Can we get a Zig Forums book thread going? Post them if you got them.

I'm looking for good book for learning Lua programming, if anyone has one.

Amazing how the Unix haters handbook has an entire chapter dedicated to shitting on Sepples, yet it barely mentions the real culprit, which is C.
Most of the flaws mentioned are because of its C heritage, especially the preprocessor issues.

Not saying Sepples is good, it's a deeply flawed language, but overall it's less harmful than C and quite a few of its flaws can be justified by the intent of backwards compatibility with C.
But C has no excuses.

You don't really need one imo, you are better off messing with an implementation. Love2d and lualatex would probably be the least amount of work to set up regardless of your platform.

lol like who reads books? just lol use wikipedia, youtube, and stack overflow, like everyone else. books... lol. its like technology man, so that stuff is out of date as soon as it is printed. i honestly didn't know books were still even written, surely not printed. like lets say you want to learn some pretty complex math, like, i dunno the quadratic formula? You going to youtube that, and get an answer in 3 mins, right? How long it take if I read a dumb ass book ahahaha. like anything, its all there online. you don't need to walk around holding 5000 books anymore just to know something.

how many exploits and ip loggers are embedded in these pdfs

none that I'm aware of as far as my pile of shit, I can at least promise that much. I even went as far as removing the password preventing copying text out of them whenever I remembered to do so.

Hudson Lewis

I opened them in a non-networked Tails session so those exploits and IP loggers don't matter, probably. Tor Browser explicitly advises you to do this every time you download a file.

Charles Ross

how do those systems protect the bios/efi? it can be flashed and reconfigured from a running os.. not sure if there are any free software to do it with but theres proprietary software for windows that can do both.

Nathan Miller
Nathan Miller

the pdf 1.7 format is publicly available for you to perform your own analysis, but somehow I don't feel like linking you to more large pdfs will make you feel any better. PDFs on imageboards are probably a terrible way to spread shit because they generally sit in a larper folder unread, which is the real shame here.

John Williams
John Williams

Nobody has time to make modified malicious bios image for all the thousands of different motherboard models. Also I'm pretty sure most motherboards don't allow flashing the bios without specifically booting into the bios first.
ip loggers
Is there a way to make pdf file cause a connection to remote server without javascript? Like embedding remote content, eg. pixel tag like in html emails? With javascript even Adobe reader ask for permission before connecting to remote servers.

You would have to find a 0-day in something popular like mupdf or adobe crap that involve how badly things handle a giant bloated format, which I don't have time for no. But I don't think arbitrary code execution from a specially crafted pdf would be entirely outside the realm of possibility. Not worth it to me to mess with the 5 people who will bother to read any of what I posted.

I got some but I still prefer dead trees. Apart from all the stuff I got for my degree I have SICP and Free as in Freedom. I'd recommend both even though they are completely different. SICP is well known as being a classic on the principles of program design; Free as in Freedom is the perspective of FSF and friends, especially Stallman, on the history of free (as in freedom) software

The one about Machine Language for Commodore computers by Jim Butterfield. I have not come so far into it yet but its the one recommended by all if you want to learn machine language on the c64. It also has a cool font for the numbers :) pic related.
I want to learn stuff I can use on the c64 and machine language and Forth is what I find most interesting. Maybe mostly Forth though because that can be used on my laptop also.

Anything good to read for a brainlet who wants to build a layout engine?
Wanted to design a pluggable layout engine that takes CSS rules and builds a layout tree from markup. Anything I can read to get a good idea on theory and mechanisms, before I start taking apart other engines like KHTML or Gecko?
There's a lot of articles, blogs and toy engines, but they're all extremely bare.

Jacob Clark
Jacob Clark

On the surface, there isn't a very good reason for a book on that to exist. You implement specifications\standards then test them, thats it. With a small catch...
before I start taking apart other engines like KHTML or Gecko
You won't have a choice, you are going to get fucked into emulating bugs in the most popular engine.
Standards and such if I didn't dissuade you, unrelated pdfs if I did.

Makes sense. Thought maybe someone would have written SOMETHING on any kind of layout engine, for example efficient ways to calculate content boxes, line widths and all that jazz.
Much less specific to HTML rendering, and more on the broader ideas of how engines handle that actual placement of objects, and what's the best way to fiddle with a layout tree that's subject to live changes.

Standards and such if I didn't dissuade you
I'm already ankle-deep in w3c specs. I'll keep the others around for reference tho.

The problem I have with book threads is that there're an awful lot of books uploaded, but absolutely no discussion on what's actually worth reading.

For the simplest possible case:
uploaded 2 books on Lua programming; were I a beginner interesting in learning the language which should I choose? No idea.

I still think these threads have their merits, but maybe we should try a literature recommendation thread where people can post books/papers they've actually read with a few words on why it's interesting, rather than just dumping a folder.

Jace King

Hey user, it's almost like you need to use your brain to do research instead of being spoon fed! Maybe you should ask which one is best for beginners or >>>goback

There's a command line tool for flashing BIOs. Though force writing a BIOs will usually brick a system if you don't have the right software.

Flash attacks happen in the wild. PDOS attacks that involve force writing of a BIOS are fairly uncommon but they do happen.

But yeah, I don't think there's a big market for custom BIOs bootkits. Would be a great persistence method if you are a serious hacker though.

But honestly the level of autism this requires is beyond most people's skill level.

I can't be bothered for the most part. I'm not going to be able to inspire anybody to read anything I post, I share for the people already motivated enough to look up what they are about for themselves. Especially since I haven't read everything I have yet, and a good chunk of them aren't made to be read, just referenced.
I agree that a literature recommendation thread would be nice, but anything I would post that would be good for it would be things recommended/referenced elsewhere like a domain specific wiki or source code for a large project. As long as it doesn't waste time with lang related stuff, how many books does one really need for C/fourth/scheme that wasn't written by one of the designers/contributors? For C++/Java/python stuff you generally have to decide how out of date your book is when current documentation will generally suffice (as much as it can anyway). And lastly, the big ebook libraries are full of pointless garbage.
Also ignoring the obvious solution of trying to read them first. It's the fear of wasting effort even though more time is wasted trying to find the "perfect" way to start even though it hardly matters.
