Media players appeared long ago, but their heyday began with the mass spread of personal computers powerful enough to play video files. This coincided with the mass spread of operating systems and other software with graphical user interface. However, a program with a graphical user interface is dualistic in its nature: there is a code responsible for graphical user interface, for the appearance and there is a code - for performing the task the given application has been created for in the first place. Both code complexes consume system resources, their response time to user actions makes up certain amount of waiting time. And in cases or concepts when appearance is taken as less important - less important to the point of sparing or almost sparing to employ it - console applications, among others, appear. Moreover, the segmentation of the GUI and of the engine makes it easier to change the graphical user interface or perform complex automated operations.

The scheme is implemented for media players for Windows as well. MPlayer, for instance, in its usual form is a console application, starting up quickly, having fast response to user actions, consuming system resources almost entirely for its immediate task. And on this basis if desired, one or another graphical interface may be added for creating, all in all, a new application.

Mobile-friendly HTML table


If an HTML table is too wide, having too much data, it may not shrink anymore, it gets wider than the available space and breaks page layout. An horizontal scroll added to the table fixes it up. Example: 12345678910 Table_data_1 Table_data_2 Table_data_3 Table_data_4 Table_data_5 Table_data_6 Table_data_7 Table_data_8 Table_data_9 Table_data_10 HTML / XHTML. Code: <table> <tr> <th>1</th> <th>2</th> <th>3</th> <th>4</th> <th>5</th> <th>6</th> <th>7</th> <th>8</th> <th>9</th> <th>10</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Table_data_1</td> <td>Table_data_2</td> <td>Table_data_3</td> <td>Table_data_4</td> <td>Table_data_5</td> <td>Table_data_6</td> <td>Table_data_7</td> <td>Table_data_8</td> <td>Table_data_9</td> <td>Table_data_10</td> </tr> </table> CSS. Code: table {display: block; overflow-x: auto;} /* Extra CSS, just styling the look: */ table {border-collapse: collapse;} table td,th {padding: 10px; border: 1px #000 solid;} Note: the CSS property of display: block makes the table to occupy only as much space horizontally as it is needed to contain the data without shrinking. Not more, not making itself to stretch from the leftmost to the rightmost sides of the available space - even if width: 100% is added to CSS. Example: 123 Table_data_1 Table_data_2 Table_data_3 [ 1 ] As well as Netscape 9.0. [ 2 ] As well as Netscape 9.0.

FTP in DOS


FTP in DOS. mTCP mTCP is a suite containing several utilities, one of which is FTP. It is similar to the FTP client of various Windows, running in Command Prompt. In order to install and use mTCP: 1. mTCP [ Home page ] 2. Packet driver for Ethernet network card: http://www.crynwr.com/drivers/ http://www.georgpotthast.de/sioux/packet.htm 3. Create a folder, for example C:\DRIVERS\. Put there: a packet driver for Ethernet network card. 4. Set up network. For example, by means of Microsoft Network Client 3.0 [ How-to page ] 5. Start packet driver. In the case discussed it is: C:\DRIVERS\PCIPKT.COM 0x60 6. Unpack the archive with mTCP into a folder, C:\SOFT\MTCP for instance, and create a tcp.cfg file in it with the strings: PACKETINT 0x60 HOSTNAME FTP_IN_DOS The value of PACKETINT - the interrupt number used in the packet driver starting. The value of HOSTNAME - any. 7. Start DHCP.EXE (DHCP will set up mTCP for work with the network): DHCP 8. Start FTP: FTP [ FTP address / host ] There will be a prompt for a name, after that - the password. Next, it is better to switch to passive mode: XFERMODE PASSIVE [ The list of the main commands supported by FTP of mTCP is available in ftp.txt, included in mTCP suite archive ] To exit: QUIT mTCP - GNU GPL v3.
