Writing BSD code over beer

It may not be true that most BSD code was written over beer....as good
as the BSD (FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD) stuff is, I doubt that those
graduate students and faculty who were the pioneers of and/or for BSD,
and hence for the internet, had any champagne.....if it was anything,
it was probably beer rather than anything expensive....


While BSD is the Champagne or the rarest of the scotches....I doubt
that the graduate students and faculty who love BSD had anything but
water.....

[OFF-TOPIC] It is true that is impossible write in binary code, the lowest level of programming that you can write is in hex code?
I intend to write in lowest level of computer programming as a hobby. It is true that is impossible write in binary code, the lowest level of programming that you can write is in hex code? What is the lowest level of programming computers that you can write ? Is binary code? Is hex code? Is another machine code? Honestly do not know if it is true that there is another machine code beyond the binary and hex code. Is Assembly?

How to write code to cancel all submitted code
Is there a command that can be given - by writing it programmatically - to stop all submitted code? I think of a similar functionality as when you click on the break button in the graphical user interface, followed by 'Cancel submitted Statements' from the Application toolbar. The use of this is typically when you have an if-then-else decision tree and if one of the conditions is true, you may want to cancel the whole program, because you have just come to a condition that should not exist because it can cause a lot of trouble for the rest of the processing of the program. - Anaconda...

To Code or Not to Code?
Just read a paper with the very interesting title, "To code or not to code: lossy source-channel communication revisited", Gastpar et al, IEEE Trans Information Theory, May 2003, p 1147. It's available for free here... http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/~gastpar/01197846.pdf As far as I can tell, the idea is that although source and channel coding can be separated without loss of optimality (Shannon) it can be overly complex, and less complex systems can get close to this opimality by combining source and channel coding, or at least matching them in some way. This sounds like a pret...

How can I write highly optimized C code for reading and writing?
I am writing an I/O utility in C that accepts requests over a socket connection and persists the data that can be read by other processes. There could be data coming from hundreds of client programs simultaneously and my program has to accept and persist these data as fast as possible. I am planning to use a memory mapped file for this purpose. But do you know any other scheme which will provide a faster processing speed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Coding to the ][, Coding to the ///?
Now that I've gotten some very limited /// stuff running (thanks to MESS)...I've been thinking of trying to code to the ///. Fortunately, getting software to the emulated /// is a snap. I'd just use the same strategy as I use for the ][, using the emulated ][+ from ApplePC. Save to a ProDOS disk, boot on the ///. The questions become a bit more complex here. 1. I assume the 40x24 text mode works similarly to the ][. Running on MESS, part of the text screen would periodically get "colorized", and I suspect the color memory is stored on text page 2.
