As you may know if you know my site well or read rather a lot of
Nederlog (it happens), one of the things I like is programming.
This interest is absolutely
non-professional, that is: without a special education for it and
without wanting to make money with it, and is motivated mostly by
my interests in logic and in computers, and by my interests in
being able to do things that cannot be done readily on a computer
without some programming, and probably also by my interests in
mathematics, in the sense of playing with formulas.
This means that I have been
interested in programming languages few take an interest in, such
as - in particular - Assembly and Smalltalk, on
both of which I have spend some time and trouble, and that
especially on the last, and have written about these on my site,
also in Nederlog, and indeed have had (rather a lot of) material
for and about them on my site.
Recently, I have reviewed and
changed my position on
Smalltalk, as you can
learn under the links, if interested.
Since few will be, I only state
the summary here. My present
position on these is as follow: For
go Masm32; for
don't (unless you know it well already).
P.S. In particular, this
means that the stuff that was on my site that relates to RosAsm
and to Squeak either has been removed or will be removed, and
will not be continued. (There still is daily use of
Squeak-material on my site, so I may let it hang around a while,
but for me it is finished, over and done with.)
(*) This interest in playing
with formulas may be a stronger motive than it appears, I
realize: It's one reason to like computers, and probably a
sine qua non for being really interested in programming.
