Hi Guys

I have had a lot of help over tha last couple of weeks but not introduced myself....

I am not quite as old as some but do have two children under ten, my first venture into programming was Cobol so I'll let you decide how old I am.

This is a friendly and valuable resource to have and I appreciate it being here, I will endevour to help as well as receive help wherever I can. There is always some snagging when working on projects which usually results in no sleep:)

Thanks again

Paul

to the tune of let it be

Write In C

When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
"Write in C, Write in C."

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
LOGO's dead and buried,
Write in C, Write in C.

If you've just spent nearly 30 hours
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Write in C, Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
Pascal won't quite cut it.
Write in C, Write in C.

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers:
"Write in C, Write in C."

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
For science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C, Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
Only wimps use BASIC.
Write in C, Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
Don't even mention COBOL.
Write in C, Write in C.

Welcome uktag! :)
Cobol? Aren't you guys in huge demand nowadays? Or maybe I'm thinking of another old language typically used by finance institutions..
