Coding

On this page you will find some stuff I wrote in various languages, mostly small tools, that are too insignificant to have an own page but mature enough to be published. There is much more on my HD but I don’t think it is of much use for the public – most of it just serves as coding examples or was an interesting exercise.
While writing this blog I stumbled upon some interesting things such as:

  • AddMan is a platform independent address manager written in Java. One of my first software projects ever. Gregor Zurowski and myself started it basically to learn Java and to overcome the multi platform dilemma. These were the days I ran 3 computers with Linux, Windows, MacOS and Solaris x86… and there was no cloud to synchronize. The intention was to get a convenient database for personal email addresses independent of the email client and platform. Originally the data was stored in an Oracle database and depended heavily on stored procedures and triggers. After a while it got downsized form an enterprise solution to a simple XML-database.
  • BaseConvert that converts floats and integer in a string of 1s and 0s. pretty useful if you write VHDL testbenches. I never had a tool that shows a “binary” representation of a float according to IEEE 754.
  • Backup is a pretty cool script to do incremental Backups with cpio. It also generates an index in a hidden directory. It is meant to run with DAT-Tape drives but also works with files. This script was created in a time where only enterprise solutions were suitable for my 1-person household and there were 3 Computers running….
  • Rechteck is a MatLab m-File for showing how discrete fourier transformation is applied and the signal can be syntesized of a few base harmonics.
  • Osziplot is another script that deals with DSP. Here you can play with Simulink/Matlab integration. It basically shows how an oscillator can be built with timediscrete elements. Nothing special though. It was just my first contact with the Nyquist-sample Criterion….that gave me to think for a while.
  • CDinlay A early (2004) C++ project I wrote lets you automatically create a PDF of CD-Case inlays with track information based on playlist text information. The cool feat here is the dynamic loading of “parser” plugins for various input formats such as m3u, csv etc. Today (2013) I would probably do it differently but hey – this is undergrad work! It actually still compiles and works….

AddMan

AddMan is a platform independent address manager – something completly outdated and overcome. Anyway…. Here you can get it and check it out…. and please give feedback maybe the bugs will be fixed The binary Distribution – AddMan.jar A data description: data.dtd Put this file in the same folder as your XML-database The source – …
