In SharePoint with NodeJs development, Microsoft was suggesting us to use Node 6.9.x, now microsoft website is updated and telling us to use Node8.9.x, I tried which failed.

Filter out 64 bits instructions

correct way to filter out 64 bits instructions in 16 or 32 bits mode in antlr grammar. Some intel instructions only support 16 or 32 bits mode, so assembler must tell user those instructions are wrong when they are in 64 bits mode.

Test cases in antlr grammar file

I am developing an Assembler, i think the best way is to embed the test case into the grammer, all those test cases are just one single line of assembly code. But now no way to do this in Antlr grammar. I am thinking to create a maven plugin to pre-process the grammar file. Add…

SharePoint Online get all items with fields specified by view

I am not sure i am correct or not. There is no /_api/web/lists/GetByTitle(‘your list’)/View/getbytitle(‘your view’)/items restful api for SharePoint online.
