First of the year

First outing of the year:

01:30 on 1st January, to let hotel guests back into their room. They're embarrassed about calling me out as ever. "If I wasn't happy being on call, I wouldn't do the job" says I.

First program of the year:

perl -n -a -e '$ss+=$F[1];END{print "$ss\n"}' mh

Summing the numbers in the second field of a space delimited file. Taking a Wiltshire Council report that Lisa had sent me concerning land available for housing development in Melksham over the next 15 years, and adding up the potential total number of new homes. The total was 4979. I doubt they will all be built, as the anticipated demand is only for around 2000. See [here] and the Melksham appendix.

There remains nothing like awk or Perl for a quick one-liner like this!

First course of the year:

Learning to Program in Tcl, starts on Tuesday, 3rd January. See [here]. The course runs 4 times this year, spread throughout the year. We've got C, C++, PHP and Ruby too in the next few weeks, with Python, Perl and Lua (the subjects that we ran courses on in December) following thereafter. Complete public course listing [here]
