Programming with Motif™ by Keith D. Gregory

By Keith D. Gregory

About this booklet This ebook is a close advent to programming with the OSF /MotifI'M graphical consumer interface. it really is an creation in that it doesn't require the reader to have adventure programming within the X Window atmosphere. it truly is special in that it teaches you the way to exploit the interface parts supplied via Motif in a fancy software. even though it features a good deal of reference fabric, it isn't intended as an authoritative reference - that's the activity of the OSF/Motif Programmer's Reference, which makes use of over 900 pages within the technique. as a substitute, this ebook presents its reference fabric in a realistic, "how to" demeanour and permits the reader to take advantage of the Programmer's Reference successfully. the objective reader is an skilled C programmer and person of the X Window method below the UNIX working process. 'the reader can be acquainted with the instruments supplied by means of UNIX for the compilation and checking out of courses; whereas this booklet does study the method in which a Motif application is compiled, it doesn't clarify that technique. It additionally assumes that the reader is aware "x" phrases resembling 'pointer' and 'display'.

Constraint Databases

This e-book is the 1st entire survey of the sphere of constraint databases. Constraint databases are a pretty new and energetic quarter of database examine. the most important inspiration is that constraints, akin to linear or polynomial equations, are used to symbolize huge, or perhaps endless, units in a compact method.

Principles of Program Analysis

Software research makes use of static ideas for computing trustworthy information regarding the dynamic habit of courses. purposes contain compilers (for code improvement), software program validation (for detecting mistakes) and ameliorations among info illustration (for fixing difficulties equivalent to Y2K). This publication is exclusive in offering an outline of the 4 significant techniques to application research: information move research, constraint-based research, summary interpretation, and kind and impact structures.

R for Cloud Computing: An Approach for Data Scientists

R for Cloud Computing appears to be like at the various initiatives played by way of company analysts at the computer (PC period) and is helping the person navigate the wealth of data in R and its 4000 programs in addition to transition an identical analytics utilizing the cloud. With this data the reader can decide upon either cloud proprietors and the occasionally complicated cloud surroundings in addition to the R programs which may support method the analytical projects with minimal attempt, rate and greatest usefulness and customization.

The family field specifies the font family; it is one field that is never wildcarded. As of Release 3, supported families were charter, courier, helvetica, new centu ry schoolbook, symbo 1, and times. Release 4 added 1uci da, 1uci da bri ght, and 1 uci da typewri ter, but the list is subject to change, depending on your vendor. Your server may include families not shown here, or it may not contain all of those shown (although the list given is fairly representative). The weight field specifies whether the font should be boldfaced or not.

World" using a different font Hello) World! Fonts Then and Now One of the advances of XII Release 3 was the addition of font families. In Release 2 and before. fonts had simple names like vg-25 or sans12. The fonts you had depended on the server you were using: some simply used the MIT fonts. some used a subset.

Wrtting A Motif Program 31 its parent is realized. This means that you could realize appshell immediately after creating it, and all of its descendents would be realized as they are managed. 6 Tfie drawback to this approach is lower efficiency: realizing all widgets in one step results in less client-server communication than realizing each widget as it is managed. The Event Loop This is the stage where a program spends most of its time. 5, is typically the last statement in a program's rna in function.
