1/15    What's the easiest/best thing to use to quickly create small GUI
        tools/apps for Windows? (cross-platform ok too) Like the equivalent
        of a perl script with a Windows GUI. Only for myself right now but
        I need to decide what to invest my time learning. So it might as well
        be cross platform if there's no big downside. I have hardly any
        experience with GUIs. Thanks.
        \_ I have the same question but maybe not for a perl script, also
           the GUI can be as simple as possible.
                \_ perl/tk is decent, though you might want to look into VB if you
                   want to interact with the os.  I'd advise staying away from
                   Java at all costs. --darin
                   \_ ya, sounds like VB is what the op is looking for.
                      \_ Is VB cross platform?
                         \_ and free? :( -op
                   \_ Performance aside, why no Java?
           There's also APIs into wxwindows for Python and other languages.
           I think it's what the original windows version of BitTorrent is
           written in.  --dbushong
           \_ Ok I started playing with wxruby so I'll see how that goes, even
              though it's beta. found at

3/24    I'm being asked convert a simple ASP script from IIS to Apache.
        The script is written in VB and all it does is echo back the cookies and
        query string params of the HTTP request, along with a hardcoded body.
        What's the easiest way to write something to do the same thing using
        Apache.  Ideas or pointers to sample code is appreciated.
        \_ I think you'll need a scriptng language along with Apache.

4/14    I need to write a script to run under DOS (yes, I know it sucks)
        and I need it to stop a program that can only be terminated by
        hitting Control-C. How can I give that to the script as a
        command? Thanks.
        \_ try installing cygwin ( ?) and use their "ps" and
           "kill" functions?

10.17   anyone have a good unix primer (online) for college freshman? my
        little brother knows ls, pine, pico, who, and talk, but that's about
        it. something that can introduce him to the concept of jobs, processes,
        pipes, but also, simpler stuff, like... i dont know, the stuff that
        the average unix user takes for granted.

6/27    Anyone know how to read Shift-JIS encoded email in Lotus Notes 4.x?
        \_ download njstar communicator for windows. - keithyw
        \_ you can try to import into  notes - it will probably give you
           some username and password BS or unrecognized database format
             so the answer is probably NO you can't read it- but you can try

8/8     How well do UCB EECS and CS newgrads know C/C++? (in general)
        \_ If it makes you feel any better, Stanford undergrads start out
           take 3 quarters of "Introductory Programming" in C instead of
        \_ on average, better than other schools' new grads, with a
           lot more upside

7/16    Back from Microsoft PDC in Orlando.  I feel so dirty.  Giant
        hype machine; .Net strategy an entirely unimplemented joke.  C#
        combines the worst parts of C++ and Java; MS showing definite signs
        of embracing VB as their primary development language.  Thousands
        of clueless and lazy ("fear change!") developers.  Don't let this
        happen to you.

5/8     Is there a Visual Basic equivalent to the UNIX system() function?
        \_ ShellExecute or CreateProcess - chiapet
        \_ Shell (command, windowmode)
          \_ Thanks.  Shell seems decent.  Is there any way for Shell
             to return the output to VB?

        I need to write a VB program to run a bunch of dos commands
        and report the results to the user.  If I had a choice, I would
        use perl, python, tcl, bash, or something like that, but I need
        to create a program that will run a standard windows system.  Thanks.
        \_ Yes.

Binary releases are available for RedHat/i386 and ActivePerl/Win32 and Mac OS X - Fixed installation of 'wxPerl' command on Mac OS X - Fixed running in the embedded case (still requires the application to call ExitMainLoop at the right places). Aug 29, 2004 This really is old news, but SuSE 91 Professional i386 (released in May) includes a prepackaged version of wxPerl 018. Jun 20, 2004 Jeff Buchbinder created a wxPerl Debian package that should work with the "testing" distribution.
