Why SDL Perl Matters

,----[ Quote ]
| I read a book proposal years ago on the 
| subject of teaching kids to program with C++. 
| "After a week," it said, "children will know 
| enough to create their own simple text games 
| and animations."
| I was perhaps six years old when I saw my 
| first minicomputer. I flipped open the first 
| page of the manual and typed in the lines 
| verbatimâexcept I left off the line numbers, 
| likely thinking that they were merely a 
| convenience for readers. Perhaps I've had good 
| taste from the beginning.
| My typing skills were, as you might expect, 
| abysmal. Even so, I had feedback from the 
| computer within fifteen minutes or less. If 
| I'd had to spend a week learning things to 
| move characters around on the screen, I'd have 
| given up.

Groovy-Eclipse 2.0 released - A smoother development cycle

,----[ Quote ]
| The Groovy-Eclipse developers have
| delivered version 2.0 of the plugin for
| developers who want to work with Groovy and
| Java in the Eclipse IDE. The new version is
| the culmination of work which began in May
| 2009 to create a more integrated,
| incremental compilation process. This has
| resulted in what the developers call an
| "almost completely rewritten" plugin.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
