Asynchronous combinatorial circuits by Thomas Sondlelit - Fri, 20 Dec 2013 12:59:37 EST ID:8J5Kxm+3 No.30580 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've been trying to make a delay insensitive carry lookahead adder but It's getting gigantic. I've been using DIMS (pic related) to directly create the small circuits I need to compose the more complex ones but a single carry look ahead unit uses 2 OR gates and 1 AND gate, costing 12 C-gates of area. Making them directly out of C-gates would cost 16 3-input C-gates.
I've looked for alternatives designs for asynchronous circuits but the only one I can find is Null Convention Logic which uses threshold gates. Does anybody have any learning material on what transformations you can perform on NCL circuits or any other alternatives that are delay insensitive?

I don't know any of those languages and it seems I have screwed myself for doing so. Everyone seems to be looking for web based developers or developers for windows platforms.
I know C, C++, obj-C, Qt, and some Python, HTML, Bash, and haskell.

What sort of entry level jobs should I be looking for or am I just screwed? All I can find are support type jobs. Like tech support for the IT departments of the client using my employers product.

>>28735 You know, .NET isn't a net working lib per s?.

I started a week ago on learning C#. I also knew java, obj c, python and web development languages. And I can tell you, it's a fucking breeze. It's almost the same as java. Never had a problem(with the language) that i couldn't solve by the first google hit. I'm pretty confisent i can write the same software in c# that i can write in java, and that after mot even a fulltime week. I had a little experience in .net in visual basic though. But .NET is only for the ui stuff and interacting with windows(partially the same thing). Plus that lib is sublimely documented aswell, if you ask me.

Why don't you learn .NET or JVM languages?

> C, C++
Could get you a job in embedded sytems. But you'd need to know quite a bit about low-level programming.

If you add javascript, you could get a work as web designer.

Considering the languages you've already used, you would probably also get an entry-level job in some language that you haven't used yet. Just apply everywhere or consult a recruiter.

just use tumblr and focus on making a good comic. nobody cares about the website itself as long as it has good content, is easy to browse ("first, prev, next, last" and maybe tagging what the individual stories are about) and not overly full of annoying ads. also remember to put a meaningful but non-spoiler title for each. on tumblr, first line of body text is used as title. find a free theme you like.

There is a row of n cards. Each one has a number x_i on it, where i ranges from 1 to n. Initially all the cards are face down. Your goal is to find a local minimum: that is, a card i whose number is less than or equal to those of its neighbors, x_(i-1) >= x_i <= x_(i+1). The first and last cards can also be local minima, and they only have one neighbor to compare to. There can be many local minima, but you are only responsible for finding one of them.
Obviously you can solve this problem by turning over all n cards, and scanning through them. However, show that you can find such a minimum by turning over only O(log n) cards.

prof gave us this challenge problem for bonus and I am having trouble coming up with a solution. How would I go about solving this? I have a hunch that there is no O(log n) solution but I can't prove it

I'm pretty sure there is always a local minimum in any sequence of number. I don't want to prove it but you can certainly do it by induction.

Pick the middle number in your row. If it's a local minimum, return. Otherwise, check what the "slope" is. If it's N-1 < N < N+1 (positive), you know there will be a local minimum to your left. Check the middle number of your left part. If the slope is positive, same case, the local minimum is in the newest left part. If it's negative, the local minimum is somewhere in between.
Rinse and repeat. Divide and conquer algorithm = O(log n)

The worst case is when the row is sorted, and a sorted row is actually very useful, thanks to dichotomic search. It helps to see the sequence as a function graph. I'm not sure if I made any sense.

If the cards were sorted, you would just have to return the first (or last) card.
As I said, the worst case scenario is if the cards were sorted, but they're not.

The cards are not sorted because that would be stupid.
The number are not sequential because that would make the = in the >= and <= irrelevant.

Now the clincher - I can not get the remove item button to call the method page which deletes the item and I believe it has to do with the fact that I am trying to save a variable in the hyperlink to another site.

OP is being intentionally vague so this might not apply, but:

you can do this, but you shouldn't get in the habit of allowing the client control over any "important" data.

for example, in the days of web 1.0 some internet storefronts stored the price of an item for sale in a hidden field. it was trivial to alter the code to send a price of $0.01 instead, and this happened for real more than once.

for a one-off project it doesn't matter, but in production you must manage important state on the server.

In all seriousness: R.

R is fun, geared toward mathematics, can link up with API real well, and can be made to make webapps.

It's flexible, and it promotes functional programming, but doesn't force you to do. It also is great for read+write, which is the majority of scripting that you will do in the beginning.

OP, this is the only answer that matters: the language doesn't matter.

Your first language is going to be the hardest. There are some core principles which make a good programmer, and very few of them have anything to do with which languages you know, or how well you know them. So here's my suggestion - ask yourself what would be fun to build or do, then figure out which language is best suited to building that kind of thing. My first language was the internal language for the TI-83 graphing calculators, writing a rougelike game to be played on it. Later I learned UNIX scripting, Perl, and Python, because I wanted to automate the hobby home server I had in high school. Then, in college, I learned Java and C because everyone teaches those are college languages. Now, I write Ruby and JavaScript for a living.

So yeah, your first language doesn't matter, nor will it dictate your future. The only important thing is that you can find a project which can keep you interested long enough to learn the core principles of programming which will transfer anywhere.

Ok so listen up for a second guys

I'm pretty fresh to GNU/Linux, about 4 months or so I believe.
I have decided on a programming language: Python.
I have decided on a text editor: Vim.
But I have one gaping hole left, and that is the application for my web development. To be clear, I don't know why, but I feel like I'd be most comfortable with two separate applications handling my programming (Vim) and my web development (_?_).

I have searched around and what I'm left with is basically gedit with a good extension (Snippets..?) or these IDE's (that I for some reason get the feel of bloat..) Aptana, Komodo, Bluefish, KompoZer, SeaMonkey. I do not know though, that's why I'm asking. Any of those could be great.

>TL;DR Give me your tips on best web development extension for gedit, or the best web development-focused IDE on GNU/Linux.

I find both Kate and Geany to be nice, simple GUI text editors with lots of built in knowledge about syntax and autocompletion (as well as features I never realised they had until I needed them). I'd avoid bloaty, crappy IDEs, of which there are plenty, and stick to a well-featured text editor. Nothing wrong with Vim; redunkulously powerful once you master the keyboard shortcuts.

Now do you guys have any advice on really good Vim-beginner-books which you've read?

Will start learning tomorrow. I feel a bit jittery actually. I usually go through shit way too deep into detail before lift-off and I rarely come far in small goals here and there but I've never felt such a drive and want as I do in Vim, Python, GNU/Linux and FOSS in general.

Use javascript so that clicking the button fires off an ajax post to a php script on the server. Server loads session variables, sees the request from button and does unset($GLOBALS[_SESSION]['whatever']);.
