About Design Patterns

Creates an instance of several families of classes.
Provide an interface for creating families of related or dependent objects without specifying their concrete classes.

Separates object construction from its representation.
Separate the construction of a complex object from its representation so that the same construction process can create different representation.

Creates an instance of several derived classes.
Define an interface for creating an object, but let subclasses decide which class to instantiate. Factory Method lets a class defer instantiation to subclasses.

A fully initialized instance to be copied or cloned.
Specify the kind of objects to create using a prototypical instance, and create new objects by copying this prototype.

A class of which only a single instance can exist.
Ensure a class has only one instance and provide a global point of access to it.

Match interfaces of different classes.
Convert the interface of a class into another interface clients expect. Adapter lets classes work together that couldn't otherwise because of incompatible interfaces.

Separates an object’s interface from its implementation.
Decouple an abstraction from its implementation so that the two can vary independently.

A tree structure of simple and composite object.

Compose objects into tree structures to represent part-whole hierarchies. Composite lets clients treat individual objects and compositions of objects uniformly.

Add responsibilities to objects dynamically.
Attach additional responsibilities to an object dynamically. Decorators provide a flexible alternative to subclassing for extending functionality.

A single class that represents an entire subsystem.
Provide a unified interface to a set of interfaces in a subsystem. Façade defines a higher-level interface that makes the subsystem easier to use.

A fine-grained instance used for efficient sharing.
Use sharing to support large numbers of fine-grained objects efficiently.

An object representing another object.
Provide a surrogate or placeholder for another object to control access to it.

A way of passing a request between a chain of objects.
Avoid coupling the sender of a request to its receiver by giving more than one object a chance to handle the request. Chain the receiving objects and pass the request along the chain until an object handles it.

Encapsulate a command request as an object.
Encapsulate a request as an object, thereby letting you parameterize clients with different requests, queue or log requests, and support undoable operations.

A way to include language elements in a program.
Given a language, define a representation for its grammar along with an interpreter that uses the representation to interpret sentences in the language.

Sequentially access the elements of a collection.
Provide a way to access the elements of an aggregate object sequentially without exposing its underlying representation.

Defines simplified communication between classes.
Define an object that encapsulates how a set of objects interact. Mediator promotes loose coupling by keeping objects from referring to each other explicitly, and it lets you vary their interaction independently.

Capture and restore an object's internal state.
Without violating encapsulation, capture and externalize an object's internal state so that the object can be restored to this state later.

A way of notifying change to a number of classes.
Define a one-to-many dependency between objects so that when one object changes state, all its dependents are notified and updated automatically.

Alter an object's behavior when its state changes.
Allow an object to alter its behavior when its internal state changes. The object will appear to change its class.

Encapsulates an algorithm inside a class.
Define a family of algorithms, encapsulate each one, and make them interchangeable. Strategy lets the algorithm vary independently from clients that use it.

Defer the exact steps of an algorithm to a subclass.
Define the skeleton of an algorithm in an operation, deferring some steps to subclasses. Template Method lets subclasses redefine certain steps of an algorithm without changing the algorithm's structure.

Defines a new operation to a class without change.
Represent an operation to be performed on the elements of an object structure. Visitor lets you define a new operation without changing the classes of the elements on which it operates.

About iPhone

Optimizing Your Project
There are different people on your team list.
Create a list and register them on AppleDevSite as a developer, create your project list to upload (i.e. StarRD.txt) in your porta;
FirstName   LastName   Email
Joe    Doe

There are developer certificates for each team member.
Once each of your team members has created a Certificate Signing Request (i.e. EnriqueEscobar.CertSigningRequest) you may submit uploading at AppleDevCenter.

There is an app ID to provide as com.domain.YourAppID.

There is a provisioning to set. You will need:
  • ProfileName
  • Certificate (a list of registered developers)
  • AppID
  • Device (list of device to register)

There is to validate the developer certificate once your portal admin has accepted you.
Retrieve and install in your own OSX machine the AppleDeveloperCertificate (AppleWWDRCA.cer) and your certificate (developer_identity.cer), you may download it at AppleDevSite.

There is a mobileprovision to deploy.

