Re: Squares

@Albert, this has been said before, by more than one person in "Squares" but you really need to look at compression from a helicopter viewpoint. A truly random sequence of numbers really can't be compressed----but a repeating pattern can. So you need to look for repeating patterns in the d...

Re: Squares

Albert, did you download the book on numbers? With your brilliant mind, I am sure you could write a program for each chapter. Would be fun for you and you might even stumble on a new way of compressing things. http://www.plouffe.fr/simon/Phys%20et%20Math/Albert%20Beiler%20-%20Recreations%20In%20The%...

Re: arduino ?

Well, the simplest is to set up a serial link between the Arduino and the PC and then you can do pretty much whatever you want. To control thing or output stuff, just send the value to the Arduino by RS232. The opposite to receive data from the Arduino to the PC. Easy to test and diagnose too becaus...

Re: Squares

Lucky you can do that beer thing Albert. I live in a village which now has no shop, no pub, no post office, no village hall, and the only telephone box was removed three weeks ago. WHAT !!!!! There are five bottle shops within a few minutes of each other where I live. And we need a drink to wash th...

Re: Squares

Happy New Year to you all. @Albert, have a look at this little book. I stumbled on it some time ago. It should keep you going for a long time. For others, still fascinating for the frustrated math geniuses in us. From Chapter One ANYONE interested in puzzles will find the theory of numbers a delight...

Re: blue toth or wifi ?

I think Bluetooth just comes up as a COM port doesn't it? So serial type RS232 would possibly work. At least thats how I used it with a little microcontroller (PICAXE) and my Android phone.

Re: Squares

Ha Ha. I still lurk occasionally and the above brought a smile to my face. I have been working with National Instruments Labview lately and have paid for the full license. I had a paid customer project to deliver so I could justify the license (very expensive), but the customer specifically wanted a...

Re: Flow Chart Programming

Yes, it is the translation into all the different common languages that I found interesting too. I could compare (almost side by side) the same algorithm implemented into C++ and BASIC and others, thus making the language structure obvious---and I found that apart from the language overhead and synt...

I have Norton 365 and it got past that OK. Loads and runs fine and I haven't had to pay any bitcoin ransom yet (fingers crossed!)

Re: Flow Chart Programming

I only found it last night so don't know how good it is yet. I have been trying to get some VBA code running in an Excel spreadsheet. VBA is not BASIC so I was struggling a bit. When I found this Flowgorithm tool I could draw up my concept then examine the code in its QBASIC source to see if I had w...

Flow Chart Programming

I just found a nice little tool called Flowgorithm. You can describe your program in flow chart form and it will produce the code as output. The output can be in many different formats including Qbasic. It will also produce C++ code or VBA or Java or Javascript or Python and so on. These options are...

Re: Squares

I have a Transworld 41----also a ketch, and also a beast--but an elegant beast-----certainly built for comfort, not speed. Perhaps we meet up one day----sailing to Tassie is on my list------when I retire it will be south for the summer and north for the winter. I doubt the "great southern ocean...

Re: Squares

Hello Squares------its been a while since I lurked here. I bought a sailboat and it is much more fun than programming--but In still do make the occasional program for work-----mainly to set up a little test station to do electrical calibrations or testing. Anyway, I just downloaded that book "R...
