Coding "Joy of the Day" (JotD)
 
Working on my CT Character Generator while learning more Ruby and OOP. Figured out how to set the default Career based on Soc. Low is "Other", high is "Noble", and in the middle is Citizen.

Now, of course, to make the modules with those careers...

What's your Coding JotD?

Pawing through the GURPS JTAS discussion articles, scraping off most URLs and dead links, re-linking forward and backward navigation, indexing the topics, and making it generally a bit more suitable for a CD-ROM for Marc.

Perl rocks at this sort of activity.

Nice! Perl is great for that sort of task. If it didn't make me physically naseaus coding in it I'd probably still be there. Or at least better than I am now. :)

Well, they say Ruby is a dialect of Perl.

I've started learning Perl6. You wouldn't find it nauseating. Much more Rubylike. References, sigils, arrays of arrays, strong typing, methods instead of functions, OO, and more are like Ruby, and unlike Perl 5.

Not a coder, but it made my day to know this work is happening :D

Pretty much every day: adding a chunk of code to my next T5 iOS app and getting a warm fuzzy feeling after running it in the simulator and seeing the new functionality.

Unfortunately, this is often cancelled out by the horrible results generated by the buggy T5 design, so I usually have to modify the T5.09 rules and post what I did to the T5.09 Errata thread.

:(

I don't remember asking: Swift 2?

Everything I've written so far has been in Xojo (nee RealBasic, RealStudio).

Coding "Joy of the Day" (JotD)
 
A few major ones over the years (I`m not smart, but persistant)

Becoming proficient with Java (my favourite)

Reading (text) from Travellermap.com .sec files & returning Jump-9 destination lists from any hex, sector boundaries notwithstanding. (Location 0101 has destinations in 4 different Sector files).

Creating hexes of any size for printing.

Creating web pages and indices of links to other pages.

XML for use in creating tables (aligned columns) from .csv files and putting in .html files

Creating small Graphics with up to 20 lines of short text (justifiable)

Receiving alien words from tables in Alien Modules with one click at will.

T5 world generation

T5 Star System Maps (UWPs included) basic but works.

Double clicking in a list of possible destinations to jump position and automatically change display and highlight relevant hex with TAS Travel Advisory

Overlaying .gif files and using transparency.

Some files in File Library recently uploaded.

Learning basics of CSS to `style` output.

Automating Beltstrike (just not pretty, but sort of works)

and.................................(sorry, it`s late here).

Traveller gave me reason to learn programming (after 25+ years, you get an epiphany or 10)

Heaven & Earth gave me so much inspiration (but no source, sadly. I was too late for that)

More like a cross between perl and smalltalk.

I miss smalltalk.
