I'm running KDE on SuSE 7.3, so I chose Kate. I got the tcl syntax
file from kate.sourceforge.net . I can run a terminal right on the
bottom of the editor window - nice!
My experience with Linux was slim until last May. After 6 years
working with NT I finally got my MCSE -- and promptly lost interest in
supporting MS products altogether! Umm, rather than beating myself for
wasting all that money, I'm having lots of fun with GNU/Linux and Open
Source. Still brainwashed on the cert thing, I'm halfway through the
Sair GNU/Linux LCA program. I'd like to contribute more than just $$
(buying distros and apps), so learning programming is on my list of
"want tos". Eventually, I'd like to help debug and provide patches for
the free software I use.
I have exprerience with Windows scripting (self taught) -- DOS batch,
Winbatch, NT Shell scripting, VBS -- used for system administration and
software distribution in prior employments.
I have five Perl books, but nothing to show for it. Picked Perl for
it's cross-platform and free-ness, but can't seem to grok what I need
to do anything. I was glancing at Python for the same reasons (x-plat.
and free) when this class announcement came by. TCL looks neat, so I'm
going for it. I like anything that has "tool" in it's name ;-)
And, I guess that means I can't just lurk around here anymore.
