A case against syntax highlighting

Anonymous
Sun 5-Jun-2011 01:13
Interesting article, on a subject I've also given some thought myself. Haven't read all of the comments, so forgive me if it was already said, but latest advances in semantic highlighting are a valuable aid, especially when dealing with dynamic languages. I've used a semantic highlighter that could catch typos that resulted in undeclared globals that would result in runtime errors later on.

OTOH, one striking memory I have is the first time I came across syntax highlighting: it was when I first saw C code, in Borland's Turbo C environment for MS-DOS. After years programming in BASIC, dBase and Clipper without any special features from editors, my reaction was: "man, the syntax in C is so weird that they need to paint the code!"

Another great example of human "musician playing at effect rate" would be the tapping sequence of Eddie Van Halen's eruption. He plays a monophonic sequence so fast that you can clearly devise the chords (and with the distorted guitar sound it actually sounds quite a bit like a chiptune. :)

This almost sounds like a IDM track by Aphex Twin. And damn, only 32 Bytes ram? Awesome!

I am working on a demo of my own based on the ATtiny2313. I almost stopped when i realized that it only goes to 16 MHz. Until I saw you using the ATtiny15 -- WTF?!!?! Okay.. Now I am inspired! :)

Any chance you'd post annotated schematics?

Awesome. If anyone wanted to complain about using a modern chip, I'd say the fact that you are running it at merely 1.6Mhz without any support chips at all should quell any disgruntlement. Very cool.

Totally amazing. You should port it to Android/iPhone. Don't know how much memory you need, but newer devices have a lot available. Alternatively, publish the source ;)

However for the life of me I can't solve
http://www.linusakesson.net/games/autosokoban/?v=1&seed=722222541&level=6

Bug, or am I just not doing it right?

It's possible. I solved it in 17 moves. A lot of manipulation, however.

Do you think you could upload a recording of this? I think it would make a great ringtone for my cell phone.

Once again congratulations from the bottom of my heart !

Great ! I love the resulting sound, it really sounds exactly like the NES (requesting Kirby's Dreamland, the music is great).
I wrote a little article about the chipophone on a french retro gaming community : http://www.gamopat.com/article-le-chipophone-77868345.html
Ducktales, Zelda and Metroid (part 2) are awesome !

Thanks a lot.

OH. MY. GOD.
My Head already starts exploding and overheating when just THINKING about GOL. If I would have to program it... oh my god.
You didn't just program/code it, you f*cking did it in BRAINFUCK!!
This _literally_ fucks my brain!
I love you.
I just hope to become a good C++ Coder and maybe create some demos or sth like that... But I don't think I will ever achieve what you achieved.
You are a larger-than-life. Keep up the good work!
