Adventures in Linux Programming
by Rildo Pragana
I am discussing here some points that may be of interest to beginners in
Tcl/tk. Please check this guide .
If you write in portuguese (BTW, I'm brazilian), perhaps you
find useful my brazil.tar.gz file. Put
it in your
Some hardware projects
If you want to do something with hardware, specially microcontrollers, I would recommand you Microchip's PIC series. They are small things but very powerfull. I have submitted some projects of mine to Picpoint.
When I made the migration from Msdos to Linux, I used to work with wordstar-like text editors, so I found a very natural replacement with joe. Later, I discovered VIM (Vi IMproved), a really terrific text editor for all our programming tasks. I plan to write some notes about it later, but don't hold your breath! Find by yourself why I have dismissed Amaya, as my html editor.
Later I have discovered wpp (see links), a preprocessor for html files with macro capability. Combined with Vim this makes a very productive environment for maintaining a web site with several similar pages like this one.
I try to make this site compliant with html-4.0 and CSS, using the W3C validation services. This is impossible when writing with Frontpage(TM), Communicator(TM) and other commercial html editors. (try to validate your site if you don't trust me) If you don't feel comfortable with text editors like Vim, I suggest you try Amaya. It generates good html-4.0 code and it's fully visual and structured.
