What are you doing with data?

Good question. Data is all around, but we often either ignore it, or don't get the full use out of it (such as coming up with conclusions, based on its attributes).

What issues do you face while working with data?

Its format, more than anything else. It can be pure ASCII (or EBCDIC) text, stored as machine integers (big- or little-endian), floating point, bcd, or even something else.

What would you like to learn to do?

No answer yet

What tools do you use?

No special tools -- could be a text-handling language like AWK, or a special library (e.g., Regular Expression) of a particular programming language.


Hi, folks. I've lived in the North Texas area all my life (except for the occasional foray elsewhere). I've been in the software development business since the early 1980's.