There are different configurations:

There is a configuration to manage in XCode for your your ProjectName:

  • Right click and choose GetInfo dialog ( or command I)
  • Select tab Configuration
  • On list of configurations choose Release and select the option Duplicate
  • Give a name to this configuration (i.e. Distribution)
  • Close window
There is a Target Information to set:
  • Right click and choose GetInfo dialog
  • Select Build tab
  • Choose Distribution from Configuration drop-down
  • In the Architectures section in the list of settings, choose a Base SDK (e.g. Device - iPhone OS 2.2.1)
  • From the Code Signing Section, under Code Signing Identity, choose the appropriate profile (e.g. Ad Hoc or Distribution Profile)
  • Select Properties tab
  • Set Executable name (e.g. theAstrologerFree). There is a default value here: ${EXECUTABLE_NAME} which will also work for most projects
  • Set Identifier to com.domain.application-name (e.g. com.3SixtySoftware.theAstrologerFree). There is a default value here: com.your company.${PRODUCT_NAME:identifier} which you may work for your project. If you run into errors or conflicts with other applications try replacing ${PRODUCT_NAME:identifier} with a unique string that represents your application name
  • Set Icon File to Icon.png
  • Make sure you have an icon that is 57x57 pixels, with the name Icon.png in the project
  • Set Version # (e.g. 1.1)
  • Close the window
For each active configuration you have to update your project:

There are an Active Configuration to set:
  • Select the Debug workspace button
  • From the drop-down (upper left) choose:
    • Choose the Device Setting you plan to target under Active SDK (e.g. Device - iPhone OS 2.2.1)
    • Choose Distribution as the Active Configuration
  • Select the Project workspace button (the button to the left of Debug)
  • If creating an Ad Hoc Distribution:
    • Create new file (Command N), select Code Signing, choose Entitlements, click Next
    • Name the file Entitlements.plist
    • Uncheck the get-task-allow button
    • Save file
    • Make sure the file is at the root of project hierarchy (e.g. drag the file just below the Project name)
    • Select the Target
    • Right click and choose Get Info dialog
    • Select Build tab
    • Fill in the Code Signing Entitlements with Entitlements.plist
There is a target settings verification to do:
  • Select the Target
  • Right click and choose Get Info dialog
  • Select Properties tab
  • Note the Executable name (e.g. theAstrologerFree)
  • Select Build tab
    • Scroll down to Packaging
    • Verify (or input) the Product Name to match the Executable name from above
  • Close the window

There are different *.plist foreach configuration to verify:

  • Check the Info.plist in the resources folder
  • Check the following:
    Bundle Display Name - this is the text that will appear on the iPhone Home screen under the icon
    Executable name - this should match what youʼve entered in the Properties settings
    Icon must be set to Icon.png
    Bundle Identifier - for example com.3SixtySoftware.theAstrologerFree
    Bundle version - for example 1.1

For each configuration you have a Certificate *.cer and an ID *.p12 (it starts with iPhone):

There are different certificates for different users:

There is a Clean and Build to do:
  • From the Build menu choose choose Clean All Targets
  • From the Build menu choose Build (Command B)


We always read the manual.

About Cygwin

Installation and package selection

A good habit is to always have the latest cygwin_setup_executable to have.
Since 2015 you need the lib-usb library to install and the Bonjour Print Services native library from Apple.
In order to have an optimal execution you should always install it on C:\cygwin\ or on D:\cygwin\ .
Install it for "All Users" using the "Unix / binary" mode.

In future updating of packages already on your system, you can simply start the installer and keep hitting "Next" without any other interaction. It remembers what you've already told it.
Now setup.exe has been primed with your preferences, you can update your installation using "unattended" mode with -q.

Cygwin 1.7's setup.exe introduces a -P switch which takes a list of extra packages.
$] setup.exe -q -P aspell-en,cron,ctags,exim,gcc-g++,inetutils,make,mingw-runtime,ncurses,openssh,patch,perl,python,ruby,rxvt,subversion,vim

You may have this output at login.

Your group is currently "mkgroup".  This indicates that
the /etc/group (and possibly /etc/passwd) files should be rebuilt.
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for example, run
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd
mkgroup  -l [-d] > /etc/group
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users.

&] cp /etc/passwd /etc/passwd.orig
&] mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
&] cp /etc/group /etc/group.orig
&] mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group

If you don't know otherwise then you should follow the suggestion, including the note about -d where relevant. After doing that, double-click on the Cygwin icon again to set up your home directory. If you don't then, for example, Terminator will fail to find your home directory and refuse to start.
Even on Cygwin-1.7, you will want to follow the above instructions if, for example, ssh is to think of your home directory as something other than /tmp .

