Hey /prog/ I recently downloaded a couple of rar files. Though after I downloaded it. I went to open the file and it's asking me for a password. Usually the places I get it from post the password there.

But this one didn't give me it. So I am asking what program should I use to go around it to get the contents.

There is also such a thing is a password cracker. Somehow it tries various combinations of letters for the password, and sees which combination(s) opens the rar. Don't ask me how it works or where to get one though, I don't have much to do with that stuff.

sup prog, I have to create a program in Java, C++ and either ruby or python (the last 2 i have 0 experience with) that can manage a medical complex. Heres my rough psuedocode:
PATIENTS
START
ASK PATIENT FOR DOCTOR
CHECK DOCTOR QUEUE FOR DOCTOR
IF DOCTOR EXISTS AND IS OPEN
ADD PATIENT TO QUEUE
ELSE PATIENT MUST TRY ANOTHER DOC OR CANCEL APPT.
END

SYSTEM COORDINATOR
START
CHECKS QUEUE FOR DOC STATUS (OPEN, CLOSED) BASED ON DOC RESPONSE
ADDS PATIENTS BASED ON DEMAND
IF PATIENT IS DONE WITH DOC REMOVE PATIENT FROM QUEUE

A medical complex is served by six physicians and their secretaries. Each day, the respective secretaries
monitor six queues of patients as follows:
  • When a patient checks in, he/she is asked to indicate which doctor he/she wishes to see.
-The doctor’s queue is checked to determine whether it is opened or closed. If it is opened, the patient is
added to the queue.
  • If the doctor’s queue is closed, the patient must try another doctor, or cancel the appointment for that day.
-Each queue is operated FIFO.

The overall running of the clinic is managed by a system coordinator. The main responsibilities of the system
coordinator are as follows:
-The coordinator periodically checks the queues and updates their status (open or closed) based on response
from the physicians.
-The coordinator periodically admits patients to different queues, based on demand.
-The coordinator periodically removes patients from different queues, when the doctor is finished with such

Both python and ruby are incredibly simple, in various ways.

I think you will most enjoy python instead of ruby if you have a choice, they both
strive to be simple to use, but I think python hits home harder in the "Plain english" department.

The Tranny Project by Betsy Niggerhood - Wed, 09 Apr 2014 12:00:39 EST ID:L9Fr0X8y No.31464 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I am writing to tell the world about my software project, The Tranny Project. It is:
  • A programming language that expresses how a language works (its grammar, syntax, morphology etc, as well as its vocabulary and idiom)
  • A set of interpreters for this language
  • A runtime library for any application
  • An ontology

The idea is that a set of rules can say in what way(s) a given language renders some meaning (or, if you prefer, it can describe what a sequence of characters means). This set of rules can either be used to transform a sentence to its meaning(s), or a meaning to a sentence/sentences.

With several sets of rules like this, one for each language, it is trivial to write a computer program that translates a text from one language to another, unrelated language, or that checks grammar or that takes instructions from the user in any one of the languages. Any of these things become possible with only a small amount of effort, because the language is already described by the rules distributed with libtranny.

What advantage does libtranny have over other projects like Google Translate or Babelfish? Well, their tactic is to use some clever mathematical and statistical tricks. And they appear to make a legible translation in one step. Others use a rule-based technique to do the same thing (again, in single step) But the Tranny Project has the tactic of documenting syntax and grammar in a machine-readable form. This means that it will be possible to parse a sentence, giving its meaning, and then generate a new sentence that has the same meaning. This treatment of meaning means that a particular one can be chosen for being the best or for fitting some context, etc. (You can draw an analogy to single-phase versus multiple phase compilers). And this treatment of rules means that, in theory, the generated sentence will be grammatical, even though it accepts ungrammatical input.

Another way this can be used is by taking a text input from the user, the meaning can be derived and treated as an instruction (but the user's input was in the user's language!). Seems perfect for those text-mode adventure games, or imagine a database where you can say in your own language, "Give me a young, petite brunette with green eyes."

Obviously, this can be used for grammar and spell checking too (and with less effort, since documenting the language is being done upstream.)

>Would it be able to recognize the congenial tone of a sentence like:
>"Fuck off!" he drawled with a grin as he comprehended my mischievous pun?
(Excepting the fact that direct speech hasn't been dealt with yet) "It" will not recognise that. But a program may be written that examines the meaning, and guesses that congeniality and grinning go better together than for example fury and grinning. And that can go ahead and assert the "tone" variable to the value "congenial":

This is how to do that:
(into quote language (tone congenial))

(into quote) is the instruction to enter some scope and do something in there
(language ...) is the instruction to assert some variable and maybe value in the namespace called "language".
(tone congenial) is of course the variable paired with its value.

