May you only receive this post once. Yesterday I posted from my webhosts
email browser and it got a little carried away and sent several posts. The
webhost is currently head scratching on the problem.
My name is Tom Schaeper and I'm and language junkie. I love new languages
because the paradigm of each one forces a new way of thinking about a
I am at heart a Basic programmer and my profession is as a programmer in
PICK/Universe/Unidata databases. I chose that vocation because the
enviroment encouraged creating applications as opposed to writing code,
Over the years I have dabbled in:
Forth: wrote a pong style game on an Atari 800
C: Not really my style
Snobol: Kinda fun once you get the syntax
APL: Wonderfully compact language
LISP: Very powerful, but pretty ugly
Fortran: I prefer BASIC
COBOL: Just say no : )
PL/I : see COBOL
PASCAL: Fun, but a lot of work
Perl: Created dynamic replicating web pages
REBOL is just amazing. So much power in so little space! Reminds me of
with a readable syntax. If it had a good multidimensional database behind
it, I think it would rule the world.
Thanks for your patience with my ramblings. I enjoy all your posts and read
