I have an old Dell Latitude LM P-100SD Laptop. When I turn it on the screen
"Partition table corrupted or doesn't exist - save to disk feature is
disabled" and it doesn't try to boot from the floppy either. And when I try
to go into the bios it asks for a password which I don't have. (yard sale
computer) Any ideas ???? Thanks

First off, what OS are you running? Secondly, what type of floppy disk
are you trying to boot off of? In any case, find the Windows edition
that you want to install or work off, youll need to boot off it, so
youll have to access your BIOS settings, and since yours is password
protected youll have to "clear" or "jump" the CMOS settings, you can
think of the CMOS like non-erasable memmory and the BIOS as its
mini-processor. In order to clear the CMOS youll either have to guess
the password, use a floppy BIOS utility or "jump" "jumper 1", the last
option requires you to open up the hardware and look for two little
rods sticking up labeled something along the lines of "jmp 1". If you
have the motherboard schematics that would greatly help you out.
However if you dont think you can do any of that on your (and
understandibly so) simply visit your neighborhood computer shop to get
it fixed, this should cost you no more than $125.00 to get it fixed by
a shop or chain like best buy. If it does, scrap it and get yourself a
new laptop.

Re: Can I merge two format libraries #4
Thanks for all the replies. I think I have two catalogs and I did use SAS_learner's suggestion to convert them into datasets and merge them. Since there're quite a few duplicates, I need to just output one for each unique format. How can I check that: using fmtname and start and end together as key? I can also rename the two format catalogs and put them in the same directory and use fmtsearch. Thanks again! A.B.

Can I "trick" Perl into thinking a variable is a file?
I have an ordinary scalar variable. I want to sFTP that to a remote host, placing the value of my variable ($foo) into a file on the remote host. The Net::SFTP module uses this syntax: my $sftp = Net::SFTP->new($host); $sftp->put($local, $remote [, \&callback ]) where $local and $remote specify filenames. But I don't want to bother with creating a temporary file on my local host - I just want to send the value of my scalar variable $foo. Is there a way I can make Perl treat $foo (some data) as $local (a file identifier) so I can transfer the value of $foo without creat...

noob help request
I have defined two classes with one common field (called code) and several different fields. In class A there is only one instance of any given code as all items are individual. In class B, there may be none, one or many instances of each code, as there can be any number of Bs referring to a single A. I need to make a list of Bs, remove dupes, and then create a list of As that have Bs. (I hope this makes sense!) with much research and reading of my book I managed to get this working, but at one stage I had errors that talked about being unable to concatenate type A.

How can I prevent pagebreak between tabular environments?

I've tried both \nopagebreak and samepage to no avail. This is what my tablular environments look like. I have several thousand of these, and I never want the break to come bewteen the top and bottom parts. The reason I have two tabular environments is that I could never get the formatting right with the graphic and header text in one tabular environment. In this example, there is no pagebreak. But occasional, there will be in the f...
