Sculpting text with regex, grep, sed and awk Theory: Regular languages Many tools for searching and sculpting text rely on a pattern language known as regular expressions. The theory of regular languages underpins regular expressions. (Caveat: Some modern "regular" expression systems can describe irregular languages, which is why the term "regex" is preferred for these systems.) Regular languages are a class of formal language equivalent in power to those recognized by deterministic finite automata (DFAs) and nondeterministic finite automata (NFAs). [See my post on converting regular expressions to NFAs.] In formal language theory, a language is a set of strings. For example, {"foo"} and {"foo", "foobar"} are formal (if small) languages. (Mathematicians don't typically put quotes around a string, preferring to let the fixed-width typewriter font distinguish it as one, but I'm guessing that programmers are more comfortable with the quotes around strings.) In regular language theory, there are two atomic languages: Useful grep flags The +? #!

Create Your Own Smartphone App With Infinite Monkeys – No Coding Knowledge Required It would be great if we all had the time, skills, and patience to learn computer coding, especially since technology pervades so many areas of our life. But thankfully, there are applications and web developers out there who provide ways for the rest of us to produce apps with little or no coding skills. Back in June, I reviewed one such web application called Buzztouch, which is designed to allow anyone to create their own smartphone application. Now a similar program has just been released called Infinite Monkeys, a web-based tool geared toward niche communities who want to share content on the iPhone and Android platforms. Infinite Monkeys is not as polished theme wise as Buzztouch, but unlike the latter, Infinite Monkeys, says the developers, “Is completely web-based, and works on any computer or tablet device. Web-based GUI Infinite Monkeys provides three different app platform models, ranging from free to the pro level version of $499. Building An App Core Content Publishing App

Change the Windows 7 Login Screen Background Image When you login to your Windows 7 computer (assuming you haven’t used something like this tutorial to turn on automatic login), you’ll generally see a login window with a background looking something like this. It’s fine; there’s nothing wrong with it. But sometimes a change is good so in this article we’ll show you how to change the background image behind the login screen to anything you want. The first step is to open up the Start Menu by clicking the orb in the lower left corner of the screen. Now, in the Start Menu search box, type regedit, to open up the Registry Editor. When the Registry Editor appears in the Start Menu, click the Enter key to launch it. Now, right-click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, and choose the Find option. The search window will appear so perform a search for OEMBackground. Note: it’s possible that OEMBackground doesn’t exist on your system; if this is the case, adding a new DWORD value with the name of OEMBackground will fix things.

The Hacker Manifesto by +++The Mentor+++ Written January 8, 1986 Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"... Damn kids. But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? I am a hacker, enter my world... Mine is a world that begins with school... Damn underachiever. I'm in junior high or high school. Damn kid. I made a discovery today. Damn kid. And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. Damn kid. You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. Yes, I am a criminal. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto.
