in reply to My first computer was...

KayproII maybe around 1980. these were 2.5mhz 64K CP/M variants of what were called "big boards" with two SSDD floppies. I was a graduate student at the time and spent a fortune on it but it set me free from the computer center, TSO and the IBM mainframe. The Kaypro II was built like a tank and except for the buzz of the drives was silent - no fan even. I used it for general programming and word processing using an nroff like program -- think it was called perfect writer. It came with wordstar and a compiler called S-basic or structured basic that was pascal like. I wrote lots of programs in S-basic until I got a $35 compiler called Turbo Pascal. There were other languages like Nevada Fortand and Cobol that were cheap or you could buy $500 compilers that were no better. Those were fun times with computers. Now, perl has brought some of the fun back into programming for me.

[shmem]: man perlfunc |perl -nle '$ok++ if /Alphabetical Listing of Perl Functions/;if($ok ){$s{$1}++if /^ (\w+)/}}{for(keys %s){$f="prototype \\\&CORE::$_"; eval"$f"||delete $CORE::{$_}}print for sort keys%CORE::'
[shmem]: well, there are some builtins which don't have a prototype...
[Discipulus]: eh eh.. i was looking in toke.c but dunno if is already used
[shmem]: oh the whitespace in the regex got condensed, meh
[shmem]: should be /^ {7}(\w+)/ or such
[shmem]: ...at least for my perldoc on Linux debian 8
