Programming has always been one of my passions. I first got in touch
with coding during my last school years in the early 80's doing
small games and utilities written in Basic either on the
at school or on my
Sinclair ZX 81
at home. During my
days I had the pleasure to toy around with
as well as BS2000 Assembler and
Turbo Pascal on a DOS PC.
At my first assignment I got in touch with
Xerox Star Systems.
The GlobalView desktop running on these machines is mostly written in
More interesting however was the Xerox
environment available for this hardware. Lisp is by
the way is one of the oldest high level
programming languages and often used in AI-systems.
The Unix workstation boom in the late 80's brought me to
computers. This is were I started to code in C and C++. My first
programs on these machines were based on the sunview graphic libs,
however since this environment was dropped by SUN I switched to X11
(release 3 if I remember correctly).
Working on SUNs, it seems quite natural that I was curious about
when it first came out. Daily work in unix environments almost automatically
brings you script programming. In my case usually
scripts on the low end resp.
on the high end.
Not to forget my
- shipped with a built in
interpreter - a reliable companion and fun to use.
Below are links to some of my hacks that I thought you
might find useful/interesting.
