Unix geek. Worked with a variety of different languages in the past.
Fluent in C and SML; increasingly use LISP to solve all kinds of
problems. (But there are still many things I have to learn about CL.)
Occasionally doing things in PERL and a few other languages.
Know enough about the Linux kernel to write a device driver.
Network programming and Xlib experience. Fascinated by the Lambda
Special areas of interest:
Being a physics student, I am very interested in building a machine
I can be productive with.
Discovered how to use the power of functional programming for
solving real problems some time ago. Though Unix is very reliable and
therefore not too bad to get work done, it's also often the cause
of nasty problems one would like not to have to deal with.
Just think of the usual Unix way of re-parsing valuable data that
have been flattened down to ASCII output by piping it into awk or
perl. Or think of those braindead command lines you have to type
when you want to do fancier things with find(1).
Areas prepared to work on:
Of course I'd prefer to work on topics I have experience with,
but since I'm generally very curious about things and like to get
new insights, I'm prepared to work on anything. I'd like to know
more about kernel internals.
Level of commitment:
Currently about 5 hours/week (weekends).
More in late summer/early autumn when I don't have any lectures
