in reply to Any interesting philosophy of programming articles to recommend?

This not a philosopy of progamming article or book. But programming is based on languages (albeit not natural ones) so it is good to have a command of the basic concepts.

So I recommend Programming Languages: Concepts and Constructs, 2nd Ed. Ravi Sethi

He presents the concepts in context by giving examples in different languages. I have the first edition, I don't know what is new in the 2nd one.

[Cosmic37]: ok fankyou - I was wondering about that but thought there might be a redefine command or something; peachy
[Lotus1]: Cosmic37 if you undef $/ in a local context to a block it won't affect the global version after the block finishes
[Lotus1]: or you can just do local $/ in a block
[erix]: cool
