sep:software:ratfor90 [Stanford Exploration Project] You can download ratfor90 from here. Introduction/Description “Ratfor” is a dialect of Fortran that is more concise than raw Fortran. The newest Ratfor “compiler”, ratfor90 is a simple preprocesor program written in Perl that inputs an attractive Fortran-like dialect and outputs Fortran90. Mainly, the preprocessor produces Fortran statements like ” end do ”, “end if”, “end program”, and “end module”, from the Ratfor ”}”. Ratfor source is about 25-30% smaller than the equivalent Fortran making it equivalently more readable. Tracker Basics - GHOSTERY Chances are, you visit a huge array of different websites every day. What you might not know is that while you do that, there is an “invisible web” at work: companies are following your activities, collecting your data, and using it in various ways. They do it through technology known as “trackers.” There are thousands of such trackers from different companies, and they are active all the time, even though you don’t see their activity and may not be aware of what’s happening. This is true on the websites you visit from desktop or laptop computers, and on mobile apps as well. Trackers are neither inherently good nor inherently bad — they are a fact of life and their purposes vary widely, from the helpful to the potentially creepy.
vCard 3.0 format specification « www.evenx.com QR Code Generator 2.1.0 now supports vCard format 3.0. Here we will describe the specifications and give some examples. Specification: A vCard contains one ore more vCard objects. The content of one vCard object is encompassed within BEGIN:VCARD and END:VCARD. All vCards must contain the VERSION property, directly after the BEGIN tag. ometa/ OMeta is a new object-oriented language for pattern matching. It is based on a variant of Parsing Expression Grammars (PEGs) which we have extended to handle arbitrary data types. OMeta's general-purpose pattern matching facilities provide a natural and convenient way for programmers to implement tokenizers, parsers, visitors, and tree transformers, all of which can be extended in interesting ways using familiar object-oriented mechanisms. I am about to release a new version of OMeta/Squeak. Read all about it (and download the release candidate) here. Documentation
My experience with Toon Boom Studio Over the last week or so, I had the chance to play around with ToonBoom Studio, which is a software for creating graphics and animations using a large range of techniques. I won’t start to enumerate the whole feature set, which you can see in the video tour, or the detailed features list. However, I will talk about my own experiences with the software, about what I was able to do and of course about integrating it with XNA. The first thing that needs to be said is the ToonBoom is not just a software for drawing images, but has features designed specifically for creating animations, which lack in other drawing packages such as Photoshop, GIMP, or Paint.Net. So because they serve different purposes, you can’t directly compare Toon Boom with these tools.
Lua Implementations LuaDirectory > LuaAddons > LuaImplementations There are quite a few reimplementations of Lua. The simplicity of Lua is a factor in this. XNA Resources A Better Animated Sprite Note: This tutorial series has been updated for XNA 4.0 In reality, the only thing that needed to be changed for 4.0 is the removal of the parameter from SpriteBatch.Begin() as alpha blending is now the default and the parameter order for the call has changed in XNA 4.0 In the Star Defense tutorial series, we created a simple AnimatedSprite class, which worked well for our purposes in that particular game, but it could be vastly improved upon to be made more useful in general. That will be the subject of this tutorial.
