in reply to programming language

I learnt how to program from two books, both by Donald Alcock 'Illustrating Basic' and 'Illustrating C'. These are both hand written and hand ilustrated, and explain very well what's going on in a program.

I agree with Spenser very strongly. You first have to learn to program - that is to learn how computers 'think'. Trying to learn a language without learning what can be said in it is probably futile. How computers operate is very different to how natural languages operate.

Fatbrain has most of Alcock's books in stock

[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
