Sed & awk (2nd Edition) by Arnold Robbins, Dale Dougherty

By Arnold Robbins, Dale Dougherty

sed & awk describes textual content processing courses which are mainstays of the UNIX programmer's toolbox.

sed is a "stream editor" for modifying streams of textual content that will be too huge to edit as a unmarried dossier, or that may be generated at the fly as a part of a bigger facts processing step. the commonest operation performed with sed is substitution, exchanging one block of textual content with another.

awk is a whole programming language. in contrast to many traditional languages, awk is "data driven" -- you specify what sort of info you have an interest in and the operations to be played whilst that information is came upon. awk does many stuff for you, together with instantly beginning and shutting information records, analyzing documents, breaking the documents up into fields, and counting the files. whereas awk presents the beneficial properties of most normal programming languages, it is also a few unconventional positive factors, resembling prolonged typical expression matching and associative arrays. sed & awk describes either courses intimately and contains a bankruptcy of instance sed and awk scripts.

This variation covers good points of sed and awk which are mandated by way of the POSIX commonplace. This such a lot significantly impacts awk, the place POSIX standardized a brand new variable, CONVFMT, and new features, toupper() and tolower(). The CONVFMT variable specifies the conversion structure to exploit while changing numbers to strings (awk used to take advantage of OFMT for this purpose). The toupper() and tolower() features every one take a (presumably combined case) string argument and go back a brand new model of the string with all letters translated to the corresponding case.

In addition, this version covers GNU sed, newly on hand because the first version. It additionally updates the 1st version assurance of Bell Labs nawk and GNU awk (gawk), covers mawk, an extra freely on hand implementation of awk, and in short discusses 3 advertisement types of awk, MKS awk, Thompson Automation awk (tawk), and Videosoft (VSAwk).

Digital Memory and the Archive (Electronic Mediations) by Wolfgang Ernst

By Wolfgang Ernst

Within the well known mind's eye, data are distant, principally out of date associations: both antiquated, unavoidably dusty libraries or sinister repositories of non-public secrets and techniques maintained via police states. but the archive is now a ubiquitous characteristic of electronic lifestyles. instead of being deleted, e-mails and different desktop records are archived. Media software program and cloud garage enable for the prompt cataloging and upkeep of information, from tune, photos, and video clips to private info accrued through social media sites.

In this electronic panorama, the archival-oriented media theories of Wolfgang Ernst are relatively appropriate. Digital reminiscence and the Archive, the 1st English-language choice of the German media theorist’s paintings, brings jointly essays that current Ernst’s debatable materialist method of media conception and heritage. His insights are primary to the rising box of media archaeology, which uncovers the function of particular applied sciences and mechanisms, instead of content material, in shaping modern tradition and society.

Ernst’s interrelated principles at the archive, desktop time and microtemporality, and the recent regimes of reminiscence supply a brand new standpoint on either present electronic tradition and the infrastructure of media historic wisdom. For Ernst, various different types of media systems—from library catalogs to sound recordings—have stimulated the content material and figuring out of the archive and different associations of reminiscence. while, electronic archiving has turn into a contested web site that's hugely immune to curation, hence complicating the production and renovation of cultural reminiscence and historical past.

Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information Age by Kurt W. Beyer

By Kurt W. Beyer

A Hollywood biopic in regards to the lifetime of computing device pioneer Grace Murray Hopper (1906--1992) may pass like this: a tender professor abandons the ivy-covered partitions of academia to serve her nation within the military after Pearl Harbor and unearths herself at the entrance traces of the pc revolution. She works difficult to achieve the all-male machine undefined, is nearly introduced down through own difficulties yet survives them, and ends her occupation as a celebrated elder stateswoman of computing, a heroine to hundreds of thousands, hailed because the inventor of computing device programming.

Throughout Hopper's later years, the preferred media advised this simplified model of her existence tale. In Grace Hopper and the discovery of the knowledge Age, Kurt Beyer finds a extra actual Hopper, a colourful and complicated lady whose profession paralleled the meteoric trajectory of the postwar laptop undefined.

Both rebellious and collaborative, Hopper used to be influential in male-dominated army and enterprise agencies at a time whilst ladies have been inspired to dedicate themselves to housekeeping and childbearing. Hopper's maximum technical fulfillment used to be to create the instruments that will permit people to speak with pcs in phrases except ones and zeroes.

This boost stimulated all destiny programming and software program layout and laid the root for the advance of effortless own desktops.

Granular Computing and Intelligent Systems: Design with by Vladik Kreinovich (auth.), Witold Pedrycz, Shyi-Ming Chen

By Vladik Kreinovich (auth.), Witold Pedrycz, Shyi-Ming Chen (eds.)

Information granules are basic conceptual entities facilitating notion of complicated phenomena and contributing to the enhancement of human centricity in clever platforms. The formal frameworks of knowledge granules and data granulation include fuzzy units, period research, likelihood, tough units, and shadowed units, to call just a couple of representatives. between present advancements of Granular Computing, fascinating concepts obstacle info granules of upper order and of upper kind. the better order details granularity is anxious with an efficient formation of knowledge granules over the distance being initially developed by means of details granules of reduce order. This build is at once linked to the concept that of hierarchy of platforms composed of successive processing layers characterised via the expanding degrees of abstraction. this concept of layered, hierarchical consciousness of types of complicated structures has received an important point of visibility in fuzzy modeling with the well-established proposal of hierarchical fuzzy versions the place one strives to accomplish a legitimate tradeoff among accuracy and a degree of aspect captured by means of the version and its point of interpretability. better kind info granules emerge whilst the data granules themselves can't be totally characterised in a merely numerical style yet as a substitute it turns into handy to use their cognizance within the type of different forms of details granules equivalent to type-2 fuzzy units, interval-valued fuzzy units, or probabilistic fuzzy units. better order and better form of info granules represent the focal point of the reviews on Granular Computing offered during this learn. The e-book elaborates on sound methodologies of Granular Computing, algorithmic targets and an array of various functions and case reports in environmental stories, choice expense forecasting, and tool engineering.
