Writing mathematical expression in a file

I am trying to write a mathematical expression as variable = expression in the output file.

The current method that I am doing is through WriteString as

expr = -((a*b*y^2*(-1 + z)*z*(1 + a*b + z))/(1 + a*b)^2) +         (z*(1 + a*b - a*b*z + (z + a*b*z)^2))/(1 + a*b)^2 -         (y*z*((-1 + z)^2 + a*b*(2 - 3*z + z^2) + a^2*b^2*(1 - z + z^2)))/(1 + a*b)^2 expression = CForm[expr] /. {Power->pow}; (*expression = CForm[HornerForm[expr]] /. {Power->pow};*) str=OpenWrite["output.hh"]; WriteString[str," double variable = ", expression,";"]; (*WriteString[str," double variable = ", ExportString[expression,"Text"]];*) Close[str]; 

The output is

 cat output.hh  double variable = -(a*b*(-1 + z)*z*(1 + a*b + z)*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*pow(y,2)) - y*z*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*(pow(-1 + z,2) + a*b*(2 - 3*z + pow(z,2)) + pow(a,2)*pow(b,2)*(1 - z + pow(z,2))) + z*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*(1 + a*b - a*b*z + pow(z + a*b*z,2)); 

I want to break the line as the original expr (or after some user-specified column say 80) i.e.

 double variable = -(a*b*(-1 + z)*z*(1 + a*b + z)*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*pow(y,2)) -                    y*z*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*(pow(-1 + z,2) + a*b*(2 - 3*z + pow(z,2)) + pow(a,2)*pow(b,2)*(1 - z + pow(z,2))) +                     z*pow(1 + a*b,-2)*(1 + a*b - a*b*z + pow(z + a*b*z,2)); 

Although this might not lead to optimized expression for numerical evaluation, however it is wanted as beautification. Also how should one optimize expression for further processing to other languages. Any suggestion? Experimental`OptimizeExpression and HornerForm are some options. Any other recommendation? MathCode is much costly 😀

How do I edot this texconv “IMGtoBC3.bat” file so it “READS FROM & PRESERVES the directory structure when writing the “resulting” dds files


Like the title says:

How do I edot this texconv "IMGtoBC3.bat" file so it "READS FROM & PRESERVES the directory structure when writing the "resulting" dds files?

I have a large folder/sub-folders with many tiff’s that "have the same file name" divided up into "sets".

These dds files are for custom textures in a unity game, file naming is a forced event, but "sorted/selected" by folder.

I have about 3000 file sets ready to convert and I’m not doing them 1 by 1 in Nvidia tool (I hope) and AMD tool and the game have a MAJOR conflict (its as a no go)

BONUS points to anyone that could show me this "bat" file using unity’s new tree of "CRUNCH" cmd line dds compressor/encoder. Suggestions of other tools: I have tested over 50 apps, for my needs its: Nvidia, texconv and then crunch in level of quality/support

HERE IS THE CODE:

Writing a plugin to track user purchase and post back that using API? [closed]

I am writing a plugin to track user purchase and post back that using API.

First the user visit a third party listing site and logs in. Then he clicks the listing and visits a wordpress store with this plugin.
I need to store that user info for 30 days. In that window period if he makes purchase i will pay commission to the third party listing site.

Can you suggest any code examples or free and paid plugins to look at.

I’m writing in an NPC that will become a wizard – how long will it take them to level up? [closed]

There’s an option in my campaign that the characters can save a man cursed to be a stag, and if they can reverse the curse he will be really grateful, but doesn’t have anything to repay them with. I want to turn him into a wizard (lvl 5+ preferably) and then have him come back into contact and give them some magical calling item so he can come and fight alongside them once to help them out and settle his debt. How long does it make sense to wait (in game time) before the NPC could be Lvl 5+? I want to keep it realistic but I also don’t want to sit on it so long they forget who he is.

Writing a list of names, with a limited amount of “active” letters at a time. Algorithm to sort the names to reduce the amount of swapping letters?

While making name-tags for a dinner seating, I stumbled upon a problem which I can’t find any algorithm to solve, and I’m not sure where to begin.

The goal is to write the name of each dinner guest on a card, completing one name at a time. The names are written with old-fashioned rubber stamps, so only 6 letters can be "active" at any given time. When a new letter is required, one of the active letters has to be swapped out for the new letter.

The problem is to sort the names in such an order, that I need to do the least amount of letter-swapping.

Example
I want to write the names:

  • Jack
  • Julie
  • Chuck

I can do this with 3 letter-swaps
Initial letters: J A C K H U
Write: Jack, Chuck

{swap A, C, K with L, I, E}

New active letters: J L I E H U
Write: Julie

Now I want to find an algorithm that, given a list of names and a limit of active characters, provide the order of names and which letters to swap at each name, to reduce the total amount of letter-swaps.

Any ideas or pointers are welcome.

how to get rid of curly brackets writing minimization output to file

I have the following code

SetDirectory["C:\test"]; fname = FileNameJoin[{%, "results.dat"}]; str = OpenWrite[fname, FormatType -> StandardForm]  D1 = 0.4; D2start = 0.26; D2fin = 0.5; Ntot = 12; D2step = (D2fin - D2start)/Ntot;  For[i = 0, i <= Ntot, i++,   D2 = D2start + i*D2step ;   With[{minsol = NMinimize[fnew[D1, D2, x], x]},   fmin = First@minsol;   xn = Values@ Last@ minsol;];   Write[str, D2, " ", xn]; ]   Close[str]; 

i.e I minimize the function fnew wrt x and write the value of x in the file results.dat. The problem is that the output is

0.26 {0.711259} 0.28 {0.744881} 0.3 {0.776204} 0.32 {0.805418} etc. 

How do I get rid of these annoying curly brackets?

Writing generalized hypergeometric function ${_nF}_{n-1}(\cdot)$ as a function of $n$

How can we code the hypergeometric function $ $ f(n,k,z)={_nF}_{n-1}{\huge(}{1-k,\overbrace{2,\dots,2}^{n-1\ \text{times}} \atop \underbrace{1,\dots,1}_{n-1\ \text{times}}};z{\huge)} $ $ as a function that accepts any $ n=1,2,3,\dots$ ? This function reduces to a rational function in $ z$ but that is not what I’m after. I apologize for lack of an attempt here…did not have any idea where to start.
