Conversion to floating point values, which have no precise
representation for all numbers that have such in the decimal system.

I always heard people saying IIS ASP front end, and MS-SQL back end. ASP is for server side programming and dynamic content generation, how could it is called front end? Because I thought it is executed in the server, which is back end? I think I am confused with the term front end and back end here. Please advise. Thanks!!

Hi Folks, Ok, here's my story. I was asked to create a website for the church I attend. I am a complete newbie to creating websites. So, I did the usual -- did a bunch of googling, found that using CSS saves time in the long run, bought a couple books, googled more, read online tutorials, read many posts in this and other groups, etc.

my friends, the end()... hehehe no...nothing so dire... I'm at an impasse I think. I've created the MathematicalSet class as follows - it has 4 lists. An ObjectPool of the actual objects, a static Universe of countable pointers, a static Null set (unpopulated) and a Set of countable pointers. Each time I add an object I check the pool to see if it exists already, if not, I add it to the pool, then I push countable pointers to the...

I'm working on an application in Access 2002, and every time I'm done making changes in the VBA project, the database is noticeably larger after compacting, even when code changes are small or even if they involve removing more code than I add. In the past, I've usually been able to recover space in these situations by decompiling the front-end, but in this case, after I decompile, compact, recompile, and compact again, the database has...

Anyone have any ideas on how to determine when the back-end file (containing only tables) has been updated with new data. The date/time of the file won't work because it gets updated to the current date/time when the back-end file is compacted. I'm just looking for an easy way to determine when there has been a change to data in any table in the back-end file. Maybe something is updated in one of the system tables??

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
