7 lines of code, 3 minutes: Implement a programming language

The lambda calculus actually lives at the core of all the major functional languages--Haskell, Scheme and ML--but it also lives inside JavaScript, Python and Ruby.

Clicking on arrows just to the right of the name of an article reveals its subarticles. If you want to hide the subarticles again, then you should click to the right of them rather than clicking on the name of one of the subarticles themselves, since otherwise you will follow a link to that subarticle.

It's not that orbitals invalidated the stick-and-ball models of chemistry at all. If anything orbitals explained to us why the bonds are arranged as they are in stick-and-ball models. Prior to quantum theory, we only knew the geometry and patterns of those bonds by experiment. Prior to quantum theory, chemistry had no general theory to explain why atomic bonds are shaped as experiment revealed them to be. Home » Hover - domain name and email management made simple.

on Windows FAQ — Python v2.7.2 documentation

This is not necessarily a straightforward question. If you are already familiar with running programs from the Windows command line then everything will seem obvious; otherwise, you might need a little more guidance. Unless you use some sort of integrated development environment, you will end up typing Windows commands into what is variously referred to as a “DOS window” or “Command prompt window”. Usually you can create such a window from your Start menu; under Windows 7 the menu selection is .
