i have a isuue

on 2017-12-12 01:55

hi everyone
The difference is in which math library they call.

Java, Google, and C# are using the MicroSoft C# floating point math library.

Tcl and Perl are using a C floating point math library.

Both libraries follow their respective standards, so both are correct. You may disagree with the way the standards have been defined, but that is one of the differences of C vs C#.

Wide character error

on 2017-12-01 10:19

I'm having a problem with a script called Pod_feeder. This script posts news feeds to the social media site diaspora. I'm NOT a coder so thats why I need help now....
The script works sometimes and sometimes I get an error wide character xml::simple at line 470. I've been trying to find a solution for this and the only thing I've been able to come up with is that the script needs to be changed so that line 470 posts the news story with utf8 instead of unicode. any help would be greatly appreciated!!! These are the lines causing the error.

ActivePython in ALM VAPI-XP Script

on 2017-11-22 06:20

Je souhaite exécuter du un script Python depuis HP ALM, de la même manière que je peux exécuter du code VBS. J'ai installé ActivePython sur mon poste local, et pourtant mon script ne s'exécute pas. Le code du script se résume à un 'print("test")'. Comment faire pour exécuter le script python depuis ALM?
Merci =)

I would like to run Python in ALM. I installed ActivePython on my local computer but the script does'nt run. The script is 'print("test")'. How can I run the python script from ALM???
Thank you =)
