Well, except that almost everything we use in graphics programming comes from academic research, as well as programming languages and computers in general. Of course you aren't forced to use this work, but without a computer, I wonder how you could post in this forum?
After 6 years of unemployment period, with no academic education, I have no understanding for academics.
I think somehow, that Ada was somewhat different from current academics. If by nothing else than knowledge about wide array of things. So this sorts of that computer problem.
I created my own language. This sorts the language problem.
And graphic research? If nothing would be created by academics, people that would need to do graphic programming would develop it themselves.
Yes parallel programing is fine, but (most) academics sucks.
You judge from some lines of code to the habits of a whole group?
Qui, mademoiselle. C'est la vie. What did you expected?
Actually I was curious if any other code is in the spirit of posted one. I wasn't disappointed. (By viewing HTML part of documentation)
I also don't try to say it was a crap. I seen worse, but It doesn't reach a reasonable standard.
