Programming :: MATLAB - Any Valid Free Alternatives?

Mar 2, 2010

I need MatLab for a course at the university, but it's not an open source software as all of you know, so I wanted to know if there are valid freeware alternatives. I was told to use Octave or Scilab if I didn't want to buy the license and so I would like to know what's better in terms of MatLab compatibility and ease of use, if there are any other (and maybe better) alternatives and also if there are free Simulink-like programs.

Programming :: MATLAB - How To Write Cleaner Code

Apr 28, 2011

I am writing some code in matlab and I would like to do some reading of how to write cleaner code and how to name variables and write comments. One more questions. Let's say that I find for example a file that has really nice structured comments. For example specific format commenting function inputs, outputs author code. Can afterwards copy and paste and use someone's comments format or this is might some copyright problem?

Programming :: Pthreads Return Value Valid Or Not

Jun 14, 2010

I have confusion regarding pthreads return value. All in short, is the is a valid return value ?

void * myThrRoutine(void *arg)
struct myStruct **myst = (struct myStruct**) arg;
cout<<"In thread "<<(*myst)->var<<(*myst)->msg<<endl;
int x = 20;

This seems to work fine on pthread_join , but I want to ensure it is not by chance.

Dec 28, 2010

I learned Java(SE,EE) few years ago and didn't use it because we are using PHP and ASP.NET at work.However, I would like to ask a question: Is Java (SE,EE) free for use for business purpose?I mean,if I start up a company and use tomcat with java, do I have to pay for the license to use Java?I don't know much about java license until I learned that ASF(Apache Software Foundation) quited from the Java Community recently.As a result,they recalled my attention regarding the legitimacy of using java in business purpose for free.

Programming :: Combine 40 Different Mount Points Into One Bytes Free/used Number?

Feb 18, 2011

We have a program that catalogs to 40 different mount points. The program is fine as long as thier is free space on at least one of the 40 mount points. My boss wants me to come up with a script that will email us daily to know how much overall free space is left. I know I can do a df but I don't know how to combine the 40 mount points into a single disk used/disk free report.

The 40 mount points are /dev/mapper/areaxx, xx being 01 to 40.

Programming :: Quick Measurement Of Free System Memory From Within C Program

Jul 21, 2010

I need to monitor the amount of free physical memory on Linux from within a large C program. The sampling will occur very frequently, so the measurement cannot be performance intensive. The fact that Linux uses much of the theoretically free memory for cache and buffers means that just measuring the free pages is not sufficient. Using free + cache + buffers gives an overestimate as not all cache/buffers can be freed, but I could get a rough idea of how much generally can't and subtract that from the answer.

Possible options that I've come across so far are: Parsing /proc/meminfo - but that involves reading from file which is slow. Extracting the free, cache and buffers values from the output of the Free command - but is there a quick way to do this? Parsing the /proc/freemem file produced by the API here - but this is again reading from file. Is there a way to get that output directly? Speed is an extremely high priority, and the answer it must accurately represent the amount of memory that my program could expand into (to within a few Mb).

Programming :: Bash Script To Check How Much Free Space Is Left In /var Directory

Feb 24, 2011

I'm creating a bash script to check how much free space is left in /var directory then, if it hits a certain threshold, delete certain files with numbers for extensions (e.g. fileA.1, fileA.2 fileA.3, and fileA.4, fileB.1, fileB.2 fileB.3, and fileB.4 ). Here's a snippet from my script:


If I use a * as a wildcard for the number extension, the script fails. Maybe regex would work here, but I'm not particularly accomplished at it. Or some other construct.

Server :: Use System Monitor Via A VNC Connection The Free Disk Space Value Is 20GB Free On The Same Volume

May 18, 2011

I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.

Ubuntu Installation :: FREE Support For FREE OS?

Jun 10, 2010

Am I asking too much for a FREE OS? Everybody spend their precious time to help others, that's very helpful.But it seems like there is no support from UBUNTU team,how could we even get through the barrier of not using Microsoft's OSes? No free lunch of course, but it seems to me some issues have never really been solved.I read lot's of people have problem with their WIFI, not just for my OLD USB wifi adapter. I don't have problem with WIFI in XP/Server.

I posted here and there, and seems like no answer, and I do not get any reply from UBUNTU support team,forgive me if I run out of google's keywords.I just need a simple answer, is my WIFI going to work in UBUNTU with a layman effort? I like linux and UBUNTU had put great effort in providing me such a great OS, but if a basic internet connection will need to spent sooo much time to setup, and it still doesn't work. IS IT WORTH to switch to UBUNTU at all

Software :: Getting The Alternatives To OO.o?

Sep 8, 2010

Oracle has left a bad taste in my mouth as of late, and I'm looking to remove any software affiliated with them from my machine. I haven't had any problems in terms of finding replacements until I came to OpenOffice, of which I have been a user for years.

I am aware of the existence of Gnome Office and KOffice and have been tinkering with both, but I am curious as to whether or not anyone here on LQ has found a more suitable replacement.Here's hoping someone forks OO.o before Oracle pulls another stunt.

Fedora :: F15 Gnome3 Alternatives?

Jun 24, 2011

F15 running on my Dell Latitude 505 laptop. During installation (last week) I got "Gnome3 not fully supported - using fallback mode". I found out later that my Intel 855 video doesn't support 3D, which Gnome3 requires.

System seems to run fine and boots into fallback video. But I'd sure like to have access to my "desktop" so I can drag and drop folders, etc. there. Currently I now have to open the Desktop folder, and then drag and drop, etc. And without an "active" desktop screen, added devices (external drives, cameras, etc.) don't show up unless I open the Desktop folder. Is there an alternative to Gnome3 I can install? I assume without the need for 3D which my Intel video 855 doesn't support.

If there's an alternative or two, could someone point me to exactly how to install them? If there's a more appropriate forum here for this request,

Ubuntu :: Alternatives To X11 For System?

Aug 31, 2010

So, are there any alternatives to X for Linux? I often hear about other DEs that run on X11 or X, but I have read here and there that there are some alternatives that have picked up a little steam lately, but I know absolutely nothing about them.

What are these alternatives and how would you go about trying them? Are there any live distros that use anything but X?
