The Principles of Batch Process Program Development

The echo is statement is something that is used unconditionally in almost every language and cognate of computer programming. It has been used for millions of purposes over the last 60 years and will likely continue into the future as the universal display command. When a statement is “echoed”, it is displayed publicly. This can be used to create user-interfaces, display vital messages, write new files, amend existing files or anything that you can think of that involves conveying a message to a user. So let’s go over some of the most basic functions of an ECHO statement for the Windows command-line terminal.

Displaying a message publicly. ECHO statements are mainly used to display messages or gather information from users. This is a process that is known in the computing world as interfacing. An interface is the communication between any two agents (in this case you and the computer program) in a computing environment (the computer). When interfacing, an ECHO statement is used to keep an exchange between a human and a machine minimally communicative, meaning; as simple for the human as possible. This greatly reduces the amount of coding that a human sees which will add security and functionality to any script.

To utilize a simple display message in the Windows command-line terminal, simply type the ECHO command, followed by the message that you would like displayed. For example:

ECHO Hello, World!

This command line would display the message ‘Hello, World!’ to a user. It is not necessary to put quotes or parenthesizes around the message like most other programming languages require, because the Windows command-line utility reads the command first (other programs will read the message first).

Preempting certain specific characters. It is also important to note that, though the Windows command-line terminal is able to ECHO every character on a keyboard, that preempting specifically unusual characters or characters that are used to represent other purposes is occasionally required. To preempt these characters, simply place a carrot in front of them like this: All the principles of the wavemaker for the development can be checked at There should be use of simple terms and language to guiding the person regarding the development of the enterprise. 

ECHO This is an unusual character ^/

In this case, the “/” was the unusual character, and for the terminal to display it correctly, we needed to put the “^” in front of it. When the terminal does interpret a character in such a way, it will notify you, the programmer, that either ‘That character was unexpected at this time’ or ‘ The syntax of this command is incorrect’. This means that the terminal has identified an initial command function, and has ceased all other operations, meaning simply, the “/” commanded the terminal to end the operation and search for another command. In the above example, a user would have seen the following message:

ECHO This is an unusual character /

The “^” symbol, in this case, would not effect the outcome of the displayed message, but rather enable the terminal to display the “/” without issue.

The ECHO command is likely something (depending upon your purposes, of course) that you will use a great deal. It is highly versatile and extremely easy to implement making it ideal for new and advanced programmers alike. We will go on to discuss several advanced implementations of this command, including user-interfaces and exporting command-lines out to files using ECHO cognates in the future. For now though, keep experimenting with basic ECHO implementations and practicing all else! Have fun, and happy programming!

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to continue on to learn more about command-line and batch process programming by referring to The Principles of Batch Process Program Development series!

Ranking The Friday The 13th Horror Movies From Top To Bottom

WIth the release of the new Friday the 13th remake at the theaters, I thought it might be fun to look back at the previous series. The series has stinkers and also wonderful parts throughout, and I have ranked them in the order that I enjoyed them. Each ranking includes a basic synopsis, and why they were good or bad. No real spoilers here, just basic ideas. How would you rank these Friday the 13th Classics?

1 – Friday the 13th, Part 2

Now this is the pinnacle of Friday the 13th scares. Old enough to have that grainy feel that makes many horror movies of that day creepy, the movie is the first that actually has Jason as the killer. It is also easily the scariest part of all the Friday the 13th movies. The story is good, the acting is good, and the terror is off the charts. In particular, the last forty five minutes of this movie will scare you to no end. There are so many scares in this movie that it would be a crime to tell you how it ends. If you have not seen this movie, rent it tonight. You will be glad you did.

2 – Friday the 13th, Part VII – The New Blood

Friday the 13th – The New Blood is actually one of the funnest thrill rides in the series. Why? Well, for one we finally get an undeterred view of Jason without the hockey mask. Now that is ugly in a whole new way. Two, Jason gets a run for his money by a young girl with kinetik powers. This leads into some very cool chase scenes and the young girl actually manages to hold her own for a portion of the movie against the indestructible Jason Voorhees. Remarkably, Jason does not lose face (no pun intended) in the match up as the girl is shown to have supernatural powers. The movie is fast paced, and has all the things you want in a Friday the 13th movie.

