  Regular expression to get html meta description


When we need to process a HTML page source code, we often need to retrieve the meta description of the page besides the links in the page. This description is usually located in <meta> tag of a HTML page. The meta description is very useful for search engine index. How can we retrieve the meta description? If we use a regular expression, we can easily get the meta description. In JavaScript, the regular expression looks like : var pattern = /<meta.*?name="description".*?content="(.*?)"....

  Designing Great API Docs


Writing documentation is one of those things that is dreaded by many developers. It takes a lot of effort and time to get right. And too often, people take shortcuts. This is sad, because well designed documentation is the key to getting people excited about your project, whether it's open source or a developer focused product. In fact, I argue that the most important piece of UX for a developer product isn't the homepage or the sign up process or the SDK download. It's the API documentati...

  Different types of keystore in Java -- DKS


Domain KeyStore(DKS) is a keystore of keystore. It abstracts a collection of keystores that are presented as a single logical keystore. Itself is actually not a keystore. This new keystore type is introduced in Java 8. There is a new class DomainLoadStoreParameter which closely relates to DKS. To load different keystores into the single logical keystore, some configuration is needed. Here is the format of the configuration for grouping different keystores. domain [ ...] { keystore [ ....

  Easy Parallel Processing in PHP


The proliferation of multicore CPUs and the inability of our learned CPU vendors to squeeze many more GHz into their designs means that often the only way to get additional performance is by writing clever parallel software. One problem we were having is that some of our batch processing jobs were taking too long to run. In order to speed the processing, we tried to split the processing file into half, and let a separate PHP process run each job. Given that we were using a dual core serv...

  Algorithm : Delete middle node from singly linked list


Questions about singly linked list are frequently asked during technical interviews. Today we will share with you one algorithm question about singly linked list. Here is the problem description. Assuming the only information you are giving is there is a pointer to a middle node of a singly linked list, no other information about the linked list is given. Please delete this node and don't affect the structure of the linked list. Initially you may think this question is easy if you know the hea...

  Algorithm : Reverse singly linked list


Questions about singly linked list are the lovers of interviewers during interviews given the characteristic that singly linked list is one-directional list and it's difficult to get the previous node of one node without some buffering tricks.  In this post, we will demonstrate one of the most frequently asked question about singly linked list -- Reversing the singly list. Given the first node of a singly linked list, reverse the singly linked list. For example : A->B->C->D After ...
