Yeah, if I just put in three dummy values in v2, it works fine.
the Collections fill method doesn't work on the Vector class.
Is there a comprable method in the Vector class that will fill the collection with values?
just curious
One thing that we have to remember is that not everything that Microsoft makes capitolizes. Almost 3 times as many people use Apache over IIS. Microsoft didn't develop C or C++. The reason those languages hit it off so big is because they are so readily available. Of course they hit it off big because they're scalable and robust, but many languages have been robust and haven't made it anywhere. You can get C++ compilers for windows, Linux, Unix, free compilers, expensive compilers etc. If Microsoft creates a language, they will likely safeguard it against other companies wanting to create their own versions of it. That will be it's downfall. Take java, you can download JDK for free, you can buy Visual Cafe, JBuilder, you can download Forte. My guess is, if Microsoft follows their current pattern, they will make everything proprietary and that will spell out it's demise. I don't believe who ever spouted off that 95% of people use MS windows. Are you forgetting everyone who uses a Mac or who uses Linux?
Of course, I am from a more Open Source nature so my views are slightly tainted, but that's besides the point. Just because MS makes it, doesn't mean it's best. If MS makes a genuinely superior language and adheres to at least some of the openness that other languages have (such as C/C++, Java, Perl) then it very well may be in contention. But I believe that MS will cut off their own foot and make everything very closed and we'll just have a glorified Visual Basic on our hands.
As far as .Net goes, I'm not impressed. the government didn't let AT&T get away with domination and I have a feeling that they will do the same with MS.
My $.02 (probably a little more even)

Does it only quit working when your computer is idle? Or does it stop working purely at random?

Nope, I haven't had any problems. Except I was getting some wierd compile time errors, that had nothing to do with my program (such as an error on a line of code that didn't even exist). However, it was my mistake why it was doing it in the first place, it's because I created some wierd symbolic links, but seems to be working fine now.

well, I'm asking because I only use Linux. I don't have Windows
and actually have no use for Windows. I currently use an X version of vi and command line jdk. I'm all for making my life
easier, and if Forte can do that, then it's worth the time invested. And you're right about it sucking up memory, it is a memory hog.

Hello,
Is Forte for Java by Sun a good alternative to vi and command line JDK? I program solely on the Linux platform and am not really sure of alternatives to what I am using now. Forte seems like a very powerful development tool, but is it worth the time to learn? Will it weaken my programming skill or enhance it?
Thanks a lot,

If you would like to delete a directory and all of it's subdirectories, type rm -rf <directory>
so if i wanted to delete my entire usr directory, I would type
rm -rf /usr
be careful, this isn't windows, if you type rm -rf /, it will delete everything without warning because -f means force (no matter what)
post another message if that doesn't do the trick

Check your hard drive space. You can use the df command. That's kind of a wierd error because you are allowed to have files up to 12 tb's in size. Might want to try using su -l postgres
as far as switch to a console while in Xwindows, no problem. just hit ctrl-alt-F2, or any other F key up to 7. F7 is the one that xwindows is on, if you logged in via command line and then ran startx, F1 will be the console you logged in on and 7 the one X is on

If you want to increase performance I would recommend compiling the driver into the kernel. I'm not sure if the tulip driver can be compiled in the kernel (some proprietary drivers that aren't GPL'd can't be). But if it can, you'll get better performance than if it was a module.

Well,
Your using the 2.4 kernel, so you'll want to use iptables (it's better anyway). First things first, make sure iptables is compiled into the kernel, second, what commands are you typing in?. Are you automating it with a shell sript or typing it in at the command line?
maybe I can help a little with some info
and by the way, great choice of a packetfilter, the new netfilter package in 2.4 is great

I have read through much of the Dietel and Dietel Java How to Program book and I am currently beginning to study for the SCJP exam. In reviewing the material in Sybex's Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide I realize that there are some gaps in my knowledge. I saw in other posts that people have similar feelings towards the Dietel and Dietel book that I have. Any recomendations on good companion books that I could get to help fill in the gaps?

Thanks,
Ryan
