello everyone. Resently started using SQL Management Studio.
Here's the question. In the old Query Analyzer that I used to use
there was a way
to clear the result grid at the bottom. For example if you did a
statement the results would show at the bottom then you could clear/
remove the "results
window" so you would have more space to enter code on the top window
Any way to do this in SQL Management Studio. I know it a small
problem but it is driving me nuts. thanks ray
I have not seen a way to clear the bottom panels, but if you go under
Tools -> Options -> Query Results, there is an option (both for
Grid/Text) to display results in separate tab. I find this useful
sometimes to have more work space available (plus easier to see results).

...compile python in release...
I try to install two Python environments on my platform: one in release,
the other in debug.
I generate the RELEASE Python environment with the following instructions :
> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python --enable-shared
My problem is here : all the source files are compiled with the -g flag
which might be the debug flag. (On the other hand, the option -DNDEBUG
is defined : it's normal !)
Then my question is :
Is exist a flag/option to run the shell script named 'configure'
allowing to remove the '-g' flag located in the generated makefile ?

I have released MGRX, it stands for mini-grx or my-grx or Mariano's
grx. It's a fork of GRX, only C API, no BGI, no add-ons, only 4
platforms supported: djgpp, mingw, linux-framebuffer and linux-X11. A
new and different input API. And support for x86-64.
The main site is http://mgrx.fgrim.com
This looks great! I have two questions:
1) Is it faster than GRX?
2) It seems to be easy, to port DJGPP programs from GRX to MGRX?!
I ask, because i am maintaining Sword
(<http://stud3.tuwien.ac.at/~e0225895/sword/>) and am not very lucky
with GRX. But it would be a very time expensive work to port it to
Allegro, SNAP or another one.

...first time managing a project
I just got chosen as 'project manager' for our next project. It seems
like most people feel 'sorry' for me around here... We are designing a
moderately large mostly digital asic and the team consists of about 6
people. I've never managed anything before and most of the people in
the team are more senior designer than me. Right now, things are
decided from hallway conversations, and nothing is really written down
in terms of schedule and who-does-what...
I wonder what tools if any that people use to manage a project. Is
something like MS-Project any good? I understand that the schedule we
would put in place will never hold, but I figure it's better to have
something than nothing. Also, what do people use to track down bugs and
issues. The chip is divided in 6-7 blocks, each will be assigned to
one-two person. Where should I gather the information coming out of the
weekly meeting - schedule slip, bugs to be fixed etc...email?
Thanks a lot,
MS Project is a worthwhile tool but to use it effectively you need to use it
a reasonable amount. If like me you end up doing a bit here and there it is
always a bit of a struggle to find the feature you want. Whatever you do you
are it is best to break the job into manageable chucks with some kind of
sub-task target to run against. When breaking down your sub-tasks think of
things that mean that things don't happen as fast as you think. Lack of

One of my accounts (OS 10.5.8) is a managed one. By mistake I set an
application (Little Snitch Configuration) to Always Allow when it should
have been Allow Once.
I can't see how to change this back.
The app is unchecked in the list of permitted applications.
I found a plist named com.apple.applicationaccess.new.plist in the
username subfolder of the Managed Preferences folder, and when I looked
at it I could see that the app was in this plist's whitelist.
So I replaced this file by one from an old Time Machine backup, and
checked that the replacement went ok, and the app was no longer present.
I then shut down my computer and restarted it. I expected that to clear
But it didn't. The app could still be opened, and when I checked the
plist again I found the app was now whitelisted.
So how should I reset things so the app won't open for the managed

The graphics API is the same as GRX, except you must use mgrx.h and
mgrxkeys.h instead grx20.h and grxkeys.h, and link whit mgrx.a (so you
can have installed both libraries at the same time).
The input API is totally different, but I think is better and easy to
understand. See the programmer's manual.

...ANNOUNCE: Itcl/Itk releases
I'm pleased to announce several releases of the Itcl and Itk packages.
First, patch releases of the long-running Itcl/Itk 3.4.* series:
These releases contain the set of bug fixes collected over the last
three to ten years since the last known releases of these packages.
Just meant to be maintenance work.
Then, the new patch releases of Itcl/Itk 4.0.*:
Itcl 4.0.3 (also bundled with pending Tcl 8.6.4 release):
The aim of Itcl 4.0.* packages is to be a re-implementation of Itcl
and Itk on top of Tcl's core of oo::* commands that arrived in Tcl 8.6.
They aim to be the functional equivalents of Itcl/Itk 3, but with
a fresher foundation, and a greater liklihood of continuing support.
These releases are closer to that aim than any predecessor. All Tclers
making use of Tcl 8.6 and Itcl/Itk are encouraged to migrate to
Itcl/Itk 4 and help us discover what gaps still need to be closed.

...[ANNOUNCE] STklos 0.58 release
This is an announce for the 0.58 release of STklos.
STklos is a free Scheme System (nearly) conform to R5RS. The aim of this
implementation is to be fast as well as light. The implementation is
based on an ad-hoc Virtual Machine. STklos can also be compiled as a
library, so that one can easily embeds it in an application.
The salient points of STklos are:
* efficient and powerful object system based on CLOS providing
- Multiple Inheritance,
- Generic Functions,
- an efficient MOP (Meta Object Protocol)
* a simple to use module system
* implements the full tower of numbers defined in R5RS
* easy connection to the GTK+ toolkit
* Perl compatible regular expressions thanks to the PCRE package.
* tail recursive calls are properly implemented
Changes in this release:
* Better Win32 port (was no more fully functional since 0.55)
* Added a way to configure the system with our version of GMP even
if GMP is installed
* Added structure types
* Stack size can be changed when the VM is launched
* New port on Octane/SGI Irix (by Joshua Boyd) and Itanium
* Added the --interactive option for embedded VM
* Compiler can add line information to the generated code to ease
* Error locations are more accurate now
