It's not about mere basic arithmetic, it's about whether or not symbolic computation is possible. The litmus test is whether or not you can write a simulation of a universal Turing Machine within the computer language.

Oh, in that case, HTML5 +CSS3 qualifies. The more you know.

Despite that fact, no one in their right mind would describe the combination that way. I'd find better criteria, if I were you.

we can get pedantic about the difference between "coding" and "programming" languages

No, you can't. There is no formal distinction. There isn't even a commonly understood / agreed upon informal distinction!

Pretending that such a distinction exists is just another silly way for the otherwise unskilled to make themselves feel superior to their peers.

Yes, you're right.

The fact that you think not knowing CSS will make a programmer limited showcases that your programming experience is limited to front-end development.

It's clear that he thinks that anyone who thinks that "not knowing CSS will make a programmer limited" somehow indicates that that person's "programming experience is limited to front-end development"

It's far more irrational than I originally thought!

One is (obviously) not an indicator of the other. You'd think will all the self-proclaimed "rationalists" on Slashdot that this sort of nonsense wouldn't be so prevalent.

See, old stuff that *they* like is important. Working on that stuff is a great idea.

Working on old stuff that they don't care about is clearly a waste of time.

Anyhow, here's a start for you: GCC PRC-Tools Which is likely what you want. Ron's Obsolete Palm OS Computing Information Page has a working link to HotPaw, which is better than nothing.

You'll also want to take advantage of the Wayback Machine to see what's behind all the dead links you're surely running in to.

Surprise your boss. Get to work on time.

Working...
