Hi Sidney,

Thks for the detailed description.
25 years ago at university I learned C, Assember, Fortran, Cobol, HPUX...
But later I was never a programmer. Today I'm using most time Shell Script
or Perl. I don't nedd more as a SysAdmin
I have no experience wit any version control system and it would be not so
easy create a C program for "Hello World" without help from Google.
