I have just uploaded my disk de-duplication software to github, so if you want to squash the contents of a backup disk by consolidating the duplicates, please try it. I have used it on Linux - if you are brave enough to use it on anything else, please let me know! It is a perl script, so it should work elsewhere.
I have been trying some of the problems at http://projecteuler.net/problems and my solutions to the first n are here. I also looked at rosettacode.org too and wrote the first problem in assembly language and forth, too. I wanted to write forth because of the fignition computer and needed to remind myself how to code in forth - it has been a long time. ARM assembly language is an on-going interest. I know that I can improve so I practise more.
I have just finished a short introduction to assembly programming on the ARM processor. Any feedback would be gratefully appreciated!
I showed some people that introduction and was asked How much faster is assembly language on the ARM.
A long time ago (around 2000-2001) I wrote a Perl interface to a C program for converting music on vinyl records to digital formats..
I have written Perl interfaces to some C disassemblers : X86::Disasm and X86::Udis86
Here is a simple tutorial showing how to call C code from Perl code.
I usually have Mr Perry and his BlackArkNuggets and On The Wire to listen to.
