Agena 2.12.0 - Procedural programming language.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 12:24

Agena is an easy-to-learn procedural programming language suited to be used in scientific, educational, linguistic, and many other applications, including scripting.

Version 2.12.0: New syntax:
  • Local variables can now be defined in short-cut functions using the `with` clause, e.g.: > fact := with n := 1 > -> exp(lngamma(x + n)) >>;
  • The `import` statement can now also assign an alias to a library name when given the new `as` clause, e.g.: > import hashes as h; > a := h.crc32('agena'); # which is equal to: > b := hashes.crc32('agena');
  • The `global` statement now checks whether the given variables have not been declared local before its invocation.
  • If there are no parameters in a short-cut procedure, then an empty bracket pair has to be explicitly given: then, now wrong: 1 >> now, right: 1 >>
  • `map` and `@` now support function composition. (See also new function `reduce` below.)
  • `min` and `max` can now process sets and registers.
  • `os.fcopy` can now copy files if only a target directory is given. The function now no longer overwrites existing files and issues an error instead. Warning messages have been improved. The function now issues errors instead of returning `fail` if a file could not be read or created, or if the source and target file are identical.
  • `os.list` returns a second argument, an explanatory text, if a given directory or given file could not be found.
  • `os.fstat` now returns the date of last access and last date of a file attribute change in the new 'lastaccess' and 'attribchange' fields.
  • You can now read and set individual bits of an unsigned char array with the new functions `numarray.getbit and `numarray.setbit`. `numarray. iterate` can traverse bitfields one by one if you pass the fourth argument `true`, e.g.: "f := numarray.iterate(a, 1, 1, true)".
  • `stats.hmean` has been ported to C, has become five times faster and now internally uses Kahan-Babuka summation to compensate for rounding errors.
  • The new function `math.gethighlowuint64` returns the higher and lower bytes of the unsigned 64-bit integer.
  • The new function `math.sethighlowuint64` combines two unsigned 32-bit integers to an unsigned 64-bit integer.
  • `strings.tolatin` now returns unsupported code points in its result.
  • `strings.chop` now accepts a function as a second argument, checks each character in the string from the right to the left for the given Boolean condition and returns the string from its beginning up to the character that no longer satisfies the condition.
  • `strings.advance`, `strings.remove` and `strings.chomp` now support pattern matching.
  • `strings.between` and `strings.fields` can now convert its result as a number(s).
  • `strings.between` has been extended: the prefix string can now reside within the string, not only at its beginning. Empty pre- or postfixes are no longer accepted. The function now returns `null` if there was no match (instead of its third argument, which was wrong).
New Functions:
  • The new function `reduce` applies a function on each item of a structure or string and returns one accumulated result.
  • The new `bloom` package implements Bloom filters. A Bloom filter is a memory-efficient mean to check whether a string probably is part of a dictionary or whether it is definitely not part of a dictionary, with acceptable query times.
  • The new function `stats.accu` returns a factory that computes the running mean, variance, median, and absolute deviation by mere accumulation of individual obervations. It consumes much less memory than other `stats` functions but is slower.
  • The new function `math.accu` returns a function that gets a number with each call, adds it to an internal accumulator using one of five selectable algorithms, and returns the accumulated sum.
  • `math.lbfast` approximates log2(x). 10 % faster than `log2`.
  • `calc.weier` implements the Weierstraß function, a function that is continuous but non-differentiable everywhere.
  • `strings.charset` returns a set of all the unique characters included in a string.
  • `strings.shannon` computes various Shannon entropies for a given string.
  • The new function `strings.splitfields` splits a string containing fields into its individual fields; the user may pass any delimiter separating the fields and also any wrapper that might enclose the various fields. Suited to parse database or other dumps.
  • `gzip.deflate` compresses a string using the zlib library.
  • `gzip.inflate` uncompresses a deflated string.
  • `hashes.crc16` computes the CRC16 value of a string.
  • `hashes.murmur2`, `hashes.murmur3` and `hashes.murmur3128` compute MurmurHashes. (`hashes.murmur3128` is not supported in OS/2.)
  • `environ.arity` returns the number of parameters of a function and additionally a Boolean indicating whether its parameter list includes a `?` (varargs) token.
Documentation of formerly undescribed functions:
  • `strings.gseparate` creates a factory splitting a string into its tokens one after the other.
  • `math.leadzeros` counts the number of leading zero bits in a 32-bit integer,
  • `math.onebits` counts the number of bits set in a 32-bit integer,
  • `math.sincosfast` returns approximations of sine and cosine,
  • `math.sqrtfast` returns an approximation of the square root.
  • `hashes.reflect` reflects the bits of an integer about its middle position.
  • `hashes.bsd` returns an integer between 0 and 65536, alternatively an integer between 0 and 255.
Bug Fixes:
  • The `restart` statement did not correctly reset Agena's three number stacks, causing segmentation faults if the stacks have been used thereafter. This has been fixed.
  • The following `hashes` functions could cause segmentation faults (at least in Windows) if called `too often`: `djb`, `djb2`, `fnv`, `jen`, `lua`, `mix64`, `mix64to32`, `oaat`, `pl`, `raw`, `sax`, `sdbm`, `sth`. This has been fixed.
  • The `import` statement / `readlib` function created memory leaks if the path to the main Agena library could not be found or other errors occurred. This has been fixed.
  • Since Agena 2.11.1, `nan` worked incorrectly with complex values representing `undefined`. This has been fixed.
  • The Linux version of `os.cdrom` has been fixed.
  • The `default` keyword has been removed.
  • The `telex` package now treats most ligatures and diacritics with Codepage 850 properly.
  • `skycrane.scribe` has been repaired.
  • In some Linux flavours, `ilog2` returned wrong results. This has been fixed.
  • Adapted sources to compile on Raspbian Stretch.
  • Improved the index of the Primer and Reference.
  • The new C API function lua_pushchar pushes a single character of type string onto the stack.
  • This release has been Valgrind-checked on x86 Linux and Mac OS X to ensure there are no memory leaks.

