Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?Hi GIB; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20121119 06:49:04
Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?Hi! Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #6 20121119 22:07:13

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?I think basic is the second language I came to learn about. I still love it a lot for its simplicity 'And fun?

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?Your second! That is amazing, BASIC is almost always the first one. As a matter of fact you are the only exception known to me!

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?Actually, my love for programming began when we were taught a turtlegraphics language called LOGO at school 'And fun?

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?My first programming language, when I was around 7, was essentially BASIC. Hence, I still love it. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?My first programming language was FORTRAN, but I like BASIC better. I like MAPLE's programming Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional).

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?
That is why I am here to make you even more confused than before. Post what problems you have and maybe... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is Anyone using BASIC Anymore?confuse....? bobbym....why do you want to confuse some else.. Jake is Alice's father, Jake is the ________ of Alice's father? Why is T called island letter? think, think, think and don't get up with a solution... #21 20130608 00:08:35
