Here's another trig doodle.. abstract_0005.bas sort of interesting , but not symmetrical.. dim as single c1 , c2 dim as single s1 , s2 dim as single x1 , x2 dim as single y1 , y2 dim as single deg1 , deg2 dim as single rad1 dim as single rad2 dim as integer xctr, yctr, radius, divisions, fullcircle,...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat I'll give compression a rest , Now it's back to trig doodles... I'm rebuilding my patterns folder with all new doodles.. Here's abstract 0003 , so i can get 9,999 doodles ... looks a little like a snail. dim as single c1,c2 dim as single s1,s2 dim as single x1,x2 dim as single y1,y2 dim as ...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat I found out why it was compressing... if place > 0 then if place mod 2 = 1 then mid( chrs , place , 2 ) = "--" mid( outs , place , 2 ) = mkshort( num ) end if end if mid( chrs , place , 2 ) = "--" , when the input , gets to "--" , is why it was compressing , If...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat This one compresses... Not sure how.. Can you look over the code , to see if i have an error somewhere? I figured that 1,000,000 bytes in , has all 65,536 values , so it shouldn't compress , but it does.. ( takes like 5 minutes per loop. ) But 1,000,000 bytes in compresses to under 930,000 ...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat This one ; doesn't know if it wants to compress or not.. Just keep pressing a key and watch the numbers.. Declare Function compress_loop( chrs as string ) as string Declare Function decompress_loop( chrs as string ) as string Namespace Zlibrary #inclib "zlib" Extern "C" ...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat I don't believe you can have a neutron star.. The probability , is just too vast. I think there's an ether , and it eddies into particles and the elasticity of the ether pulls the particles together to make atoms and then the elasticity pulls the atoms together to make molecules. Maybe the ...

Re: Squares

@Dodicat This compresses: For 3 bits in : ( Identifying the set bits. ) 000 = 3 001 = 0 , bit 1 set 010 = 1 , bit 2 set 011 = 10 , bits 2 and 1 set 100 = 2 , bit 3 set 101 = 20 , bits 3 and 1 set 110 = 21 , bits 3 and 2 set 111 = 210 , bits 3 and 2 and 1 are set I can't figure out how to end the set...

Re: Squares

As far as compression goes: 0 01 10 11 00 01 10 1 Both will compress... So it works... It's a success.. lossless compression accomplished.. But it can't be decompressed... 'Cause i haven't been able to tell where the single 0 or 1 is located in the output string.. So far no one else has any clue as ...

Re: Squares

@angros47 Most of my posts are directed to Richard and Dodicat or both. Why do other people reply? and complain? You don't have to click on "Squares"... It's your choice. Sometimes Richard is a great help , otherwise , he replies with sarcasm. Then i know it's a failure. Dodicat has been a...

Re: Squares

For 3 bits in:

if 1 + 1
if 1 + 01
if 1 + 11
+ 0

Combos:

0 = 0
1 = 10
2 = 010
3 = 110
4 = 1010
5 = 1110
6 = 01110
7 = 101110

There's no combos that equal others , and it doesn't compress.

Back to the drawing board...

I'll try stepping by 32 bits , and 64 bits.

Re: Squares

3 bits in ( 0 to 7 ) if 1 + 1 if 1 + 10 if 1 +11 + 0 Combos: 0 = 0 1 = 10 2 = 100 3 = 110 4 = 1100 5 = 1110 6 = 10110 7 = 110110 There is no 00 or 01. So if you run into 0's then you know its all 0's. If you run into a 01 the you know it's a 10 1. There's the possibility of a 10 , 0 being mistaken f...

If you click on install , it wont remove the old , obsolete kernels. So your \boot partition , will get full of old kernels , and the ugrade will fa...
