Language for working with bid data
View bid-dsl.rb
# The only operators available would be basic arithmetic (+, -, /, *), modulo,
# and parenthesis for grouping. The variables bid, weight, and adjustment
# would be passed in to the DSL scope. Users can define and assign their own
# variables, but these would be limited to local scope within the DSL only.
# Percentage weighting
bid * (weight * 0.01)
# Percentage weighting with adjustment
(bid * (weight * 0.01)) + adjustment

Install script for Tabula
# Tabula installer for Ubuntu 12.10
# This script will build a working install of Tabula in your cwd. I run this
# entire script as root because of the number of software installs. If you're
# not comfortable with that, you're probably able to figure out how to do this
# as a regular user.
# These scripts prefer apt packages that are available by default under Ubuntu
# 12.10, but will fall back to using source distributions where packages are not
# available in the default Ubuntu repositories.
