Programmers are so yesterday.... and like Sir Paul sang, "I believe in yesterday." That's where all the fun of understanding how to build programs came from, but in order to make the kind of realistic progress, needed to evolve programs forward, the programmer had to give way to the developer. Now programs are made on the backs of what has gone before, rather than from the ground up. It is a good thing for progress, but to me it just isn't what real programming was all about.
About five years ago, I visited a popular C Forum and asked for help making a keyboard program, much like the INKEY$ stuff I post here. Even back then the response were to direct me to use specific libraries, rather than how to code it. I eventually hammered out the code, but it took a lot of time to convince anyone there why I didn't want to use a library to accomplish it.
Oh well, if I ever get that time machine I working on together, I'll have to give all of us a ride back to the 1970's, and we can all work together to put out the very first Pong program and get rich!
