X Window Manager Benchmarks (E17 on Top)

Post date: June 9, 2005, 14:06 Category: Benchmarks Views: 3735 Comments
Tutorial quote: I've been focusing on some stability issues of late in E17, but more importantly - speed. I've been doing a little profiling and shaving off cycles where I can find readily optimizable code. I have E17 starting in 0.52 seconds (from execute to usable desktop). Considering that involves loading and rendering and scaling a complex multi-leayered desktop background, loading multiple useful modules (pager, ibar, start, dropshadow, cpufreq handler, clock, etc.), then that's not too bad.

Now I'm a numbers man. I like numbers. I don't like vague "it's faster than X" or "that's slower than this" statements without numbers to back it up. I also like to play fair. Also given there are no "performance suites" i know of that measure window manager performance, I wrote a quick and dirty one.

How to build KDE 4

Post date: May 15, 2006, 22:05 Category: Installing Views: 2991 Comments
Tutorial quote: This topic describes how to build KDE 4 from subversion. I use an example way to show best practices. First, I get the build to work for the user kde-devel. This builds as well kdebase as kdelibs (arts is no longer needed). Then, I give some hints how to change code to KDE 4 for the case that you are in another KDE module.
To reduce complexity, we use the bash-shell (standard) throughout the tutorial.

A web server in a shell script

Post date: March 14, 2006, 08:03 Category: Programming Views: 16464 Comments
Tutorial quote: Suppose you want to experiment a little with web pages and CGI's, but you don't want the hassle of installing the full Apache package. This quick and dirty shell script could just be what you need.

Put simply, a web server is an application that sends local text files over the network to the clients that request them. If you let another program (for example inetd) deal with the network part, the web server could be reduced to a mere cat "$filename" to stdout. Of course, the difficult part would be to extract that filename out of the HTTP request string: nothing that a Bash script cannot easily do!
