whitequarkunrelated; I had to bribe an official recently. the amount he asked for was $15 or, quote, two packs of A4 paper, unquote. kinda gives you an impression of the state of healthcare here.01:33
DocScrutinizer05fun andalso orelse isbullshit05:04
DocScrutinizer05dation05:05
wpwrakwhat dialect is "dation" from ?05:06
wpwrakbtw, don't you find it cute that people still uphold the family-friendly values of COBOL ? make nice grammatically correct sentences when talking to your computer :)05:07
wpwrakQ: what's the object-oriented version of COBOL ?05:08
wpwraks/?/called ?/05:08
wpwrakA: ADD ONE TO COBOL, GIVING COBOL.05:08
wpwrak(of course, this statement should start in the correct column of the punch card)05:09
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: meh, another language which originated as a byproduct of a PL/compilers course at some university05:28
whitequarkthey're all alike in this weirdness05:29
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: dation? pearl iirc05:44
DocScrutinizer05SDVLS(2); PROBLEM; SPC TERMINAL DATION INOUT ALPHIC DIM(,)05:47
DocScrutinizer05X-P05:47
DocScrutinizer05http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/PEARL05:47
DocScrutinizer05>>PEARL wird unter anderem verwendet in der Programmierung von Prozessrechnern bei Energieversorgern,...<< and that's exactly where I ran into it05:49
DocScrutinizer05felt like throwing up05:50
DocScrutinizer05honestly, this belongs locked in the poison locker: >> SPC TERMINAL DATION INOUT ALPHIC DIM(,) TFU MAX FORWARD CONTROL (ALL); <<05:51
wpwrakoh dear. forgot about that critter.06:18
wpwraksounds like the language of choice for talking to your T-1000 series Terminator. well, if you're skynet ;-)06:21
