Inspirations taken from E.W Dijkstra.

It has been remarked to me (to my great regret. I cannot remember by whom and so I am unable to give credit where it seems due) that once a person has understood the way in which variables are used in programming, he has understood the quintessence of programming. ~ O. J. Dahl, E. W. Dijkstra, and C. A. R. Hoare (Eds.). 1972. Structured Programming. (p11)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
