    Re: Help with some color code

    I think the problem here may be that this isn't a programming question -- you're using a closed-source program, and it appears to be behaving strangely. You might have better luck on a forum...

    Re: Help with some color code

    Without any sort of context, it's hard to say... but if a colour is defined by four numbers, it's usually (red, green, blue, alpha). If that set of numbers gives blue, I'd guess it's a scale of...
  3. Re: Setting gcc 4.2 as default compiler on gutsy ?

    Well, gcc and g++ are just symbolic links to a particular version's executable. So if you change the links (in /usr/bin) to point to gcc-4.2 and g++-4.2, that should effectively make them the default...

    Re: embedding python in c++

    When people embed Python in a C/C++ program, it's usually so that they can script the overall program flow in Python, while doing the "serious work" in a lower-level language. That is, it's...

    Re: Synaptic on Drake vs. Fiesty

    When I open Synaptic on my Feisty system, hit the search button, and enter "python," one of the results is "python2.5-dev". Are you saying that's not the case for you?

    Um... this might help:

    Depending on what you've got in mind, it may also help to have a basic undestanding of C and C++ code. There are lots of examples out there in those languages, so it might help the learning process...

    Re: g++ man pages for includes

    Well... iostream is provided by libstdc++*-dev, so I'm thinking that you probably want one of the libstdc++*-doc packages. There's a libstdc++6-4.1-doc, for example. I could be wrong, but there's...

    Re: Linpal compiling

    Well, there are times when having circular dependencies between interrelated classes is a reasonable and correct thing to do; that's why we have forward declarations.

    If it were me, I'd either try...

    Re: ArcGIS on VirtualBox

    If it works on Macs, it ought to work on Linux. Once you're inside VirtualBox, you're essentially in the same "place" regardless of the outer operating system. That's the theory, anyway. As long as...

    Either find it in Synaptic, or do the following in a terminal:

    I don't know if that'll cover everything, but...

    A few reasons:
    1) Constant quick security fixes make Linux a difficult platform to create viruses for.
    2) A small install base makes Linux a poor target. A Windows virus has the potential to infect...

    You want to install the "build-essential" package. So search for that in Synaptic, or

    sudo aptitude install build-essential
    from a command-line. :)

    Re: Is this a glibc underflow bug?

    I think it's just a little subtlety here... I'm pretty sure that trying to calculate almost any number less than FLT_MIN will give an underflow. It's just that there are these representable denormal...

    Re: Is this a glibc underflow bug?

    Well... you don't have to believe me, but I'm pretty confident it's not a bug. Also, it's not in glibc. The underflow error flag is set by the processor -- it's a very low-level thing.
