A couple of days ago Battlefront announced "DropTeam" which according
to the blurb is a "Sci-Fi multiplayer tactical simulation of mechanized
ground combat using a new groundbreaking and powerful 3D engine,
DropTeam is all about fun, fast and furious tactical action - but not
at the expense of realistic physics and a credible combat experience."
At first I catalogued this as a non-wargame, not to be included in my
list of wargames in development.
Then I started thinking (always a bad sign) - wargames have always had

The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List shows how to define an \underbracket
macro. You can then apply that macro to, say, \longrightarrow.

I've had a Unix-using acquaintance tell me that he much preferred
command lines over GUI, even when using Windows. For all the advantages
of GUI I agree that it's much easier to issue a series of commands in a
command line or do something like "copy *.* a:" as well. Can we get the
best of both worlds with an interface using charts/fields of text? The
only example I can think of is BIOS config (also DOSshell a while ago),
obviously it hasn't caught on.
Of course you can argue that a fields/charts interface is in fact a

But it says "unknown function" or something to that effect. This must
be simple but the answer is eluding me.

I am looking for a DB library which allows using a block device directly as
the data store (index and data both). The basic things I see that would be
needed over using a regular file would be recognition (e.g. not refusing to
use it because it is a device), and managing the space under device context
(e.g. understands that the size is fixed and/or where it can start using
data blocks as the data expands). While my need won't exceed 2 gigabytes,
I would hope a library exists that can well exceed it (other applications
may come along). It will also need to work in a way where a single wr...Record

I am trying to build a simple tank drain model in Simulink. What should my input be to the integrator (1/s) block? I am trying to plot the liquid level in the tank. So this is what I am integrating. The initial tank height is 10ft, so I put 10 in the integrator block as the initial condition. Once I integrate, I have added a gain block that goes back to the integrator. I put -1 as the gain, since the liquid level is dropping. This really is a simple model, and I really could use your help. Thanks!

news:ih72o5...Passing command line options to an application with RB 2005 R2 Standard.
Is it possible to pass command line arguments to an application built
with RB Standard? I found out that only the Professional version can
compile command line programs, but don't know if this limitation
extends to starting a program with arguments.
I have a simple application that checks for the existance of a file,
erases the existing one and then downloads a new copy. This program
currently has a specific file to check for and download, which I would
like to specify at run time. Since the program runs unattended I can't
ask for user input after the initial launch.

...Issue with Servant look up in TAO
Am working on a multi threaded application using TAO on the server side
and jacorb on the ui end.
The application creates and returns, to each user connecting to it, a
new CORBA reference/ corba object of the same type( this reference is
private in the sense that it is not advertised and is returned via a
call on some other corba reference/object ).
What i am observing is , that when the multiple users invoke a same
call on the corba reference that they are holding, more than one user
ends up getting the same servant.
This we came to know as the application has code which...Is there a simple complex magnitude algorithm in FPGA implementation?
The FFT result output, implemented in a FPGA, is a complex number with
16-bit real part and 16-bit imaginary part. In the application, I only care
about the FFT result magnitude, Mag = sqrt(Re*Re+Im*Im).So I wonder if there
is an approximate estimation about this operation. and even more, the
decibel algorithm. I think the decibel algorithm can be easily implemented
by a looking-up-table scheme, but I still have no idea about simple complex
magnitude algorithm. I appreciate your suggestions.

I'm a linux novice and would like migrate to Linux from Windows 98.
But I've never succeeded till date in installing Linux (Redhat Linux
7.0) in my computer.
I have a Via C3 processor and a Via Appolo 133 based motherboard. I
have a new 40 GB HDD (Primary Master) and a 2 GB HDD (Primary Slave).
I had the Windows in the 2 GB hdd and tried loading Linux. I was able
to partition the 40 GB HDD and install linux but it wouldn't boot in
Linux. I had selected to insall LILO in MBR.
I was said by my friend that Load to MBR would work only if I had only

I'm involved in the jack-audio-kit-development kit (http://jackit.sf.net)
and one problem pops up over and over again: Imagine you have two threads,
one of the two running SCHED_FIFO with realtime contraints (must not block
- ever), the other is running for example SCHED_OTHER. Now the question
is: How to signal/wakeup the SCHED_OTHER thread w/o having the SCHED_FIFO
thread block. It seems pthread_cond_signal likes to block sometimes.
So is there a lockless way on linux 2.6.x kernels to wakeup another
thread? Are raw futexes maybe the way to go? Something else?

in some advertising and would like to be able to do this. Any ideas.
I've looked on the net for deconstructed actions or even photos and
came up short. Thanks
