MATLAB and Octave

MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. GNU Octave is a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a command-line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB.

R and S-PLUS

R is a programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R is an implementation of the S programming language combined with lexical scoping semantics inspired by Scheme. S is a statistical programming language developed primarily by John Chambers and (in earlier versions) Rick Becker and Allan Wilks of Bell Laboratories. S-PLUS is […]

Vintage Computer Programming Book Market About To Explode!

Last week I was day-dreaming about Forth and vintage computers again. Same old day-dreams. The TI-99/4A with TurboForth seems like the perfect place to start learning about both. TurboForth has lots of features and it runs in emulators and “on the metal”. Cool. The best way to learn Forth is interactively. How do you do […]

You Probably Want org-return-indent Bound to Return

Started questioning why after hitting RETURN while in lists I have to hit TAB to get indented properly. Kind of a dead giveaway that I should be return-and-indenting! Looked at org-return to find that it has an argument about indenting and then saw that org-return-indent passes it for you. With that in mind, RETURN is […]

A FORTH on a TV Dream Machine

The desire to build my own personal computer has been growing. My requirements are non-existent. That has never stopped anyone before, right? Not going down to the silicon, it seemed the making it inexpensive and FORTH driven would be the best approach. Using nothing more than a television and a keyboard also seemed like a […]

Concatenating Media Files

Here is how to join media files with ffmpeg. Create a file mylist.txt with all the files you want to have concatenated in the following form (lines starting with a # are ignored): # this is a comment file ‘/path/to/file1′ file ‘/path/to/file2′ file ‘/path/to/file3′ Note that these can be either relative or absolute paths. Then […]
