RAPTOR Loop Logic

RAPTOR is a flowchart interpreter, or flowchart-based programming environment by Terry Wilson, Martin C Carlisle, Jeff Humphries, and Jason Moore from the United States Air Force Academy (used there, the United States Military Academy, and a number of other educational institutions to teach an introductory course to computer programming concepts).

How good or bad the system is I’ll leave to you to decide.  One thing that annoys me (greatly) about the program is the loop logic construct — it’s backwards from any computer language I’ve ever seen, and while Dr Carlisle feels that it’s implemented in a fashion that makes it easiest for non-computer people to understand… many disagree.

The attached registry files will allow you to flip the logic (or flip it back to default).

Back to school….

Today is the first day of Fall term at Pensacola State College, and the first time I’ve been back at shool (well other than online learning) in a very long time.

It’s been an f’ing nightmare to jump through all the hoops to make this happen — Pensacola State College seems to be one of the most disorganized entities I’ve even encountered, but hopefully before the end of this quarter all my credits from the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Florida will be fully posted and I’ll know what I need to take to get a Computer Science degree.

This quarter I’m taking 15 hours of classes required as prerequisites as well as required classes I know I shouldn’t have credit for.

If things work out like I hope, I should be finished by the end of Summer 2014 (or the end of the current school year).
