Hi ElMaestro

» It reminds me of the good old days when Delphi was a thing. […]

Oh dear, already the pointers in Pascal drove me nuts. BTW, Delphi – what a name! Only topped by a company marketing databases called Oracle. What about “I will consult the Delphic oracle!”
I still have Sobell’s “A practical guide to UNIX System V” in my bookshelf. 700 completely incomprehensible pages. You have to be a nerd with horn-rimmed glasses living from pizza, burgers, and Red Bull to value vi or EMACS.* Given, powerful stuff but for an average person like attempting to climb the K2 in shorts and sneakers.
