I'm currently a Java programmer. I am doing high-performance server work, Swing client work, and game design. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms. I've worked seriously in the past with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

I like this one a lot - and as a bonus, it is already installed in CentOS.

comment Can you do Regular Expressions in Excel without VBScript?
Thanks for the confirmation. I found that library, but we were hoping to have something that didn't require us to distribute a library, too.

comment How do I create a tar file in alphabetical order?
Mostly, it's because I want to know how close the tar operation is to being completed. When the files are being loaded in random order, there's no way to tell with the -v flag.

comment How do I create a tar file in alphabetical order?
I have way too many files (20,000+) to specify them all on the command line.