3 – Friday the 13th, Part VI – Jason Lives

Easily the most sylistic movie in the Friday the 13th series, Jason Lives is a quick paced horror flick that will keep you guessing and jumping from start to finish. The movie uses the camera in innovative ways for the first time in the series, and the movie has a very slick feel to it. The pacing is quick, and certain images will stick with you forever once you have seen them. Jason standing atop a crashed motor home breathing heavily and ready to rock and roll stands out to many. The movie centers around a character, Tommy, from an earlier installment and his obsession with killing Jason for good. Top notch entry into the series.

4 – Friday the 13th

This was the movie that started it all, and for the most part it is a pretty good horror movie. Even though the acting is horrible in parts, and the storyline seems to drag sometimes, the movie is largely considered to be one of the horror flicks that started the eighties horror craze. The movie is wildly popular, and for good reason. Not only does it introduce the wildly famous Jason Voorhees, but it does so without him even being the killer! The movie is must see watching for any Friday the 13th fan, and it sets the table for the horror to come.

5 – Friday the 13th, Part 3

This is one of the most entertaining installments in the whole series if for no other reason than the humor. The movie is actually funny in parts and their is just enough spook and gore to keep it true to the horror genre. Jason hacks and sacks the counselors in a number of creative ways and even does it in 3-D. Though the movie is fun to watch, it is still just above average overall. If you take out the hokey 3-D graphics, it surely would have ranked higher. Part 3 is famous primarily because it is where Jason dons the hockey mask for the first time.

6 – Jason X (New Line Platinum Series)

This particular installment of the Friday the 13th series is oddly fun and different in that Jason gets an upgrade straight out of science fiction. The movie centers around Jason being cryogenically frozen and is found and thawed in the year 2455. Aboard a spaceship with all types of characters including a tough as nails female android, Jason hacks his way into the future. While the premise is rather silly, that has never been a problem with Friday the 13th fans. This movie does not disappoint for those that love the series.

7 – Friday the 13th – The Final Chapter

Many lament this particular entry as one of the worst in the series, but I found it to be very fun and enjoyable. It centers around a particular family including a very smart Corey Feldman. (A bit of humor by the producers, there?) The movie does a wonderful job of pulling in all the classic scary moments in the series such as setting, tone, and music. Though it has some very average acting, the movie still does a good job of making the series jump above average. Not every Friday the 13th keeps the tone like this one.

8 – Friday the 13th, Part V – A New Beginning

While this is certainly not the worst of the series, it is also not really one of the best. The movie centers around a group of mentally challenged youngsters and the people that take care of them. Why Jason suddenly decided to attack this group is kind of lost on me, and the movie is not as fast paced as some of the better options. The movie does have some ups however, including a great chase scene that will keep you jumping at the end. The movie is middle of the pack overall when compared to the rest of the series.

9 – Friday the 13th, Part VIII – Jason Takes Manhattan

Not far behind Jason goes to Hell as far as stupidity, this one should never have been made. The difference here is that they do a decent job of keeping the tension level high and spooky. Unfortunately, the movie is based largely on a cruise ship, and then on to New York City. Yes, New York City. That said, Crystal Lake was the missing portion of the movie during the bulk of it. Something about Jason in New York is simply funny, not scary. A very mediocre sample of Friday the 13th lore.

10 – Jason Goes to Hell

Without a doubt, this is the worst Friday the 13th of them all. In this particular installment, Jason is relegated to being only in spirit. That is, he takes over a series of host bodies to do his bidding. That said, the lack of Jason presence in the movie utterly kills any chance that the movie would do well. The idea of Jason is only scary if it is the hockey masked, hulking, never say die Jason. Not some stranger who is possessed by Jason. Definately a stinker.

