I have inherited a fairly large project comprised of HTML and about 20 JavaScript modules.  It would really help if there was a utility out there that can build a cross reference of the JavaScript to ease the pain of getting a handle on them.  It would additionally be nice of the utility or another utility would allow be to cull out the not used functions.
Is there a tool and can acquire that detects memory leaks in Classic ASP applications?

Following the articles here: https://echo.co/blog/os-x-1010-yosemite-local-development-environment-apache-php-and-mysql-homebrew

Under the Apache heading, when It's time to configure a vHost, these were the instructions:

(export USERHOME=$(dscl . -read /Users/`whoami` NFSHomeDirectory | awk -F"\: " '{print $2}') ; cat > ~/Sites/httpd-vhosts.conf <<EOF
# Listening ports.
#Listen 8080  # defined in main httpd.conf
Listen 8443
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
NameVirtualHost *:8080
NameVirtualHost *:8443
# Set up permissions for VirtualHosts in ~/Sites
<Directory "${USERHOME}/Sites">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    <IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
        Require all granted
    <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
# For http://localhost in the users' Sites folder
<VirtualHost _default_:8080>
    ServerName localhost
    DocumentRoot "${USERHOME}/Sites"
<VirtualHost _default_:8443>
    ServerName localhost
    Include "${USERHOME}/Sites/ssl/ssl-shared-cert.inc"
    DocumentRoot "${USERHOME}/Sites"
# VirtualHosts
## Manual VirtualHost template for HTTP and HTTPS
#<VirtualHost *:8080>
#  ServerName project.dev
#  CustomLog "${USERHOME}/Sites/logs/project.dev-access_log" combined
#  ErrorLog "${USERHOME}/Sites/logs/project.dev-error_log"
#  DocumentRoot "${USERHOME}/Sites/project.dev"

I would like to extract the volume id which is associated with the location /dev/sdf

My script outputs the following:

/dev/sdf        vol-606f548d
/dev/sdb         vol-5e6c89b2
/dev/sda1      vol-046c89e8

I would like to pipe it to sed or perl to extract this ouput:


I got as far as this:

my_command | sed -n '/sdf/p'

but this gives me the whole line:
/dev/sdf      vol-606f548d


I was looking for an open source editing tool like this one that I can use inside my textarea element in my jQuery UI dialog

Any suggestion?

I am building a small tool that will be enable to parse data that should be sent to a printer (coming from serial port), a sort of virtual printer.

Are there any kind of dev tools that will allow me to prepare my enviroment for testing and analysis without having a physical printer to do the tests?

I'd need something like a virtual printer connected to a serial port so I can listen to that port with python and see data coming...
Hi all!

I would like to build a tool with Python that allows me to show on the screen multiple static ads / videos (the screen can be divided in 4, 5, 7 parts or similar).

The application will run on a Raspberry Pi connected to the tv and it will simple show the content of a specific folder (I'll put there 1.jpg, 2.3gp, 4.png and so on and those will populate the slices of monitor available)

Which kind of tool you suggest me to learn and use for the job?


I recently installed VS 2013 on my new, very fast, laptop. When debugging everything gets to be very slow:
First of all the debugging as such is slow takes for ever for the step tools to be available and then it's very slow to move from row to row.
After I stopped debugging VS is so slow that a restart of it is the only option.

I of course looked in to this to find different solutions:
I've enabled Just my code in Options/Debugging
Debug 1
I've also added a special caching library for and told it only to download specified modules (and that is empty).
Debug 2I've also clicked the Load all symbols button when it's in debug mode.

I've checked the checkbox "Require source files to exactly match..."

Still it's extremely slow.

If someone has some advice to offer I would be most grateful!


I have around 1300 documents in a database which i need to extract and save to a folder.

This database is connected to a system and it is posssible to open each document and save it that way, but due to the quantity i was wondering if there was a tool to collect these documents automatically?

Any help would be appreciated,

Hi All, I am new to JMeter and trying to do a relatively simple task in a Beanshell Sampler.
I have a loop that is going to evaluate a variable 'Size' and I want the loop to break off when Size is 0. In a Rest call, I execute an XPath query to extract values and they are returned to a variable QSize_<x>.
In my Beanshell, I want to evaluate all QSize variables, when any one of these variables is not 0, I will assign it to Size then break out of the for loop in the beanshell. If all are 0, then I want to set Size to 0 to break the While loop. Below is my script:
import org.apache.jmeter.util.JMeterUtils;
boolean foundValue=false;
for(int i=0;i<${QSize_matchNr};i++)
     String test=JMeterUtils.getProperty("QSize_"+ i,"-1");
      if (new Integer(test).intValue() > 0)
          print("**********Size at index " + i + " is " + test);
          JMeterUtils.setProperty("Size", test);
          foundValue = true;

if (!foundValue)
    JMeterUtils.setProperty("Size", "0");

I am getting the following error:

2015/05/05 09:46:56 ERROR - jmeter.util.BeanShellInterpreter: Error invoking bsh method: eval      Sourced file: inline evaluation of: ``import org.apache.jmeter.util.JMeterUtils; boolean foundValue=false; for(int i=0 . . .