  • OS X 10.5 or later

Detailed thoughts from a GPM/Spotify user after 24 hours with YouTube Music

Android - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 12:13

I used to use GPM pretty heavily, but ended up switching to Spotify because I felt artist categorisation was much better, and wanted to give the other service a try. Since YouTube Music (YM) just released, I decided to give it a go as well. I spent around 7 hours manually transferring every song over, and rebuilding all my playlists, so I could give it a proper chance and gather my thoughts on it as a service compared to GPM and Spotify.

Verdict: After 24 hours of proper use, I feel it’s a promising service, and in some ways improves on both GPM and Spotify. I think with time and attention, it could well develop into a very worthy competitor to both. However, I can’t believe it was released in its current state. There are so many issues, some of which are huge, which really make it difficult to recommend YM at the moment. From poor categorisation, to big bugs in the app, to missing content, to playback issues. The app itself is lovely, but overall the experience needs some serious work to fix a lot of these issues. As much as I hope Google acts to fix these issues, their track record for product support is not great, and I'm worried they may not give this service the attention it needs to become truly great.

  1. The app is lovely to use.
    It’s fluid, it dynamically themes the player, and the navigation is much better than GPM or Spotify. It gives full, square album covers in the player too. On the now-playing screen, you simply swipe up to show the queue, and swipe down to hide it again. Swiping down again will hide the player and take you back to search/artist listings.
  2. In some ways, the artist categorisation is much better than GPM and more on par with Spotify.
    For example, in GPM, if you had ‘song name (Artist X remix) - Artist Y’, the artist for the track would only be identified as Artist Y. If you went to Artist X’s page, the song will not appear there. YM actually recognises multiple artists in a song, which is a big improvement in my eyes.
  3. High-quality song versions are easy to identify.
    When you search for a song, it subdivides results into “songs” and “videos”. Songs are the original high-quality uploads, likely ported over from GPM. The “videos” are ones from YouTube, which carry a lower video quality. It’s good that it’s easy to distinguish.
  4. Queue management is lovely.
    I always hated how Spotify does queue management. YM has an “add to queue” for adding stuff at the end of everything queued, and a “play next” to play the song immediately after. In Spotify if you start a playlist and “add to queue”, it’ll put that song next, and put any other songs you queue after that. There’s no way to add it to the end of non-queued stuff that’s already playing.
    YM also shows your queue history, which I love - in Spotify, once a song finishes, it disappears from the queue, and if it’s one you added to the queue, pressing the “previous” button doesn’t even play that song again. In YM you can scroll all the way up to see everything that’s already played, swipe away stuff you don’t want, or simply drag to re-order.
  5. Suggestions are much better, IMO, than Spotify.
    I’ve always preferred the stations and suggestions in GPM, and YM is similar in that regard. I find it gives much better suggestions than Spotify does.
  6. Pricing is pretty reasonable.
    I have a GPM family plan, and YM is included in this at no extra cost. This means 5 of us are getting YM for just £15/mo, which I think is a very reasonable price. Having said that, the service is far from finished, so I don’t think the price is quite justifiable yet (see cons below).


