Languages I'm currently comfortable in and with (in
Perl — My Perl fan page!
HTML — A page linking to experimental pages
for trying out new web pet tricks
- Lisp — Ramblings about 'lots of silly insipid parenthesis'
Python — an article about
converting from PGN to XML
C++ — Not as much fun as 'C', but still…
- Assembler — My first 'real' language was IBM 360 BAL; Basic Assembler Language. My guide to this arcana was a book entitiled 370/360, Assembler Language Programming by Nancy Stern. Despite what some may tell you about low level programming, few offerings in those long ago days offered as much power— heady stuff!
Platforms I like:
- Unix (any)
- Windows (any)
- Palm OS
Favorite excuse to program:
Chess This is an article about what it takes me to go from playing a game in a tournament to posting the game on this web site. It is extremely dated, but I keep it around since it shows the process and my solution. It is still not a solved problem and I'm still looking for ways to smooth out the speed bumps— someday!
The lists on this page point to links, articles and code that I've
published on this site. In some cases, there are also links
to current news/articles/updates and such like as seems
useful. There are no restrictions on the code, not even
copy-left! Just plain old what you see is what you get free
stuff – and darn well worth it…
