The author of this tutorial began programming in 1961 using FORTRAN
on an IBM 1620. Since then most of his career has been involved
with designing digital logic for satellite application. In 1983,
being somewhat burned out with logic design, he began a study of
some of the more modern programming languages and has since made
a complete career shift to software development. After learning
Pascal, C was studied, followed by Modula-2 and Ada. Rather than
simply learning the syntax of each new language, modern methods of
software engineering were studied and applied to effectively
utilize the languages. He is currently employed by a large
research and development laboratory where he continues to study,
teach, and apply the newer programming languages.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
