Here is the final project : Source code Project report Installation guide IITB Canteen Our Circuit connected to the power supply Our Circuit
Our work was over on 9th June but the professor made us stay..
So… At last I announce that OUR PROJECT IS COMPLETE!!!!!!
Here’s the screenshot :
LGPL looked like the obvious choice for PCBO when the following problem cropped up - GPL Hijacking. LGPL doesn’t spread to other parts of an application and it does allow being linked with closed-source programs. LGPL is “compatible” with GPL in the sense that you can, at your option, convert a LGPLed program to a GPL one any time you want. Such a change is irreversible. For a small project, this is a risk.
I was trying to decide which license to use for my PCBO. So I had to do a bit of research on the usable licenses. These two sites were very helpful - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_license http://www.opensource.org/licenses/ Basically GPL is like a virus. All derived and any larger work of which a GPL code is part of, must be open sourced and licensed under GPL. But this imposes a lot of restriction on libraries like glibc which are used in almost every project.
The IIT B project here at IIT B turned out to be more work than play |=( . Of course, I learnt loads of things - java tomcat server installation, java applet, java servlet, got to know about online website development, made full use of del.icio.us and a lot more… I found out IITs are not that much different from NITs.. Except the mess I dont find much difference in the work environment.
Today we combined the front end design of the oscilloscope with the plotting program. We also integrated the slider and the volt/div controls. We also took 10^6 readings of an input waveform with varying frequency and voltages. Our report is expected to be only around 12 pages, so that made our job a lot easier.