Do you want to play these movies via a reliable and effective media player? Well, you can use kodi downloads for firestick.

String Trimmers- Handling Weeds to Perfection

There is an important section that defines the aspect of cleanliness but very few people seem to follow it with sincerity as most of them are lazy by nature and want things done the easy way.

Given the current corona virus outbreak, people all over the world are now confined to their homes and can’t do much except wait for it to get over in order to get back to their jobs.

As such, this is a good opportunity to keep your garden tidy so that it is nice to look at and will also be a good exercise to practice during the lockdown period as it will keep your limbs active.

Whipper Snipper

The gardens and lawns are the first place to begin the cleaning process and the best tool that comes in handy is the string trimmer, which is used to cut off the overgrown grass so that it looks a bit better and happening.

This process is similar to a haircut where you just need to get rid of the overgrown hair to look more handsome. String trimmers are of different models which are utilized by farmers and homeowners to the hilt.

These trimmers are quite similar to lawn mowers and provide much better output than their more erstwhile counterparts due to their versatility like for example they can easily cut through weeds and rough grass with such subtlety that is virtually impossible for a lawn mower.

For this reason, they are also called whipper snippers, alongwith many different monikers like weed whip, line trimmers, brush cutters and so many others that one might right an entire book on it.

Cultural Impact

String Trimmers are more updated versions of lawn mowers whose origin dates way back to the 1970s when they were invented by George Ballas, who got the idea of making this machine by observing the wipers of different vehicles and he chose to turn his dream into a reality at a car wash station.

He observed the wipers cleaning the windows carefully and it flashed through his mind that here is an excellent process which will make gardening much easier by reducing the burden and work level of farmers and gardeners.

He then went back home and started working on his idea and within a few days, he made a makeshift trimmer by taking a fishing rod from which he cut the line with a pair of scissors and started attaching the pieces to a rusted tin can and fixed it with a lawn edger from his garage.

It was Ballas who first coined it as the ‘weed eater’ due to its fast pace and started enjoying gardening and lawn mowing immensely than he ever did as he was thrilled by this new invention of his.

Soon, the word spread far and wide and string trimmers became the talk of the town as everybody started utilizing it in their lawns and found that they were able to finish their jobs quicker than usual.

It had such a strong cultural impact that trimmers continue to be used to this day with different versions of updated models that have versatile features like gas trimmers, battery operated trimmers and electric trimmers that could easily be confused for mowers.

Proper Maintenance

It can be seen how significant the string trimmers are in your lives and therefore it is your duty to take good care of it so that they lost for atleast a few years so you need to consider some important points.

Whether it is gas or battery trimmers, all require proper maintenance so that they function flawlessly without any technical glitches so make sure that you have the best strings for weed eaters.

Maintaining can be done through the following:

  • Before you start the machine, let it warm up for nearly half an hour so that the temperature is normal and for gas trimmers, clean up the carburetor
  • Due to constant trimming of grass, the insides get accumulated with debris so clean it each day so as to avoid any mishap or breakedown
  • Gas trimmers have to be powered by new spark plugs after every 100-120 hours
  • For 2 cycle engines, clean up the engine every 200 hours as the combustion chamber is a delicate portion

Pot And Pressure Cooker- Moral Dilemma To Choose One Over The Other

The world is grappling through a very grave pandemic which has shaken the planet down to its very foundation. Never before has anyone all over experienced such a siege atleast in 100 years.

Due to this, everyone is now confined to their house since the past few weeks and the seriousness of this virus can be gauged from the fact that two superpower nations, USA and Italy, having the best medical facilities in the world, are the most affected by this China-originated virus.

While at home, there are many things that can be done to pass the time like watching television, listening to music, etc. but we can also discuss about something different that may have escaped the mind.

