Howdy World! A Funny Unix/Linux Programming Joke

Hey there and happy Saturday! One more work week down and an indeterminable amount left until you either shuffle off this mortal coil or figure out some other way to beat the game ;)

I found this funny piece of semi-nostalgic Linux/Unix programming humour while I was cruising the Internet looking for new and better ways to make it appear as though my department's budget is actually justified :) If you dig it, there are links to other pages on the Ariel Computing Site that contain even more jokes that are at least as funny as this one. I didn't get to read them all, but it's got a pretty good selection of humour to choose from.

Here's hoping you're laughing and keeping your spirits high. There will be plenty of time to unleash pent-up frustrations and slowly-simmering violent outbursts on Monday ;)

Cheers,

High School/Jr.High



10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD"
20 END


First year in College



program Hello(input, output)
begin
writeln('Hello World')
end.


Senior year in College



(defun hello
(print
(cons 'Hello (list 'World))))


New professional



#include <stdio.h>
void main(void)
{
char *message[] = {"Hello ", "World"};
int i;

for(i = 0; i < 2; ++i)
printf("%s", message[i]);
printf("\n");
