( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
How come there was no category for good old BASIC? True, my 386 does run linux now, but AFAIK my PCjr is incapable of running anything other than DOS. There's nothing else to do with it but write cheesy pacman clones. I mean, remember when this was cool:
10 clear,,,32768
Sweet! Now you had access to the super-l33t 320x200x16 graphics mode that the PCjr was packing. No more 4 color crap for me.

IIRC, there exists a website devoted to old (GWBASIC or BASICA) BASIC programs. They post challeneges up weekly, which always seem to get solved (ie, DES implementations or TCP/IP stacks). I remember being especially happy and proud when i wrote a really simple Mandlebrot generator (it took forever to generate a picture). Trying to use imaginary numbers in a language that didn't have them was an incredible learning excercise...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
