All you'll ever need is found in QBASIC
« on: July 26, 2005, 08:52:38 PM »
Whatever the latest programming language is of the day, all you ever need* is QBasic. If you can't do it in QBasic, then why bother!  :huh:

*A nod to all those people who gripe that PhotoshopCS2/8 doesn't run on their Windows95 systems.

I'm still hoping that PL/I makes a serious comeback.

Damnit, I took Fortran in my first year of college — in 1980! — and I still say punch cards are the way to go. That course convinced me that I wanted nothing to do with computers. We actually turned in our punch cards to be compiled and graded. I'll never forget Apu Nahasapeemapetilon's doctoral dissertation that Bart ruined!
