  • Patent number: 10521204
    Abstract: A compiler may perform type checking as part of analyzing source code. The type checking may include existential type packing for structurally-restricted existential types. At compile time, the compiler may need to use an existential type that does not conform to the language's structural rules. The compiler may apply the “pack” operation described herein to produce a supertype of the desired existential type that does conform to the language's structural rules, and thus can be used as an approximation of the desired type. The compiler may then perform additional type checking using the resulting type.

  • Publication number: 20090010643
    Abstract: Component malfunctions in passive optical networks (PON) can increase bit error rates and decrease signal-to-noise ratio in communications signals. These faults may cause the receivers of the signals, either the optical line terminal (OLT) or optical network terminals (ONTs), to experience intermittent faults and/or may result in misinterpreted commands that disrupt other ONT's communication, resulting in a rogue ONT condition. Existing PON protocol detection methods may not detect these types of malfunctions. An embodiment of the present invention identifies faults in a PON by transmitting a test series of data patterns via an optical communications path from a first network node to a second network node. The test series is compared to an expected series of data patterns. An error rate may be calculated as a function of the differences between the test series and expected series. The error rate may be reported to identify faults in the PON.

  • Patent number: 5193152
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing for arbitrary definintion of groups in a data communication network management system. Groups are added, modified, merged, deleted or displayed as desired by the user so that all members of the arbitrarily defined group can be addressed as a group, for example to do a self test and report results. Collectives can be defined as members of the group and the collectives can be unpacked at the time of issuance of a command rather than at the time of creation of the group so that changes to the collective are reflected as changes to the group automatically. Provision is made for creating groups which are commonly desired and significant group configuration activity is logged to either a printer or a file.

  • Patent number: 5163242
    Abstract: A spear structure is defined by an elongate truncated conical body formed with a forward section and rear section intercommunicated by a frangible hollow sleeve arranged for separating the forward section relative to the rear section upon impact. A spring member directed through the sleeve and secured at its upper and lower distal ends to the forward and rear sections secures the forward and rear sections together upon such separation to preserve the rear section for reuse.

  • Patent number: 4315592
    Abstract: A receptacle for used expendable hypodermic needles and syringes is disclosed. The receptacle includes a container having baffles as an upper closure, there being two baffles having openings off-set from each other so that items within the container will not be contacted by a person depositing another item into the container. One of the baffles can be moved to a closed position in which it closes the openings to seal off the container, and a tab locks the baffle in the closed position.
