From Rosetta Code

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 04:54, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Marking incorrect

Hi Robintony, I have marked two of your entries incorrect today. Please don't take it as an attack of any kind, I am just trying to keep the RC quality up for everyone and indeed would like to thank you for your contributions so far. --Paddy3118 10:36, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. --Paddy3118 15:39, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

couple of omissions

Hi Robintony:

Your PL/I code for Bitmap/Bresenham's line algorithm has a reference to COLOR but no definition.

Also, it has a PUT LIST but no plot output.

Please feel free to delete the above comments if you address these items or you feel they are inappropriate or unwarrented.

As an aside, I always look to see if there's a PL/I example whenever I tackle a new task, as (in my opinion), PL/I is the closest thing to REXX (as REXX is heavily based on PL/I syntax), and also, PL/I code is very readable. -- Gerard Schildberger 15:50, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
