BASIC or VB ???

READ5,L,(NAME(J),J=1,20)
5 FORMAT(I2,20A1)
K=1
7 IF (NAME(K).EQ.AST) GO TO 8
K=K+1
GO TO 7
8 K=K-1
etc

This is early, badly written, FORTRAN
-no comments
-gotos instead of do loops
-lousy variable names (misleading even)
-nested implied do
-illogical data statement organization
-out of date sequence labels

This thread makes BSD/FreeBSD appear confusing, when its really one of the cleanest, most straightforward Os'es on the planet. :-)

Command line seems straightforward. Again I purchased OpenBSD 5.2
on the triple set CD's packaged with the ISBN seal and Open BSD
address in Canada on the cover. Where and or what is/are the Gnome
package to run Gimp 2.8? Where and or what are the Office Libre
packages that it's suppose to have to run Office Libre?

BES, forget BSD and get Ubuntu :-)

Are they ports that need to be downloaded? If so why do their own
CD's README files warn and discourage using the ports?

I don't want that, product scanners are more efficient and reliable.

OP demonstrates that Computers aren't idiot proof yet.

I wonder how many Yanks & Canucks wouldn't recognize the Mona Lisa.

Or just tie down your forearm and shoot up a nice load of down. Then none of this sh#t will matter.

I will try to help further. Apply the following patch:

20,21c20,22
< SONG         PAUSE IDENT(SING) OUTPUT('SING', ACAPPELLA.CHOIR,
< +            "(' " PAUSE "',100A1)") = '    '                :(RETURN)

> SONG        VOICE = CHOIR SING
>             PAUSE (IDENT(SING) PAUSE OUTPUT('VOICE', ACAPPELLA.CHOIR,
> +           "(' " PAUSE "',100A1)")) . CHOIR = '    ' PAUSE            :(RETURN)

You will need to apply the patch with the right option specification! But doing this will then enable you to change the output association to your HDCIC, which should handle either PCI or ATA disks. Change the text to include your desired partition/gpart data and directly flash the disk table.

To change the output specification, interface directly with the JCL in your hard disk controller as follows:

//FT06F001 DD DSN=HDCIC,VOL=SER=MYSAV1,UNIT=SATA,DISP=(,PASS),
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=512),LABEL(1,SL)

You do not need VB. Simply install SNOBOL4 from the ports. This code is for BSD or Linux. The Windows JCL interface is very hard to use.

JCL is still in use???

I find that hard to imagine.

Crock, Malemute very important question to me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell_Latitude

If you scroll down take a look under C-Family at model 810

Max RAM is listed at 512. Is this for each socket or combined?


Im taking a look and I was going to try to rewrite that in C++
compiled with Gnu Win ver Dev C++ to "possibly show why some
langauges are considered by college educators to not be proper
languages for computer science.
".

Crock i looked at the {b}system('PAUSE');[/b} reminds me of a hook? Definition now missing from here?

http://www.linuxsecurity.com/resource_files/documentation/hacking-dict.html

But hooks usually use pointers?

One of the most difficult problems for me just looking at that code
is determination of data types and enumeration for constants for switch()?

That is total RAM, period.
one 512 or two 256.

The Unix dd(1) command is - as is clear from its unique syntax - a direct link to the underlying sub-matrix JCL // DD. It is how the red pill is implemented.

Using it you can easily switch the matrix from Unix to Linux to Windows. You can change from a Pentium to a PDP-11 or even a Sigma 7. You just have to use the correct JCL. The syntax is obscure but I have given you what you need. You need a pre-epoch program to perform the sub-matrix flash. C had not been developed when all this was implemented. Most people use SNOBOL4 or ALGOL60.

The other option is to just get a bigger hard drive or use Windows. This is what we in the business call the "Blue Pill" option.

"Ed is the standard text editor."


Let's look at a typical novice's session with the mighty ed:


golem> ed


?
help
?
?
?
quit
?
exit
?
bye
?
hello?
?
eat flaming death
?
^C
?
^C
?
^D
?



Note the consistent user interface and error reportage. Ed is
generous enough to flag errors, yet prudent enough not to overwhelm
the novice with verbosity.

Help Desk: "Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?"
Caller: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
H: "What sort of trouble?"
C: "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."
H: "Went away?"
C: "They disappeared."
H: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
C: "Nothing."
H: "Nothing?"
C: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."
H: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"
C: "How do I tell?"
H: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"
C: "What's a sea-prompt?"
H: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?"
C: "There isn't any cursor, I told you, it won't accept anything I type."
H: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
C: "What's a monitor?"
H: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?"
C: "I don't know."
H: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"
C: "Yes, I think so."
H: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."
C: ".......Yes, it is."
H: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"
C: "No."
H: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
C: ".......Okay, here it is."
H: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."
C: "I can't reach."
H: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
C: "No."
H: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
C: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark."
H: "Dark?"
C: "Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."
H: "Well, turn on the office light then."
C: "I can't."
H: "No? Why not?"
C: "Because there's a power outage."
H: "A power... A power outage? Ah, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"
C: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."
H: "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."
C: "Really? Is it that bad?"
H: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."
C: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"
H: "Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer."
