Workspace Object Properties

Helen Feddema O'Reilly Media PDF


Chapter 4: Workspaces Collection and Workspace Object wks2.Close

End Sub


Although Delete is listed as a method of the Workspaces collection, it will cause an error if you try to use it. Just use the Close method of the Workspace object to remove a workspace you have created, as in the preceding code sample.


Much like the Delete method, although Refresh is listed as a method of the Workspaces collection, it is nonfunctional for the Workspaces collection. However, a call to the Refresh method generates neither a compile-time nor a runtime error; it simply has no effect.

CHAPTER FOUR The impact on our conception of God

Willy Obrist Karnac Books PDF


The impact on our conception of God

eligious sciences distinguish between gods as creators and as deities close to man. On a primitive level, all great deities embodied both divine qualities. The slow but steady process of the moving apart of these two conceptions can be observed historically in the Ancient Egyptian Empire in the so-called Shabaka inscription of the theological scriptures of Memphis. In that early phase of the Egyptian Empire—after 3000 BC—“the pushing up of heaven” was realised to such an extent that the creator of the world—Ptati the Very

Great—was considered to be transcendent. That meant that the theologians were faced with the problem of explaining to the people how this god, who was so far away, transcending everything that could be comprehended by man, could hear people’s prayers and smell the smoke of their offerings.

The problem was solved by the paradox of the essentially equal divine son, whose essence is the same as the one of his father, and who is, at the same time, close to the people. Then the Egyptians “recognised” God’s son in the sun as a solar being. About 2000 years later, the father–son theologem was integrated into the Christian idea of

5. Web Server Control, Monitoring, Upgrade, and Maintenance

Stas Bekman O'Reilly Media ePub

This chapter covers everything about administering a running mod_perl server. First, we will explain techniques for starting, restarting, and shutting down the server. As with Perl, there's more than one way to do it, and each technique has different implications for the server itself and the code it runs. A few widely used techniques for operating a server are presented. You may choose to use one of the suggested techniques or develop your own.

Later in the chapter, we give instructions on upgrading and disabling scripts on a live server, using a three-tier scheme, and monitoring and maintaining a web server.

To start Apache manually, just run its executable. For example, on our machine, a mod_perl-enabled Apache executable is located at /home/httpd/httpd_perl/httpd_perl. So to start it, we simply execute:

This executable accepts a number of optional arguments. To find out what they are (without starting the server), use the -h argument:

The most interesting arguments will be covered in the following sections. Any other arguments will be introduced as needed.

INTERVIEW ONE. The origins of a psychoanalyst

Didier Anzieu Karnac Books ePub

GT: Didier Anzieu, before we begin in earnest, could you tell us a little about yourself? You were born, I think, at Melun, Seine-et-Marne, on 8 July 1923.

DA: Yes, I came from the Paris area. As a child and adolescent I had the advantage of living in a fairly small town of human proportions, surrounded by fields and forests, while at the same time benefiting from the closeness of Paris. My father’s family is Mediterranean. My father—an only child—was born at Sete, a port in Languedoc, where my grandfather was a baker. My mother came from a large family. Her home was a hamlet in Cantal, near Mauriac, in the Massif-Central. My father was accustomed to the sun and the sea; my mother, to a rather harsh continental climate. Their union was a far from … temperate one.

GT: Your origins are rather southerly on both sides… .

DA: The south of France has remained a constant climatic and cultural point of reference for me. It was an accident of their careers as minor officials (both my father and my mother worked in the administration of Posts and Telecommunications—what was then called the P.T.T.) that brought them together at Melun and led them to marry there. When they did not want me to understand them, they used to speak an Occitan dialect among themselves.
