    A derivative of Lisp, Logo, was created for children and taught in some schools. Still, procedure programming is paramount. If people think in terms of functional programming, then why isn't some...

    Re: Best programming language to learn next?

    I still think that learning assembler after you know the basics of coding will give you more insight to what a computer is capable of. I would download one of the C64 emulators and have a go. The C64...
  9. Re: Are escapes necessary (or preferable) in substituted regex patterns?

    The first one is preferred because there is less to understand.



    No, the character immediately after the "s" is the separator that separates the pattern from the replacement. The preferred way...

    Re: Beginning to program

    A lot of scripting languages, Perl, Python, Ruby, will run on any machine. And since they are scripting languages, there is no need to compile them. And yes, they do run at speeds comparable to Java.

    Re: Beginners programming challenge #29

    It seems to me that the hardest part of this challenge is figuring out the policy the program should follow and not the code.

    I'm assuming you mean the Gregorian Calendar in France, which was adopted in 1582, not England's (and America's) of 1752.

    Re: How can I write my own smarthone OS?

    With effort. The reason for studying MINIX is to understand OSes in general. I don't know enough about mobile to know how big a task it would be. But from what I know about OSes and programming in...

    Re: How can I write my own smarthone OS?

    It's a great book; I have the 1st edition of it. All OSes are essentially the same. Learn one will give you a solid foundation to understanding how they might work on mobiles.
