How to do anything in Xojo

Xojo is a nice programing environment for the quick creation of interactive Windows utilities. Despite its extensive capabilities, a time always comes when you need to accomplish a relatively simple task that isn’t supported. My un-aha moment came when I wanted to fine-tune the cursor position in FP Uniscale using the arrow keys. This capability is […]

Uniscale update, continued

It’s an eventful time for Uniscale! Although thousands of people have downloaded the program over a two-year time period, yesterday I received the first useful suggestion for improving the program! A user pointed out that in the Find graph points and Drawing dimensions windows, it was often difficult to align the mouse cursor precisely and to […]

Parallel computing in GamBet

Monte Carlo calculations are by nature intensive. Accuracy is limited by statistics ? calculations often require millions of events. In response, we have included extensive support for parallel processing in the GamBet Monte Carlo code for radiation transport:

On a single machine level, the program can employ the full resources of multicore computers with almost no overhead. In […]

Uniscale update

The Field Precision Universal Scale is a high-accuracy spatial measurement system for any information that can be displayed on a computer screen: graphs in reports and publications, drawings, medical images and photographs.¬† We’ve made the program available at no charge as a service to the scientific and engineering communities. I recently had opportunity to use Uniscale […]

Defining material properties for PerMag and Magnum

PerMag and Magnum calculate magnetostatic fields in 2D and 3D geometries. An noteworthy feature of the programs is the ability to represent saturation effects in iron-like materials (i.e., non-linear solutions). To perform the calculations, the programs require data on the response of the specific materials. The two programs use different calculation methods, so they require different […]
