Forwarding Address: OS X

Saturday, February 09, 2002

This blog seems to be a mixture of new posts and discussion. (Cory: please tell these folks how to automatically use QuickTopic like you do on Boing**2.) If you are new both to OSX and programming, you should strongly consider learning Perl, which comes as part of OSX.

OK, OK, I'm a bit prejudiced: I am a long-time Perl enthusiast and wrote Perl For Dummies. But Perl is the easiest-to-learn language for what the vast majority of users want to do, namely to easily work with the contents of files and to easily do Internetish things. It is easier to pick up than AppleScript or, god forbid, LISP.