  1. YM integrates with regular YouTube playlists, which is just awful.
    This means when you save an album to your library, it adds it to your YouTube account as an individual playlist. This means if you save, say, 50 albums from different artists, that’s an extra 50 playlists on your YouTube account! It’s a HUGE amount of clutter, and pretty inexcusably bad for library management. Likewise, all your YouTube playlists appear under your YM playlists (even those with no music in) - this means I have loads of playlists in YM titled “Funny Videos” or “Interesting Videos” from my main YouTube, but going into them it’s just filled with entries saying “not available”.
  2. The service has a lot of big, very irritating bugs.
    For example:
    1. If you’ve liked a song and then unlike it, sometimes it stays liked. If you then re-like it, sometimes it doesn’t re-like.
    2. If you connect to a cast device and hit shuffle on a playlist, the whole app completely breaks and skips through the entire playlist, flashes up a load of “playback error” messages and if you’re using a Google Home it starts yelling about problems with playback.
    3. If you connect to a Chromecast to play a playlist, it only loads 25 videos into the queue (and if it’s a longer playlist than that, the rest just get ignored). When you reach the end of the 25 songs, it doesn’t add more, and playback just finishes. This means you literally can’t play a long playlist on a Chromecast at the moment.
    4. For some reason, the “Bluetooth” process crashes constantly when I use my Bluetooth headphones with HD audio turned on in settings (AAC codec). Literally every 20 seconds or so the headphones disconnect, the music pauses, and I have to wait for it to reconnect and then Bluetooth crashes and has to be closed. The only way to avoid these crashes is to turn off HD audio in Bluetooth device settings.
    5. Album art and song information sometimes just doesn’t show on the now playing screen.
  3. The categorisation needs some serious work.
    1. I found quite a few song tags that were just completely and inexplicably wrong. For example, a song called “CamelPhat & Elderbrook - Cola [Robin Schulz Remix] (Official Audio)” - when I add it to my library or play it, it plays the correct song but inexplicably changes to be called “I Believe I’m Fine (Nick Martin Remix) - HUGEL & Robin Schulz” which is the incorrect title. It shows up correctly in search results, but incorrectly when you play it, which is just bizarre.
    2. There are many duplicate listings for songs. For example, “Innerbloom (Sasha Remix)” was a nightmare to find - there were about 3 different versions listed and they all said the song-length was around 4 minutes, whilst I knew the song to be 11 minutes. However, when you actually play them, they’re all either 10 or 11 minutes, but for some reason are incorrectly recognised as such in search results. Also two of the listings for this song were actually the original, and not the Sasha Remix, so were incorrectly labelled. 3 listings for the same song, and they were ALL wrong - pretty ridiculous.
  4. There are lots of songs/artists missing.
    Many people have already mentioned that there’s basically no Radiohead on there, and I found similar with lots of artists. There are lots of missing songs, albums, etc, which is a real shame. Fortunately if there’s no official version of a track, there’s almost always a YouTube video you can add, but the sound quality in those is not as good and they lack proper album art / categorisation.
  5. There are also lots of duplicate songs.
    Sometimes I found as many as 4 or 5 different listings of the same song from the same album in search results, and it’s hard to know which to use. Because of this I sometimes ended up adding the same song to a playlist multiple times - normally the app will warn you if you’re adding the same song a second time to a playlist, but because these are technically different listings, these weren’t picked up.
  6. Search is terrible!
    Really bizarre for a company like Google, but search does not work well. Sometimes things just don’t show up at all in search, leading you to conclude those songs must not be on the service. But if you navigate to the artist page and go through their albums, you can often find the song! For example, I wanted to add “LUST. - Kendrick Lamar”. I tried all kinds of variations of it, in caps, without caps, with and without the fullstop, and it didn’t show up at all. It gave me “Lust - Kraux”, “Lust - Tormention”, “Lust - Vagora” but nothing from Kendrick. Yet if I navigate to his artist page, I can find the album “HUMBLE.” and right there, in the middle, “LUST. - Kendrick Lamar”. Why does this not show up in search?!
    Likewise, I often found searching for a song name would yield results which weren’t a direct match before those which were. For example, I searched for a song “Frankfurt Main - Stimming”, and the top results were “Frankfurt am Main”, “Ein Gruss aus Frankfurt am Main”, “Quellkartoffel und Dupp Dupp”, all from different artists. If I added the artist “Stimming” to the search, only then would the song show up. Why does searching “Frankfurt Main” bring up a song called “Quellkartoffel und Dupp Dupp” before a song which is an exact match for the search term?!
  7. Playlists do not carry over from GPM
    Yeah, this one is a bit ridiculous. I wanted to give the service a proper try, but had to spend around 7 hours total manually reconstructing all my playlists from GPM and Spotify. I feel like transferring these over should definitely have been available at launch.
  8. Videos on YouTube do not integrate well with the official song listings.
    One of the big selling points of the service is the fact you can toggle between just audio and the video for songs you listen to. However, this only works if you add the YouTube video listing for a song to your library (with lower sound quality as a result). For example, I searched for “Breezeblocks - alt-j” to add to my library. I found the song listing (with categorisation, album art, and higher sound quality) so naturally added that to my playlist instead of the official video on YouTube. The two are not linked, so there is no video associated with the song, even though there is a music video on YouTube. This feature therefore only works if you opt for the lower quality versions of songs, which seems like a pretty poor implementation to me. The official song audio uploads should be associated with their respective YouTube music videos, and they currently are not.
  9. The adaptive icon in Android 8.0+ is pretty ugly.
    A white YouTube play button inside a red circle surrounded by a white circle inside a larger red circle inside a white circle. Really, Google?

