    1. You may believe that there is a relationship between 10,000 m running performance and VO2max (i.e., the larger an athlete's VO2max, the better their running performance), but you would like to know if this relationship is affected by wind speed and humidity (e.g., if the relationship changes when taking wind speed and humidity into account since you suspect that athletes' performance decreases in more windy and humid conditions).

      An example of partial correlation.

    1. rsync -azvvP /home/path/folder1/ /home/path/folder2

      Or the case with remotes:

    1. After doing some research, we found mochiglobal, a module that exploits a feature of the VM: if Erlang sees a function that always returns the same constant data, it puts that data into a read-only shared heap that processes can access without copying the data. mochiglobal takes advantage of this by creating an Erlang module with one function at runtime and compiling it.

      This is a cool trick and it sounds like partial evaluation and just-in-time compilation.