I have been working through some tutorials with Angular that involve a Web API and Web Site.  Unfortunately,  I cannot delete the web site and create it again without it name it SomeWebName (2).  I have deleted all files, cleared my browser, but still I cannot name the new Webite "SomeWebName"  without Visual Studio adding the "(2)" which is surely some persisted previous version.  Additionall I am finding that JavaScript that I change seems to not show the change on runs "as though it is also persisted".  

I need to clear my cache of JavaScript and clean out references to that old Web Site "SomeWebName" .  If there are any stable tools and/or scripts or commands to accomplish these tasks,  it would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know the correct forum to submit a question about building an app for tablets?
If i'm in the right place, then this is my question:

I need to build an app to help me sort my files on a large tablet. I'm a beginner at app building so i need some really basic guidance.

I don't need the app to manipulate my current system files, i'm just looking for developing a system that helps me manage all my jobs into different categories such as :

1) preliminary review set
2) building review set
3) bid set
4) filing set
5) construction set

The idea is that when a job is at a certain stage of development it gets put into a certain category and this ultimately triggers an action in the form of an email such as : "need to bill the client for 30% of contract fee".
so basically i am dropping and dragging a job into a specific category.

Right now my system is this: a bunch of folders all over my office with post-its on them reminding me at what stage the job is at and so i know how much to bill the client.

The app I build can be either for iPad, Android or Windows but keep in mind i would like it to be on a large tablet, bigger than the current iPads size.

Thank you
Dear Sirs,
I am looking for a component or a tool that supports command line, and does not require BDE or ODBC set up, to convert paradox table to CSV, XML or SQL script.

Hello guys,

I want to ask what is the most effective way moving a WP site between:

1. local server (I use XAMP)

2. testing server on my domain

3. client's server

I've done pure front-end only to this time but I started to learn how WP (client's just want it so bad) works and some basic php which would totally be enough for my side jobs (microsites).

Main issue is that DB migration. Doing it manually is kind of pain so how do you guys do it? How do you develope a WP site if you just want to make a some changes to the theme (via child theme) and be time efficient?

Disclaimer: "I do know only a bit about DB".
I have an installation of Visual Studio 2013 update 4 that crashes whenever we try to build or rebuild a project.
This is the error message from the Windows application log:

Attached is an email file that contains an inline image encoded in base 64.  I would like to know what I would need to do to save the html content and related image file so they would render in a standard web browser?  HTMMAIL-121222.txt

Thanks for your help.

I have VS2013 and I'm considering using Xamarin and Apache Cordova to develop a small Mobile app that would allow users to enter data into a small form and then submits to either SharePoint 2013 or to a MS Sql server database.

This will be my first mobile app and I would like to know if this is a good choice of tool to use.  I will need to support ios and adroid. The advantage is that I'm familiar with VS IDE but I would like some input on if this not a good choice or tool or whatever.  Thank you.

Remind me, what is the best tool to export the contents of an exe?

I would like to build a small application that will allow users to upload a photo (or take one from heir phone / tablet) and overlay on the taken pic an image and allow users to define position of this image, size, rotation and blend.

I know python, html5, css, jquery and php.

Are those languages suit for the job?

Can you please suggest any plugins / widget / frameworks that will allow me to get the job done?

The application should work on linux / windows / mac / mobile devices so I think a web application would be the best idea...

Thanks for your time.
I have a nightly job from another system that drops a new folder on a share with the name "archive_YYYY-MM-DD".

I found some cool code that will find the most recent folder in a specific directory, but I also need to filter on name.

Can anybody help me tweak this code to return the most recent folder with the name "archive_"? There are other folders that get created in that share, and so sometimes this code will pick the wrong folder I need because some other process wrote  newer folder.

public void Main()
    Variables varCollection = null;

    Dts.VariableDispenser.GetVariables(ref varCollection);

    string rootFolder = varCollection["User::RootFolder"].Value.ToString();
    DateTime previousFolderTime = DateTime.MinValue;
    string recentFolder = string.Empty;

    foreach (string subFolder in System.IO.Directory.GetDirectories(rootFolder))
        DateTime currentFolderTime = System.IO.Directory.GetCreationTime(subFolder);
        if (previousFolderTime == DateTime.MinValue || previousFolderTime <= currentFolderTime)
            previousFolderTime = currentFolderTime;
            recentFolder = subFolder;

    varCollection["User::RecentFolder"].Value = recentFolder;

    Dts.TaskResult = (int)ScriptResults.Success;
