64 Bit Jungle Forums now open!

Posted by in Linux, Programming, Web Development 28 comments

I’ve decided to create a forum community for 64 Bit Jungle users, and anyone else who would like to join. I guess the forums are an extension to post comments, allow discussion of topics not (yet) covered in any articles or posts on the site, and will hopefully encourage discussion and debate within the community!

Webgrind: Cross-platform Xdebug Profiling Web Frontend

Webgrind: Cross-platform Xdebug Profiling Web Frontend Posted by in Programming, Web Development 7 comments

I’m using Xdebug as my primary PHP debugger. I have it integrated into my Eclipse PDT IDE, and have also been using its profiling capabilities. Until recently, I’ve been using KCachegrind – which has a wonderfully diverse feature set – as my primary profile data visualisation tool. However, as a Gnome user, KCachegrind requires a […]

Merge two images with PHP and GD

Merge two images with PHP and GD Posted by in Programming, Web Development 31 comments

One of the things I really wanted to incorporate into the new site design template, was a nice big, I-really-want-people-to-click-on-this-and-Subscribe-to-my-RSS-Feed image/link/button (big [what the hell is] “Web 2.0” buttons seem to be the in thing at the moment – I didn’t want to feel left out…), which is located at the top right of the […]

Anyway, following my post on MySQL Workbench 5.1.3 Alpha, here’s an update on installing the latest version – 5.1.4 Alpha. 32 Bit users can install from the repositories, by first […]

Ubuntu Bundle and Widget Debugging on YouBundle

Posted by in Programming, Ubuntu, Web Development 1 comment

YouBundle is finally live! I’m currently trying to do 6 dozen different things, including debugging a really annoying “feature” in the Bundle Widget… For some reason, it only occurs on WordPress blogs, and basically, the page’s style sheet/CSS seems to be overriding the Widget CSS, and adding bullet styles to list items, where I really […]

Debugging PHP Applications with Xdebug and Eclipse PDT

Debugging PHP Applications with Xdebug and Eclipse PDT Posted by in Eclipse, Programming, Technology, Web Development 66 comments

OK, so I have x64 Eclipse successfully installed and running with all the plugins I use for Web Application Development. But what about debugging? Sure, var_dump(), echo, print and so on are all valuable to me when debugging a script, but it’s always good to have more information. Xdebug is a fantastic PHP extension, which […]

Conky: Dual Core Processors in .conkyrc

Conky: Dual Core Processors in .conkyrc Posted by in Conky, Programming, Technology, Ubuntu 11 comments

OK, this is a bit of a cheeky post, since I’m merely extending a previous post “Conky on Ubuntu 64 Bit – .conkyrc” – or elaborating on it – to clarify setting up .conkyrc for Dual Core Processors – specifically for my AMD Turion 64 X2. I’ve had a few requests specifically about this, so […]

Eclipse PDT and MySQL – SQL Explorer Plugin

Posted by in Eclipse, Programming, Technology, Web Development 33 comments

I’ve been using Eclipse PDT for some time now, and since PHP programming invariably involves connecting to a database at some point or another, I wanted to be able to access my MySQL databases from within the Eclipse IDE – even if only to quickly debug SQL statements. I generally use a combination of a […]
