The easiest way to shutdown Windows XP with a shortcut is to create a shortcut icon on the desktop (or the Start menu, or the Quick Launch menu) and assign a shortcut key combination. Useful command line commands: Shutdown : shutdown -s -t 0 Restart : shutdown -r -t 0 Log off : shutdown -l -t 0 Hibernate : rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll, SetSuspendState Hibernate Command line options for shutdown : C:\> shutdown /? Usage: shutdown [-i | -l | -s ...

Parsing XML in Java is really simple: import java.io.*; import javax.xml.parsers.Docu... The parser implementation details are hidden behind the JAXP API. In case you want to know which parser implementation is used, this is what the JavaDoc for DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance says: Use the javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory system property. Use the properties file " lib/jaxp.properties " in the JRE directory. This configuration file is in standard java.util.Properties format and contains the fully qualified name of the implementation class with the key being the system property defined above. The jaxp.properties file is read only once by the JAXP implementation and it's values are then cached for future use. If the file does not exist when the first attempt is made to read from it, no further attempts are made to...

This XML signature validator comes from the Apache XML Security project. It validates the signature according to the core validation processing rules . It does not verify that the key used to generate the signature is a trusted key. You can override the KeySelector class to make sure that the signing key is from a trusted store. import javax.xml.crypto.*; import javax.xml.cry...

Java SE 6 contains built-in utilities to generate XML signatures. This is an example that generates XML signatures using a Java keystore. It has options to generate signature for the whole document, for an element with a specific ID, or for elements matched by an XPATH expression. The XML document used to test is taken from Getting Started with XML Security : <?xml version="1.0"?> <PatientRecord> ... This is the Java code: import java.io.FileInputStream; import java.io.... However, it looks like the XPATH transform is not working. The digest generated with XPATH filter is exactly the same as that without it (i.e., the whole document)!

There is a open source project named [ini4j] for processing Windows .ini configuration files. However, I found it an overkill for my purposes. So here is my simple implementation of a .ini parser. It mimics the standard java.util.Properties class with enhancements to get and set properties by section name. There are only a few simple rules: Leading and trailing spaces are trimmed from section names, property names and property values. Section names are enclosed between [ and ] . Properties following a section header belong to that section Properties defined before the appearance of any section headers are considered global properties and should be set and get with no section names. You can use either equal sign ( = ) or colon ( : )...

Variable Meaning $_ The default or implicit variable. @_ Within a subroutine the array @_ contains the parameters passed to that subroutine. $a, $b Special package variables when using sort() $<digit> Contains the subpattern from the corresponding set of capturing parentheses from the last pattern match, not counting patterns matched in nested blocks that have been exited already. $. Current line number for the last filehandle accessed. $/ The input record separator, newline by default. $| If set to nonzero, forces a flush right away and after every write or print on the currently selected output channel. Default is 0 (regardless of whether the channel is really buffered by the system or not; $| tells you only whether you've asked Perl explicitly to flush after...

This registry key determines the number of bytes a sender may transmit without receiving an acknowledgment. If left unset, the default size is 8760 (2238 hex). For reliable networks, this size is almost always too small. I increased it to 65535 (FFFF hex) and my download speed for a big file increased from about 450Kbps to about 8Mbps!
