TAs programming

To echo Ian Macdonald's voice, over the years I have learnt to read and even
debug code written in Basic, Fortran, Lisp, Pascal, C, C++, RTL/2, Ada,
Modula 2 & 3, Prolog and a few others. I can hack together a shell or Perl
script and I know the ins and outs of software engineering but I, too, would
NEVER call myself a programmer. The programming skills I have acquired are
'extras' and I do not consider them integral to my job function. Put in
your position, where you are expected to do it as part of your work, I
would very tactfully ask for a formal training course ... (never worked
for me though, I've always had to pick things up on the fly).

Best of luck, Simon North
