The Image is Of Mauritius Radio Telescope.. for which I am working on.. So I thought better put this up. When I have some results I will put myself hopefully soon.

I am doing research in area of Astronomy and Astrophysics...I work on perl quite religiously..The nature of my work requires that one has to be comfortable with programming and what better than to do it in perl especially text processing part.

At present I am dealing with preparing a Radio Source Catalogue after making a Southern Sky survey MAP at 151.5 MHz With Mauritious Radio Telescope which involves data processing of 1 TB (Tera Byte) of data. I am using perl programs for same purpose and wow it really has become damn easy than doing it conventioanlly.

...I love perl although I started learning in june 2000...hope one day I'll know it decently..

An interesting fact:- Myfirst programme I wrote in perl was 3500 lines long...so it's a good start anyway...!!

Thanks for visiting me..!

[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
