Practical Perforce

By Laura Wingerd

When builders construct software program, they can hold music of the entire varied models and all of the parts they use with software program configuration administration (SCM) structures. one of many extra well known SCM items is Perforce.

Authored by way of Perforce's personal vice chairman of product know-how, Practical Perforce is the proper supplement to the present product handbook, focusing much less at the 'how" and extra at the "why" and "when." The e-book is not just a important advent to Perforce,it's an enlightening source for these already accustomed to this flexible SCM product. no matter if you are a programmer, product supervisor, or construct engineer, you stand to profit from the various insider suggestions and concepts provided during this handy guide.

Practical Perforce is split into major elements. half I bargains a whirlwind technical journey, whole with cautious descriptions of simple and complicated Perforce instructions designed to provide you a baseline wisdom. half II describes the massive picture-using Perforce in a collaborative software program improvement. It outlines advised top practices and speedy exhibits the best way to enforce them with the Perforce operations brought partially I. during the publication, you are going to the way to maximize Perforce so it completes initiatives like those within the best demeanour possible:

  • Keep music of alterations as you behavior concurrent parallel paintings on files
  • Log activity
  • Generate reviews on who did what when
  • Compare, merge and department files
  • Store documents and dossier configurations
  • Restore misplaced computer virus fixes

Recognizing the pitfalls and practices of an SCM approach like Perforce is de facto necessary to generating stable software program. Now, with Practical Perforce, you will have the sting you must make certain success.

Elements of Automata Theory

By Jacques Sakarovitch

Automata conception lies on the beginning of computing device technology, and is essential to a theoretical figuring out of ways pcs paintings and what constitutes formal equipment. This treatise provides a rigorous account of the subject and illuminates its actual that means via taking a look at the topic in quite a few methods. the 1st a part of the booklet is organised round notions of rationality and recognisability. the second one half bargains with relatives among phrases realised by way of finite automata, which not just exemplifies the automata thought but in addition illustrates the diversity of its tools and its fields of software. Many routines are integrated, starting from those who try the reader, to people who are technical effects, to people who expand principles awarded within the textual content. ideas or solutions to a lot of those are integrated within the e-book.

Windows 7 Device Driver (Addison-Wesley Microsoft Technology Series)

“The bankruptcy on programming a KMDF motive force presents a very good instance for readers to work out a motive force being made.”

–Patrick Regan, community administrator, Pacific Coast Companies

 

The First Authoritative consultant to Writing strong, High-Performance home windows 7 machine Drivers

 

Windows 7 equipment driving force brings jointly the entire details skilled programmers have to construct quite trustworthy, high-performance home windows 7 drivers. the world over popular driving force improvement specialist Ronald D. Reeves indicates tips on how to utilize Microsoft’s strong new instruments and types; store money and time; and successfully convey reliable, strong drivers.

 

Drawing on his unsurpassed adventure as either a motive force developer and teacher, Reeves demystifies Kernel and consumer Mode motive force improvement, home windows motive force origin (WDF) structure, driving force debugging, and lots of different key themes. all through, he presents most sensible practices for all points of the driving force improvement strategy, illuminating his insights with confirmed pattern code. how you can

  • Use WDF to lessen improvement time, enhance procedure balance, and increase serviceability
  • Take complete benefit of either the consumer Mode driving force Framework (UMDF) and the Kernel Mode motive force Framework (KMDF)
  • Implement top practices for designing, constructing, and debugging either person Mode and Kernel Mode Drivers
  • Manage I/O requests and queues, self-managed I/O, synchronization, locks, plug-and-play, energy administration, gadget enumeration, and more
  • Develop UMDF drivers with COM
  • Secure Kernel Mode Drivers with secure defaults, parameter validation, counted UNICODE strings, and secure machine naming techniques
  • Program and troubleshoot WMI help in Kernel Mode Drivers
  • Utilize complex a number of I/O queuing techniques

Whether you’re developing home windows 7 drivers for laboratory apparatus, communications undefined, or the other equipment or know-how, this booklet may also help you construct construction code extra quick and get to marketplace sooner!
