Re: weight lifting miracle today

You are making me curious but I will not pester you with any questions about it. 70 hr weeks is hard work, you must have loved it.

Yes, it was my most brainy job I ever had and most successful output per time put in job I ever worked.  Later I worked with Windows© smile software, and I never grasped it, too big, too much too learn.

I know what you mean. I tried Windows programming too but found it boring.

The neat thing about the old Dos programming was that you could still make buttons on the screen for the machine operator, you just had to design the whole thing from scratch, but that made it more interesting and flexible too.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I agree, back then that was the attraction of assembly language. The high speed was great but you had to do it all. Nowadays you just drag buttons and things right down from a main menu. One, two, three it is done.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Ever tried Euphoria programming language?  I wrote out *.WAV files with it and wrote a songwriting program that can play 24 notes in an octave, that means there is a note in between each note on the piano's chromatic scale, allowing for UFO sounds and stuff.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hi;

No, that is one I never used/tried. Is it like Pascal ( delphi )?

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I used Euphoria for Windows, they have it for DOS too still.  It's free, see website if want.
It's cool because you can make lists and arrays that can grow and all the memory allocation is kept hidden from you.  There is a manual or two to read by some of the community that built it.  I took Pascal in college, but really it is easier in some ways.  The types of data, like integer and char and string and stuff are not conventional, you'd have to read about it to see, but it is really neat.  I haven't used it for about 8 months now.  I go back to my program to improve it about twice a year.  And don't forget to back up your fav programs you write onto ministicks, I'm sure you do.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hi John;

Okay, thanks for telling me about it. I did not like Pascal very much or Delphi for that matter. I got stuck on functional languages like lisp and have remained with them.

Can you get a version of LISP for free or must you purchase it?  (open source LISP?)

Re: weight lifting miracle today

There is scheme, which I believe is free still and it is very much like lisp. Also there is Allegro lisp which makes you register to get a key but then it is free. I am sure there are others. Check before you download because software changes its terms ever now and then.

Yeah I just got the stalin compiler with makefile.
I may read about it more later. (for scheme lisp)

Re: weight lifting miracle today

It is a little weird in how it works. Functional languages are different than procedural ones.

It is. You do not have to get too caught up in it. I just mentioned it as something I used to do.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hi John;

I think it was used by the DOD at one time. I never used it so I do not know.

Yep, wiki says DoD used it and Ada is named after aleged 1st programmer from 1800's!!
Hey, you know the two guys that invented C? 
They wrote a cool small book with a tremendous last chapter with the syntax of C very well defined.
I read it over and over long ago.

I think the C authors were named Kernigan and Ritchie, if my 17 year memory subsists.

I used to use the Herbert Schildt book for that.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Oh, thanks for that, Schildt, interesting name.  I was working on a code in Help Me and someone deleted the post just because it had an email address in it.  Couldn't the moderator just delete the email address and leave the code I was working on.?

Hi John;

That was me and I do apologize but that was a nasty spammer who likes to post porn. I have had him before under different names. If I let him persist then he drops the other stuff which is very offensive.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

oh, I see.  I had just formed a theory that the second word after the second comma in the second sentence was either "tools", "books", or "enough" in French, when my post said it lost its connection or something when I submitted it.

That was because I had to delete his post which takes out the whole thread unfortunately. He is barred for now but he will be back. I am truly sorrow that you had to penalized.

Oh, well it was a hard code to break, and maybe was just cobbledy-gook anyway.
