1.Does any one know anout these exceptions? what is the cause?
a. "XLRDError: Can't find workbook in OLE2 compound document" -- would
indicate that the OLE internal directory is broken. Can't find an entry
named Workbook or Book.

b. "CompDocErr or: Not a whole number of sectors" -- would indicate that
the file is truncated or otherwise malformed.

Send an e-mail message to the package author, providing in each case
(1) the versions of Python and xlrd that you are using, on what
platform
(2) a full copy/paste of the error message *AND* the traceback
(3) a copy of the file
(4) what software (with version info, if possible) was used to create
the file
(5) what results you get when you try to open it with OpenOffice.org' s
calc, Gnumeric, Excel, Excel Viewer, ...

Cheers

I have just recompiled, upgraded to PHP 4.3.4. As an exercise (and curiosity) I've decided to test out PDF functions and got the test in the PHP online manual working. I had one problem whereby the example refered to Times New Roman - I didn't have this, but I did have Times-Roman which worked. My question - How do I know what fonts I *do* have available? I've run phpinfo() and gd_info() which I hope is enough to tell some wise person...

Several months ago I started a thread with the title "What is/is not considered to be good OO programming" which started a long and interesting discussion.

What I want is to have a link to a file (it could be a .zip, .exe, .jpg, ..txt or even .html) and when the user clicks on it they are prompted with the Save As box, as opposed to it opening in the browser. I think I need to do something like: $fp = fopen($filetooutput, "rb"); $thefile = fread($fp, filesize($thefiletooutput)); header("Content-type: ???/???"); not sure what to put instead of the ??? echo $thefile;

I posted before, but have now narrowed my problem down to this method. At the start of the method, I test to make sure that I have a resource, a pointer to data returned from a database. This test is coming back true, so the next line runs, which attempts to get the next row from the dataset. This brings back nothing. On the queries I'm running right now, the first row will be fetched, but then no further rows. If I expect 20 rows back, I...

Note: I tried cross-posting this message to several newsgoups, including comp.lang.perl.misc, c.l.p.moderated, comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi, comp.lang.javascript and comp.lang.php. Nothing appeared on my news server, so I'm trying again - this time posting a separate copy of the message to each group. I'm thinking this should be fairly easy to accomplish - a quick and dirty ... what? ... script? program?

I want to give users the power to edit files from an easy interface, so I create a form and a PHP script called "fileUpdate". It does a reasonable about of error checking and prints out some errors. It uses fileperms() to get the permissions of the file, and it includes that info in any error message. Today I'm getting the following error message. I've used SmartFtp to go in and set the test file's permissions to 777, but in this error...

First of all, I'm an Asian and I need to input Japanese, Korean and so on. I've tried many PHP IDEs today, but almost non of them supported Unicode (UTF-8) file.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
