Adding HTML Help to Your Applications
Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation Chapter 25.pdf
Sample Chapter 25 of Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation: Online help has become pretty much a given these days.

Configuring Your Desktop
06_LTPU05.pdf
So you’ve installed Fedora Core, you’ve logged in, and you’re facing a GUI desktop. What next? You’ve got two choices. Either leave it alone and just learn how to use what’s in front of you, or customize it—make it bend to your will. Hey, I know! Let’s do both! In this chapter, I’ll explain how to use the desktop “out of the box,” and then I’ll show you how to customize it by showing you how I customize my own desktop.

It's an interop world. We need to connect Windows and Linux machines. Here's how to access directories and files on a Windows NT server from a Linux workstation. As you start to work with Linux, you'll find that you need to be able to access files on a Windows network from a Linux workstation. You don't need to do anything complicated – perhaps just open files.

Customizing Your Development Environment
Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation Chapter 16.pdf
Sample Chapter 15 of Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation: It never ceases to amaze me to walk into a development shop and see how the developers work. The most mind-numbing experience is to watch a developer start up Visual FoxPro, and then issue three or four attempts of the “CD <current app dev directory>” command as his first step—because VFP’s default location is still set somewhere deep in the bowels of Program Files. Think of all the time you spend building applications to make other people more productive. Doesn’t it make sense to tune your own work environment? In this chapter, I’ll show you a number of techniques that you can use to make your daily work easier and more bug-proof.

Deciding on a Distribution: How and Why I Chose RedHat
installation_decidingonadistributor.doc
I began working with Linux seriously around the middle of summer of 2002 - Fourth of July week to be exact. My plan at the time was to install a number of distributions and evaluate each of them from the point of view of a Windows developer learning Linux. I was prepared for a lot of hard work, learning a lot, running into roadblocks, and generally getting my hands really dirty 'under the hood'.

DevGuide: The Sales Call
DevGuide3_11SalesCall_sample.pdf
Sample Chapter 11 of Developers Guide 3: In one of his early comedy albums, Bill Cosby hypothesized that graduation from a karate class was not the ultimate goal of taking such a class. Rather, he said, “Eventually, you want to get attacked.” In a similar vein, while the goal of marketing is initially to get phone calls, ultimately, it’s to make a sales call. More so than the phone call, an in-person visit is your best chance to set expectations while at the same time determining whether you want the job. This chapter covers the in-person sales call in detail.

But not all development fits into this one method, any more than all developers are the same or all development is the same. In this chapter, I’ll discuss what your options are for developing a custom software application.

From GUI to Text: A Windows User's Guide to Running Linux without a GUI
fromgui_totext.pdf
Most folks who are moving to Linux from Windows use distributions that by default have Linux start up with the GUI. All fine and good, but one side effect is that they often get stymied when they need to boot Linux to a text-based interface. This document describes how to perform a number of basic tasks in Linux, using only the text-based interface.

Installing Fedora Core Linux
installation_fedoracore.pdf
In mid 2003, Red Hat spun off their mainstream Red Hat distribution into a true Open Source project called "Fedora Core". FC, as it's known, differs from Red Hat Linux in a couple of specific ways ­first, you can only get it by downloading ISOs (or getting them from a friend), and second, it'll be updated on a regular basis, but strictly through Open Source means. Some have taken these changes to mean that FC will be unstable or otherwise unworthy of attention anymore, and thus have been reluctant to give it a try. That's not really fair ­most people think that FC is on a par with where "Red Hat 10" would have been at this time. Some people may not be convinced, so to give those doubting Thomas's in the audience a preview of what FC looks like, I use a liberal number of screen shots as well as detailed supporting explanations to show you how to install Fedora Core from scratch for desktop usage.

Installing MySQL from RPMs
mysql_installation.pdf
Installing MySQL on Linux is a reasonably straightforward procedure, and the documentation is excellent - organized, detailed, and with a lot of examples. However, there are still a lot of variations that you can encounter, and, as with any documentation team, there are still places where they have to assume a minimal level of knowledge, and if you're missing that knowledge, the procedure can still be difficult. The purpose of this document is to provide a supplement to the online documentation, with a detailed description of how to install MySQL from RPMs onto a Linux machine from the perspective of an experienced Windows programmer who is relatively new to Linux, and to provide background and perspective behind the steps.

Linux Network Printing with JetDirect

Hewlett Packard's JetDirect print server allows you to make a printer available to an entire network simply by plugging an Ethernet cable into the JetDirect device which then connects to the printer. All that's left is a little configuration. Or so the marketing literature says. It's a little more complicated than that in the real world, where you have to know all of the steps, and follow them in order. That said, once the entire process is laid out line by line, hooking up a JetDirect print server is fairly straightforward.

The Top Ten Command Window Tips

Power users can go a long way just using the graphical user interface (GUI) running on top of Linux. You can use the GUI for just about everything, from making changes to the system configuration to launching programs. However, the GUI is a fairly recent addition to the Linux world. Many hard-core and experienced users never use the GUI, and there are uses for Linux for which a GUI would be out of place. This GUI-less world sports an interface that can be entered by using a tool similar to the Windows command window or DOS prompt. In this whitepaper, I will discuss how to get under the hood by using the Linux command window.

How do you capture screen shots of an operating system installation? There are a couple of ways. One is to take digital photographs of the screen. Blech.

Here's a detailed explanation of how this works.

Hypertext is the part of the Web that allows for the linking together of Web content through the use of clickable “hyperlinks.” The markup language defines the document form. Remember back in grade school getting an essay back, “marked up” with symbols stating that an item should be capitalized, or a new paragraph should begin here? Well, that is pretty much what HTML does for a Web page.

A GUI is a complex piece of software; combined with the event driven capabilities, you may run into the situation where your GUI locks up on you. Unlike Windows, the Linux GUI isn't tightly bound into the underlying OS; instead, it's a set of separate programs running on top of the OS. As a result, however, you're not forced to restart your machine due to problems with the GUI itself. This whitepaper discusses the options you've got available to you to recover a failed X Windows session.
