,----[ Quote ]
| Even though the version name Java SE 6 Update 10 only indicates small bug
| fixes, Sun Microsystems has put Java's fat runtime environment on a strict

Looking at Perl

,----[ Quote ]
| This article will be taking an introductory look at one of the most flexible
| programming languages known by almost any Linux/Unix system. Perl (Practical
| Extraction & Reporting Language) is an extremely powerful programming
| language that can be used for just about anything and runs on just about
| every operating system. Perl has the ability to interact with web page
| forms, databases, end users, files, network sockets, & more. Perl was
| created out of the frustrations faced by a system administrator named Larry
| Wall. Perl has been called the swiss army chainsaw of programming languages
| and for good reason. With only a few lines of code, perl can move mountains
| of data.

Java is still the world's victor. Microsoft just uses Microsoft-commissioned
lies from IDC, which Novell helps it spread further in its press releases.
It's like watching Mussolini and that other guy deceive the world.

Java Sound & Music Software for Linux, Part 3

,----[ Quote ]
| The Java Sound API contains strong support for MIDI, but I was surprised to
| find no full-size MIDI sequencers written for Java. Happily, JavaSound's MIDI
| capabilities are well-exploited by a variety of applications.

Java Sound & Music Software for Linux, Part 2

,----[ Quote ]
| I'll close this section and this part of my survey with a brief presentation
| of Sonogram, a neat program for analyzing and viewing audio signals in
| various analysis methods and display formats. I've run out of space, but the
| screenshot in Figure 11 should give you an idea of Sonogram's capabilities.
| It's a very cool program, useful and interesting for more than its eye-candy,
| thanks to its wide variety of signal analysis algorithms.
