What do you do if you want to see if you are receiving any packets on specific network port, well you could use a tool like TCPDump – or you could do something using a short python script.
I decided to put together a short python script to generate (and eventually check) a checksum for one or more files.
As I was looking through my old CP/M files earlier when I found this I couldn’t resist converting it to something a little more old fashioned.
I was looking through some of my old CP/M files (running on a virtual ALTAIR Z80 using simh) when I can across this old FORTRAN IV program.
A short post showing my preferred way of including optional debugging code in ‘C’ in a way that is compatible with ANSI ‘C’ compilers.
Just a few notes on how date and time formats can be affected by the locale setting in python.
I don’t normally bother checking my code into a version control system for a minor little project, but I still like to keep older versions of the source code around.
No particular reason but I needed something a little more complicated than the ubiquitous Hello World, so I opted for a minimal implementation of cat.
Dealing with time zones is hard, you may know what time zone you are in but what happens when you want to convert your local time to that in another timezone?
When using pygame it seems a good idea to use named colours as this makes it a little more obvious what is going on.
