About


Periodically the Danish National Archives has a review of the standards for digital records. I wrote them in 2011 suggesting for certain governmental documents the use of .eps graphics format and TeX/LaTeX typesetting.

Two years later I wrote an outline for a book on spreadsheets, RDBMSs, statistics, and networking, as a one semester course for Danish business school students.

I like the writing style of Prof. Bjarne Stroustrup, e.g., PPP, based on a course he designed for engineering freshmen.[1]

I wrote to Minister Søren Pind (V) on 3 May 2017 regarding a copyright matter related to software utilised at CERN, a week later the ministry website announced a planned business forum, involving various European scientific institutes.

That event directed by René Michelsen took place at the Tivoli Congress Center, 26-28 February 2018, and owing to R. Michelsen's liking for astronomy, I've added the Eris Post to this log.

In March of 2018 Asst. Prof. Oleg Evgenievich Kiselyov at Tohoku University wrote me they have begun teaching Haskell to a very small group of first-year undergraduates (some are with no programming experience), where they seem to pick it up.[2]

This (Wrox) book has a chapter on GNU/Linux terminals, also a chapter omitted in subsequent editions, on Tcl.

If one wants to utilise C with Tcl here is an introductory volume.

This (Que Publishing) book might be interesting, but I have not yet looked it over.

"You can teach a business analyst FTP and fundamental UNIX commands: ls -l, rm -i, head, tail, cat, cp, mv, sort, grep, uniq .c, and the pipe and redirect operators (|, >)."

The 9pvfs and Awk Posts, respectively, use FTP, and the Un*x commands.

This Internet log has several entries on functional programming. In wadler87 (above) is written that professor's experience in teaching what might be considered precursors of the Haskell language and a Lisp dialect. In my opinion introducing Haskell might be pursued by first learning functional programming in shells, e.g., the log Posts on es (influenced by Scheme, and Tcl) and xs.

In 9pvfs I've added some 'posixutils' from builds of watcom-1.9.0 and -2.0.

I might take a look HTk, whether a Windows-native Tk could be utilised to render GUI frontends to a WSL installed ghc's generated code; the HTk software was written circa Tcl/Tk 8.4 so might be upgraded to 8.5.19 or 8.6.7.
