Plan 9 and Google's Summer of Code

Folks:
	The window for mentor organizations to apply for Google's
Summer of Code 2016 opens on Monday, February 8th, and we'll
be applying again. As in the past several years, I'll be submitting an
application for us to participate as an "umbrella organization", and
we'll happily accept applications for projects relating to Plan 9,
Inferno, Plan 9 from User Space, or any of the related technolgoies.
Erik has volunteered to again serve as our backup org admin.

	There have been some changes to the program this year, but
for the most part it's as you remember: college & university students
18 and over are invited to apply to a list of mentoring organizations
and, if selected, paired with a mentor to work on a specific project.
The most significant change from previous years is probably that
students may only participate a maximum of 3 times (as students;
you're welcome to talk to us about being a mentor!). For a full
rundown on the program, check out Google's Summer of Code site[1].

	I've started the process of updating the wiki information, but
it's not all there yet; feel free to help out. In particular, as always,
we need to make sure our Ideas page is in good shape by the
time the application period ends — this is usually the main factor
determining which orgs get selected; please take a look[2].

	If you'd be interested in being a mentor, co-mentor, or
backup mentor, please either speak up here or drop me a line. If you
have specific ideas you'd like to work on, please add them to the
Ideas page on the wiki, or pass them along and I'll fill them in. If you
would like to mentor but don't have a specific project idea, that's
cool to; just let me know. If you're in contact with students, please

Its time to buy a desktop tower and install INFERNO as the only Operating System on it. Yeah

Hello to Inferno friends ,

i have a screen here together with keyboard and mouse.

Seems that it is time here to buy a dektop tower for that stuff.

Want to start my Computer , and the only OS which is starting on that tower , should be Inferno OS.

Before i do that my question to interested programmers is :

"Where can i find detailed informations , step by step , to install inferno"
Absolutely shure that they are functioning.

Best way someone who has done the same in the past successful.

Hans


PS. I think this discussion is interesting for everyone.

Deployment of programmed Limbo Software Tool


Good morning everybody ,

a simple question.

If a software tool in Limbo is already programmed ,

the program consists of a .DIS File.

In the case of the distribution of the tool , how can the programmer

hide his source code of that tool ?

The .DIS file is ready to load in the Inferno IDE everytime and then the
user can see the source code and do everything he want with it.


You understand.


By example in another language you have compiled a stand alone . exe
Maybe only for Windows OS. No matter.

The code is hide in the .exe.    (first level security)

The user is not able to load the .exe direct in an IDE.  Only cracking is possible.


This .exe can then be secured further by another deployment encrypter that
creates a starting file ,
which is LINKED to the original .exe which is encrypted in an "shadow container".

No crackers allowed. We should stay outside.


However , if a programmer has a lot of work for his tool , he also wants to hide his code.

Reasonable for everyone.

Inferno OS Learning

Hello Programmers ,

i want to mention that for learning the Inferno OS programming it is essential to have good unix os knowledge.
Because i came from windows os i have no experience in Unix system.

At all i have never programmed since 1 Year ago.

For this mission i have prepared some tools like Cygwin , a smaller cygwin like tool , and another unix CMD.
Besides some PDF tutorials.

First to learn the CMD basics.   (most important)

To understand the "frame" of the Inferno System and its rules.

This can take a while.

In the past a have reached every aim from the  point on ,  of understanding its structure.


Joke : "What would you answer if someone asks you"  :   "Do you hsdjtejfldlsm ?"

          "What ? "

           "Do you hsdjtejfldlsm ?"

          "I cant understand ?

           "HSDJTEJFLDLSM ?"   

            "no no , we dont do such thing"           



I stay tuned and be motivated to learn.


Regards

Hans



PS. Its easy to only move a mouse or press a button to operate a system.
      Fact is that systems like windows are programmed in the C language itself.
      The C language like everybody know , was for the unix system.
      And who created it.
      The Master : Dennis Ritchi


      Today are two kinds of individuals :

      The first do everytime the easy way and their brain is off. (perfect for mainstream)

      The second start to think....everytime for their actions and their brain in on.


      The first ones are 90% of all.
      They are operating their portable tablet outdoors and are running in front of a steetlight.
      (I don't mean blond haired teens only)

Administrators and moderators of inferno-os Google Groups, please erase all the messages that I not should have posted here in inferno-os Google Group


Administrators and moderators of inferno-os Google Groups, please erase all the messages that I not should have posted here in inferno-os Google Groups.

I ask this because I probably be in future a good programmer famous and I do not want to talk about the topics that I should not have posted here in  inferno-os Google Groups.

I decided prevent substantial harm to important relationships that probably I will have in future with other developers.

Re: Immediate segfault on ARM target... would like debugging tips...

(warning... I pasted this verbatim to the bitbucket area as an issue) As the title states, I've cross-compiled the latest Inferno source to produce an "emu-g" and tried running it on an ARM9 processor w/o FPU where it immediately segfaults.

Hi.  I have this problem under ChromeOS if I run any JIT'ed code (e.g. emu -c1).

The problem in my case is that ChromeOS (a restricted Linux) is being very careful with respect to security.  Many newer Linux releases use seccomp, PaX, and other technologies which harden the system to web/inet hacking.

Writing arbitrary code into memory and executing it _is_ a security hole, right?

The result is that I am running all Inferno programs interpreted (Dis bytecode compiled) but without JIT.

ARM has a XN (eXecute Never/DEP) memory protection bit for this.

Sorry, I am an Inferno newbie with no access to ARM9, so I probably can't help further.

Ropes (functional strings) in Limbo

Greetings,

I did an implementation of Ropes (immutable strings) to learn a bit of Limbo.  The implementation includes a doubly ended queue.  Code lives on GITHub:

Enjoy!

Casting Oddity

Greetings,

My real question is where a char2string function lives.

I did a quick hack for debugging (broken code, but allowed me to test; attached).

However, I got an unexpected result when I print out the resultant string and its length:

 String "c" has len 4 

I understand the problem, but perhaps the compiler or runtime needs to be taught about this.

Cheers,
-KenD