And there may be many definitions of "fuck off" in the English dictionary, each one with its own meaning, each one asserting some value for "tone" in the language namespace. So, when you assert the tone value again, essentially you are selecting a range of meanings for "fuck off", because every monad where "tone" is not "congenial" will die.

I hope what I am saying makes sense. Ask away otherwise.

>Natural language isn't context-free. For example, pronouns are often context-sensitive. A translation from English to Japanese may require a pronoun to be replaced by a name or descriptive reference.

That's right. For this reason, in the near future, I am going to set something up that can remember and recall positions in the meaning that's been generated. Then, when a preposition is being chosen while generating a sentence, the anaphora can be recalled and that can guide the choice of pronoun. I don't know if this disqualifies the grammar from being CFG (but a CFG may still be expressed in Tranny).

The example that got me thinking about needing to do this, is that the English say "it" to refer to a woman's dress (third person neuter singular) and the Czech say "ony" to refer to the same thing (but this is third person masculine plural). The idea is then that the definition of the English pronoun "it" will include some function to look up some reference to any mentioned noun which satisfies the requirements that it is not human, not plural, etc).

I am comfortable with C. I know it quite well because of a few other projects I've done in the past. Well, I like lean things better in general. Now, after working on this for some time, I have come to consider that C++ has some good stuff to offer, that I could have taken advantage of, but I didn't rewrite my program because of that.

How did you find reading my code? It's the first time I have made anything of mine public, and I don't know how my code reads.

sup /prog/
former br/opi/ here, long story short i'm getting contracted to make a program to replace one that is currently in use. it's general purpose is getting customer information to a dispatcher to a driver. the driver would be receiving details via android based app, customers would be inputting via computer or email extracted data, and dispatchers would be using a mixture of the two.. i have 0 formal training in programming, and experience is "eh" at best, being the closest thing i did was create some firmwares for ipodwizard back in middle school.
from what i can see, what it would actually do isn't all that complicated. there's no hurry to get this done, but once finished i'll get paid /rather/ damn/ well/, and get paid even more if it handles accounting/books side of it as well.
not to mention sales if i write it from the ground up/own it/etc and sell it to some friends, who would be more than happy to have something like that tailored to their needs as well as $$$ to spend on it.

so. the question is: should i attempt to handle this through a website app? or should i have a dedicated windows program? also any general suggestions, where to start, etc would be very appreciated. obviously learning to create an android app is required, but i feel like that is more simple than the other parts.

Is this for a drug delivery line lol?

If this is legal, just tell these people to install Textsecure. Customer contacts dispatcher with Textsecure (iOS/Android) to place order (or fills out a form, or phones it in) then you just send the order to the driver via Textsecure, which is now totally data and similar to WhatsApp so can have a group chat open of drivers to talk and dispatch. You can use Digital Ocean or even Google App Engine to host your form w/SSL, or modify the textsecure fields to make it a form instead of freetype.

That would work for a legal biz, if this is some sort of shady drug delivery line then you'll need something totally different because cops will be all over it.

no. hypothetically speaking this method of information relay would actually be inefficient for transporting narcotics to customers. PTT and phone orders would have been the standard at recieving and distribution levels, at least in my hypothetical local market, since the early 2000's. but i wouldn't know anything about that.

textsecure looks viable, depending on customers tendencies to place via phone rather than computer.
thanks for the input guys

it sounds like your company should invest in paying for some real enterprise software instead of relying on an amateur with 0 experience like yourself to build something from the ground up. This is a mission critical application that will affect the bottom line, its not somewhere to fuck around with "oh i can figure out how to do this i r smart"

the company I work for uses Comet Tracker by Actsoft to handle dispatches and workflow. I'm sure there are plenty of alternatives but its the only one i've used and can speak for.

Take your current time estimate. If you were experienced it would take twice as long as you think, average experience 4 times. You're a straight up nub, so closer to 20 times what you expect right now. I won't tell you not to do it, however I want to give you an idea of a realistic time table.

If you want to write this from scratch I recommend this java stack, because you're learning java anyway for the android stuff. jax-rs/jax-ws, jboss web app server, j2ee back end. Maybe using hibernate instead of entity beans, spring instead of j2ee if your feeling fancy and learn you love annotations. Also read up on SOA, MVC design patterns, and basic relational database normalization.
Write out a plan, make sure it matches requirements, then divy out the time for each part, I recommend an agile methodology break it into sprints.

Accept that this is too much shit to learn on a first major project, and do research to find pre-made software that fits various roles. That would be the smart thing to do even if you did know all that shit.

