    Preferred Paper for Printing with a Canon i860 

    After experimenting with various types of paper for photo printing, we’ve found that the Epson photo paper produces the best results on our Canon Printer:

    Turn pseudo-enums expressed as #defines into strings. 

    I have an include file that has 50+ #defines with constants (0,1,2,3,…,etc). I have a dump program to dump the data structure that these #defines are used in into a .csv file. I used this little script to dump case statements out for the #defines, with readable strings instead of arbitrary constant values.


    cat $1 | awk '/#define/{
    print "ttcase " $2 ":";
    print "tttfprintf(out_csv_fp,"," $2 "");";
    print "tttbreak;";
    }' > out.txt

    Awk script to quote all parameters for a given function name. 

    I was trying to maintain a program that wrote 200+ lines to a single file, using a single repeated function call–many of which had all NULL parameters. There were also occasional loops involved. The data was position based, so NULL writes counted.

    I was just trying to figure out:

    1. How many times a given function was called.
    2. At what position actual data occurred.

    I created a stub function of the original offending function that logged to a file what # call this was and the data passed. Then I copied the offending functions’ caller and substituted offending function calls using this script, which quotes all passed parameters (note: already quoted parameters would need a little more work):


    BEGIN {
    OFS=","
    }
    /repeated_function_name/{

    for(i=1; i<=NF; i++)
    {
    if(i==1)
    {
    sub("[(]", "("", $i);
    }
    else
    {
    sub("^[ ]*",""", $i);
    }
    if(i==NF)
    {
    sub("[)]", "")", $i);
    }
    else
    {
    sub("[ ]*$", """, $i);
    }
    }

    print $0
    next;
    }
    { print $0; }
