Computing Tools for Modeling, Optimization and Simulation: by Fred Glover (auth.), Manuel Laguna, José Luis González

By Fred Glover (auth.), Manuel Laguna, José Luis González Velarde (eds.)

Computing instruments for Modeling, Optimization and Simulation displays the necessity for holding the wedding among operations examine and computing with a view to create extra effective and strong software program instruments within the years forward. The 17 papers incorporated during this quantity have been rigorously chosen to hide quite a lot of issues on the topic of the interface among operations study and desktop technological know-how. the quantity comprises the now perennial purposes of rnetaheuristics (such as genetic algorithms, scatter seek, and tabu seek) in addition to learn on worldwide optimization, wisdom administration, software program rnaintainability and object-oriented modeling. those issues replicate the complexity and diversity of the issues that present and destiny software program instruments needs to be in a position to tackling. The OR/CS interface is usually on the middle of profitable purposes and the advance of recent methodologies, making the learn during this e-book a proper reference sooner or later.
The editors' aim for this ebook has been to extend the curiosity within the interface of computing device technology and operations examine. either researchers and practitioners will take advantage of this e-book. the academic papers may perhaps spark the curiosity of practitioners for constructing and using new thoughts to advanced difficulties. furthermore, the publication comprises papers that discover new angles of well-established tools for difficulties within the quarter of nonlinear optimization and combined integer programming, which professional researchers in those fields may well locate fascinating.

Sed & awk (2nd Edition) by Arnold Robbins, Dale Dougherty

By Arnold Robbins, Dale Dougherty

sed & awk describes textual content processing courses which are mainstays of the UNIX programmer's toolbox.

sed is a "stream editor" for modifying streams of textual content that would be too huge to edit as a unmarried dossier, or that may be generated at the fly as a part of a bigger info processing step. the commonest operation performed with sed is substitution, exchanging one block of textual content with another.

awk is a whole programming language. not like many traditional languages, awk is "data driven" -- you specify what sort of info you have an interest in and the operations to be played while that info is came upon. awk does many stuff for you, together with instantly beginning and shutting information records, interpreting files, breaking the documents up into fields, and counting the documents. whereas awk offers the gains of most normal programming languages, it's also a few unconventional gains, corresponding to prolonged common expression matching and associative arrays. sed & awk describes either courses intimately and encompasses a bankruptcy of instance sed and awk scripts.

This version covers positive factors of sed and awk which are mandated by way of the POSIX regular. This such a lot particularly impacts awk, the place POSIX standardized a brand new variable, CONVFMT, and new services, toupper() and tolower(). The CONVFMT variable specifies the conversion layout to exploit while changing numbers to strings (awk used to exploit OFMT for this purpose). The toupper() and tolower() services each one take a (presumably combined case) string argument and go back a brand new model of the string with all letters translated to the corresponding case.

In addition, this variation covers GNU sed, newly on hand because the first version. It additionally updates the 1st version assurance of Bell Labs nawk and GNU awk (gawk), covers mawk, an extra freely to be had implementation of awk, and in brief discusses 3 advertisement types of awk, MKS awk, Thompson Automation awk (tawk), and Videosoft (VSAwk).
