RE: I'm just passing though

I'm just passing though a trough on my Q6600 run, and it's very clear that the 'wiggle minima' on either side of the true trough base can actually be below the 'smoothed minimum' of the trough as a whole. No wonder the curves can be 'concave down' - if your allocated run happens to omit the 'wiggle maxima', it would look very different. Exclude or process (once we have a complete theory of wiggleness), you can't ignore them.


Yup, my ( current ) algorithm is particularly weakest just where the data is typically going to go squirrelly .... sigh.

Well, I guess Murphy did Programming 101 ...... :-)

A lot of the recent data sets

A lot of the recent data sets are causing RR to be doing quite a bit of vomiting in the trough, particularly 1106990. To counteract the wiggles flapping the wings, flipping the plot and freezing the browser then I have done a quick fudge with RR_V7f. :-)

Anyone interested in beta

Anyone interested in beta testing my upcoming RR8? Please? .... :-)

I need at least one person from each major platform - Windoze ( variants ), Linux ( variants ) and Mac ( variants ) - primarily to establish:

- whether you can get the required Java version onto your machine. A particular issue is Mac, as Apple bundles it's own Java - while everyone else gets it from Sun.

- executability of my distribution ( this will/should be a single *.jar file ).

- desired behaviour should it execute.

- feedback on aberrations.

- any/all suggestions for improvements.

You see I know what works fine on my MS machines .... but I'm using a cross-platform look & feel windowing system called the 'Standard Widget Toolkit' that seeks out and utilises an underlying 'Java Native Interface' specific to a given machine/type. I ought have something reasonable to fire at you by next week.

[ If this Java pathway works it may serve as a good model for development of other like-minded tools ]

PM me if you like .... :-)

Cheers, Mike.

Yes, but by way of environment all I can offer is two variants on Microsoftness:

Windows XP SP2, and, if you wish, I can try it on one Windows 98 SE machine. (or not, if you don't wish)

Would be glad to help test it on a MacMini !

Thanks guys! :-) First

Thanks guys! :-)

First things first then: to use a Java program your system must suffer certain pre-requisites.

#1 Verify/obtain/install an unzipping facility which can handle really long path names. To my knowledge this is only an issue on Windows machines. 'Winzip' and the native Windows 'compressed folders' facility WILL NOT reliably & correctly unwrap some important components that are needed. A good ( & free ) choice is 7-Zip.

#2 Discover if you have the Java Virtual Machine ( JVM ) already installed on your computer. This can also be known as the Java Runtime Environment, Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment, Java SE Runtime Environment, Java Platform Standard Edition, Java SE or simply J2SE. Examine your listing of installed programs [ For instance under Windows : Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs ].

#3 If needed, download/install/upgrade to a version of JVM which equals or exceeds 1.5 ( BUT this is also known as 5.0 too! If you are brave you may study Java Versionology ... )

As of writing :

- for Windows/Linux/Solaris
- perhaps check out Solaris patches
- look here for Apple.
- and select Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 5 ( currently )
- choose your platform
- follow their installation instructions
- you may need to reboot

Let me know how you go! :-)

Cheers, Mike.

Ready and waiting with win XP

Ready and waiting with win XP & 2000, JVM & JRE 1.6.0 on both.

So, this is your own server that supports Java, and not a hosted account supporting Java?

Anyway, I'll play around with it, and if you want, feel free to jar/war the project (if using Eclipse, I think NetBeans does it differently), as I wouldn't mind looking at the code, that is if you wish to share...

No, it will be unrelated to any client/server or browser/server technology when running. The JVM is downloaded and installed for a given machine. The ( soon to be provided ... ) ReadyReckoner.jar file will be downloadable for you to execute as a standalone - that is no web interaction is required beyond setup of the JVM and acquiring the jar. I think you may be thinking of 'Javascript' and/or 'Java Server Pages' which while modelled on ( the original ) Java and are 'somewhat' related in concept, is not the line of development I am pursuing.

I will indeed be pleased in the future to reveal the source code for anyone's perusal/critique/alteration, but when I'm happier with it's stability and performance AND when I have satisfactorily commented and JavaDoc'ed it. One likes to put the best foot forward in public ..... :-)
