It came from... the HOLD SPACE!
(Alien horrors from the dawn of Unix)
Length: 70 minutes
How did we get anything done before the invention of Perl, Python, and
those other guys? Answer: It wasn't always easy. In this talk, I
discuss the tools and systems for building Unix utilities from 1975
until about 1990, including
and other ancient mysteries.
I gave this talk to the Philadelphia area Linux User Group
(PLUG) on 7 December, 2011. Thanks to PLUG for inviting me, and
to Ricardo Signes for help with the title of the talk.
