My Interest are chess,bridge,music and oriental food. I joined the site because I test and compile the opening books for Winboard compatible chess engine programmes. I have never programmed the middle part which makes them work or the board representation. In my job I am qualified to teach Oracle and Ingres SQL, and I want to learn a programming language similar to SQL, Basic, and the usage of if and and statements as used in spreadsheets. The language had to be easy to read so I picked Pascal, and her i am.
