Vista, Visual Studio 2008, Intel Suite and IMSL

Since the first post on Visual Studio and Intel Fortran I have made some substantial modifications to my setup.

First of all - for a long period of time - I went back to Microsoft XP and installed the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Premier Partner Edition, which shipped with my copy of the academic version of Intel Visual Fortran 10.1 Professional Edition with IMSL - no problems.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 was released some months ago on MSDNAA, and some weeks ago Intel released updates with the relevant interfaces. Now I have decided to give Vista another shot. I have purchased the Intel® Software Development Suite Student Edition for Windows (because of the included optimization tools), installed Visual Studio 2008 and then the Intel suite (plus my 'old' copy of IMSL).

The interested reader can find screenshots attached, that describe my choice of Project Properties and Tools Options in Visual Studio 2008.
My values in Project Properties -> Linker -> Input -> Additional Dependencies:
imsl.lib imslsuperlu.lib imslhpc_l.lib imsls_err.lib imslmpistub.lib mkl_c.lib mkl_ia32.lib libguide.lib

When I use IMSL procedures I have the following statement in my .F90 files
INCLUDE 'link_fnl_static.h'

Any comments on how to use Intel IPP and MPI would be nice!

HackRF on Windows 8

This technical note is based on an extract from thread. I have made several changes and added recommendations. I have experienced lot of latency using GnuRadio and HackRF on Pentoo Linux, so I wanted to try out GnuRadio on Windows.

HackRF One is a transceiver, so besides SDR capabilities, it can also transmit signals, inkluding sweeping a given range, uniform and Gaussian signals. Pentoo Linux provides the most direct access to HackRF and toolboxes. Install Pentoo Linux on a separate drive, then you can use osmocom_siggen from a terminal to transmit signals such as near-field GSM bursts, which will only be detectable within a meter.

Installation of MGWin and cmake: Download and install the following packages:
- MinGW Setup (Go to the Installer directory and download setup file)
- CMake (I am using CMake 3.2.2 and I installed it in C:\CMake, this path is important in the commands we must send in the MinGW shell)
Download and extract the packages respectively in the path C:\MinGW\msys\…

Example: Beeswarm plot in R


data <- read.dta("C:/Users/hellmund/Documents/MyStataDataFile.dta")





png(file="C:/Users/hellmund/Documents/il6.png", bg="transparent")

beeswarm(data$il6~data$group,data=data, method=c("swarm"),pch=16,pwcol=data$Gender,xlab='',ylab='il6',ylim=c(0,20))


boxplot(data$il6~data$group, data=data, add = T, names = c("","",""), col="#0000ff22")

Example: Business cards typeset with LaTeX

So you enjoy the quality of a professional typesetting system? You got Avery labels, a working MikTeX and the ticket package installed...
You might find some assistance from a half criminal paranoid zealot system administrator, willing to guide you through a dinosaur kingdom of TeX ... but that kind of assistance might also just leave you with nothing.

It was easy to get the layout of the labels with the option zw32010, but how about page margins? I tried to set things straight with the layouts package (\usepackage{layouts}\currentpage \pagedesign), but then there was still some unwanted white space and margins...

To make things less complicated I decided to make a single card. The solution is a hack because it needs customization (with voffset and hoffset as you see n the TeX code below) but the adjustment is more straightforward, especially if you use the boxed option with ticket.

The card was converted to png with Ghostscript and I could easily print the business cards with Averys …
