Use dumpbin to check if a PE file (dll/exe/…) is x64 or x86

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/04

Boy I wish I had known this long ago:

You can use DUMPBIN too. Use the /headers or /all flag and its the first file header listed.

dumpbin /headers cv210.dll

‘find’ can make life slightly easier:

dumpbin /headers cv210.dll |find "machine"
        8664 machine (x64)

Warning: mail from Zwijnenberg Logistiek BV contains link to trojan virus malware

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/04

The below email I got is a mean one, as it looks very authentic, but on close inspection:

  1. The company “Zwijnenberg Logistiek BV” does not exist
  2. When downloaded, the linked form contains a trojan virus, but when downloads it it does not contain a virus, though by now it is
  3. The address “Demkaweg 376” does not exist
  4. The fields <<Companyname Ltd>>, <<Companyaddress>>, <<CompanyZIP>>, <<Companycity>> are all correct
  5. The contact “Nadia van Sluijs” does not return Google search results

Printing from the Atom editor

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/04

Atom is a great editor, but printing from it is still lacking, even though the issue has been opened again.

There is export-html, but it only prints the current source code, not the built-in Markdown Preview or add-on reStructuredText Preview Pandoc packages “Toggle Preview” views.

By name print-atom looks promising, but contrary to the advertised “Print current atom window using print dialog”, it prints the whole Atom UI, which is of no use at all.

The little red icon isn't an adornment. Even though it doesn't look like a button: It's clickable!

The little red icon isn’t an adornment. Even though it doesn’t look like a button: It’s clickable!

Then there is broadcast which at first only worked for me in 1.6.2 but not in 1.7.2. I even removed the whole ~/.atom directory to get it working: to no avail. It finally occurred to me that in the lower right there was a tiny red icon (which was blue in 1.6.2).

Below is the process to fix broadcast, and after that you can live-view from your web browser through http://localhost:8000 either of the rendered source text in the Atom editor, or the Preview pane in the Atom editor.

Even though hardly documented, these are the broadcast settings:

Only enable

Only enable “Broadcast To Others” if you want to access port 8000 from another machine.

Getting broadcast to work again

  • wasn’t caused by changes in the theming between 1.6.2 and 1.7.2 (where lots of colours changed)
  • wasn’t just an adornment: it’s in fact clickable

As soon as you click it you see this in the right pane:
