about me


If you are technical you might wonder where the C code is, given the name of this site. Non-techies may just be wondering why the name of the site. I (Daniel Dickinson) chose the name because C is the first ‘real’ programming language I learned. I don’t count assembler, which is too low level to really be a language, nor BASIC which was a training language. While one could write useful programs with BASIC, the same can be said of POSIX shell scripting, but POSIX shell is not built for the purpose of writing standalone applications or utilities, and thus I do not include either as a ‘real’ language.