Food Aficionado

This is the perfect opportunity for you to polish your culinary skills but first you need to learn about how to cook. Apart from this, your knowledge on different types of cuisine has to be sound and above all, you need to know about cooking utensils like pressure cooker and instant pot, the vessels in which the food is normally cooked and served.

A novice in this field will not have any idea and would normally associate any pot or pan in which he sees food or water being heated as a pressure cooker but that is not the case.

Food lovers are not interested in whether the food they eat is cooked in a pot or pressure cooker if it satisfies their hunger but if you want to learn cooking, this is a nice place to begin with.

Therefore, we will analyze both of them one by one and this comparison is not to show one up on the other but simply for other people to choose their utensil on the basis of preference.

Instant Pot

It is basically defined as a multi cooker, which is an appliance for automated cooking and is measured with the help of a timer. Being multi cookers, they are electrical in nature and are considered a combination of slow and fast pressure cookers.

Over the years, there have been instant pots of many reputed brands that have churned out non-pressure cookers as well that blend perfectly with their counterparts along with rice cookers as well.

Instant pots have different benefits like the ability to cook frozen meat at a faster pace and increasing the flavor of the food by steaming it in the right amount of time and quite fast in nature.


  • It is made of stainless steel and therefore repels dirt in an instant
  • It is quite versatile in nature as its built in sauté function helps in heating vegetables and meat of the exact quantity into it
  • The food that is cooked does not get cold as the ‘keep warm’ option keeps it warm and pleasant


  • Sometimes it does not live up to its name as the pot takes time to pressurize and cook as the steam has to be captured at 210 F which takes at least an hour
  • Despite the food being healthy, it can kill off the nutritional content and minerals in it
  • Due to its bulky frame, it takes a lot of time to clean it up in its entirety

Pressure Cooker

When the food is being cooked in a utensil with high temperature and pressure, then it can be termed as a pressure cooker, which is the most common vessel used for cooking food all over the world.

It is done so to limit down the boiling point and can tolerate temperatures as high as 100-140 degree Celsius.


  • It does not kill the nutrients and minerals of the healthy food being cooked
  • It cooks food about half an hour early
  • As the heat is locked in the pot, the kitchen will remain cooler and come to no harm


  • You cannot cook too many items at the same time as different types of vegetables and items cook quickly or slowly depending on their size
  • You cannot monitor the progress you have made
  • Once the food is placed inside, you cannot adjust or replace it

The argument above was not to stir up an Instant Pot Vs Pressure cooker debate, but simply to help first time cooks select their utensils for cooking.

4 tell-tale signs your water filter requires replacement

Timely replacement of your water filter is as much crucial as the installation of a filter for safe water at home. Every filter comes with a finite lifetime which could be something around 12 months. Some advanced versions like those infused with carbon filters would last for 24 months. For example, as per propur water filter review, propurfilters are equipped with carbon filters and hence would last longer. But irrespective of the filter you choose, it will have an expiry date and nothing is worse than a non-functional filter. Put simply, you will have to make sure to replace your old filter with a new one right on time to ensure safe water for your family.

But, how to locate the right time for replacement? Well, there are some tell-tale signs that will tell you it’s about time your filter might need a replacement.

Gradual drop in overall water pressure

Have you noticed a sudden drop in water pressure lately? Well, if this is the case, then there could be something wrong with your filter. The most viable reason is the filter has got clogged which has plummeted water pressure. So, check your filter and if it is actually clogged, you will need to replace it the earliest possible. Now, if you are down with a clogged filter, please do not try to unclog it yourself. It’s a plumbing complication and you should rather call up your plumber to take care of the situation.

Weird noises from faucet or drain

This sign is particularly applicable for Reverse Osmosis water filter. Now, you might hear odd noises from drains or faucets immediately after you install the filter in your home. Don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal. But, if you start getting such strange noises for a longer period of time, there is certainly something wrong with the filter itself. It’s likely the filter is malfunctioning. In that case, you will have to go for a quick replacement.

