As programmers, we are often asked to develop an interface to allow easier access to databases. In my case, I was dealing with a database structured using a snowflake schema. Certain tables held indices relating to other tables that contained the data. As an example, there were three levels of "Actions": "Objectives", "Recovery Actions", and "Action Steps". Any one of these could contain information on Priorities, Cost, Duration, Recovery Partners, and comments, along with the text of the action...

If you need a stable sorting algorithm that is fast and does not need extra storage space of O(N) then you should go straight past the usual O(N^2) sorts like Insertion Sort, Selection Sort and Bubble Sort. This application contains 2 in-place stable sorts that are much faster:

1. In-Place Merge Sort
2. Stable Quick Sort

This application demonstrates both algorithms and compares them with:

* Insertion Sort which is also stable and in-place
* Traditional M...

QuickSort was intended to be a very fast sort algorithm, with minimum execution time, a small code footprint, and the ability to sort a large quantity of data. I have been prompted to revisit QuickSort, a well thrashed topic, because several submissions and implementations have compromised speed for flexibility, and simplicity for one-size-fits-all complexity. Herein are suggestions for addressing those shortcomings, with code examples and a variety of implementations....

Using VBScript to sort servers by best response time - Uses custom ping function for XP and 2000

Read Reviews | Write Review |  Your Rating: 

Working on a script a while back, there was a need to sort a list of servers by the average response time. Being able to sort servers by their response times gives you the ability to ensure you are connecting to the best server based on your location and avoid servers that are down. Within the script, there are two functions: a custom ping function designed to work with XP and 2000, and the ServersByPingTime function which takes a list of servers and returns an array based on the best average re...

Lately there has been some discussion in our team on whether or not code reviews are needed and even practical and why you should want them in your development team. This may sound like obvious knowledge, but unfortunately it appears that some developers have an aversion against code reviews, whether it being their code being reviewed or it being them reviewing someone else's code. In this article we'll look into some of the reasons that makes developers feel this way and also we look into some ...

I couldn't put up with the standard Time part of the DateTimePicker any longer. Easy to use Date dropdown and non-existant Time dropdown. First I made the gTimePickerCntrl to pick the time in a couple of clicks using a clock-like interface. Second I needed a dropdown control to contain it.

Hello, and welcome to the 4th edition of the Winsock.NET component. Previous versions included Winsock2007, Winsock2005, and the original Winsock.NET. I have taken some time to try and make this the best version of the component you could want, and in doing so I decided to create a version for each version of the .NET framework (1.1, 2.0, and 3.5)! What started out as something to satisfy my own needs of the lack of Winsock support in the .NET framework has taken on a new direction....

Another functionality of this Fax editor is that the user can convert the .Tiff file to .PDF with the click of a button....

I have seen or done so several times, for my school projects, at work and etc. Recently, I did it again for my little fun project and got bitten by it. First, I forgot to set the flag somewhere sometimes. Second, the "dirty" code was so scattered that the flag got set/reset accidently and the YesNo dialog popped up surprisingly. Third, the dirty flag doesn't reflect the definition of dirty data. If user undoes changes, the data is not dirty but the applicaiton pops up the YesNo dialog. Last, and...
