My teacher told me, that if we work for someone or some company, to develop their application. The application is to be handed over only, not the source code.
Is it true, that if someone hires me for a one-time software development, that I should only (at the end of the project) hand over the application (in an executable form) and not the source code for the project?
The sh*t I complain about

I take it your teacher has absolutely NO experience in the real world. The answer to this is that it depends entirely on your contract with the client. If your contract states you hand over code, then you hand over code - in fact, if you're a contractor then, chances are, that's what you're handing over.
OK I am stuck again and getting nowhere asking this on Arduino site.
To my best knowledge Arduino application is build using gcc compiler. I know that gcc compiler is passed ton of parameters know how to find out their function / description.
I understand such parameters can be put into a batch file and Arduino folks apparently use plain x.txt file to do just that.
I am LITTLE familiar with .bat files syntax , but have not have any need to use bat files ages.
Now what I DO NOT KNOW how is this batch / platform.txt file is organized, its syntax etc.
<b>Could I get some pointers where to start looking for basic information about usage of txt files in passing parameters to compilers?
I am enclosing the entire platform.txt file in case it would be easier just to annotate it to show me what I am looking at or where to find what particular line is suppose to accomplish.
PS I am basically trying to figure out how is this platform.txt accomplishing the last task - SAM3 Uploader tools, but I want to learn more about the txt batch files usage. I have full access to BOSSAC source on github.
I really appreciate any help. Thanks Vaclav

I have forgotten how to do "Run" / cmd in Widows XP. For whatever reason I could not get the required application window to stay up. So I looked up cmd options and now it stays up( even just "cmd") but won't run the application. I understand that cmd may work differently in different OS, but I think I am missing some spaces or whatever to make it work.
cmd \k E:\Arduino_All\Arduino_160\arduino-nightly\hardware\tools\listComPorts.exe the above just runs cmd
and same here cmd \k "E:\Arduino_All\Arduino_160\arduino-nightly\hardware\tools\listComPorts.exe"
I don't get any errors, just plain cmd reply - Windows version. The app file exists.
Any help would be appreciated, in the meantime I'll try different combinations of " and spaces.
That was so easy - there is a "standard" Windows listComPorts and it is pretty given that anybody smart would not reinvent the wheel and use it to fill combo box. So just because listComPorts found the port it does not mean that the application using it can connect to it. Cheers Vaclav
I have never done this , so I am totally lost. I just need some guidance, explanation of steps / concept from source files to x.exe.
( I am not sure for what to google )
I am guessing I need to somehow use "make". I got all source files and have used dsp dsw in past, but I am not sure how to get there. I managed to "build "makefile.dsw" but that where I am stuck. I obviously need x.exe. So how do I get there from makefile.dsw? Thanks Vaclav
Most packages will come with configuration/build instructions included, so you should read those in the first instance. If all that is provided is a bunch of source files with no instructions and no control files, then you will have to deduce it from the source, and destination systems. If it's destined for Windows then you can import the files into a Visual Studio project, which will do most of the work for you. If it's destined for Unix then you will need to create a make file, or run manual compile and link processes. Without more information it's difficult to suggest what is best.
After unzipping the whole github ( I really do no know what to call it) I ended up wiht several directories , inclunding "install", src and makefile file. I guess I'll just import the source , as suggested, and build / compile it and watch for smoke. Thanks
That seems like a very bad idea. If you cannot understand the structure of the package or how it should be built you are just likely to end up with a total mess. And if it includes an install and makefile, then chances are that you will definitely need to run make to build it. I would suggest you go back to where you got it from and find out exactly what it is you are trying to build.
I am actually finding ways to resolve my issue without rebuilding the BOSSAC application. But knowing how to get stuff from github will be handy. I was actually curious - some coders add "readme" to help to navigate thru the repository. This one is pretty cryptic IMHO. It always makes me wonder why people publish code for public benefit ( I assume , why else it is publicly accessible ) and are so stingy with comments and "briefs" how it suppose to function. But some do not forget to add " if you modify it , quote the source" stuff. O well. Thanks Vaclav
I have VS 2013 Express installed under Windows 7 SP1, with no problems. You will need to collect some more information for people to help you. Try checking the system event logs, or any files left over from the installation process.
I wrote a C++ program and use WINIO to control some general I/O interface card. However, when I run the program under Win8.1, WinIO initialization error always prompt out. Then, I put the same program under Win8.0, there is not any error prompts.
Would there be anyone who understand what's the reason?
I am looking for someone with a lot of experience with Windows Remote Desktop Connection to answer a basic question or two...
I have a WireShark capture (only one side) which shows 880 MBytes sent from the client running the Remote Desktop Connection, to the host; but I have no WireShark capture of the packet volume coming from the host to the client IP address. The capture is for a period spanning 32 hours. I am being asked to and determine the amount of data that might have been sent from the host to the client... I know this is a real out there question; which is why I'm looking for someone with real Remote Desktop Connection experience.
I assume that of the volume of traffic from the client to the host is 880MBytes over 32 hours; is there any way at all of guessing how much might have been sent from the host to the client?
Please be kind, this is important and I am presenting all of the information I have.
I do not fully understand the point.
Do you need a method for measuring the traffic in both directions somewhen in future experiments? Then I'd suggest: can't WireShark do that?
Or do you want to "guess" the traffic based on the measurement of the opposite direction only? There is no way to get that.