Foul taste in water 

Now, this is one of the most prominent signs of a filter past its prime. Does your filtered water taste strange these days- like really foul? It could be because of salt or metal in water. One of the primary tasks of a water filter is to remove unwanted salt and heavy metal from water. If you find presence of these unwanted substances in water it only means that your filter isn’t working and requires immediate replacement.


Turbidity in water refers to cloudy water. Check your water glass in bright light. If it appears to be cloudy, it means the water is not clean and contains pollutants. When you have to face such scenarios despite having a water filter, it’s time for replacement.

Final words

All the points mentioned above are vital signs of filter replacement. Additionally, you should be careful of the water usage guide given by the manufacturer with your filter. Every filter comes with guidelines on water usage. Your filter will be healthy if you stay within the stated limit. But, if you exceed the specified guidelines, your filter would be badly affected and would need an emergency replacement.

Majority of the HYIPs usually pay in daily or weekly interests and you can withdraw it from your payment processor every month or regularly when you want as well. The concept of HYIP is really simple and you are required to invest funds and watch the profits grow with time.

Without patience and control over your greed, you will not be able to make good returns. Only then your account will be provided with solid investment returns on a daily or monthly basis.

If you are planning to invest in HYIPs, then it is high time that you learn and understand the different aspects related to it.

Advertising –

One of the most important factor you need to keep in mind when you are into HYIP investments is advertising. Any HYIP that follows a strict advertising strategy will be able to attract much more attention and focus by the people which tells us that more money will be flowing into that particular company. There is also a bigger opportunity for the company to promote their services to larger segment of people and by doing so, they are able to fulfill their business aims and objectives.

Reputation – 

Before you invest your hard earned money on HYIP, it is absolutely necessary that you check the reputation of the HYIP you have in mind. A good and reliable company will always have a solid reputation in terms of customer support, service, and many other areas. You would not want to invest in a HYIP which offer poor customer support or does not have an experienced team of professionals working. The reason because of which a particular HYIP does not have too much of reputation is because it has a weak performance or it is very new. In case of a HYIP being new, you can wait for some time and then decide what you must do with them.

Earnings Gap Between Plans –

It happens manier times that there are plenty of HYIPs that seem to look absolutely great during the initial days, but only after close review, it is found that they are far too risky to be held for the long term future. There are several plans which are really common during the HYIPs and they usually provide better and much higher return percentages to the larger investors in the community. You will need to calculate the earning gap that is between the plans which offer a better idea of the situation.

Age of the HYIP –

Highlights: How To Get Professional Results At Home

Highlights can bring dimension and style to uniform-colored hair. Costing upwards of fifty dollars at a salon, it’s no wonder that you’re entertaining the idea of doing yours at home. When done properly, DIY highlights can look as good as their professional counterparts. By simply following some easy instructions, you can have gorgeous, natural looking highlights that are sure to turn heads.

First of all, highlighting kits are available at most drug stores. Never use regular hair color to highlight your hair! While I don’t recommend using out-of-the-box colorants to complete a full-head color application, most highlighting kits you can buy at your local supermarket can produce excellent results.

There are two types of kits- the cap and hook kit, which provides a plastic hair cap and a hook that looks like a knitting needle, or a brush kit, which uses either a large ‘mascara’ type brush or a brush folds in the middle and coats hair from both sides. Both kits are useful, but for a highlight novice, I recommend using a cap and hook application. In the box you will find a cap that covers your entire head, that has hundreds of tiny holes in it. Using the hook, you will pull portions of your hair through multiple holes. You can pull a lot of hair out of each hole for drastic highlights, or a little bit for a more subtle look. In most kits, the cap will have a guide that tells you where to pull from if you want ‘face framing’ or ‘all over’ highlights. This process can be a little painful, and needs to be done on dry hair that hasn’t been washed within the last 24 hours. Once all strands have been pulled out successfully, simply mix the highlighter according to the directions and apply to all hair on the outside of the cap. Leave the cap on while the highlights develop in accordance with box directions. Keep tabs on the highlights by watching them in a mirror every five minutes or so. When desired lightening has been achieved or when all time allowed has expired, remove the cap and wash hair with a mild shampoo. Apply a moisturizing conditioner and style as usual, using low heat devices.

