Did this start out as a sound file that has been saved to ascii format with the extension .wav?  If it's a binary file, why are you not using wavread to read it?

Why do you want to do that?  Why not just read in the numbers (like
normal), then use fprintf or sprintf if you want to output them in
ascii somewhere.

'''''''''''''The Running Update/Append Queries Using VBA code Ordeal''''''''''''''
Hello fellow programmers, I am trying to run an append/update query from code, a command button on a form initiates the queries. the format i am using is; _____________________________________________________ SELECT "criteria" FROM "criteria" WHERE "criteria" UPDATE/APPEND "field selections" RecordSource "qryExample" = above text strings" _______________________________________________________________________ When i am running a SELECT query in this manner it works fine with no problems, and accepts the values of specified linked form fields. This never works when doing an APPEND/UPDATE query. It can never find the values of linked form fields, Access always asks for the parameter value of the field(s) in question, or Access comes up with an error 3323 - No recordset. I am sure there are other people that have had this problem. What is the difference between Select queries and append/update queries? the append/update queries never seem to be able to find values in linked form fields. Can anyone shed any light on this or point to a knowledgebase Item, or even recommend a book focusing on this subject, I will go and buy it now. I have been for up 2 nights trying to acomplish this and now considering suicide, please help. Thanks In advance, Aaron. I know of two ways you can accomplish this. 1. You can create the SQL script for you append or update query and run the script with DoCmd.RunSQL. 2. You can create a...

'[OFF]' as in 'offensive'???
Hi, given that 'off-topicness' is indicated as '[OT]' and taking a look at those postings that started the threads indicated as '[OFF]' (which may both be seen as being somewhat offensive) may lead to the conclusion that '[OFF]' stands for offensiveness. I don't think that this is the intended meaning so what actually *does* '[OFF]' mean? I never came across that abbreviation before (although I have been around on the USENET for quite some time) but maybe it is worth knowing?

replacement for '{' and '}' ?
I am still playing around with what kind of syntax I would like to mark up my documents. Are there equivalent long substitutes for { and } when they are not used to describe arguments to functions? Something like \begin{group} and \end{group}. In other words, if I could force myself to write, say, \begin{group} \it ... \end{group} instead of {\it ... }, then I believe I could identify from the markup context what is an argument that belongs to a just invoked macro and what is text. {Of course, in this context, \textit{...} would be better.} No more ambiguity whether a in \myfunction{a} is an argument or just text. Is there a way to make latex barf when it sees an ordinary '{' in text, rather than \begin{group}, but not barf when I want it (to denote macro arguments)?

Scilab's 'optim' and 'splin'
I've got this really cool application that makes a smoothed line using splines, then fits it to a source line using a nonlinear weighting. I'm currently using SciLab with it's 'optim' and 'splin' function to do this, but now I need to write some embeddable C++ code. The 'splin' function is obvious -- it generates a spline from a number of inflection points. The 'optim' function as I am using it uses a quasi-Newton method, which is working just fine for me. Before I go and write this stuff up by hand, does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find example code to do this? I'm mostly concerned with the optimization -- I'd like to get my hands on something where some one else has already fallen into the pitfalls. TIA. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Posting from Google? See http://cfaj.freeshell.org/google/ "Applied Control Theory for Embedded Systems" came out in April. See details at http://www.wescottdesign.com/actfes/actfes.html Just a remark : there is a lsq_splin function which try to fit a splin to discrete points (with various weight if needed). May be it can help you at least to find a good starting point for your optimization ? hth Bruno Tim Wescott wrote: > I've got this really cool application that makes a smoothed line using > splines, then fits it to a source line using a nonlinear weighting.

Having this description column in a table "Cookies, peanut butter sandwich, regular" When using this WHERE clause: WHERE (((Food_Data.Description) Like "*Butter*" & "*Peanut*")); I dont get any results, however when using it this way round WHERE (((Food_Data.Description) Like "*Peanut*" & "*Butter*")); I get the row as expected. I assume that the query looks for them in order. Is there a way i can get around this and make the query search for both keywords no matter which order i ype them in.

The query looks for a string that matches the pattern "*Peanut**Butter*", so obviously it's not going to match "Butter Peanut".

No difference that I know of ... SAS has all sorts of things you can use as operators.

what's this? '->'

There is no$something = new ClassName, so This is what I figure. Its been a while since I cooded PHP and have never seen this.

(patch for Bash) 'vcat', 'vset', 'vfile'
These 3 builtin commands are designed to "dump" and "reload" shell variables to/from file, without going through another layer of interpretation or parsing. In addition to reading/writing simple string for ordinary shell variable, the commands can handle positional parameters and array variables (both index and values). vcat [-0A] [name] > file Writes a shell variable NAME to stdout (inverse of 'vset'). If NAME is missing, then positional parameters are printed. Each value of array elements and positional parameters is terminated by '\0', whereas ordinary shell variable is not \0-terminated unless option -0 is given. By default, only the array values are printed, but option -A will print the array index as well. vset [-0A] [name] < file Assigns a shell variable NAME from stdin (inverse of 'vcat'). If NAME is missing, then positional parameters are set. If input data contains '\0', then it is considered array, and NAME will be converted to array variable. By default, only array values are set, but option -A will set the array index as well. If there is only one string with trailing '\0', then option -0 will set it to regular shell variable. vfile -[rw] [-d dir] [-0A] name... Read (-r) or write (-w) shell variables from/to files of the same name. Internally, it uses 'vcat' and 'vset', so full array content is preserved. vcat [-0A] name > name vset [...

from 'image' to 'varbinary(max)'
Hi I moved to SQL Server 2005 (from 2000) and noticed there is a better variable to deal with binary arrays. I hava a table that hold 9 columns of images (BLOB). each array has a different size and can be larger than 4k. I've changed the column data type from image to varbinary(max). After the chnage, the size of the table grew from 22MB to 26MB. Any idea why? I though the new variable should be better. I have another table where there are 3 columns with binaries, the size of the arrays there is much smaller and vary from 32bytes to 150bytes long. when I changed the data type to varbinary the size of the table shrunk by half!! now I'm completely confused...

I though the new variable should be better. varbinary(MAX) is better than image, because you can work with just like you work with regular varbinary, while image has a lot of restrictions and drives you to complex operations like READTEXT and WRITETEXT. I can't tell why your table increased in size, but since 26 MB is still a small table, I would not bother. -- Erl...
