This is a blog about programming – in all languages. I have been programming in some fashion since 1976, in BASIC, C, FORTRAN, Pascal, C++, Korn Shell, Assembly (IBM 360 and 6502), FORTH, LISP, Perl, Ruby…

Topics include methods, concepts, new languages, trials and tribulations, and my learning as I go. Languages covered will vary widely but will likely initially focus on iTcl, Eiffel, LISP, and Scala.

Itcl is an object-oriented version of Tcl. Object-orientation will be a common theme – Eiffel and Scala are both also object-oriented.

However, functional languages are also of interest; LISP and Scala are both functional languages (Scala has both object-orientated and functional capabilities).

Any and all programming topics are of interest – and hope you’ll come along for the ride.
