1. Dreamweaver CS5 Guided Tour

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>Dreamweaver CS5 is a powerful program for designing and building websites. If you're brand-new to Dreamweaver, turn to What Dreamweaver Is All About to get a quick look at what this program can do and what's new in this latest version. This chapter provides a basic overview of the different windows, toolbars, and menus you'll use every time you build a web page. You'll also learn to set up the program so you can begin building web pages. And, because <em>doing</em> is often a better way to learn than just <em>reading</em>, you'll get a step-by-step tour of web page designthe Dreamweaver wayin the tutorial at the end of this chapter.</p><p>Dreamweaver CS5's interface shares the look and feel of other programs in the Adobe "Creative Suite," like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash. Out-of-the-box, Dreamweaver organizes its various windows as a unified whole (see Figure1-1). That is, the edges of all the different windows touch; resizing one window affects the others around it. This type of interface is common on Windows computers, but Mac fans accustomed to independent floating windows might find this look strange. Give it a chance. As you'll soon see, this design has some benefits. (But, if you just can't stand this locked-in-place style, you can detach the various panels and then place them wherever you'd like on the screen; see Organizing Your Workspace for directions.)</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362297-dreamweaver-cs5-the-missing-manual">See more</a>

11. Project Communication

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p> <strong>The speed of the project is proportional to the speed at which information moves between people's heads.</strong> </p><p> <em>Alistair Cockburn</em> </p><p> <em>The End of Software Engineering</em> </p><p>This chapter discusses how communication can be improved within a project by using a range of different tools, including web pages.</p><p>Imagine if all builds took no time at all and we all wrote perfect code. Then the limiting factor in how long software takes to write would probably be how well the people in a project communicated ideas with each other. Even back in the real world, where we all have to wait for our builds and where bugs somehow spontaneously appear in our code, poor communication in a project still wastes enormous amounts of everyone's time. Many cases of poor communication are for complicated and emotional reasons, and when a group of people don't want to communicate with each other about something, no mere tool can make it happen. However, providing a group with different communication tools can encourage them to communicate better.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362920-practical-development-environments">See more</a>

17. C API

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>This chapter covers the C API provided by MySQL. The first part provides a basic tutorial on how to connect to MySQL and how to query MySQL with C and the C API. Following the tutorial is an alphabetical listing of MySQL functions in the C API with explanations and, in most cases, examples. At the end of this chapter is a listing of special data types for the C API. For the examples in this chapter, I have used a database for a fictitious computer support business. The database contains one table with client work requests (<code>workreq</code>) and another with client contact information (<code>clients</code>).</p><p>This section presents the basic tasks you need to use the C API.</p><p>When writing a C program to interact with MySQL, you first need to prepare variables that will store data necessary for a MySQL connection and query results, and then you need to establish a connection to MySQL. To do this easily, you need to include a couple of C header files (as shown in the code example): <em>stdio.h</em> for basic C functions and variables, and <em>mysql.h</em> for special MySQL functions and definitions. These two files come with C and MySQL, respectively; you shouldnt have to download them from the Web if both were installed properly:</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362180-mysql-in-a-nutshell">See more</a>

<p>Pour russir crer une telle ambiance, il eut t ncessaire de crer un net contraste entre le premier et le dernier plan de la pice. Ce contraste nest cependant pas assez net dans le pome. Le caractre rustique du premier plan est aussi vanescent que les personnages du <em>Paradis Terrestre.</em> Tous les autres personnages sont semblables des ombres, de telle sorte que les paroles du plan le plus profond nous semblent plus proches que tout le reste du pome. <em>LAmour suffit</em> ressemble une romance mais il sagit dfinitivement dune pice de thtre caractre religieux, un aveu de foi fait presque involontairement. Lamour auquel le pome se rfre nest pas lamour dun tre humain envers un autre, mme sil sagit de paroles susceptibles de favoriser lapparition de cet amour. On est plutt en prise avec un tat desprit qui, pour ceux qui le connaissent, dpasse le bonheur. En effet, il sagit de ce quoi lhomme peut aspirer de meilleur dans cette vie.</p><p><em>LAmour suffit</em> fut un semi-chec en tant que pome romantique dans la mesure o Morris narrivait plus masquer dans ses histoires tranges son dgot de la ralit. La partie romantique du pome se trouve l par simple habitude et elle devient aussi vanescente quun souvenir qui nous chappe. En effet, la musique des mots nous fait entirement oublier ce romantisme. Ce nest plus le chanteur paresseux dun monde vide de sens que nous entendons dans la musique des vers de ce pome mais plutt un pote en train de trouver son style en se basant sur sa propre exprience.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615608-william-morris">See more</a>
