bchunk v1.2.1 - BinChunker for Windows

BinChunker is an application that converts .bin "Disc Image" files to .iso with the help of a .cue file.

The application is unfortunately Unix-only (which includes Mac OS X and Linux) due to the use of a number of non-standard C headers - in fact, the code will fail to compile on a Windows "cross-native" Linux layer like MingW64

$ gcc bchunk.c -o bchunk
bchunk.c:61:24: fatal error: netinet/in.h: No such file or directory
 #include <netinet/in.h>
                        ^
compilation terminated.

Fortunately, a fix has been published by mzex for use of BinChunker on Windows, however it does not come with the source code (only a binary encoded in base64 format).

In the spirit of the GPL, here's a copy of the source code on Github: https://github.com/extramaster/bchunk. Feel free to Fork (or even spin off as a separate repo).
And here's the Windows Binary Download of BinChunker, the GitHub releases system is used: https://github.com/extramaster/bchunk/releases.



Oh, and one more thing, the changes made do not break Linux/Unix builds. So you can compile this version with Linux as usual.





Better Python Standard Library Autocompletion for Notepad++

Posted: Thursday, 7 July 2016

Download: http://static.extramaster.net/python.xml.zip (476kb download - 3,367kb extracted)
Note that there's 13,563 definitions included, so any application that attempts to parse XML structure will have a bad time.

Before:


After:




Using the Notepad++ "python.xml" generator at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-python/, in conjunction with a script that imports all Python modules: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1206832/importing-the-entire-python-standard-library, on a computer with a fresh Python install, nabs a "python.xml" file with definitions and autocomplete entries for all Python Standard Library modules.


Download: http://static.extramaster.net/python.xml.zip
Or if github gists are your thing: https://gist.github.com/extramaster/9d0b7eba99a9708eb3f71ae95bcd42b5

The "python.xml" file should be placed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\APIs" or "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\APIs", overwriting the pre-installed copy.

In case you want to revert back to the pre-installed "python.xml" file, here's a copy: http://static.extramaster.net/python_original.xml.zip

Here's a list of all of the Python Standard Libraries used in the creation of the autocomplete file:

TwoKinds Upscaled 4x with Waifu2x

Posted: Monday, 29 February 2016

Twokinds is an english webcomic that chronicles the tales of a once-corrupt-Grand-Templar and a Fiesty Tiger.
The story is set in an immense, yet fictional world - a world that reflects (in an exaggerated manner) issues that plague modern society.
Themes of corruption, conflict and subtle racial-warring play an integral role into the plot of Twokinds, which allows the comic to maintain a tension of interest.

Raspberry Pi - Raspbian Apt Mirrors

Raspberry Pi's entire website down?






Can't access the Raspberry Pi mirror redirector?


Well, here's a bunch of sources that you can add to /etc/apt/sources.list to get yourself back on your feet - in case of another shutdown of the Raspberry Pi foundation's websites.

Last updated: November 2015. List based on a cache of: http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianRepository

It is recommended that you only choose the mirrors that are hosted in the country/region closest to you.

Also, have a copy of the mirror list, but instead of it being the latest debian release, point it to an older version.
i.e.
Have both "deb http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/raspbian/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free rpi"
and "deb http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/raspbian/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free rpi"
in the same file.

Don't forget to "apt-get update" after you have modified "/etc/apt/sources.list"!


Caps/Scroll/Num Lock Toggler for Windows

If you have a keyboard that does not have built-in Scroll Lock/Num Lock capabilities (such as the Microsoft Wireless Arc Keyboard - pictured below),

Then here’s a program that will toggle Scroll Lock/Caps Lock and Num Lock via software.

Playing MIDI tracks from an Arduino

Posted: Thursday, 29 October 2015

Link: https://www.extramaster.net/tools/midiToArduino/

Table of Contents (TOC)


^ TOC

So, you just learnt how to control a buzzer using an Arduino, but you want more then just simple beeps and hums - you want to assert your dominance over the sound-waves to show-off how well you can control the buzzer.

Cynical? Well there's no denying that it's a sentiment that we all share once we learn something new, but hey, if you've managed to acquire and get an Arduino working, then that's quite far an accomplishment.

A quick search of "music buzzer arduino" should point you to the right direction, but no-one has the time to individually hand-code and map the midi-tones to the frequency values that the Arduino's Tone function requires, especially if you're working with a long MIDI track.

The solution?

https://www.extramaster.net/tools/midiToArduino/

Circuitry

^ TOC

Wiring the Buzzer is trivial, just place the buzzer on two strips (on a breadboard), connect one strip to Pin 11 on your Arduino, and the other strip to the Ground.

Demo

Note that this also works with Raspberry Pis.

Steps/Instructions

^ TOC
  1. Visit: https://www.extramaster.net/tools/midiToArduino/
  2. Upload a midi file
  3. Choose the track that you want to export
  4. Copy the resulting code to a new Arduino sketch

Sample Exported Arduino Code

Didn't get the midi file to work with the web app? No worries, here are some sample code generated by the web-app

Final Notes

^ TOC Oh, and by the way, it appears that you can leave the Piezo buzzer running on loop for an extensive amount of time (24 hours+), so if you want to play a midi indefinitely, you can use an Arduino to do so.

Unfortunately, you can only have one tone running at a time, so if your midi track has multiple keys being played simultaneously, expect some wacky results. (here - try this: http://www.forelise.com/midi - "Track 2: Acoustic Grand Piano - Piano - Fr Elise")
If you attempt some protothreads hack, then expect only one Piezo buzzer to work (at a time). But if you're game, and want to give using protothreads a try:
