The problem is that brew puts everything in a directory called Cellar and installs everything there even if you have the program installed somewhere else.
For example, I have installed python on my Mac, nevertheless brewer installed it again under Cellar. Quite strange I think! So, given this, how can I "force" pyqt to use my original qt installation ?
So, given this, how can I "force" pyqt to use my original qt installation ?
I did not know the answer. But as already said I guess that it is already using the existing Qt libraries by looking in the common library directories.
It would also depend on the installation order when using brew. If you have installed Qt after PyQt, PyQt would not know where to look for Qt.
I have no Mac here and can't tyr it out. Why not just write a simple "Helle World" Python application using PyQt and check if it works. If so, you can try later to find out how to configure for using specific libraries.
I'm Aware of this, so I can decide whether to allow virtual or not.
There are "hardware fingerprints" available even in VM's (apparently).
That is not clear for me how this should work. I need to investigate more on this.[Edit]In case you mean a Fingerprint of the of the underlying machine I see a Problem:
a.) Some of our customers do move the virtual machines frequently from one physical Server to another (because of securtity reasons, whatelse? I don't know it exactly).
What about Azure?
No idea about it at the Moment and I think also not a solution for some of our conservative customer.
Thank you a gain very much.
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
What programming language would I use if I want to write a robot that is able to visit regular webpages and extract and collect information from them? Some examples would be to find out what days a hotel (that doesn't have a calendar view) offers the cheapest stays, go inside several threads on forum and collect all text (so I can search for specific key words), or collect pictures from an advertising website so I can see the items quickly without having to click on each ad. So, the robot needs to be able click on buttons/links, change comboxes, etc as well as collecting the information in the webpage. What IDE would I use, can I use Visual Studio?
Noting of course that I would suspect that you will find that there are already a number of libraries out there that do most of that.
So deciding what features you need, both for the scanner and for the rest of your application, and THEN go look for a library and other technologies to match that would be best.
And in general this sort of question is almost always answered by "the one you have the most familarity with." Because creating a brand new system with all brand new technologies might be fun but it is not the best way successfully create such a system nor to create one that actually makes money.
I would like to develop a CAD-like GUI for microelectronics.
My first problem is how to design the main screen. Like any software of this kind, you have simply a background where you can put objects. Usually, this background is black or white, it has a grid and you can zoom in/out. (Please check any spice simulator)
Initially, I thought of using some kind of language from Microsoft Visual Studio suite. It allows to do forms, menus, buttons, etc, but it would be slow after adding all the functionalities (I guess).
What's the best programming language and graphical engine to do this?
Well I am an old guy and have been programming for ages. The language is not really my problem. What I don't know is how to do graphics programming using an engine and which are the languages that will result in a fast piece of software.