Sorry very noob question.

I've setup a simple tasker . When connect to my work Wi-Fi it sets my phone to silent and sends whatsapp if it between 830 to 9am.

But I find the whatsapp message doesn't get send unless I remove the 830 to 9 am part.

Any clues?

Lawn From Hell Saved by Mower From Heaven

Hack a Day - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 11:30

It’s that time of year again, at least in the northern hemisphere. Everything is alive and growing, especially that narrow-leafed non-commodity that so many of us farm without tangible reward. [sonofdodie] has a particularly hard row to hoe—his backyard is one big, 30° slope of knee-ruining agony. After 30 years of trudging up and down the hill, his body was telling him to find a better way. But no lawn service would touch it, so he waited for divine inspiration.

And lo, the answer came to [sonofdodie] in a trio of string trimmers. These Whirling Dervishes of grass grazing are mounted on a wheeled plywood base so that their strings overlap slightly for full coverage. Now he can sit in the shade and sip lemonade as he mows via rope and extension cord using a mower that cost about $100 to build.

These heavenly trimmers have been modified to use heavy nylon line, which means they can whip two weeks’ worth of rain-fueled growth with no problem. You can watch the mower shimmy down what looks like the world’s greatest Slip ‘n Slide hill after the break.

Yeah, this video is two years old, but somehow we missed it back then. Ideas this fresh that tackle age-old problems are evergreen, unlike these plots of grass we must maintain. There’s more than one way to skin this ecological cat, and we’ve seen everything from solar mowers to robotic mowers to mowers tied up to wind themselves around a stake like an enthusiastic dog.

Thanks for the tip, [Itay]!

BlueHarvest 7.0.5 - Disable DS_Store creation and more.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 11:01

BlueHarvest is an exterminator for your Mac's unnecessary Desktop Service Store (DS_Store) and resource fork (_AppleDouble) files.

Whether you manage a version control system or just want to maximize your available memory, DS_Store and _AppleDouble files are a nuisance. Get BlueHarvest, and give those superfluous files the boot.

A clean Mac is a happy Mac
  • Keep it clean. Blue Harvest does more than remove existing files -- it blocks new ones from being created.
  • Easy interface. With BlueHarvest, a less cluttered Mac is only two clicks away.
  • Instant access. Want to clean up a folder without launching BlueHarvest? Simply control-click.

Version 7.0.5:
  • Fixed a bug where preference changes sometimes weren't saved.
  • Fixed a bug where blacklist items wouldn't be added to new disks.

  • OS X 10.10 or later
