Writing Porfolio

Passed!

So, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. The last big worry is the Spring schedule, and I’m not sure when that comes out…

I had all sorts of frustrations with my Programming Language class today. I went to school an hour early to use one of the Windows labs because we have to turn in Windows executables which I think is a really stupid requirement. Providing a windows executable has absolutely nothing to do with my ability to code in the specified languages.

Anyway, the COBOL compiler worked fine, after I spent half an hour figuring out how to use it. The FORTRAN compiler didn’t work on my source file, and the ADA compiler refused to work at all. I spent an hour futzing with it with no results. This is precisely why I don’t use windows.

I have perfectly valid source code that compiles and executes beautifully on Linux, yet I’m supposed to waste hours of my life with lab computers that aren’t maintained correctly? Ridiculous.
