Hi 4tH-ers! I've cleaned up the code a little, setting the dates properly and purging some old stuff from the Makefiles. It's code concerning 4thd, 4thg, 4thx and 4thc. Those were programs that did ONE SINGLE THING, either execution, decompilation, C-generation or compilation. They go back to

Hans, Have you looked over the specs for the recently announced Raspberry Pi 4? The high end option ($55 USD) has 4 GB of RAM. Has GigE and USB 3 ports and much improved compute performance. Add a hard drive or better yet a cheap SSD and its a nice development machine. Runs a Debian Linux

You know what? Mine neither! ;-) But software development is so abysmal nowadays (apart from a few descent colleagues, which I value. One hacks emulated mainframes and does COBOL, but doesn't shy down for PHP and SQL) that these insane development time estimates have to be countered by some old

Hi 4tH-ers! I've added the NAME() function to 4tH. That will convert a string to a label, e.g. PRINT _Hello, NAME(DUP("Hello")) Will print the same number twice (the underscore is not part of the label, just it's prefix). So - what can you do with it. Like an RPN calculator in Basic in page

"Don't judge a man until you walked in his shoes" ;-) I can't deny that at times I get to do cool things - however, after 35 years on the job I must say I'm looking forward to be retired, because then I get do do something really useful. Man, I can tell you stories...