Version validation
$] grep -e 'Installing .*cygwin-[0-9].*\.bz2' /var/log/setup.log

Using environment variables

We may use the following:
  • CYGWIN='tty acl nodosfilewarning title glob winsymlinks proc_retry:3' #ntsec deprecated
  • CYGWIN_HOME=D:\cygwin
  • CYGWIN_PATH=%CYGWIN_HOME%\bin;%CYGWIN_HOME%\sbin;%CYGWIN_HOME%\usr\bin;%CYGWIN_HOME%\usr\sbin;%CYGWIN_HOME%\usr\local\bin
  • CYGWIN_PATH=D:\cygwin\bin;D:\cygwin\sbin;D:\cygwin\usr\bin;D:\cygwin\usr\sbin;D:\cygwin\usr\local\bin
  • LANG=en_US.UTF-8
  • TERM=cygwin
  • HOME="%HOME%\%HOMEPATH%" # A) map it to your windows home using windows user variables *
  • HOME=E: for system and export HOME=%HOME %\%USERNAME% # B) map it to another drive *
  • &] rm -rf "/home/$USERNAME" ; ln -s "/home/$HOME" "/home/$USERNAME" # only for A) and B) *
  • HOME="/home/%USERNAME%" # C) create a default directory in cygwin using windows user variables
  • concat HOME to fstab: $] echo "$USERPROFILE /home/$USERNAME ntfs binary  0 0" >>/etc/fstab ; # D) mount your windows home
  • &] unset TEMPDIR; export TEMPDIR=/temp
  • &] unset TMP; export TMP=/tmp
  • &] unset TEMP; export TEMP=/temp
  • &] export EDITOR=
  • &] export VISUAL=

Optimizing Hard Drive
There are good Drives to have:
  • /root folder with its environment variable &] unset ROOTDRIVE; export ROOTDRIVE=/root
  • /Applications folder with its environment variable &] unset APPSDRIVE; export APPSDRIVE=/Applications
  • /home folder with no environment variable export ?
  • /data folder with its environment variable &] unset DATADRIVE; export DATADRIVE=/data
  • /shar folder with its environment variable &] unset SHARDRIVE; export SHARDRIVE=/shar
  • /opt folder with its environment variable &] unset OPTSDRIVE; export OPTSDRIVE=/opt
Choosing a better console: rxvt

You can launch it using:
$] /usr/bin/rxvt -fn Terminal -scrollBar_right -bg blue4 -fg white -ls --saveLines 9999

Adding cool commands
There are good commands to have:
  • tree from his website copy it to / and uncompress it to install
  • mrxvt from his website and follow the procedure
  • fonts
  • asd
Default permissions

$] chmod o-w /usr/local/bin
$] chmod o-w /usr/local
$] chmod o-w /usr
$] chmod o-w /etc
$] chmod o-w /usr/sbin
$] chmod o-w /usr/bin
$] chmod o-w /usr/X11R6/bin
$] chmod o-w /usr/X11R6
$] chmod o-w /cygdrive/c

Install aptitude for cygwin

Try this apt-cyg a command-line installer for Cygwin which cooperates with Cygwin Setup and uses the same repository. The syntax is similar to apt-get.
$] svn --force export /bin/ 
$] chmod +x /bin/apt-cyg
$] apt-cyg install nano 

Its usage goes as it follows:
  • "apt-cyg install " to install packages
  • "apt-cyg remove " to remove packages
  • "apt-cyg update" to update setup.ini
  • "apt-cyg show" to show installed packages
  • "apt-cyg find " to find packages matching patterns
  • "apt-cyg describe " to describe packages matching patterns
  • "apt-cyg packageof " to locate parent package

Case sensitive filenames

In the Win32 subsystem filenames are only case-preserved, but not case-sensitive. You can't access two files in the same directory which only differ by case, like Abc and aBc. While NTFS (and some remote filesystems) support case-sensitivity, the NT kernel starting with Windows XP does not support it by default. Rather, you have to tweak a registry setting and reboot. For that reason, case-sensitivity can not be supported by Cygwin, unless you change that registry value.
If you really want case-sensitivity in Cygwin, you can switch it on by setting the registry value
"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\kernel\obcaseinsensitive"
to 0 and reboot the machine. For least surprise, Cygwin expects this registry value also on Windows NT4 and Windows 2000, which usually both don't know this registry key. If you want case-sensitivity on these systems, create that registry value and set it to 0. On these systems (and only on these systems) you don't have to reboot to bring it into effect, rather stopping all Cygwin processes and then restarting them is sufficient.
