Hi, I want to get some of you hard core coders to give my new Surfulater product a bash. In return everyone that provides any useful feedback, good, bad or otherwise will get a free copy.
In essence Surfulater lets you save information while you are surfing the web, be it selected text and images or complete web pages. It enables you to edit, annotate, cross reference, organize and search for information in its knowledge base. You no longer have to try and remember what web site specific information was on or worry about the site or information disappearing.
See www.surfulater.com[^] for more information. You can download Surfulater by simply registering on our forums or e-mail me for a direct download link.
Well, this is a forum for software developers to find people to help test their software, or to co-develop with them, not for help on linux problems, so posting in a more appropriate forum would be better (and with a more clearly written question - I don't have a clue what you're asking!)
Tipically I use TortoiseCVS when I use cvs in Windows. It has the option of using an RSH/SSH key to authenticate me instead of a password.
I'm trying to get cvs to work on the command line with my private key instead of a password so I can set up a build proccess with little human interaction. I've found the CVS_RSH environment variable and set that to my SSH aplication (TortoisePlink.exe), but I can't seem to be able to pass parameters to it (my private key).
Maybe I should be using a different cvs clien instead of the Tortoise package??
Guys I'm tired of the casino games you pick up at wal-mart... So I'm writing something better. I'm looking for ideas on ways to organize the AI. My experience with AI in college was pretty much limited to the Chess game we programmed. Computer suggests a move and then plays out an artificial game for about 4 moves ahead, repeats this for 3 or 4 possible moves, picks the best choice, and executes.Its a brute method and I'm wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions or could point me to some references.
I don't think the chess analogy will work with Texas Holdem'. There is to much luck involved.
I think I would develop a point scheme:
1) What are the odds that I currently have the best hand?
2) What are the odds that I could make it better?
3) How does the known betting history of my 'in' opponents effect these odds?
4) What is my position in the bettting sequence?
5) How much money do I have in relation to my 'in' opponents?
I would give points to these factors and decide to bet accordingly. I would then adjust the point system until I have achieved an adequate winning ratio. You can even adjust points to emulate different playing styles (beginner, aggresive, conservative, etc.).
PanelRows , rows that behave like panels , where you can place controls
TableRows , like standard grid rows
TabRows , TabStrip container for child rows , each childrowtype will be placed in a separate tab
ShowParentRows , feature to force parent rows to be visible for the first visible row
this makes it possible to always see what data a row belongs to
no editing , selections , sorting or grouping is in place yet.
im currently working on xp and o2003 theme support.
need testers and feedback.
is it a good idea to be able to present data as the panelrows?
what features other than those listed would be good?
1) Does testing by third party will uncover all the errors in the program
No. Nothing uncovers all the errors in the program. If you were to rephrase the question to 'is testing by third party more effective?' then the answer is: 'only if your in-house testing skills are lower than that of the third party'. So look at your skill sets and those of the third party.
2) Does Regression testing helps in removing the undetected errors
I think you want to know if regression testing will help find defects that were missed in system testing. The answer is 'somewhat'. The prime focus of regression testing is to have an economic way to re-assure that the current release didn't break bits in areas other than where you made changes. Regression tests tend to be test cases that had been run in the original system testing. So if regression test cases find bugs it means your maintenance changes had a side effect that you were not aware of. Is this an error that was undetected in system testing? A matter of argument but besides the point.
3) Does Automated tools are the ideal choice in the place of manual testing?
No. Automated tools have their place but they are no replacement of good manual testing. Too many people try to do with manual testing stuff that is better done with automated testing. But inversely there is much that is not well testable in an automated fashion. Specifically in system testing manual testing is more and more effective. This is a long topic so I'll just make a few assertions:
- manual testing discovers more bugs than automated because manual testers are more flexible
- building a robust automated test case takes about 10 times the effort required to do the test case manually - so it is only worth where you would run the test more than 10 times
- building robust automated test cases is a Software Development task. You need to provide the skills, processes and infrastructure to support it. Otherwise you are wasting your money.
Hi I have written a DbfReader and a DbfWriter class to read and write DBASE III IV and IV files using the binary structure of the files. The idea is to be able to deal with DBASE files without the help of any kind of dbms interaction (as you would deal with a CSV file or other delimited file).
I currently have a working version for DBASE III IV and IV.
I would like to extend this to the other versions of DBASE / Foxpro, including the (formerly) borland flavor.
If anyone is interested in helping with this project, or just using or seeing what I've done the VS.NET project and a test app are available at:
You can email me from that site if you want and I'll respond.
Hi folks, I'm an indie programmer, and started a C# project about a year ago. It's a business app. Two old clients (they had my Windows 3.1 version, in Foxpro!) have bought the program, and very competent friends are ready to help market it in its modern form.
If you are good and impressively fast, I would be glad to make a profit-sharing agreement with you. That option is likely to amount to good pay, and a future position that you can do from anywhere. (Yippee!) However, the pay will come in with sales, so it'll take awhile. Alternately, I can pay a fixed amount upon completion -- but only around $5,000. I think we can complete the project in two months.
..to beat the c**p out of my Deluxe Paint clone (especially if you've got experience of working with DPaint - I want to know if I'm getting the look&feel about right!)
It's currently in very early stages, doesn't do a good deal of what DPaint did, but does enough to start painting (and most of the basic drawing tools work)
It's got no ability to load/save images either (but hey, that's what Alt+PrntScrn are there for!!)
Anyway click here[^] to have a look, and if you spot any bugs, or just want to make any comments, there's bug reporting stuff, and forums on it's sourceforge project page (you'll see a link at the top)
Good start to an application you got going there, only suggestion ive got at the mo is to rewrite the fill tool, because it seems to be a little slow. Are you using the Bitmap SetPixel/GetPixel functions?
I use GetPixel to read, but GDI+'s DrawLine to do the painting (unless it's a single pixel) - I know it's far from optimal, but it works, and doesn't make my brain hurt the way the other flood fill algorithms here on CP do. I'll probably optimise it a bit at some point, but my main priority is getting everything working
