Whenever I needed a little program to parse text files, or whatever, I
cranked it out quick with Turbo Professional and later Object
Moved on to Paradox / Windows but the project died in 1999 and I've been
mostly setting up Windows SBS Server networks, routers, etc. since.

a work requirement, but what a joke - minimum "hello, world" pgm is over
1MB and anything but strict in the programming sense.
What program do I have a chance learning for utility windows (and maybe
someday Linux) programs; knowing that I won't be spending 10 hours a day
doing it and with less than 5 year learning curve?
