Yeah, I noticed a falloff in posts around Christmas, lasting until
the SuperBowl was over. Maybe people are too dulled from partying to be thinking about code? Actually today was the first day in a long time, that there seemed to be alot of posts.
Not that anyone would notice my lack of posts, but
I've been spending my time trying to learn enough c to do GLib . To me, it is a nice attempt to fix some c problems, like c strings, arrays ,hashs and automatic memory allocation. Its also a breeze to do threads with GLib, much easier than Perl, because it lets you use shared values and subs without declaring them as shared. I've noticed the C++ people have done alot with Boost , which has libraries for handling text that almost make it as convenient as Perl, but its about 200 Megs of libraries which you need to learn. I'll make an attempt toward Glib, but leave Boost for the next generation. :-)
So it seems that the compiled languages c and c++ are making great strides toward better usablity...... but there are still those f*c*ing Makefiles, which I don't ever think I will ever grasp.
But maybe the lack of Perl questions, is a symptom of it's success? It has made almost all common problems easy to solve, and most questions have been repeatedly answered before, and can be found by a quick google search.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
