From Rosetta Code

Holy crap! Is there any language you don't know of?

Er...That question doesn't make much sense, does it? Anyway...

He doesn't know Tcl it seems, but then I'm biased... –Donal Fellows 10:54, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
I used Tcl very briefly in 1994. I did not care for it. Maybe I did not get to know it well enough. ---EdK 11:33, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, there's quite a few examples here. (In fact, as of now there are only three that don't have Tcl solutions, of which it is inappropriate in two cases; I've been busy over the past year.) –Donal Fellows 12:05, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 04:58, 5 April 2010 (UTC)


Is 6800 assembly distinct from 6802? --Michael Mol 15:39, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

It has been several decades, but I remember needing to relearn some stuff when I moved from 6800 to 6502. Of course not as much as I had to relearn when moving from 6502 to 8080.

After some research I see the confusion. Quoting from Wikipedia:

At MOS, they quickly designed the 6501, a completely new processor that was pin-compatible with the 6800. This allowed it to be plugged into motherboards designed for the Motorola processor, although its instruction set was different. Motorola sued immediately, and MOS agreed to stop producing the 6501 and went back to the drawing board. The result was the "lawsuit-compatible" 6502, which was by design unusable in a 6800 motherboard but otherwise identical to the 6501. Motorola had no objection. MOS Technology 6502

So my memory is correct the instructions sets are different.User:EdK

Language and library organization

(Moved to Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Semantic MediaWiki/Semantics (--Michael Mol 18:05, 29 August 2010 (UTC)))


Your language list included "Yoric", but the language's actual name is "Yorick". I corrected it in your listing so that I could correct the relevant categories. -- Sekoia 22:38, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Clipper / Harbour / XBase

Do you have any objection to Clipper and Harbour being stored under an XBase heading in task solutions? It would seem to me better than duplicating code under separate Clipper and Harbour headings. Axtens (talk) 13:00, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