Yep, it's about knowing who to hire. For example there's a reason OpenSSH has lasted this long with minimal problems. Theo de Raadt of OpenBSD went around the world and rounded up some of the best cryptographers in the game and worked with them on it.

Same goes for some so-called "superhackers" that are in prison right now. All they did was organize teams to do their bidding, and knew the right people to hire because they had extensive knowledge of what was required to break into shit they wanted. Albert gonzales was one such guy (now doing double digits in US fed).

Use polymorphism to define two penis classes, one with and one without a foreskin and write specialized functions so the need of an if(circumsized) is no longer needed. In order to allow reuse of existing code we could abstract away the blatter into a separate class which knows how full it is and empty itself.

Also, your functions make no sense at all. An int foreskin parameter? What does that even mean?

lets abstract it even further, so we can use a class to model time vs volume/pressure in some kind of differential equation. When the bladder is more full, and thus exerts more pressure, we can scale a timer to generate interrupts to trigger some kind of brainfunction-descisionmaking mechanism.

So we'll need a bunch of classes to abstract a couple of brain functions. A sleeping or drugged out brain in combination with a full bladder might increase the chance for auto-emptying.

No no no.

We need a Urinate Monad, because peeing may have side effects (staining, splashing, etc). So we can then bind like this:

(>>=) :: Monad m => m a -> (a -> m b) -> m b
where Pee can be an Applicate also

foreskin s | circumsized = pee
| otherwise = pullback >>= (\x -> pee)

and then

pee <*> foreskin <*> pull

it follows the 3 monad laws

Game development especially sucks because they're always looking for "DevOps" which means you do 3 jobs instead of 1 which is developing. Startups made this popular but there's no excuse for gaming corps they can afford operations, systems engineers and build people.

I love game development. I think it's cause I didn't really start coding games till later in my studies/career. It is one of the more challenging aspects of coding. I really like coding old skool 2D games. shooters, puzzles, platformers, fighting games ect. This is prolly because I grew up with Nintendo and Super Nintendo/Sega Genesis as a kid. I do a lot of socket programming so multi player games really interest me also. My two fav aspects of development are prolly Sockets/Encrypted Protocols and Game Development.

What did you not like about it, specifically? I'm currently working through my Comp Sci major and wondering what working for video games could be like.

I never had any interest in programming games and never really played much other than fucking around with n64 as a kid and halo/tonyhawk in highschool with friends. It's weird because I started programming mostly to make websites which I imagine is seen as boring by most people. But its so complicated and it seems like theres an unending list of shit to learn and skills to improve on. Only recently have I started thinking making games might be interesting because its a reason to use all sorts of algorithms and the like, maybe use that vector calc I learned but never had to use for anything. Still though, I imagine a job working on games would be worse than working on crud apps. Spending 40+ hours a week getting the shadow right on some game motorcycle or whatever the fuck just sounds so boring to me, worse than syncing up user profiles or whatever boring crud shit.

I started with websites also. HTML to be exact. Before I even knew about programming languages. I remember my first code a <marqee> with a scroll amount property. I was in awe. In those days there was no CSS or PHP being used. A lot of ugly sites with frames tables and shitty graphic menus ,or sometimes none at all just Hyperlinks as menus!!

PERL/CGI were around, but only used on large sites like search engines and blogging sites. Web programming now is getting so progressive it's like a totally diff world. This happened because of connection speeds and hardware specs improving over the years. Websites can be boring to me also. Social networking sites are a pain in the ass just because of the all the Database Queeries, that's not a typo lol. And the amount of time they take with no real challenge involved you are just putting a twist on something that's been done a thousand times. With games and socket/network applications you can be creative. Even if it's not the next big thing. I feel it gives me the ability to be more original. i have a place in my heart for all development though.

Most AI is done in Lisp. Scheme, Common Lisp, ect. I don't see why any language can't do stats and queries though.

Anything reasonably high-level should work just fine. I'd choose Clojure for those two very broad requirements; has core.logic (seriously look into logic programming), pretty dang fast for a Lisp and you can write hot code in Java if you really need to, anything math-heavy is generally much easier in functional languages, etc. etc.

I actually have a personal project that does something similar to what you're describing (Bayesian inference on structured datasets) and I wrote it in Clojure. Not linking to it because anonymity but it was a blast to write and very smooth.

Hey
I'm a 20yo italian indie game developer who just made a game with a friend of mine in university and it's on the store since 3 days ago..
It's called "Puddy Rush" , it's free, and it's avaible on the AppStore and on the Play Store (On Android if you can't find it try search "puddyrush" without spaces).
It's a very simple, but difficult, skill game to play when you don't know what to do when you have 5 minutes free..
I would love to hear what do you think about it and maybe give me some critics on the store with a review...
