Der Leopard zeigt Microsoft die Krallen: Das neue Betriebssystem "Mac OS X Leopard" von Apple stellt nicht nur auf Intel-Chips um, es macht auch einen Riesensatz nach vorn. Die wohl wichtigste der vielen Neuerungen: Boot Camp, das nun in das Betriebssystem integriert ist, unterstützt Windows Vista. Mit Time Machine kann man auch längst gelöschte Dokumente, Fotos oder Songs wieder aus der Versenkung herausholen. Und dass Macs nicht nur praktisch sind, sondern auch ästhetisch ansprechend, beweist "Mail", das neue E-Mail-Programm von Apple, das edel gestylte Vorlagen liefert.

Abaelards "Historia calamitatum"

Text - Übersetzung - literaturwissenschaftliche Modellanalysen

Author: Dag Nikolaus Hasse

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 9783110170122

Category: Authors, Latin (Medieval and modern)

Page: 322

Peter Abelard's autobiography, the Historia calamitatum, is one of the best-known medieval texts, especially because of the story of his love for Heloise which it recounts. In recent decades, there was so much controversy about the authenticity of the documents concerning Abelard and Heloise that the critical interpretation of the texts was relegated to the sidelines. The present volume provides a way out of this impasse. In it, the famous text is subjected to a series of exemplary analyses from the perspectives of seven different 20th century literary theories (aesthetics of reception, Foucault, Gender Studies, Rhetorical Stylistic Analysis, Psychology of Literature, Cultural Studies, Deconstruction). The analyses are preceded by the Latin text of the Historia calamitatum with a modern German translation. This is thus the first time that the Historia calamitatum has been presented in a bilingual edition.

Der Autor vermittelt eine solide Grundlage f r die Entwicklung leistungsstarker, skalierbarer und sicherer UNIX-Netzwerkanwendungen. Ausgehend von der Programmierung parallel zueinander arbeitender Prozesse erfolgt eine kompakte Einf hrung in die UNIX-Systemprogrammierung und in die Programmierung von POSIX-Threads (Pthreads), die insbesondere f r parallele Anwendungen Effizienzsteigerungen bietet. Anschlie_end wird die Entwicklung von Netzwerkanwendungen ausf hrlich dargelegt: basierend auf den Prinzipien des TCP/IP-Protokolls, wie z.B. Drei-Wege-Handshake, erfolgt eine fundierte Darstellung der Programmierung von UNIX-Sockets, dem De-facto-Standard f r die UNIX-Netzwerkprogrammierung, und aller wichtigen Socket-Funktionen und -Optionen sowie der IP-Namens- und IP-Adressumwandlungen. Der Autor legt damit ein solides Fundament f r die Entwicklung netzwerkfdhiger Anwendungen. Dabei wird auf Sicherheitsaspekte insbesondere durch die ausf hrliche Darstellung des SSL- und TLS-Protokolls eingegangen.
