  • Publication number: 20190377662
    Abstract: Method and system are provided for identifying a source file for use in debugging compiled code. The method includes referencing a compiled file for debugging and searching for potential source files of the compiled file from configured repositories. The method obtains the potential source files from the configured repositories and iterates over the obtained potential source files to compile and compare each potential source file to the compiled file. One or more matching source files are identified for use in debugging the compiled file.

  • Patent number: 10188081
    Abstract: There is provided a port and perch insert for fitting into an aperture through a wall of a container of a birdfeeder. The port and perch insert comprises a port (34), a perch (32), and a snap fit element which flexes to snap over an edge of the aperture and retain the port and perch insert to the container (12). The snap fit element comprises: a protrusion which snaps over the edge of the aperture to engage against an inside surface of the container; a flexible root portion which connects the snap fit element to a main body of the port and perch insert, and a paddle portion (56) which is pushable from outside the container once the port and perch insert has been fitted to the container, to allow the port and perch insert to be removed from the container.

  • Publication number: 20170243180
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to programming a payment device that can be in the same form factor as a typical credit or debit card and which can be programmed and reprogrammed with various payment profiles. The payment device is interfaced with a mobile device, such as through insertion into a module capable of holding the payment device within proximity to a main housing of the mobile device. The payment device can include both a magnetic stripe and an IC chip which is capable of near field communication. In embodiments of the invention, the mobile device, such as a cellular phone, includes a memory element. The memory element securely stores payment profiles of financial accounts which are commonly found on credit, debit, gift, transit and loyalty cards. When a payment profile stored in the memory element of the mobile phone is selected, the mobile phone writes the profile onto the payment device.

  • Publication number: 20150342152
    Abstract: A port and perch insert for fitting into an aperture in a wall of a container of a bird feeder comprises a two-part combination of a first part with a port having, a first engaging element to engage the container wall within the container and a second part in the form of a locking member engageable with the first part and having a second engaging element which engages with the container wall when the two parts are inserted and locked together. The first and second engaging elements between them retain the insert in engagement with the container wall in such a way that the second part must be disengaged from the first to enable both parts to be removed from the container wall.

  • Patent number: 5731918
    Abstract: The invention relates to a lens mounting suitable for use in a high performance optical instrument. The mounting (10) comprises a body or housing, a linear guide (16; 18; 36; 46; 64) mounted on the body, a lens carriage (14; 34; 44; 62) moveable along the linear guide, and a linear drive, which may be in the form of a ball-screw drive and comprising a ball-screw (20; 80) extending substantially parallel to the linear guide and a ball-screw follower (22; 68) linked to the lens carriage such that rotation of the ball-screw moves the carriage axially along the guide. One or more elements of the ball-screw drive are mounted relative to the linear guide to permit a degree of relative movement therebetween to accomodate misalignment between the linear guide and ball-screw.
