Mathematics in Markdown

From Wiki - 
Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name.[8] Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing messages in online discussion forums, and to create rich text using a plain text editor(extensions - *.markdown , *.md ). website
Best thing of markdown files is you can convert the same into html without any issue. 

I've introduced with Markdown files when I have started to put my code on GitHub ( Started with little up n downs but after I've fallen for it, Its easy to write ReadMe or Math Equations files in markdown with little help.

In this tutorial, I have focused on Mathematics part only, for writing math formulas, Markdown is using LaTeX symbols for Greek letters, Brackets, Sign operator and lots of other symbols.

I have consolidated few of them and will add more,
Hoping, you will find it useful -  Direct Link

5 Tips For Better DataStage Design #17

**  There is an automap button in some stages,it can maps fields with the same names.

**  When you add a shared container into your job you need to map the columns of the container to your job link. What you might miss is the extra option you get on the Columns tab "Load" button. In addition to the normal column load you get "Load from Container" which is a quick way to load the container metadata into your job.

**  Don't create a job from an empty canvas. Always copy and use an existing job. Don't create shared containers from a blank canvas, always build and test a full job and then turn part of it into a container.

**  If you want to copy and paste settings between jobs,you had better open two Designers,then you can have two property windows open at the same time and copy or compare them more easily.As most property windows in DataStage are modal and you can only have one property window open per Designer session.

**  You can load metadata into a stage by using the "Load" button on the column tab or by dragging and dropping a table definition from the Designer repository window onto a link in your job. For sequential file stages the drag and drop is faster as it loads both the column names and the format values in one go. If you used the load button you would need to load the column names and then the format details separately.

**  Maybe you often meet a Modify stage or stage function working incorrectly, trial and error should be often the only way to work out the syntax of a function. If you do this in a large and complex job, it can be consumed a lot of times to debug it. The better way is have a couple test jobs in your project with a row generator, a modify or transformer stage and a peek stage. Have a column of each type in this test job. Use this throughout your project as a quick way to test a function or conversion. By the way, to correctly running the transformer stage need install the c++ compiler.
