Hmm, before I forget; I use the following command-sequence: latex blah.tex; dvips -t letter blah.dvi; ps2pdf blah.ps
Great helpful stuff>>


Dmalloc page
  Use this library to replace conventionl malloc(), free(), and so on; check for memory leaks; ...
  check the logFile for ERROR/WARNING
  A typical environmental var setting:
  setenv DMALLOC_OPTIONS log-trans,log-stats,check-fence,check-heap,check-funcs,log=logfile


Mcheck, an alternative of dmalloc
Very easy. Just one call of mtrace(), and life is good!
I've used it in voiceFrmwork, and analyzed with the cmd-line tool mtrace:
  mtrace bin/vcIIValGrp logfile


C-dissection ~~~
# Allocate memory for an array inside a function that received the array as a param?
void theFn(,.., myStructType **stP)
{
  myStructType *temp; //temp is an array of structures
  temp = (myStructType*)malloc(..);
  ...
  *stP=temp
}

Now when you want to call this fn:
  myStructType *stP; //stP is an array of structures
  theFn(...,&stP);


# Initialize random number generator:
srand(time(NULL));

CVS note
-- From Cygwin
  export CVSROOT=:ext:arashid@gibson.cs.umn.edu:/project/..../cvs-repository
  export CVS_RSH=ssh
If the files you want to install in CVS reside in `WDIR', and you want them to appear in the repository as `$CVSROOT/yoyodyne/RDIR', you can do this:
  $ cd WDIR
  $ cvs import -m "Imported sources" yoyodyne/RDIR yoyo start

- Copy the 'results.xsl' with tag 1.45 from the HEAD:
  cvs update -r 1.45 results.xsl

- Or, to copy the 'results.xsl' from the branch 'VOICE_EXPT':
  cvs update -r VOICE_EXPT results.xsl

- Using tkdiff to check difference between the local 'widgets.xsl' with that of in the HEAD that has the tag 1.10 (exclude white spaces while doing so):
  tkdiff -r 1.10 -w standard/widgets.xsl

Remote X connection with Cygwin/X
From within cygwin/X,
  DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 ssh -Y username@browning.cs.umn.edu
