Well anyway he uploaded a load of results with wrong-linefeeds in them, probably from UNIX.  This annoyed the stats generator which temporarily thought he'd scored 3.56%.

If you are 'bronson', then please get the Linux distribution from http://www.project4009.de/edownload.htm that includes a reliable results-uploader script.  smile

Err if his name was "Boson" you'd have a harder time finding him.  Ha ha.  Oh dear god my physics lecturer has a BAD sense of humor.

along these lines:

Another version of that: there are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who do not.

I always heard "There's only three kinds of musicians, those who can count and those who can't."

hi!

I'm using that very package.  I'm running it on debian stable, debian testing and redhat 7.2 / 7.3 systems.  Is the package ok?  Also the source package doesn't compile under redhat 7.2. Nothing serious It's just missing one #include.  How should the linefeeds be handled?  I could check what's wrong...

Should I shutdown the clients while debugging?

Also the packages are named .tgz which is wrong.  They are bzip2 compressed tar archives so they should be .tar.bz2. I downloaded the package couple of times and wondered why I can't open it with tar -xzf.  If it had been named .tar.bz2 then tar -xjf would have been obvious.

Anyone interested in some kind of script for checking for new version and autoinstalling?  I have seven boxes for this project and manually installing is bit of a pain.  Some of the machines are connected with 9600 bps serial cables with tcp/ip over ssh over tcp/ip over ppp so uploading new version takes quite long.

Hmm maybe your FTP client has a different text/binary default setting than others.  When I download the files from the FTP server, I use the default setting of the Windows FTP client (which is probably ascii) to do so, and Muon1 uploads using "ascii" mode.

Aha, I've just got an e-mail from [Muon.FG]7F4 (Ronny) about this:
Hm, the manualsend script from maverick seems to have still some bugs, 
so the program sed he use to replace \r\n with \n doesn't do this on all
systems , on a SuSE 8.0 I use, it wasn't replaced: 0D0A were uploaded
which caused problems: when you downloaded from the server the 0A is
replaced by 0D0A -> you get 0D0D0A

maybe the wrong filenames are a similar problem.

To solve this problem(s), I've decided to program a real manualsend.  The
needed parts are developed, so I only have to assemble it.  I guess I can
release the beta3 version (maybe with thread support - I don't know yet)
tomorrow.


This seems to describe the sort of problem I am having here.
