dict odd behavior? (or code is odd :)
dict set foo somefoo 0
running the code below will alternate between a value of 1 and the expected incremented value
(output shown here is after 14 runs)
% dict set foo somefoo [incr [dict get $foo somefoo]]
% dict set foo somefoo [incr [dict get $foo somefoo]]
It's been a long time since I've played with Tcl and just now getting back into it, so is my code just bad or is there something wrong with my Tcl build?
You're incrementing a variable named 0 (which is what your first [dict get] returns).
You're looking for [dict incr]
On 6/12/2014...Odd behaviour for time, timezone, timestamp...
I am trying to track down a problem with emacs timestamps, I have a
new laptop running XP with ntemacs 21.3, and an older machine also XP
running 21.2. The old machine correctly timestamps files, but the new
machine timestamps them with UCT and I cannot figure out why. The two
machines have identical .emacs files. Both have identical site files
(the auctex site-start).
Looking into how emacs interfaces with system time I find the following:
(current-time) gives the same numbers on both machines
(current-time-zone) gives the same result (0 "NZS") on both machines

Dear MATLAB users
I want to sort a string that contains non-ascii charaters, such as
I found that MATLAB sort these character according with its double
value. However, I want to sort them using another rule, for example
'PinYin' which represents its pronouncation.
Here is an example,
A =3D '=CE=D2=B0=AE=B1=B1=BE=A9=B5=D8=B0=B2=C3=C5'
Using sort(A), we can get:
this sequence is sorted according to character's double value. Now I
want to sort it according to its pronouncation, how can I do that?
200...Even more questions and answers about video adapters
Q. Why don't the grayscale text modes appear grayscale?
A. The grayscale modes allowed 16 shades of gray in text modes 0h,
02h, and graphics mode 05h instead of the 16 CGA palette. But these
shades of gray were generated by the composite color generating
circuitry of the CGA, PCjr., and EGA. If the display adapter does
not contain composite video generating circuitry, (and RGB-composite
converters do not count), then there will be no visible difference
between the color and grayscale modes. The VGA, although it has the
capability to produce 64 shades of gray, will not emula...Odds and ends

IBM Object REXX explicitly documents that SysStemSort is not a "Stable"
sort, that is, values with equal "keys" may not necessarily stay in
their original order. In other words, if you sorted:
� by just character position 1, then the resultant stem would not
necessarily be in the original order.
You can maintain the original order by adding the tail number to the
actual data, sorting on your columns or choice, and adding the stem
number as the least significant column in the sort. Then you have to
strip the stem numbers back out agai...here's an odd one

I am writing a paper in Latex. I spent a couple of weeks coding up a
nice statistical analysis and getting nice plots to match. Then, after
fiddling with it last night to debug something, somehow the code is no
longer providing proper bounding boxes. I opened up a file in a text
editor to see, and the bounding box is there, but there's some
gibberish (binary?) in the first line of the file gumming up the works.
Now, the reason I spent a lot of time on this when I wrote the code is

...keyed sorting and comparison functions
Does Haskell have keyed sorting and comparison functions like
Python's? They are very handy. I couldn't find anything like them in
the Data.List doc but I think they would be a good addition.
Here is my version of a keyed sort, that is probably not very idiomatic,
but makes the decorate-sort-undecorate strategy very explicit:
sortKeyed :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a]
sortKeyed keyfunc xs =
map = Prelude.map
decorate x = (keyfunc x, x);

d = map decorate xs;

I have conducted a logistic regression with 2 predictor variables. The first
