Dear experts,

Can anyone point to any online site which can has c/c++/Python programs written/used for Financial Engineering.

The idea is show the content/calculations involved in Financial Engineering to my tutor who can then teach me leading to building my fundamentals.

My tutors teaches for Engineering college students and may not have the orientation of Financial Engineering programming features/calculations.

Kindly guide.

Thank you

Hello, I am a beginner in Python and I started about a week ago.  I would like to continue with Python, but there is a problem: I successfully added Python to path, so I could open MS Powershell and then type py to get started with some features like downloading modules with pip.  As I was told, I need to add pip to my path too and make a new environment variable. I copied the exact location of the file in this way C:\Users\Myname\Downloads\get-pip (get-pip was name of the file after download). I also tried C:\Users\Myname\Downloads\ Both of these options did not work. Then I thought that I didn't download it correctly. So I started as they wrote on their official website. After the first step MS Powershell showed me the following Error:
curl : Požadavek byl přerušen: Nelze vytvořit zabezpečený kanál SSL/TLS..
At line:1 char:1
+ curl -o
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-WebRequest], WebExc
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeWebRequestCommand
I use Windows 10. I would be very pleased, if you would answer me. If any additional information is needed,just tell me , I will try to do my best to provide it.
Anyone used to generate code and export it to be used in a programming project for the HTML and CSS?

Do you recommend it? Does it export bloated code? Can you pick through it and get to the important things? I didn't like the HTML code generators in the past due to bloated code and want to confirm that it is actually a good code generator.


I am working of getting the output sent to a printer to print correctly.

The application transfer the file directly to the printer, so there is no printer driver directly involved (driver is built in to the application).

I have a report that I want to print from this application.

When I use pdf, the report is not properly centered on the page - left margin is much smaller than right margin. Changing the pdf configuration setting directly in the printer to "scale to fit" improves the results, but still not centered properly.

If PCL is used for printing, the output is properly centers, but the last line of the page is truncated. (cut). Again it looks like the document is not properly centered lengthwise on the paper.

It does not matter if pcl or pdf is used to print the document. What is important is the the data be properly centered, both vertically and horizontally.

Does PCL have a command to automatically scale to fit that I can insert within the document or is there a better way to accomplish this with pdf as source?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We are using a LexmarkMX611de


FILE *fp;
	if ((fp = fopen("map.bin", "rb")) == NULL) {
		puts("Unable to open file.");
	float mapLenght, alt;
		if (fread(&mapLenght, sizeof(float), 1, fp) != 1) {
			puts("Unable to read from file.");
		if (fread(&alt, sizeof(float), 1, fp) != 1) {
			puts("Unable to read from file.");
	//Now that the 2 floats are out of the way, I can start reading objects from the file.
	char *mapTerrain = (char *)calloc(mapLenght, sizeof(char));
	while (1) {
		if (fread(&Node, sizeof(struct Node), 1, fp) != 1) {
			printf("fread: %d\n", fread(&Node, sizeof(struct Node), 1, fp)); //this bit right here is problematic
			puts("Unable to read from file.");
	*mapTerrain = Node.terrainType;
	puts("Terrain type map: ");
	while (*mapTerrain) {
		printf("[%c]", *mapTerrain);


Open in new window

Task is to display a map. A binary file begins with 2 floats and continues with objects of this format:
struct Node {
	float height;
	int terrainType;
	float visitsCount;
	struct Node *next;

Open in new window

The function reads the first 2 floats just fine, but when it comes reading the objects, it fails for some reason, it reads 0 objects.

Dear EE experts,

Good day! We would like to ask for tech support regarding to SharePoint Designer 2007,
where is lookup in sharepoint designer 2007 workflow actions?
We would like to add a Lookup <xxxxx> property for <xxxxxxx>, but we couldn't find that Lookup action.
Please see the attached screenshot...
We couldn't continue to move on to another step as we don't know where's that "Lookup".

The problem is, we reinstalled everything, we have a running workflow before but the person who developed that program wasn't here anymore, so after we reinstalled that MOSS 2007, and about to re-create that workflow, we got stucked on that part...

Thank you and hope to hear for possible solutions regarding this matter...

What are my options for creating a PDF file from my WebApi2... initiated from my SPA using Sencha ExtJs? The concept is I want to have a template in PDF with a grid, and based on user selection from my front end website, fill in the grid with data from my database. I'm not looking for someone to write code for me, just for a path to go down. I am open to suggestions so if a template is too complex I am open to creating the PDF from stratch every time. Whichever is the least complicated option as I am definitely no expert.

I am configuring the Search feature in SharePoint 2016 standard. I have created a search service and search center for results. I also configured the source content and the crawl schedule. However, when I start the indexing process to crawl SharePoint it never progresses past "Starting". It is in a perpetual state of starting and I have been unsuccessful at locating information on resolving this issue and completing a crawl. I have a cmd that will stop the crawl but then it switches over to a perpetual state of stopping and never goes back to idle. Has anyone else ever encountered this issue and know how to resolve it? Thanks for any help!

How to create a cross platform application in java like ambar cloud ??

I went through the ambar cloud - open source search engine ( and and astonished at his amazing features.

I would like to build the similar one in java and not sure which tech stack i need to choose and what would be the design and what are the third party libraries might required to built it

Can some java experts help me with suggestions, comments and design and help ?
I am seeking a script that will do the following:

Take a file folder and rename it to a common standard across the entire organization.
Take each file within a folder and rename it to a common standard using the existing file name.

I actually have the file folder portion completed, as the powershell

Get-ChildItem -Filter "*current*" -Recurse | Rename-Item -NewName {$ -replace 'current','old' }

However, the issue is that the file names used are all over the board.  Examples, amongst a horde of others:

Christopher, Jack 4.2014
Christopher, Jack 042014
Christopher Jack 04-02-2014
Jack Christopher April 2014

What I would like to do is implement a standard of:

JChristopher 042014

So the script should look at the entire file name and then rename it accordingly.

Yes.  There are subfolders sometimes 4 layers deep in some instances, and I can address that separately.

However, there are literally 8K files (not file size), but files that need to meet this new standard.

It's a non-profit who were erroneously informed that they did NOT have to meet HIPPA requirements even though they work with PHI of SP adults.

I know this should be simple, with everything else that is going on, I figured it wouldn't hurt to just ask.  Perhaps someone has already encountered something similar?

I am trying to get information from our print server using an HTA script that lists the printers by name, then I would like it so that the administrator can select a printer then hit the next button and it will then list in a new window: Printer Location, Printer Comment, Printer Status, Printer IP and Printer Detected Error State.  Pasted below is what I have so far which is an older script found on these forums, I've tried everything I can think of to get the next button to do what I want but I am at a road block at the moment.

<title>Printer Information</title>
	APPLICATIONNAME="Printer Information"
<script language="VBScript">
Dim arrPrintServers
arrPrintServers = array("servername here")
'If you have more than one print server, seperate by commas i.e. arrPrintServers = array("Server1","Server2","Server3")
