What is nux and what's it used for?


Nux is a OpenGL based widget toolkit and canvas used to create user interfaces, similar to GTK+. At a high level, nux is broken down into 3 libraries.

NuxCore is responsible for basic things like a type system, math functions, color definitions, etc. It basically provides all the primitive types for a widget system (color, rectangle, point). Very little logic is present here, this is a foundational library.

NuxGraphics is a thin OpenGL abstraction layer. It provides simplifications of common OpenGL patterns (pushing and popping clipping rectangles, changing render targets, state setting, etc), however it does not directly forbid users from making raw OpenGL calls themselves. NuxGraphics provides abstractions for textures and loading/unloading data.

Nux is a widget library implemented on top of NuxCore and NuxGraphics. Nux contains a duplicate for almost every major widget in the GTK stack as well as several composition widgets (color picker, graphs, 3d views)....

Surely each of you already know about how foodIt affects the potency. If you still do not know, then let me tell you about it. So, every day, each of us eats a decent amount of food rich in vitamins, fats and carbohydrates. Naturally such an abundance of food can not affect our well-being and our desires.

Its the implementation of Standard C library described in C standards plus some extra useful stuffs which are not strictly standard but used frequently.

Its main contents are :

1) C library described in ANSI,c99,c11 standards. It includes macros, symbols, function implementations etc.(printf(),malloc() etc)

2) POSIX standard library. The "userland" glue of system calls. (open(),read() etc. Actually glibc does not "implement" system calls. kernel does it. But glibc provides the user land interface to the services provided by kernel so that user application can use a system call just like a ordinary function.

3) Also some nonstandard but usefull stuffs.

"use the force, read the source "

$git clone git://sourceware.org/git/glibc.git

(I was recently pretty enlightened when i looked through malloc.c in...

Dear Ingrid
The benefits of organic food are that these foods are hopefully (we have to trust the farmers on this) grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. Thus the difference would be that these foods are less contaminated by the above mentioned chemicals. From a nutritive point of view, organic foods and standard foods have more or less the same content (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, etc). Organic food is much more expensive because the farmers do not use artificial fertilizers, but compost and manure, no herbicides so they have to remove weeds manually, and no pesticides so their crops may be much smaller due to losses caused by insects, moulds and microbes. I would say that the general population in SA is not able to afford organic food because it is more expensive and the margins are so small in view of the tiny budget of most families in rural and urban populations. Economically advantaged...

Nux vomica is a toxic herb from the Strychnine tree, which grows in Australia, Sri Lanka and the East Indies. It is sometimes known by the common names “Quaker button” and “poison nut.” Historically, nux vomica has been used to kill vermin. It was also once used internally to treat livestock and humans as a form of herbal therapy. Due to fears of poisoning and death, herbal therapy with nux vomica is no longer widely practiced.

Its reputation as a medicinal plant stems from the abundance of alkaloids in nux vomica. These nitrogen-based plant chemicals can make users more immune to illness, despite the presence of poison, according to some alternative medicine practitioners. Alkaloids in nux vomica are also credited with increasing the body’s response to stimuli by making nerve centers in the body more sensitive.

This increased sensitivity leads to increased reflexivity of certain muscles. Sometimes muscle reactions to this herb can be too strong, leading to spasms and...

Strychnos nux vomica is a plant found most often in Australia and the southern part of Asia. It is used as a homeopathic remedy, a natural substance that elevates symptoms and aids the body’s healing ability. The seeds of the Strychnos nux vomica plant are used to make the nux vomica 30C supplement, sold as pellets in health and wellness stores.

Video of the Day

Nux vomica, called “poison nut,” was originally used just in veterinary medicine. R.A. McIntosh notes the supplement's use on animals beginning in the seventeenth century in “Nux Vomica and its Uses,” an article he wrote for the “Canadian Journal of Comparative Medicine and Veterinary Science” in 1940. He traced vomica's ability to treat a wide range of symptoms was discovered in trials with humans. Eventually, it was discovered that nux vomica could aid in digestion and stimulate motor skills.

What is it?
What's this?
What's that?

Why are people so averse to providing context? English lives and breathes through context.

The proper way to approach this is to ask how the expressions are used, not to examine them as isolated phrases that can be poked at and dissected without any reference to real-life usage.


(a) Jane points at an object lying on the table. She says, "What's that?"

The word 'that' is strongly stressed. We understand that something new has come to Jane's attention. The something is that. The verb 'is' cannot take a position of stress because that is already occupied.

(b) Jane points at an object lying on the table. She says

"What is that?"

This time, the word 'is' is strongly stressed. Jane is talking about something that is already under scrutiny by those present but now she is saying, "I see it but now I want to know what it is" Clearly we can't abbreviate 'is' in this case.

What is nux vomica?

Nux vomica is commonly used as a natural remedy for many different symptoms and disorders. It comes from an evergreen tree by the same name, which is native to China, East India, Thailand, and Australia. The raw seeds are nicknamed “poison nut” because of their toxic nature. They must be treated before they are consumed to make them safe. Nux vomica that is used as a supplement can be purchased in a pill or powder form.

Nux vomica can affect the nervous system, and is most often used to treat conditions that are acute, or develop rapidly and have a short course. It is sometimes used to treat erectile dysfunction and infertility in men, though actual scientific studies have not yet proven its effectiveness.

Nux is the official student newspaper of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Started in 1934 on the Pietermaritzburg campus, it is the oldest student newspaper in South Africa. The newspaper is primarily funded by the university, and 8000 copies are distributed to students across all campuses of the University of KwaZulu-Natal free of charge. Eight issues, of 16 pages each, are distributed per year. The content is created almost entirely by students, from journalism to design. The name had its origins in the acronym Natal University Campus Chronicles, which became transformed into NUX, by homophony and rotation of the C's. The Executive body sits in Pietermaritzburg, and is editorially independent of the university and its...

nohup catches the hangup signal (see man 7 signal) while the ampersand doesn't (except the shell is confgured that way or doesn't send SIGHUP at all).

Normally, when running a command using & and exiting the shell afterwards, the shell will terminate the sub-command with the hangup signal (kill -SIGHUP ). This can be prevented using nohup, as it catches the signal and ignores it so that it never reaches the actual application.

In case you're using bash, you can use the command shopt | grep hupon to find out whether your shell sends SIGHUP to its child processes or not. If it is off, processes won't be terminated, as it seems to be the case for you. More information on how bash terminates applications can be found here.

There are cases where nohup does not work, for example when the process you start reconnects the SIGHUP signal, as it is the case...

I recently found myself in the market for a new effects processor for my guitar. I did some searching on the local for sale boards looking for something cheap. While looking at the many Boss, Digitech, Korg and other brands listed I saw a few ad’s for Nux processors. Having never heard of them I did a little research, visited their website and looked over the specs. They looked good on paper but I was still a bit apprehensive. The prices on these were lower for new units than other name brands that were 5 to 10 years old. Next I searched youtube finding a half dozen or so videos. There were a few from the company that showcased a lot of the models and features. Then there is a few videos in other languages from users. I couldn’t understand what they were saying but the unit sounded really good.

So I made my decision to take a gamble on it, and at php5200 ($130USD) it really wasn’t that big of a gamble. I have been playing guitar since the late 80’s and when I started I...
