TeXTable is an extremely simple-to-use editor for LaTeX tables. The table may be edited cell-by-cell, or in text format, allowing fast changes with both approaches. Additionally, transformations may be applied to groups of cells, such as transposition or surrounding their text with $$
Usage: Select a formula (may contain white characters like space, tabulator, new line, carriagereturn), choose Calculate & Append, Calculate & Replace, Calculate & Show or Calculate & Copy in the services menu or or press the associated shortcuts if available. If the formula is not correct (or the result is undefined) CalcService just beeps or displays an error message in the panel.
Operators/Numbers: • floating point values: x.y or x,y • add, subtract, multiply, divide, modulo, exponential: +-*/%^ • assign: = Assigned variables are persistent and still available the next time you're going to use CalcService. To define multiple variables in one formula, separate the definitions with a semicolon (";"), as part of a formula use parenthesis around the definition (see examples below) • sign: +- • parenthesis: ()
Functions (case-insensitive): • exp (base e) • exp10 (base 10) • exp2 (base 2) • ln (base e) • log or log10 (base 10) • log2 (base 2) • sin (RAD) • asin (-1...1) • cos (RAD) • acos (-1...1) • tan (RAD) • atan • sqrt (square-root) • abs (absolute) • sign • fact (factorial for statistics, combinations and variations etc.) • ceil • floor • round • sinh • asinh • cosh • acosh • tanh • atanh
Constants (case-insensitive): • pi (3.1415926535897932385) • e (2.7182818284590452354) • c (299792458.0 m/s) • g (66.732e-12 N*m^2/kg^2) • e0 (1.6021892e-19 As) • u0 (1.2566e-6 V*s/(A*m) • q (1.602189e-19 C) • me (9.109534e-31 kg) • mp (1.672614e-27 kg) • mn (1.67492e-27 kg)
If you want to change those values or define new constants, set one or more variables using the assignment-operator.
(Actually, its official website is HERE.) If you don't know what DS9 is, let me just quote MacUpdate.Com's introduction:
SAOImage DS9 is an astronomical imaging and data visualization application. DS9 supports FITS images and binary tables, multiple frame buffers, region manipulation, and many scale algorithms and colormaps. It provides for easy communication with external analysis tasks and is highly configurable and extensible.
O.K.~Just download and run it! CIAO!
I hope MacUpdate.Com will also tell me HEASOFT, CIAO etc's updates in the future =D
I have been waiting its invitation for couple months. Finally I got it today.
You may not heard about this wonderful software b4. Let me shortly introduce Skitch here~very very short! It is a software letting you easily snap, draw and share photos. But currently you just can get it by other's invitation. (I got mine because I registered to test it several months ago.) Please have a look there, you'll find a introducing movie there.
If you still can not find someone to invite you, just try Jing. I have introduced Jing few days ago. It's like Skitch, but it is free and will be always free, you will have to buy Skitch in the future.
Today some software release their updates, just like the photo above, WoW released its updates again. By the way, Microsoft Office 2004 released its 11.3.8 update yesterday. So go to update them now~Ciao!
I have introduced it couple months ago, so why do I want to review it again?
Hum~That I may have to run IRAF is the main reason. It includes IRAF and other needing packages, and the installation is quite easy. So I think it is the best solution~ for students taking "Observational Astronomy."
If you don't know what it is till now, let me briefly introduce it again~
Scisoft is a project within ESO to provide a collection of astronomical software utilities in a uniform way at all four ESO sites and to make them available to the outside world. The current version, Scisoft 7 (Beta), June 2007, is only available for Fedora Core 6 Linux. The previous version, Scisoft v6.1 September 2006, was for Fedora Core 3, Scisoft v5 was available for RedHat9 and earlier versions are also available for Solaris 8, Linux Redhat 6.2 and HP-UX 11. In addition a version of Scisoft for Mac OSX has been prepared by Nor Pirzkal and Francesco Pierfederici but it is not an ESO product. -- quotes from its website.
[ For Mac OSX Users ]
There are two versions of Scisoft OSX. The first one is for G4 and G5 ppc based Macs. The second one is Intel specific and will work (fast) on any new Mac Book, Mac Book Pro, or Mac Pro. The two versions contain almost the same packages but the Intel one is the one that will continue to be maintained regularly in the future.
You can download the PPC version from here You can download the Intel version from here
-- All information above is from HERE. Plz have a look b4 downloading it~
After installing, do not forget to modify your enviroments~ please go to /scisoft/(all)/bin and list all setup.* files. Choose the file which depends on the shell you are using, and edit your startup files.
For example, if you're using BASH, edit your '.profile' by adding the line~ " . /scisoft/bin/Setup.bash"!