If you choose to use a brush kit, you will be highlighting only the top layer of your hair. Simply mix the highlighter according to the instructions and apply to the top layer of hair in sections ranging from ┬╝ inch to 1 ┬╜ inches thick. Stick to three to five sections on each side of the head. Leave to develop according to instructions and rinse with a mild shampoo. Use a moisturizing conditioner and style as usual, also with low heat devices.

With a little knowledge and patience, you can achieve salon quality highlights at home, and save yourself a ton of money in the process. You should also have the equipment needed. In doing DIY, it doesn’t have to be expensive. You can check some helpful and cheap tools at This website is one of the reliable online platforms when it comes to DIY projects at home.

Your “Online Legacy” After Death

For many of us, the Internet has opened a portal to new friendships, new sources of information, new social settings, and new business opportunities. It is expected that by 2013, close to 100 percent of the United States population will be using online services for everything from talking to friends to making business deals – all totally accomplished via the Internet. Unfortunately, many do not realize that their online legacy may be lost and what could be a large part of your family’s inheritance may become cyberlocked and virtually impossible to open.

What happens if you died tomorrow? To whom were you going to leave your PayPal account or your online game identity? Think of how many friends you have “online”. How many would find out and how would they find out that you are not returning to your favorite chat room, game, or blog? How many will assume you found another interest that kept you away from the computer or believe a recent online argument stopped you from logging on?

Many people have accounts with services such as PayPal, ETrade, online Internet banks, or other online companies. Yet others like to read data off the internet such as Revolut bank review. Most people manage any stocks or funds solely while on the Internet. Others have developed a business through eBay for selling items and all of which has to be personally handled on a daily basis.

Many family members may not be aware that you have made several close friends that would want to know if something happened to you. Which of your family members will know how to contact your friends or business associates in order to inform them of your death? Who would have access to your passwords or even know what sites were important to you?

The reality is that everyone does die and important information has been lost due to privacy issues, website and company terms of service, and absolutely no way for family to notify friends or business associates of your death because they do not have the information they need in order to do so.

It is already well known that most people keep their online access private and do not share passwords, online account numbers, or access codes with anyone else, not even family members.

This situation has created a new industry in the online world. One, called Legacy Locker, will store your passwords, access codes, online content, photographs, videos, and any other digital information that you consider to be important, for a fee. Other sites called Deathswitch and Slightly Morbid are setting up emails that will automatically be sent after the user has not logged in either within a certain timeframe or after notification by the family of the user’s demise. There are certain to be many others who will develop their own “storage area” for private personal and business related assets.

According to Computer Industry Almanac Inc, their Internet usage statistics show there were over 1.2 billion PC’s in use worldwide by the end of 2008. In the United States, over 264 million PC’s were in use with the country maintaining a number one lead of over 22 percent of the world’s population and over 86 percent per capita “online”. With personal computers being used for both business and personal reasons, a great deal of information is being opened up to all users. In the United States alone, over 44 percent of the population has been responsible for generating this information through web pages and other online services.

Who will receive your online assets? No one if you do not take steps to make sure those assets can be made available to your loved ones or other significant members of your online community.

Even if you believe these new up and coming industries may not be as safe and secure as you would like or feel you would rather not put important information online, it behooves you to consider saving your important information on paper or to a flash drive to be accessed by family members after your death. Instructions dictating what you want done with your digital assets (and even your gaming name) are just as important to you as with what happens with real or personal property.

Make certain you have included important websites, passwords, user names, the names or online identities of those who need to be notified, and the locations of other stored content. The old-fashioned bank safe deposit boxes have been dependable for years. Make sure a trusted friend, relative, or attorney has the information about how to access your digital assets and keep your online legacy safe and accessible for your family and friends.
