SpeedScript is a word processor originally printed as a type-in machine language listing in 1984-85 issues of Compute! and Compute!'s Gazette magazines. Approximately 5 KB in length, it provided many of the same features as commercial word processing packages of the early 8-bit era, such as PaperClip and Bank Street Writer. Versions were published for the Apple II, Commodore 64 and 128, Atari 8-bit family, VIC-20, and for MS-DOS. Versions In April 1983 Compute! published Scriptor, a word processor written by staff writer Charles Brannon in BASIC and assembly language, as a type-in program for the Atari 8-bit family. In January 1984 version 1.0 of his new word processor SpeedScript appeared in Compute!'s Gazette for the Commodore 64 and VIC-20. 1.1 appeared in Compute!'s Second Book of Commodore 64, 2.0 on Gazette Disk in May 1984, and 3.0 in Compute! in March and April 1985.

Ten Years of Erlang

For my ten years in the Erlang community, I decided to cover a few topics such as hype phases and how this related to Erlang, the ladder of ideas within the language and how that can impact adoption, what changed in my decade there, and what I think Erlang still has to bring to the programming community at large.

Jak správně posílat maily z PHP

„To je přece jasný, ne? Funkcí mail(). Takový blbý dotazy. Na to přece není potřeba psát celý článek.“ No... ne tak docela. Funkce mail() je sice vstupním bodem do procesu doručování, ale k tomu, aby byl mail doručitelný a čitelný druhou stranou, je většinou potřeba ještě pár kroků navíc. Jakožto administrátor virtuálního hostingu vržu zuby pokaždé, když mi někdo na server strčí webík posílající maily, ale už neřeší žádnou sanitizaci a konformitu. V lepším případě mail nedojde, v horším pak může být celý server označen jako původce spamu. Takže jak to dělat lépe a radostněji?
