Programming Textfiles

Anything having to do with the programming of computers, or how to approach

programming computers, and not covered by other sections, is stuck here. That

means you might find a lot of similar information in the <A HREF="/apple">Apple

</A> section, or even in the <A HREF="computer">computer</A> section. A good

portion of these files might seen out of date or irrelevant, but in fact show

the initial approaches to programming concepts (like cryptography, artifical

intelligence, and security) that apply very strongly to this day.
