My long-after impression is that Snobol lacked the flexibility I wanted/expected.
... but it is also very hard to follow ...
And there was also Lisp... Never understood it either.
Sorry for interrupting the conversation
to learn C/C++ should you use a book that has the Arduino structure or use a Standard Programming language book?
Went to BN and found C++ for dummies and considered buying it until i heard westfw on the subject. I have seen books on the internet that are specifically on the subject of programming Arduino's. The book is Beginning Arduino Programming, offered from BN.com. Does it show much promise or should i pick another.
