When I was a lad (knee high to a whippersnapper) I used to write BASIC programs. So far so good. I then moved on to assembler. Then finally C when the home micro had grown large enough to run a decent compiler (some would say it still hasn't but that is another argument for a long rainy afternoon). You might say I've spent my whole career writing C programs (with a good few lashings of assembler of course) but funnily enough all the programs I seem to write now-a-days seem to be in Perl ;-)
You've just got to love that string handling if you've been a C hacker ;-) Though does it soften your brain?
Sorry this isn't a bio just a ramble, but who cares!
Some other links for stuff I keep losing
PS That's me, with my two kids - I'm the big one in the middle ;-) Apologies for the animation - I got carried away with the GIMP ;-)
